In countries around the world, text-message traffic has been shrinking because Internet-powered alternatives are becoming so widely used. American carriers have fought off the decline — until now.

For the first time, the American wireless market saw a decline in the total number of messages sent by each customer each month, according to a report published Monday by Chetan Sharma, an independent mobile analyst who is a consultant for wireless carriers. In the third quarter of this year, cellphone owners sent an average of 678 texts a month, down from 696 texts a month in the previous quarter.

11/16/2012 Cell Phone Storm Tips

Keep phones and phone accessories — batteries and chargers — in sealed plastic bags to avoid water damage.

If you have an extra phone battery and you have power, charge that battery so it is ready.

Add to your phones contact list all key emergency phone numbers and email addresses, including police, fire and rescue agencies; schools and service people.

If you are being evacuated, forward home or work phone calls to your wireless number.

Use your phone's camera to take photos or video of your property and valuables before the storm hits, so you have before photos if your home suffers storm damage.

If cell service is down in your area, but your home Wi-Fi network is working, switch to Wi-Fi on your phone.

Expect high-call volume, which can lead to network congestion. If that is the case, you will hear fast busy signals on your wireless phone. If that happens, hang up, wait several seconds and then try the call again. That allows your original call data to clear the network before you try again.

NASA just made it easier to catch a glimpse of the International Space Station — the largest manmade structure in space — as it soars across the night sky. The best part: no telescope required.

11/12/2012 Post Storm Communication Lessons

If someone you love is caught in the storm, the major cellphone providers are hoping you'll resist the urge to place a checking-in phone call and send a quick text instead.

Sending a text, as opposed to placing a phone call, will help the recipient of your good wishes save battery power, and it will also free up wireless networks for emergency workers. You also have a better chance of getting through with a text when the networks get busy, Verizon explains in a statement.

Saving battery power was key for friends and family members hit by Sandy.

Verizon suggests people use social networks such as Twitter and Facebook to check in on friends, and to let people who are in Sandys path inform friends and family members how they are doing.
