Text Message Use Versus Cell Phone Minutes

Mobile Phone Use: Text Message vs. Cell Phone Minutes

While cell phone voice minutes remain relatively flat, text message use continues to increase, according to a recent study by The Nielsen Group.

From January 2005 through September 2010, the number of voice minutes used by US mobile phone owners remained fairly stable.  The average number of monthly SMS text messages rose by more than 100 in the past year.  While growth in text message use occurred in all age groups, the continued adoption of text message use by middle aged Americans is fueling some of the growth.
