TXT me K?

According to the latest statistics, the average person now sends 390 text messages per month, and makes 230 actual phone calls.
AND, there are TWICE as many people who actively use texts to communicate than who use email.

The main reason people have been FLEEING from email to texting is spam.  About 65% of the email that the average person receives is spam.  No more than 10% of the texts you get are spam . . . and even that seems high.

Texts are also a much better way to get a message to someone QUICKLY.  The average text is read within four minutes of when you send it . . . the average e-mail is read within 48 HOURS.

About two-thirds of people who have cell phones use text messages.

Also, by the end of this year, it's estimated that 60% of the world is going to have a mobile device that gives them Internet access, whether it's a smartphone, a laptop, an iPad, or portable video game system.  (--Or a really souped up pager, I guess.)
