I'm sorry...Maybe I'm just old,but why have a PHONE to type a message?
That's like having a TV,to listen to the radio.

:lol: I know right? The only time I found texting to be a good alternitive was when I was doing hurricane relief in NOLA. I could not get a signal, and, if I put in a text, it would automatically send whenever a signal did pop up.

Other than that, text messages annoy the **** out of me. I spend enough time on the cell...I don't need to spend triple the time typeing in what I could just call the person and say.

Makes zero sense to me.

Wanna know what's creepier? With the right software and phone, they don't have to call to know where you are...Or at least where your phone it.
