Verizon Wireless Customers sent/receive 10 Billion SMSs this June
Now we know why you got that sore thumb, you’ve been texting just like those Verizon Wireless Customers, who sent/received more than 10 billion text messages in June 2007. The users also sent and received more than 200 million multimedia messages (MMS), which include picture and video messages in June. This has resulted in a 100% jump from the September 2006 figures, when they first touched the 5 billion mark.
Just for info sake, if a person were to send a single text message every 15 seconds, it would take more than 4,750 years of continuous texting to send 10 billion text messages and more than 95 years to send 200 million multimedia messages.
