Do you text a lot?

Our country was once known as the text capital of Asia because people here are so fond of texting and the mobile phone providers are really going to be rich coz of us. It think it is because of the personality of the whole race, we are fond of connecting with each other and we find pleasure in accommoding others. Besides, it is much cheaper to text than to call. Also, most people here aren't really that busy compared to western countries.

When somebody sends me a message, I usually reply as I have enough limit for texting but I haven't done much texting compared before.

What about you, do you text a lot?

My new phone has such small buttons that texting is just not feasible. Never really been a big texter to begin with, so the short answer is no.

I do a fair amount of texting. In fact, I added a messaging package onto my service because of it.

I have never actually texted before. I would rather just call the person up and speak to them. If they need to put it in writing then they can just e-mail me, like was mentioned above already.

Texting is so easssy. I love it. It's so easy and cheap and you don't have to deal with small talk and all that.

Texting is just more to the point for me, lyric. Usually, someone rings me up and they say "hiiii. so....how are you...?" right when I'm at the checkout in a supermarket or something. If they would just get to the point it would be ok. Text is much easier.

Texting is also great for those times when it's difficult or inappropriate to speak on the phone.

Well, there is that attribute, granted. I think that if people have children that it's good for semi-emergencies and emergencies, but I've been in too many meetings where people are texting and that's pretty inappropriate.

Same as calling,texting in mobile phones has to be done properly in proper appropriate times.What im saying is like, when texting for semi-emergeny reasons, t9 text is ok for those times.

I work for a company in which text messaging is vital - so I'm quite sure I do a fair bit more texting than the average user. However, when I'm not at work I never text at all - I'd rather pick the phone up instead go figure
