There was an interesting report on Sync Blog today about a young girl who text messaged over fourteen thousand text messages in one month. Now if you narrow that down to a daily average it shows up at a whopping 484 text messages a day. Your probably feeling sorry for the parents who would’ve had to pay a wallet pinching three thousand dollars on a Pay and Talk deal. Luckily the family was on a thirty dollar a month plan with their carrier(AT&T).
What do you think of this? Should parents be more controlling over how much their child is using their mobile device? Do you think there is a certain age that children should not be carrying such a device? I personally would be lucky to send one text message a year. 14 000 a month seems more like an addiction than a hobby, however it’s common for the average teenager in the united states to send 1,742 messages a month.
