    So You Think You Text Alot?

    US teen clocks up 14,528 text messages

    Greg Hardesty has described himself as "speechless" after his 13-year-old daughter "racked up 14,528 text messages in one month", as the shaken dad himself put it last week.

    Hardesty, 45, explains that offspring Reina achieved the impressive SMS tally between 27 November and 26 December. Her 22-year-old sister Hana managed a "comparatively modest" total of 7,101 messages, while sibling Marina, 24, trailed with just 700.

    I'm sure that will be a nice bill to receive.

    I think it works out to be 1 text every 2 minutes for 30 days.

    My brother was on the o2 £10/month 300 texts allowance, but was using his texts rapidly

    Anyway, to cut the story a bit, my mum put him on a Vodafone package, where he went over the allowance of about 500 texts or whatever it was.
    She cancelled
    They called back & offered for an extra £2.50/month (making it £12.50) he can have UNLIMITED texts. By law they have to specify a figure (they said 3000 texts, but anything after that wont get charged).


    1st month - 2400 texts
    2nd month - 4000+ texts

    one breakdown was 269 texts in one day (dunno if he topped that on the 2nd month).

    The majority are to this one girl. Shocking.

    packages like that are called fair usage policies. They can't charge you for going over a certain amount but the can call or text you to ask you to calm down a bit.

    i thought so:

    The AT&T bill confirmed that both incoming and outgoing messages counted towards the total, but Hardesty asked: "Really, though. Is that any consolation?"

    In america they get charged for each msgs, sent AND received!! but 7k is still alot lol
