FL Teen sends 35,000 texts in one month... twice!

CLERMONT, FL (AP) - A Clermont man is lucky Sprint offers an unlimited text messaging plan.

Brad Cox's 14-year-old daughter, Emilee, sent or received more than 35,000 messages a month twice in the past year. Cox called the Orlando Sentinel to report his daughter's excessive texting after reading an article on the Web about a California girl who topped 14,000 in a month.

Emilee's highest month was June, when she tallied 35,463 messages, or about 1,182 a day.

She attributed the spike to constantly trading text messages with friends while she was at cheerleading camp.

A spokeswoman for Sprint confirmed the number of messages. Cox says as long as his daughter continues to get good grades, he doesn't have a problem with her texting.
