Average cell phone user sends 200 text messages per month!!

100 Comments

BlackBerry ThumbSo how are your thumbs feeling today? Newsmax is reporting that in 2007, the average cellphone user sent 188 text messages per month, which equals roughly 2,256 texts a year. Sweet mama! Now, obviously this study refers to cellphone users and not smartphone users, which I would assume text far more often.

Does anyone have a rough estimate of how many texts and emails they fire off a month from their BlackBerry? Post a comment and let us know. Also, stay tuned for an upcoming interview with a medical specialist about the hazards of BlackBerry thumb. Seriously.

    Well I am 12 years old and I think texting is part of my life. I have friends, a boyfriend, and parents to text to. I own a Rumor phone that has a full keyboard and use around 5,000 a month but seeing as it is December I will probably hit up in the 10,000 area. I know it is a lot but that is sent and received.

    I send like 600 a month. I have a Cell PHONE, not a portable instant messenger. I don’t get the point of sending a text unless you can’t talk to someone (like in class, for example). I talk for something like 360 minutes a month or so.

    My sister sent 17,000 texts in one month. 17,000!! I can’t even get to 1,000! How can anyone *possibly* text that much?? My parents are a little concerned. 58 of her minutes were phone calls. Freaking crazy.

    In response to those who went over 100,000… Wow. Even I am impressed. Currently I am at 22,000. My billing cycle ends on the 19th. I average anywhere between 500-1000 a day. I could never imagine going over 100,000 not only would my thumbs be dead, but how does one have the time? Thank G-d for the BlackBerry =D. I hold the record for the most texts in one month at my school… I am hoping within the next five years I can potentially reach 100,000 a month. I’ve been increasing my monthly about 2,500 per month. Anyone know how long it will take to reach 100k??
