Do you text?

I don't have a "Smart" phone with the qwerty keyboard, so I normally use T9. Any tips?

Uh, I'm stuck in the stone age and I still use a phone that plugs into the wall So yeah, no texting here.

(It's cordless, but the base still plugs into the wall )

No, I don't own my cell phone. It's like 4 years old, work issued. I'm sure it does text b/c I receive SMS every time a server goes up/down, but we don't text each other we use the direct connect (there's 4 of us sharing a pretty limited plan).

I text occassionally, but usually i find it pretty annoying to type on the thing and a phone call to be easier. My roomate texts constantly and it drives me freaking insane. It's click click click all the time. Not to mention that she does it while we're all hanging out and talking and while driving.

Pretty rarely, it's kinda the only way to contact my friends it seems.

Although i insist on full sentences and punctuation, just because with some of the messages i get it takes me about a week to decode.

I'm a 19 year old girl, what do you think?


Carlos, there's no way you can set your phone on "ABC" mode? T9 sucks, unless you're planning on drunk texting, in which case it can't be beat.

I go through phases with it. I like getting them, but I'm a bit OCD and I have an English degree so I fell the need to spell shit out properly on the replying end, so that kinda sucks for me. But I spent a lot of money learning how to read and write, so I want to make sure it was worth it.
