Not the exact number of individual text messages or phone calls, but periods of constant texting or talking.
Like 5 messages to one person for 10 min straight, then 5 messages a few hours later to the same person. So that's like 2 conversations in one day.

This has been on my mind for a while.

Some days i'm constantly texting my friends, other days I don't send or receive a single text.

Last week (last mon to this monday) I have had maybe 10 conversations via text (about 20 text messages). I only called my parents, and 1 friend who prefers talking to text, last week.

It makes me wonder how many friends I ACTUALLY talk to and keep contact with, besides school/work...
makes ya feel kinda depressed how bare your social life is (if that matters to any of you lol)

Several dozen text conversations and a few phone calls.

Probably 3-15 a day depending

And I don't even have friends or a social life.

The only person I regularly call/text on the phone is my girlfriend. I usually call her once a day, maybe twice. Other than that, I pretty much only contact people through the phone when I need something.

Must be work/family related.

sometimes a few a day, sometimes none a week, fluctuates with whatever is going on.

an ex girlfriend of mine could keep me occupied all day. at the least we text back and forth for a few hours every night.

my old group of friends has a group chat that occasionally blows up with activity. we've all moved away from each other so it's a nice way to exchange banter.

my sister and i text each other pretty much every day.

girl i'm friends with who goes to school in florida has extended conversations with me on some weeknights. usually twice a week or so.

everything else happens on less than a weekly basis or on a weekly basis for less than a month or so. also conversations on facebook.

0 phone calls...0 texts. I never bother to charge my phone, hate people calling me or even when it makes a beep because it always means some stupid client shit. Everything by email or PM, I tell all my clients not to bother phoning me ever, if they try they never get through anyways, if they don't like it fuk them

I do call my parents once a month though

usually 20 text conversations a day? And the same number of calls. Calls are all for utilitarian purposes though except when I call my grandma

I'm not really interested in most people if I text them for too long tbh so im a bit selective about that

Depends who I'm talking too. I'll rarely have phone calls but sometimes I'll go for a walk just in order to have a nice 30 minute phone call with someone every other week or so.

I'll text a couple of people throughout the day, probably adding up to about 20-30 texts per person throughout an entire day, sporadically though. What's good about texting is that it's a conversation at your convienience.

WhatsApp though...that can be a hundred or more messages a day in my group WhatsApp with my mates and certain individuals too.

70 minute incoming 55 outgoing for last month. I mostly talk with my family and room mates on phone. Whatsapp with rest of the people. Yet we have a close friends group at whatsapp which never stops beeping. Cant say we talk intellegent stuff tho. Mostly troll pictures and under the belt jokes.

Besides that I do skype for 1-2 hours a day. And chat with 1-2 girls on whatsapp

Do people usually differentiate texts and whatsapp? It's pretty much the same thing to me since most of my texts are automated messages/spam/people above the age of 50.

I use WhatsApp like an instant messenger so sometimes I'll send like 4 or 5 shorts messages at a time. Texting I'll consolidate those into 1 big message.

Oh that makes sense if you're being charged per text. With friends I type the way I think which is usually a bunch of messages at once. I've only had an extended conversation over text with my best friend because it was actually imessage so I guess that doesn't count as texts either. I'd exceed my text limit in a couple of days if I didn't use whatsapp or fb messenger.

I have unlimited texts but it's really only about 3k so when I'm using SMS I always group stuff I'm saying together so yeah.
