It took my only child moving away to college at age 18 for me to begin texting(lol).
It was either LEARN or never hear from her!!!!
Now I am in love with texting - so convenient and private. Not like the cell phone when no matter how hard you may try to keep your voice low, someone is sure to hear your conversation.
What are your thoughts on texting?
Now on the flip side of things, I am so over everyone including the city bus driver "texting" instead of paying attention to their driving. Only God has kept me safe on my bus rides as I can tell you some "near" misses. Sorry, but there needs to be some tougher measures for "texting" drivers.
And get this, it is against the city bus company rules to be texting, but does that stop some rebel bus drivers...
I just started texting also. It took my adult kids to get me on board. Texting works for me when I am busy. I have see many people texting or using a hand held cell phone when driving. In most states it is against the law. However,it doesn't stop people. Embroidery Fashions Boutique
I have a smart phone. In August my 9 year old left my 4G iPhone in Whole Foods (she was managing the grocery list on it). I really did mourn the loss of that phone. Even though I know that sometimes you have to lose things to make room for better things and better times, I could not properly communicate with anyone via text after that.
Just got the new 4GS & guess what? I can tell the phone what to text. Hands free texting while I drive! Love it!
That said, I still only manage to do it in a traffic jam or at a stop light. There is something to be said about trying to concentrate on driving and dictating a message at the same time.
That is AWESOME Yvonne, I did not realize they had that technology, but again, keep in mind that at age 53 I am still attached to my prepaid AT&T Go Phone(lol).
Now my boyfriend finally kicked his prepaid TracFone to the curb and now has some T-Mobile Smartphone - there are so many versions, but either way, he had to study the manual that came with it - Yikes!!!
But he loves it and I am glad he went ahead and got it as our finances finally start to improve. Thank you Jesus

I love texting. I prefer it to all other forms of communication. I love how I don't have to make up small talk, or dawdle on the phone while trying to figure out how to say goodbye. I love the simplicity, ease and speed of texting.
It took getting a smart phone to enjoy texting, I will caveat.
