K. So this girl got an Iphone, and unlimited text as a service. AT+T details every text sent, so I imagine she sent a bunch, because her bill arrived in a box, rather than an envelope. see for yourself:

How the heck does she text so much with the iphone? Anybody here use one? I had one all last week in Indianapolis and the touch screen texting pissed me off so bad.

she is hot but lets not forget her obvious downsides

1. she bought an iphone :rolleyes:
2. she thinks $250/mo is a justified phone bill
3. 30,000 texts.... WTF she must be needy as ****
4. Judging by how many texts there are in just one month, I've determined that IF she drives, she is obviously texting while doing so, making her car a death trap.


if you text that much you need to just pick up the phone and call the person, her hands already look like they are deteriorating and she may be suffering from arthritis.

It's not just the iPhone, AT&T sends a full breakdown of everything you do every month. We have 4 phones on our account and I think our bill was around 80 pages last month.

You have 4 regular phones, a data phone/intarwebz phone logs every time you log onto the web, and AT&T feels the need to itemize that. They are such a nub company it isnt even funny any more, I wish they would have fallen instead of merging with Cingular.

No, I know that..I'm just saying..they log EVERYTHING you do. Texts, calls, everything..even on a normal plan. I'd hate to see their paper bill every month. :o

Not just him - I think she's pretty hot as well!

I just got in a big argument with my wife about her talking on her cell all the time, so the text thing would drive me up a wall.

you could see her old-lady hands. 30,000/month is roughly 1000 texts a day.... how is that possible? Assuming she sleeps 8 hours a day, she has 16 hours to make that many texts.

Very roughly... that's one text a minute.

basically she could have a full time job texting and i would question that much activity.

TheRedBarron

It is data charges as well, even though she has unlimited data on the phone, every time she logs into the net it puts it on the bill as a text/data fee so it is 30,000 data charges not necessarily texts, so she could have just left it logged onto google or something for a couple of hours here and there and it would register as numerous data fees.

it's not just data charges, barron. in the ABC news article, she claims she sent 35,000 - 40,000 before she got the iphone and changed carriers. looks like the iphone slowed her down. i don't know whether she's counting incoming or not.

She needs to send 41.6 messages an hour for all 24 hours of the day, every day for 30 day billing cycle. to make her 30,000 quota... damn

So lets be a little more realistic and say she is up and going for 16 hours a day... 62.5 messages a hour for 16 hours out of each day...

Cut that in half for incoming texts... 31.25 texts an hour for 16 hours a day assuming she receives just as many as she sends.

Ok, so maybe my standards for things beyond looks are a little high, but she still isn't that great. Chin, Lips, and eyebrows are screwy. On the completely unrealistic scale (This includes people so hot, they wouldn't even see me... and a 5 is actually average.) I'd only give her a 6 or 7. On the realistic scale, again purely based on looks, she would probably be like an 8.5. Severe needyness and dependancy on messaging brings her down severely, but since you guys don't play that game here...

tl;dr. she's only an 8.5 max.

Yeah, that's cool..I'm the same way and you know that, I just think she looks good. I don't really know what her real personality is like. She's definitely self conscious of herself, she always covers herself up on camera.

She doesn't have enough tits to shove in anyone's face. :dodgy: Her body is good, but it just is a little less curvy than that...

I'd personally rather someone that I can communicate with on a higher level, but I'm fine looking at the other... ah... "specimens." :D
