    I do so much, girls take like a day to text back and you get all geeky like "omg why hasnt she texted back.. maybe she doesnt like me", and get a magnifying glass and analyse everything she says

    and then you have "text could not be sent" or something
    and you only get half of it

    or you don't know if they get it and if it has gotten through.

    talking on the phone or in real life is 3000% times better, anyone agree?

    ffs--server messed up and my poll has disappeared? anyone know how to make a poll?

    Texts are handy for me because I'm on an expensive tariff at the moment and I'm skint as I've been unemployed for over a year now for various reasons. So I use O2 for free SMS on their website. But I do hear you about its current state of affairs. It's not always convenient to phone from my house phone, because although I can use it, I don't want people knowing and using the home number as I have my own etc.

    My text messages tend to turn into mini-essays. Sort of defeats the object.

    I prefer texting to phoning, especially with close friends, I spent nearly 4 hours on the phone to my girlfriend a few nights back...she was in Berlin. Don't ask me how much it cost. :eek:

    what are the best phones for texting by the way? im considering getting a new contract phone, but ot sure whether to go for the newer uglier nokias (RIP 7250i ) because they are so damn easy to use, or whether to go for the swish samsung one...ive got a crappy samsung at the mo and it's a bugger to text on. and seeingas my contract will give me 500 free texts, thats what i'll be doing rather than phoning people
