So a pair of friends from Pennsylvania decided it would be funny to try and set the world record for text messaging. As it turns out, one of these fine young individuals has T-mobile and the “unlimited” text messaging package. Well, as it turns out unlimited actually has a limit, 100,000 text messages a month to be exact. Problem being, nobody has crossed that mark yet so there really hasn’t been a method in place to handle those who might achieve that number. So as it turns out, sending 217,000 text messages equates to $26,000 in overage charges. Of course, these two gentlemen were trying to best the previous record of 182,000 messages and while they managed to achieve it, they also managed to create quite the buzz. Good job guys, you managed to set a totally useless world record. The individual with T-mobile has been promised a credit.
Whats your highest text message count in a month? I think mine hovers in the 14,000 range from my more youthful days. I’m sure a good number of you will shock me in the comments!
