We Send 4.1 Billion Text Messages a Day


According to the twice yearly CTIA survey about text messages and mobile usage, America sends an average of 4.1 billion, yes BILLION, text messages a day. Our grand total for the half-year so far is 740 BILLION text messages. What are we? A bunch of 12-year-old girls? How many of these conversations do you think took place with users right next to each other? Here are a few more stats that might rock yo’ boat:

� Some 1.1 trillion minutes were used in the first half of the year (or 6.9 million minutes per day)

� There�s 246 million mobile data capable devices out there. You know, phones, 3G cards for your laptop, etc.

� Carriers made $19.4 billion in gross revenue from data plans in the first half of the year. Again, that�s gross revenue, so you�d have to take into account how much it costs to keep everything working, salaries, etc.
