Texting More than Talking

I was reading on a certain article on msn.com that, American cell phone users are sending more text message than they are making phone calls. But, this is not a surprised to me, because way back in the Philippines texting is not new, in fact, it was reported that Philippines is the texting capital of the world because texting is cheaper than making a call. Unlike here, it does not really matter if you are on a plan because you pay the same amount every month whether you used your minutes or not.

"Short Message Service, or SMS, text messaging first became popular in Europe and Asia, because it was much cheaper to send short text messages than make an actual phone call. In countries such as the Philippines, the cost of sending one text is less than a penny. And in Europe, where cell phone users are still penalized with high roaming charges between countries, texting is still a more economical form of communication."
