  • In Dec 2008 Americans sent 100 billion text messages, double the number of Dec 2007. Average person sent 407 text messages, double the 188 sent in Dec 2007. At the same time, the average length of a cell phone call declined last year to 2.3 minutes. That's the shortest chat time since the 1990s, before mobile devices and cheap calling plans became widely available to everyday consumers. The peak talk time came in 2004, when a caller on average chatted for 3.05 minutes.
