    Everyone here does it because it is so cheap and also does not take as much money as a call does.

    I hate texting and the children that do it.... Aint nothing like seeing a little 16 year old girlie driving down the road texting.... U usually can tell which ones they are by the swerving and fu*ked up driving...

    God, I cant wait till my state, let alone the USA, bans cell phone use while driving.... It cant come soon enough...

    I use my mobile quite often, and do use SMS on it probably more than actual phone calls. It's easier to do, and I can avoid conversation when all I want to do is tell them something.

    I text more than I phone - cant stand talking on the phone. If the home phone rings here I dont answer it, and if I dont know the number on my mobile ill cut them off ;)

    My wife has one and uses it constantly. I got one for emergencies only. Irritates the $#@! out of my wife because I don't turn it on. My philosophy is keep the battery up and only use it when you really need it. Difficult philosphy I think for the female persuasion.

    That'd annoy me too, in fact it'd annoy most people. If the technology is there, I'll use it. And I have one so I can be contacted at all times.

    my theory is that not enough people would contact me to warrant getting one and i wouldn't contact them either, besides i can do it on msn for free........
