Do you send texts the whole day?
I don't know if i should be impressed or saddened.....
did you hear about that middle school girl that sent like 30,000 text messages or something crazy like that?
14,000, and yeah i did hear lol.
WHAT?! 30,000 text's?!

Wow... That's a lot of texts!
You think you'd survive on the 200 iPhone text plan like I manage to do? lol
i think that's a text every 5.5 minutes
You must be so proud.
You know i thought about that. What if it said 8100 of 200. hahah
Yep. 44,000 minutes in a month almost / 8,100 comes out to be around that.
Why so many text messages? Curious?
Hmm. Pretty awesome. Try for 10,000 next month. I know you could do better.
Well, a little over 50% is probably to one person. Who is a girl of course. 40% is to like 5 other people, then the other 10% is just random little conversations.
I know, lol. I'm going to try. I think i can.
This is the most i've ever texted. Last month it was at around 2300 ish.
perhaps spend more face-time with this girl instead of texting? that's my "of course" course of action when it comes to women though.
Thats 261 texts a day bro. I bet your thumbs look like Hellboys.
This is mainly when I'm at work or at night. I can actually text at my job too. I barely text during school either.
Why would you text that often when you could just phone her?
I don't like talking on the phone. Neither does she. To be honest i've only used 28 minutes this month, not including mobile to mobile.
I love texting because you don't have to start or end a conversation with someone. And you can think before you actually hit that send button.
I'm both and how did you find that info out?
It was on digg. And it was only a little over 14,000
Your amount of texts was on digg? I'm talking bout your personal info, is it on att.com?
This was my busiest month so far, usually I send about ~10,000 in a month, it's hard to imagine when I didn't even have txting...
I think the biggest amount I've heard of someone in a month was iJustine, she was on the news about her AT&T bill in a box video, and said she sends rougly ~30k/month
I don't know about you, but I can think before speaking, too.
On the comments of the article I read about the girl who sent the 14,000 texts, a large number of people claimed they were unimpressed because they routinely sent over 20,000 texts per month. I find it hard to believe that that large of a number of people routinely text over 20,000 a month. One of course claimed to know someone who sent over 40,000. BS.
If they sent 21,000 a month, that would be 700 a day, or one text every one minute and 20 seconds of every hour they are awake every day. And 30,000? That is more than one text every minute of every day (all these calculations based on 8 hours of sleep a night). If it were to take them 10 seconds on average even to write a text, that's almost two solid hours per day for the 20,000 and almost 3 hours per day for the 30,000. And that's just the action of writing the text, not reading the return text, figuring out what to say, or anything. If a kid in school can send that many texts, something is not right.
I don't see that as something to be proud of...it's almost kind of sad. It makes me think about a friend my wife used to have, who would constantly mass-text everyone things like "I just had lunch" or "It's cold today". It's like she was so desperate for contact that she just texted crap non stop in the hopes that someone would talk back to her. I don't think saying "I spend most of my time typing text messages" is something to brag about.
I'm also a firm believer of the huge reliance on texting being why so many people can't write a comprehensible sentence these days. Take a good spin around these forums and it becomes very apparent.
Someone needed Twitter
I feel the same way. I don't like talking on the phone either and would rather text cause i can choose when I want to respond. I don't think i'll ever go over 3000 txt though
