Teen Totals Over 14,000 Text Messages In One Month

The parents of a California teen are wondering if their daughter does anything else but send text on her phone.

13-year-old Reina Hardesty sent an astonishing 14,528 text messages in one month, that's an average of about 484 texts a day. When her parents got their cell phone bill, t was 440 pages long.

They found out that Reina was so addicted to texting, that sometimes she will text her best friend when they are sitting right next to each other!

Fortunately the teen has an unlimited text plan or she would have been in big trouble. Her father figured without the unlimited plan, their cell phone bill would have been more than 2,900 dollars.

Reina's parents have since put restrictions on her cell phone usage, they say she can no longer text message after dinner.
