Charlie and Merlyna,
These are fascinating numbers; what are the sources of these statistics (for those of us who'd like to cite them in future research)?

Thanks, Charlie for your info...
This is interesting... I'm curious to know about other European countries...
Meanwhile, here some 'numbers' from Asia ... for comparison..
in Hong Kong, where 83% of total population are using cellular-phones,
there're only 23 SMS messages sent per month  per head on average.
Meanwhile, in China 124, Singapore 219, and Philippines 466 SMS
In Indonesia, telco company says it's 4 messages per day per head.. so in
average is roughly 120/mo...
