Instead of talking on their cellphones, people are browsing the Web, listening to music, watching television, playing games and sending e-mail and text messages, according to a New York Times report.

The number of text messages sent per user increased by nearly 50 percent nationwide last year. Furthermore, for the first time in the United States, the amount of data in text, e-mail messages, streaming video, music and other services on mobile devices in 2009 surpassed the amount of voice data in cellphone calls.

“Originally, talking was the only cellphone application,” said Dan Hesse, chief executive of Sprint Nextel. “But now it’s less than half of the traffic on mobile networks.”
