When I recorded how often I use my phone I found that I only sent 9 texts and spent about 3 hours in one day. Most of that time was spent on Facebook and Instagram.

I got my first phone when I was a freshman in high school. For more information on that check out my video.

On average I spend about 10 hours on my cell phone a day.

Monthly, I send/receive around 2,000 text messages.
