I couldn't live without text messaging.

Its a complete life line, and its way less expensive then calling all the time.

I can't use all of the little text shortcuts for texting, I just can't. I always spell things out and use punctuation.

I text mostly, barely call.... it's cheaper for me too... but I do hate the abbreviations, and we barely use them here thank god!

but what is T9??? is that where the phone makes up words when you type a letter??? god that function is ANNOYING!

the only reason why i didn't switch to the iPhone was because the unlimited texting plans sucked.

honest.

Same here. Last night I sent a text to someone because he's sitting in the hospital with his father and it didn't feel right to call. I labored forever over a simple sentence and he wrote back in like 2 seconds. He's much younger and it made me feel really old. I'm getting better, though, now that I've figured out punctuation.
