Do you text like all the time? Do you think its easier than calling someone?

Well sometimes it gets annoying because you dont want to type a hole lot. and i was just texting my friend, and i got annoyed with it because i didnt want to type all the stuff.


discuss.

Yep.
Plus I have a sore throat,so it's easier than talkingl.
And it provides something to do when stuck in this horrid hospital all day.

I hate texting.
It takes me like 5 minutes to make a message.
And it costs me 15cents everytime.
I like calling people. It's easier, and I like it better.
I don't know why people text as much as they do.
And I hate those text messages that say text evry1 in your contacts and blah blah blah, I delete them.

I like to text better then calling because it's just easier for calling.
Sometimes I dislike it though because I have to type really longg messages.

But in all,it's a lot easier to get answers most of the time. But with homework things I usually will call instead of text cause then I can get my answer faster and simplier.

I'm not a super fast texter but I can text ok. and I only do it sometimes, like not every single second of the day.

i used to text a lot. now i have gone way down b/c of my phone plan and i really dont want to pay 20 cents for each one i go over. before the only people i really texted were my cousin sydni, my step-sister ashiah, my cousin angelina, and my sister in law sherri. my sister in law sherri, all she does is text. they have unlimited. the main reason she does that is they have a 9 yr old, 6 yr old, and 3 yr old. their house is ALWAYS crazy! and she doesnt have to answer messages as soon as she gets them like you do with calls.

I don't have a texting plan.
I can text, but it's too expensive to be bothered.
I may ask for one this Xmas, but until I have friends to text, I won't be asking.

I call and text a lot. I'm constantly texing, and I text very fast. As to which one I like better...I don't know they're different. Sometimes I want to call people but if it's just a little question or I'm bored in class I'll text.

All the time. I think its easier to text, especially when i want to be descreat. Like at rehearsal, I don't want to bother anyone by calling people. And in class, texting is a must. haha no teachers let you call people.

We'd get sent to the principals office if we text in class. We're not supposed to have any electronic device in class (we're allowed them in school, just not class).
Our desk are made so that if you put your hands under the desk, the teacher could see them. So it just doesn't work.

I text all the time. It's especially good to use during breaks at dance or if you're in a busy place and won't hear the person.

The first time they catch you texting they take your phone away for the day and you get it back at the end of school.

The second time, you get sent to the office.
The third time you get detention.
The fourth time and the principal takes your phone and your parents have to come with you to the school to get it so they can talk.

i text a lot. i have unlimited. but i also have a teenage brother and sister on the plan and they text a lot too. i think it's easier than calling. i hate calling people. in school we're not supposed to even have cell phone on the campus but like everyone has one anyway so there's nothing they can really do about it. and the rules on punishment depends on the teacher really. like they usually tell you to put it away and some take it and keep it and give it to the principal. i've never had my phone taken away but i do text in class.

The rules don't really depend on the teacher at my school.
They'll pretend they didn't see it, but really most of them will take it away. Because it's just the rule. Lie about something stupid to the teacher? You stay in at break.

I would be pissed if my teacher took my cell for the entire day. I would just wait until class the next day to get it, I'm not missing my bus for that stupid thing.

The only exception any teacher has made to our rules, is that we can listen to our Ipods during math tests.

I used to have 200 a month. I wouldn't really use it so I took it off. Its not really worth it though since all the companies raised texting to $0.15 a text..It really adds up if you aren't keeping track.

I text practically all the time and any calls I do make are to my parents (as they haven't mastered how to compose or read a text quite yet! LOL)

I text in class quite a lot, mainly to my boyfriend to find out whether he can pick me up or not. I'm lucky to have pretty laidback lecturers who will just ask you politely to put your phone away if they catch you, however I've been told that not all lecturers are like that and will punish you if you're caught playing with you're phone.

Thank god for unlimited texting. If I didn't have it, I'd be in serious trouble with my bill.

But I forced my parents to get it for me. They expect to move me 600+ miles away from my friends and not let me stay in touch? I think not. ;)

I text my one really close friend at least 20 a day if not more....so yeah. I like to text. :)

Hmm depends texting is not only expensive but it takes a long time to write them so I am not really a big fan of texting.
