We have unlimited text messaging on all of our phones. DS, 13, has had a phone for about 4 months. I love him having a phone, it has really been helpful for us now that he is in 7th grade, traveling for sports, etc. But we just got a summary of text messages for last month. I sent 8 text messages and received 12. He sent 1,585 text messages and received 1,817. !!!!!!!! That just doesn't even seem possible!!!!! How does one text that much????
Now, obviously this is not costing us extra, since we went the unlimited route (mainly because DS texts a lot for work), but it just doesn't seem right!!! I will say, he is pretty good about not texting inappropriately, ie., during dinner or while interacting with other people... However. This is just ridiculous. He has a limit of time that he can spend on his computer, and I think once I kick him off his IM'ing, he just switches to his phone. I don't know how else you can rack up that many text messages in a month. What to do, what to do.
