The UK went sms wild in February
The shortest month of the year proved to turn up into a killer record of sent sms in the United Kingdom. February's text messaging figure reached a total of 2.19 billion messages, according to figures released on the 29th of March by the Mobile Data Association (MDA). Person-to-person texts sent across the UK GSM network operators last month. The numbers show an increase of 7.2% compared to the total sent sms during the same period in 2004. It looks like Cupidon was incredibly fast at throwing love arrows… On February the 14th, 92 million text messages were sent via handsets and only 12 million cards were estimated to have been delivered by the Post Office. There goes the tradition! No more stinky post stamps, no more sticky tongues…just fired up fingers .
