    I gave my number to a guy I met on a dating site... Ugh. Big mistake. He managed to send me around 75 messages in two 6-hour blocks.

    I made it quite clear that he'd used his quota with me, and to go away.

    I love texting and hate talking on the phone. Partially due to the fact that the last FIVE places I've lived have really shoddy signal, so calls drop constantly unless I go stand outside/in the front lawn/back porch/etc. Incredibly annoying. I often prefer written communication if it's something casual anyway, gives me the chance to think more about what I want to say. If it's important I call or wait until I'm face to face though. That way body language/voice tone can help me communicate, of course

    It's a general annoyance, for me.

    With how large my hands are, it's difficult for me to text. And I just find it pointless to take up to minute to type out something that I could just say within a few seconds.

    The only time I'll text, is if someone texts me first and I must reply back.

    I think texting is a retreat in technology. Before telephones we had ticketape and telegram systems. These were based on some form of written communication and disappeared for the most part with the introduction of the telephone. Why? Because speaking is an easier form of communication than writing. So how then is texting an advance in communication?

    why yes...yes I do. From the moment someone texts me in the morning until I go to bed at night. One could even say I'm doing it right now because I'm on my cell. For all of 2010 I used 235 minutes of voice. I have the cheapest plan of 450 voice minutes a month. Never use em. Texting is a more private communication; no one hears your convo. Plus I can put more thought into a text because I like to write. Text me! hahahaha

    I use about 300 minutes and 2500 text messages a month. I wouldn't say that is fiendish.

    The folks that need to know g-mail me. Texting is meh - already got a killer data plan and a smart-ass phone with SWYPE interface that makes it as easy as one may pick their schnozz. ;D T-9 dictionaries on 12-key flip/slide/bar phones were no fun for me.
