$4,800 in Text Messages

A few of you wrote on a previous blog that you could easily text more than 10,000 messages per month.  I have no idea how, but you either have unlimited texting on your phones, or you're about to get a punishment like the 13-year-old featured in Thursday's show!

Her parents disabled [smashed] the phone, reprimanded [grounded] the teen, and they're all learning [paying] a lesson:  Don't send thousands of texts without a texting plan.  And if your grades go down when texting goes up, it might be a good idea to wait until you're home before you light up the keyboard.

Here's what I wanna know:  Is texting even allowed in your classes?  If it isn't, could you still text 700 messages a day after school?
