Our <3 Affair with Texting

According to CTIA, the volume of text messages sent and received exploded in 2006. In June of 2005, 7.3 billion texts were sent, compared with 12.5 billion texts sent in June of 2006 -- a 71 percent increase.

"Clearly, it is becoming a mainstream way for Americans to communicate and stay in touch," said Joe Farren (CTIA Wireless spokesman), adding that he expects the use of text messaging to continue to grow among the 220 million wireless subscribers in America today.
