13y old sends 14.528 sms

teen-girl-sending-smsThe parents of a 13 year old girl in California were quite surprised when they received a phone bill that counted 440 pages.  It turned out that the girl had sent 14.528 SMS messages in a month time. That’s basically one message every two minutes that she was awake.  As explanation she said she just felt like talking. 

The bill could have been up to 2.100 Euro, but fortunately the parents had taken an “unlimited messages” subscription.

A survey, done in the 2nd semester of 2008, has shown that an American mobile phone user sends on average 357 text messages per month.  That number goes up to 1.742 for adolescents between the age of 13 and 17.
