Text messaging explodes as teens embrace it as the centerpiece of their communication strategies with friends. Cell phones are not just about calling or texting – with expanding functionality, phones have become multimedia recording devices and pocket-sized internet-connected computers.

Cell phones help bridge the digital divide by providing internet access to less privileged teens.

However, voice calling is still the preferred mode for reaching parents for most teens.
