The statistical population consisted of all high school students studying in the academic year (2011-2012) which totally are 7520 people of which 364 students were selected as study samples using random sampling method. Research tools include questionnaire for addiction to text messaging and NEO-FFI questionnaire for 5 main personality factors. Pearson correlation coefficient and t-test were used for data analysis. Data analysis results showed that neuroticism and addiction to text messaging are positively related and it has a significant negative correlation with extraversion. Other findings indicate that there is no significant difference between male and female students in terms of addiction to SMS and personality characteristics.
