    I love texting. The only people I actually speak to on the phone are my parents who still have a landline. :confused:

    We text a little, but not nearly the amount of young folks today. I've seen some pretty fast texters.

    Dunno. It’s somewhat of a paradox to me.
    People texting kind of means to me that a person really doesn’t wish to hear someone else’s voice. Could be the reason the other person texts back is that they don’t wish to hear someone’s voice either.
    But yet, those same somebodies will complain when they get a computer on the phone.

    I whatsapp, mostly, from my computer... occasionally text from my phone, but the buttons are too small for me so I'm a little slow at it.

    My DD is such a an adept texter she can actually text while not looking at the phone, and while holding a conversation with someone else...and there won't be a single mistake

    I don't like texting. Usually if I get a text from a family member I'll text back CALL ME.

    Guys do you sympathise? My pet hate with texting is having such large fingers. Oh the annoyance when I constantly press the wrong key.
