How many text messages do you normally send each month? I heard a story on the news about a 16 year-old girl who sent over 33,000 text messages in a one-month billing cycle. How in the world is this possible?! I checked my bill, and I sent about 1,300 last month, but this other girl averaged that per day! I think that is just absolutely crazy. So, how many do you average per month?

I dont send that much sms messages. It will take my entire day. But I do send around 50 to 100 messages a day. which includes, good morning, good evening and good night wishes with a message to my friends.

well, here in our country, the bill is not a problem, because you can avail an unlimited text service for 50cents and you can text in your network as much as you want for a day.

that is ridiculous! i would like to see her try and live without her phone for a week. i dont really know how many i average a month. i used to have my cell phone attached to my fingers but now i can live without it. i dont text that much during the day either, mostly at night. but probably around 200 a day.

That is crazy. That would average out to about 45 or so an hour. That would mean that she was sending a text almost every minute of every day. That is just insane. The first time I saw a fraction of that on my daughters phone it would be so gone. How could nobody notice that she was using her phone every minute of every day for an entire month?

I think both of those numbers are large and I can't even comprehend how someone could really send that many text messages. I probably average close to 300 a month. I checked my bill for last month and it said I sent about 260 text messages. I was worried that I was getting too close or at least going over my text limit but thankfully I'm not! That's such a relief! Text messages are too expensive to send by themselves.
