Aaron Smith for Pew Internet and American Life Project on text messaging:
Young adults are the most avid texters by a wide margin. Cell owners between the ages of 18 and 24 exchange an average of 109.5 messages on a normal day—that works out to more than 3,200 texts per month—and the typical or median cell owner in this age group sends or receives 50 messages per day (or 1500 messages per month).
Although I prefer text messaging to phone calls I still only consider myself a moderate texter, but 109 texts per day don’t seem like that much. So maybe I text a lot more than I thought.
