Customer sends 662,000 texts in a month, feels proud of his accomplishment
Well, it seems the ongoing wild race for the largest number a text messages sent via a cell phone has somehow managed to escape our attention. The current record holder is a US customer of AT&T, who says he sent exactly 662 258 text messages in 30 days using his iPhone 3GS. He reveals details about his accomplishment in video and claims his itemized, monthly paper bill contains more than 12,000 pages. We tend to believe that. Anyway, we don´t have the slightest clue as to how many trees it takes to get enough paper for that number of pages, but what we do know is you probably need a lot. Or at least, a lot more than someone who undoubtedly used software to cheat his way to winning the unofficial competition deserves. How do we know? Well, 662,258 text messages sent in 30 days is equal to about 15 per minute and you would have to do it like 24-7.

The Dumbest thing is Wireless carriers cant even print TXT messages for this exact reason, not even to mention sending him the Full BIll Deatils pro actively. Working for a wireless company I can say this is 100% false and would never happen. If they sent him a BOX of paper with his bill, he paid out the ass for all of it, and in this demo it was 1 bill copied 13,000 times from his stoner freind at KINKO'S...Obviosly NOT TRUE. My theory, a serious typo on his At&t bill and he ran with it....Loser

haha....some people have too much time on their hands. I would have to agree too with phonearena that this had to of been completed via some kind of software......any details on how detailed the txt msgs were? Perhaps if its its a "lol" or ":D" in the msg then maybe id believe it.....

Oh, and trying to insult things by calling them 'gay' only shows your immaturity and homophobia. And there's no place for either here.

Homophobia is overused... just because someone uses the word "gay" does not mean they are Homophobic. I use the word all the time, and in no way intending to insult the homosexual community. If you are offended by the intent it was used, then you are obviously looking for a reason to be offended... there are too many people trying to victimize themselves and always looking for a reason to be offended. Stop with that. If it was used in a hateful way, then yeah, you may have reason to offended, but seriously, we all don't have to walk on egg shells for each other here.

Screw going green, that's for people who think they can save the planet driving a Prius. You should call it what it really is -- saving $$. Although I doubt they care about that even though I'm sure they wasted a whole $10 probably sending that bill. Amen on the gayphone haha.

Fuck this moron, he is as stupid as this site is for believing he did this, he ran a homebrewed app that sends texts from his phone every 15 seconds and he ran it all month since the texts were basically all sent to the same person. So not a record, just someone who fooled everyone ( including the fucking morons who run this gay ass lame bullshit I Phone jock riding site )

I love the "professional" writing purported by this site. The last line: "and you would have to do it like 24-7." The word in this is the "like". I mean really, how old are the writers for this site anyway? There's absolutely no call to add the word "like" into that sentence. LOL! This site cracks me up...not just with their "reporting" but also by the obvious elementary verbage used in the predictable "reporting".

Well, they have to like keep up with us young people. So like, I totally dig it when they throw "like" into their sentences. Lol. Seriously, though. It only goes downhill from there.

33. VSS_55 (Posts: 43; Member since: 05 Jul 2009)


he didnt actually send that many. he had some program do it. i did some basic math 662000 / 30 days in a month / 24hours, divided by 60 minutes = about 15 text messges per minute (complicated sh!t eh phonearena?) . he should loose the record for using bulk messaging software. maybe noone posted it because he CHEATED... Of course iphonearena had to post a iphone record, fake or not...
