What is the World Record for Text Messages Sent in a Month?

If you have been following mainstream media for the last couple of days, you may have heard about a 13-year-old girl who sent 14,000 text messages in a single month. That sounds like a lot of SMS, but it pales in comparison to the official world record.

A 14-year-old girl from Florida, for instance, used her Sprint phone to send and receive somewhere in the neighborhood of 35,000 text messages. This wasn’t just one freak of nature kind of month either, because she repeated the feat at least one other time. For those of you looking to crunch the numbers, this works out to nearly 1200 text messages a day.

Given these two examples, you’d almost assume that teenage girls were the SMS rulers of the land. Wrong! As it turns out, the person who holds the Guinness World Record for text messages sent in a single month is Deepak Sharma, a grown man. Whereas those girls were able to bring their text messages into five figures, Mr. Sharma bumped it up to six figures.

The current record calls for 182,689 messages in a single month. This works out to 6,100 messages a day or 4.2 messages a minute. In this way, he was effectively sending or receiving a text message every fifteen seconds. These guys had better have unlimited texting plans, because if they were paying for each one at 20 cents or so, Deepak would owe over $36,000 for that month in SMS charges alone.

I’m clearly well behind this trend, as I’ve never sent more than 100 text messages a month.

    Deviating from the aforementioned imbecilic ripostes from Ajmal , Sum Ting Wong , John Baptiste , and Sukhpinder Jatha, I am going to be scrupulous and fairly candid in saying that the paramount figure of messages envoy-ed in a period of a months, is 3 for me. I deem myself to exist as a bit of a neo- luddite and am regularly greeted by the words “antiquated” and “obsolete “. However I am not exclusively a technophobe, de facto I quite enjoy the leisure of some cohorts of technological contrivances

    my record is 12,675,482 a month, no joke

  13. Ez says:

    my friend just showed me her daughters text messaging amount for a month it was 199,998 messages

  14. Considering that my carrier charges the ridiculously high sum of roughly $10 a gigabyte for mobile data, and that an SMS message is up to 160 bytes long (including header), I can send the equivalent of 671,088 text message for a dollar.  It would cost his mobile carrier the unimaginably large sum of nearly 28 cents to carry all those text messages (Assuming that there where all 140 character long).

  27. Brian says:

    I've heard of these records before, and I simply don't buy it. An average of four text messages per minute, every minute of every hour, every hour of every day, every day of the month? Factor out at least a few hours a day for sleep and the numbers become even more suspect.

  28. guest says:

    I had 35,895 this month.

  29. guest says:

    i have a friend of mine whos on my plan with me and in 8 days she had already sent 10,000+ text messages!
