(Issaquah, WA) With so many people on wireless devices, it’s hard to believe that text messaging is actually on the decline.

Consulting firm Chetan Sharma says for the first time in U.S. history, the average number of monthly texts sent by each user fell last quarter.

Cell phone customers sent an average of about 675 messages per month in the third quarter, down from around 700.
