Teenage lifeline

We recently upgraded my daughter's mobile phone.

As part of her new contract she receives an itemised bill listing all calls, even the free calls included in her plan.

Her first bill turned up this week. It was 17 pages long!

That's 17 double sided A4 pages. Which means it's actually 34 pages long.

On top of all those phone calls she also sent 1235 text messages.

I have no idea what she talks and texts about, but when you add in all the instant messages and MySpace updates she makes she's quite literally never alone.

I was going to ask her if she'd heard of or used things like Twitter or Plurk, but somehow I doubt she has time for them. She's too busy talking to friends or hanging out with them.
