According to a new study the cost of text messages you send in your lifetime can fetch you a luxury car.
Comparison site Rightmobilephone. co.uk's latest study claims mobile phone users will end up paying approximately 28,200 pounds for the thousands of texts they will send in their lifetime.
"Our latest study really highlights how much time and money we spend communicating," the Daily Express quoted Neil McHugh, co-founder of the site as saying.
He added: "I'm sure it will surprise people and I'm sure most would rather be spending eight months of their lifetime doing something a little more exciting."
In the poll of 2,038 mobile phone users, it was found that in an average month they sent around 500 texts and spent 600 minutes talking on the phone.
