    People always say I'm on the high side but eh, I know there are tons of you out there who put me to shame :D

    Avg ~6k/month

    I'm stuck at 200 a month due to the fact, that's what I pay for.

    Must be living with your gf, bf, or wife...and you both must be SUPER busy at work or school....and you've been calling people rather than texting. Right? :confused:

    I did about 25,000 last month.

    My friends always make me tell their parents how many I do, so their 2,000 a month doesn't sound like so much.

    MSN is free ;)

    Edit: If you count my MSN messages as texts then I'd be using thousands per month.

    About 3,000-4,000 per month. But that is with a family of 3.

    For those stuck with 200 you should buy more. There is a code on the board that gives you 750 MSG for 7.49 vs 200 for 5.00. I used it a few days ago.

    I only use like 300 to 400 on a very busy month

    Probably between 1-2k a month. All my friends use Facebook and MSN way more these days so texting is hardly the main way of communication now.

    Probably 600 at the most. It's a shame, I either have to get the cheap 200 text plan and pay 10¢ for each additional text, or get the 1500 text plan and waste $10 a month.

    Our family plan with 5 lines manages to round up about 12,000 messages a month... As far as my phone line goes, I only use about 1500 messages a month.

    about 1-2 per month.
    my daughter, who has a prepaid plan is about 40-50.

    if someone could get a plan to work with Rogers in Canada well then I could see texting 20 or 30 x per month

    I average a little over 3000 per month, but I've done some serious damage before. Luckily, I've always had unlimited plans. :cool:

    I can beat that....zero. If we ever get MMS in the U.S. then I might get to 1-2 per month, if that.
