    I have a really old phone with multi-press typing. For that reason, I've always found it really hard to type and so I've always been really slow. I therefore don't text anyone often and if I need to talk to them I will call them or use skype or steam. My friends don't text each other either even though they have contract smartphones. We just talk to each other directly or phone each other. It's so much easier.

    I have 5 people that I regularly text and use up my texting credit on! For us, when we start a conversation, we forget about texting limits and can talk for ages.

    Really interesting question, I kind of have to talk to some people less to talk to some people more. Like I'll text someone back and forth 24/7 for months, and if I meet someone new who I want to text I need to downgrade and only text the other person sporadically throughout the day..

    Kind of taking text to include using apps? I mean come on, who SMS's anymore.

    I don't text many people, but when I had close friends I did text A LOT :yep:

    Now I only really text my dad, brothers or partner. But I use whatsapp a lot more now as I have friends/relatives in other countries and texting them costs too much.

    People barely ever seem to text each other nowadays. I only really text people if I can't get hold of them online at all or if I'm meeting up them soon/trying to find where they are on a night out :yep:

    I don't really text my friends, unless it's a joke or something relevant.

    Well, I don't have (m)any friends who use Whatsapp, so what's the point of installing it on my phone? I may as well just text them.

    What's the problem with texting?

    The only person I text on a regular basis is my boyfriend.
    He doesn't have a smartphone and we both have unlimited messages so I've never used an app instead.

    I have two friends that I feel I can text whenever. With other people I find sustained conversation a tad awkward as I often can't be bothered and I think they can tell.

    I text my boyfriend and best friend every day without fail. I can talk to them both about pretty much everything over text. The other people on my contacts are either family or people from college/my old school. I sometimes text people from college about generally college type things - never really a general chat. I sometimes Facebook message other people as well, but I'm not the type of person who texts more than they talk in real life if that makes sense.
