how often do you text? - Page 2

post #31 of 58
I have NEVER text anyone anything ever. I just can't see what the big deal is. If I have something to say to someone I'll just call them up and tell them.

I use mine to text someone every day, mainly my close friends and my boyfriend. It's so much quicker to use and maybe a bit cheaper than a phone bill every month. (I'm on pay as you go, used to be contract )

I text constantly. I dont really like calling people. The only people I really call are my parents and Rob. Everyone else gets texts. It also keeps me entertained sometimes at work. Or I can send Rob a quick message while it's on my mind without bothering him at work. I upgraded to unlimited text on my phone since it was only $5/mo more on the bill than 250.

I pay NZ$10 a month for $2,000 text messages. I calculated my text useage and that's about 600 texts a month - if I didn't do the $10 text plan it would cost $0.20 a text.

I text alot, I have a plan with unlimited texting, and I have a sidekick so texting is alot of fun. While I do loveee to text, I wont do it while driving, that is just incredibly irresponsible and dangerous. I cant stand when people do that. It can wait until the car is safely parked

Yeah I don't text while doing stuff that requires my concentration
post #37 of 58
Only when necessary. I prefer talking.

You text while driving?? SHAME on you!! Put the stupid phone down and pay attention to the road, not the dumb texting.
I never text, I hate it. I have a cell phone, but only use it if I have too. I hate the phone when I am away from work and do not need to be bothered by a text message.

I don't text... I don't even have a cell phone.
Drives me nuts when someone can't go 5 minutes without pulling out their cell and texting.
post #44 of 58
I think my phone has texting capability, internet, camera, and who knows what else. I don't have any idea how to use any of that, I just wanted a phone.

I txt all the time!! I love it all my friends have Verison so its free for us to txt all day long. It is also alot eaiser for me to send 1 txt to all my family giveing them an up date on my pregnency rather then having to call 15 poeple and say the same thing over and over again. Its qick, easy and if I don't want to talk to someone any more I just stop txting rather then having to make up an excuse to get off the phone. Alot of my friends are going to college so I can send them a quick hey whats up and they can get back to me on their own time without us playing phone tag for weeks! I don't even want to know how many I send a day.

I am also one of those people who has a cell phone mainly for emergency purposes. I never text at all. I hardly even use the phone, honestly, except occasionally to call my hubby and ask him in he needs anything while I'm at the store!
post #47 of 58
I don't like texting. I would much rather talk to someone.
post #48 of 58
Both hubby and I have never texted. And we tell people to NOT text us - as we will not respond. If you want to contact us - call or use email.

In our opinions a phone is a phone - its not a computer, camera or anything else. TALK on the phone if you want to communicate

You know regular cell phones won't be around that much longer. Already you can't find any newer models without cameras.

It's a tool, just another means of communication. But if you happen to be able to use it to IM, check email, etc it can be helpful if for some reason you find yourself without a computer. One of the biggest reasons people tend not to accept the other features is simply not understanding them.
An example would be my in-laws cable receiver. It has a lot of options they claim they will never use because they don't understand them yet. Give them a few months to get use to it and I know they will.

I 2 text!
post #51 of 58
I just recently upgraded my phone, and do txt. Not as much as others do, but I find it handy if you're in a place where you don't want to be heard, or to send short msgs, etc.

Because I pay for unlimited txting, its actually cheaper to text than to call.

I dunno, I'm not a phone person very much. Prefer email or txt.

Ignore it till you can stop or pull over. Life isn't so short that you have to risk cutting it even shorter.
I have to agree with you on that, because I am guilty of texting & driving & actually it used to be very easy when I had a regular cell phone, I wouldn't even need to look at the phone to text because of predictive texting but now I have a blackberry with a qwerty keyboard & I swear I must look like I'm drunk driving b/c it's so hard to text & drive with this phone so I am going to definitely work on that, thanks for the tip!

I text message alot. I use it several times a day.
post #57 of 58
I work weird hours - and sometimes need to be on important decision at the shelter, so I sometimes sneak my cell phone to work with me. That way if something comes up, I can check the text (if not busy) & respond.
post #58 of 58
I am far from good at texting but I do about 300 to folks not on my cell plan a month.... I learned it is a easy quick way to tell someone a quick thought or idea ... I prefer email to texting and texting to talking ... Talking is way easier with my bluetooths
