This might seem comical to most, but is cell phone texting really that big a deal? I know a 12yo kid who just ran up a 10,000 texts in a month (5000 sent, 5000 recieved). I have a cell phone and I don't text at all, never have. I suppose my age has something to do with it (approaching 40). The amount of texts people do blows me away. A little math tells me this kid has texted 166 times a day (5000/30). How can it be that relevant? and what ever happened to dialing the telephone number? This should start a good debate between the kids and the parents on this site! Ding, ding.
