Nielsen estimates Americans ages 13-17 exchange a stunning 3,417 texts/month on average, while those ages 18-24 exchange 1,914 texts/month. While all this texting is leading to a decline in voice usage, carriers probably aren't complaining, given the sky-high profit margins attached to text messages. AT&T (T) ignited some controversy in August by eliminating a moderately-priced messaging plan. (previously)

    This is the reason I switched from AT&T. Things got too pricey. My wife and I switched from another carrier for half the price. Take a look at TMobile.
