I'm glad you found it humorous because that's all that was intended. I hope nobody gets the idea that I'm anti-SMS, because I'm not. I find it very useful for messages such as "running late," "call me," or other "quick and to the point" messages, as Ash put it, when calling is simply a waste of time. But to have lengthy back and forth conversations? Sorry, but I don't believe 1,000 texts per month has anything to do with being born to text, or being young. I really believe it has more to do with gadget fascination, myself.
Whatever your preference is... just enjoy!
And if you look at the results of the poll so far... it's pretty even across the board.

for sure age has something to do with it. i'm a freshman in collage and most if not all my friends text more than they are on the phone. and if you ask any of my friends parents if they text message at all most of the time the answer is no. so to argue against that is kind of silly.
as for me i usually use well over 3000 a month.

If you're asking me whether younger people text more than older people do, the answer is "of course," everyone knows that. They're more fascinated with modern gadgets than older people are (I believe I already made that point).
In this thread, we were asked how much we SMS, and how we have adapted to the iPhone keypad. I simply answered the question. I'm not going to argue with you about which is better. If one wants to SMS back and forth with long extensive conversations rather than speaking on the phone, than go for it. Just don't claim that 1,000 or more of those texts consist of "quick" messages to hundreds of different people due to inconvenience or inability to speak because that's just a crock that no one here could mathematically explain unless they were insane (which I doubt anyone here is).
And while asking your friend's parents if they text, also ask them if they sit for several hours playing video games. I'm sure you'll get a similar response... (and I'm sorry to say, it speaks volumes)
