How many Megabytes is 1000 texts on an iPhone?

I have 1000 texts limit and I have been going WAY over since I got my phone. It only lets me know the MB/GB I sent.

Answer: There is no exact answer to this question, because every page is different. Some pages are single-spaced, some double-spaced, some use large fonts, and some use small fonts. So, the number of characters on a given page can vary widely. Since the number of characters are what determine the page size, you can see why it is hard to estimate how many pages make up a megabyte.

You can be a little more accurate if you know how much space each character takes up. And this is pretty simple because 1 character = 1 byte. So, about 1000 characters equal 1 kilobyte. If a page has 2000 characters on it (a reasonable average for a double-spaced page), then it will take up 2K (2 kilobytes). That means it will take about 500 pages of text to equal one megabyte. If a page has 4000 characters (single-spaced), then it will take about 250 pages of text to equal one megabyte.
