Text messaging: How many times a day do you do it?

Americans send about 20 billion text messages per month, according to a cell phone industry group that has apparently counted them all. Sound like a lot? That's only 85 messages per month per cell phone subscriber, or not quite 3 per day.

By comparison, Korean teenagers are sending an average of 2,000 messages per month -- 60 per day.

How many text messages do you send in a day?


Comments:
I typically sent about 10-15 SMSes/day.

My brother-in-law's 11 year old kid told me that I was too old to text (I'm pushing 40).

About ten of my daily SMSes are for weather and stock quotes.
 
I text 0 times per day, and find my cell phone way too expensive as it is. :)

However, I'm still finding your website interesting!
 
i text about 20~40 times per day. consider pretty normal for my country (Malaysia) ppl. Somehow asian are more "crazy" over this SMS thing, they would text almost everything, even "OK" as a reply.
 
I actually send close to 100-300 texts per day (so that would be 200 to 600 texts total-- sent and received).. may seem like alot but im a texting kind of person.. hate to talk on the phone, and texting lets you be more connected.. plus with a qwerty keyboard on my phone, its easier than calling the person
 
I probably text maybe 1000 in and 1000 out a day. so 2000 total.
But hey, im 14 years old, teenager, Textaholic, What am i to do.
 
is da best way to comunikate without getting busted
 
Teen text queen here. I text who knows how many a day...enough where I have to daily delete my inbox lol But text is good n bad. Simple msgs throughout the day can be uplifting however discussing important issues in txt is not a GOOD IDEA!
 
I send/receive 125/day. Now that I think about it, that doesn't seem like very many. I took that number from an average based on my monthly numbers of 3700+. I need to work on that. I love texting.. very rarely do I talk on the phone.
 
Mt kid(17 year old girl) set a new record last month with a total of 10,756 text messages. She is a honor student top 10% of class so it has not affected her in any negative that I can see.
 
I usally text and 50 to 100 messages a day and so I get about 2,000 texts per month. Not alot but o well
 
My son is texting 500 a day 15,000 a month he is a good student but i think this is a problem, parents give me your feedback, iknow what the teenagers will say. my son is 16. Great kid, but this texting is a problem.
 
My sister(16 years old) text messaged over 23,000 times in one month. I believe she has set some type of record.
 
I use about 4500 text messages a month so thats about 150 a day and thats only sms I have a sidekick so I IM on yahoo, msn, and AIM all day.
 
Last month I texted 3,400 so that's like an average of 109 ish/day? It really isn't all that much , just an extra $20/month for unlimited, since the highest my provider offers is 1,500, except for unlimited.
 
Probably like 300-500. But that's mostly during school when I don't want to get busted in class.
During weekends or summer I prefer calling, unless I'm talking to multiple people.
 
i text about an average of 14,000 text messages a month. so thats like 451 - 466 a day?
 
what did you lot do before texting was around??????
Are these texts factual or just general chit chat???

at 10 seconds a text - texting 1000 a day thats almost 3 hours!!!
What a waste of time....
 
i texted a total of 16,000 texts last month so my mom put a limit on my text messages so i can only have 5,000 txts a month. if you calculate that, that's only me sending 2500 a month, which in reality isn't that many texts. if you calculated the 16,000 txts a month that's about 533 texts a day which is only me sending 266 per day...thats only me sending about 11 texts per hour........not bad. now i can only send about 161 texts a day...about 6 per hour.
 
ii usually text about 300 a day. :) last month ii made 8.796 messages a month. thank qod ii have unlimited text haha

my daughter can send up to 14,000 a month, and almost 500 day, depending on what mood she's in, they are unlimited so i see it isnt a problem. she also is a college freshman doing very well.

If you don't have a text messaging plan, you can send free ones from www.fivedigittext.com. The person receiving the message would get their normal charges. If you create an account, you can even receive replies and save numbers for future use.
 
I text a little over 100 a day
 
I find it hard to physically text a lot. Can you ask your readers what phones they are using?
