i know with me i use to love to call and i hated to text but in the past week or so i have really gotten into texting because to me i really like doing it, and i can't understand it but i would just as well text now than call and i like to do both, and yo usee people texting all of the time now and everywhere you go you can see people doing it, so i was just wondering about all of you, do you text more or would you rather call? i would like to thank you for taking the time out of your day to come by and read and review my discussion and hopefully answer, i hope that you all have had a great day so far and that you have a great and safe evening today, thanks again for taking the time to come by...

I text much more than talking. When I was a teenager, I would be on the phone for hours with my friends. Now I hate talking on the phone. On my breaks at work, I'm usually catching up with family or my sweetie, and I can keep my conversations private. It annoys me when someone conducts a personal phone call within earshot. I text to be considerate of others while staying in touch with my loved ones. I also like that I can have several conversations going at once.

I love texting! It's more convenient and you can do something else while you have a conversation, but when you're on the phone it is much harder to multitask. I love it so much I've developed this strange aversion to actually answering my phone. I'll even ignore a call and then text the person to see what they wanted, haha!

If i was given a choice, i would rather call than texting. It is because i think by call, you can convey the info that you want to give the receiver more accurately. Further more, it really save your time. By call, I usually only need 1 minute to tell somebody about something while messaging or texting is gonna to take more than 2-3 times than that. Nevertheless, if the info are really short, such as "i'll come" or "i'm busy right now", it is obvious that text or messaging are better.

when I am using my cell phone, I prefer to text before making the call. I don't really have the need to call someone that much on my cell. It's easier to send a text message to someone unless I really need to talk to the person. Besides that, it's more convenient and is cheaper to send text than to call someone to ask a simple question. My husband and I send text messages back and forth all day. No reason in particular but it's not easy to keep calling each other. So when it comes to my cell phone, I prefer text.

i am always intrested in calling rather than texting bcoz calling can share information or feeling which a text cannot say.i always text the messages that are funny and when it is free of cost.i am basically a hilarious guy and i love to call . i hope u all enjoyed todays evening .have a nice deep sleep with sweet dreams.

Before i like texting than calling. But later on, i feel tired of pressing the keys of my phone so better way is to do calling so you get response immediately but it's quite expensive than texting. happy posting.

I have never been a big a fan of texting and I think it is a complete waste of time because it takes a lot of time to text message someone when you could easily call them and say what you need to say or ask whatever you need to ask them,that and texting costs a lot of money especially since you have to pay extra to get unlimited texting,I only text from time to time,and I mainly only texted my fiance but now that she lives with me at my parents house I do not need to text her,and I text one of our friends every once in a while.

Hi friend,I feel that teenagers and youngsters love texting their friends,but adults hate to text as it takes time and we cant inform the message immediately and take decissions immediately.I feel really bored to sit and text but my cousins daughter a student loves to text her friends.She is kind of addicted to texting that even without seeing the letters she can close her eyes and text perfectly.This is the best example of "practice makes a man perfect".thanks for sharing.happy mylotting.

im more of calling than texting but as we all know texting is sometimes expensive most especially when most of your friends differ from the network provider you have but if you have the same there's no problem because you can just register to unlimited texting then you can enjoy texting day and night, but when suncellular has been discovered, the most cheapest network we have in philippines, they provide free texting and calling for 24 hrs for only 25 pesos and you also have free 10 text to other network, so when it was discovered i tried to switch with this network and now i am very satisfied with this network because i can now call my friends anytime i want without spending too much.... and im trying to convince my friend to switch to suncellular...

I used to text more but now i like talking. Before i start working, i tried to save every single cent in my credit, that's why SMS is my choice. When i start working and buy myself a reload card, i tend to call more as SMS is time consuming and sometimes we can't really express how we feel towards a topic. Talking helps us to gain instant reaction towards a topic.

Well i usually text all day long and keep the night to talk. so as to relate to my boyfriend about how was my day. It costs cheaper for me and it more convenient too as one is not also dispose to take calls at work or classes. So we have adopted this trend. What about you?

I used to do more calls than texting since my service provider gave me unlimited deal on calling between me and my wife that it costs nothing for the first 5 minutes and can make as many as we like. Now that I've got a new mobile phone with full QWERTY keyboard that I've done more texts than before because I can now type faster too. I only text when I'm busy at work since making calls are not allowed as it would disrupt other people at work and I set my mobile phone to silent mode so I can receive text message silently without any notification sound.

I like to telephone now.Because it could communicate messages quickly and clearly. But,when I were still a student,I liked to text with my friends ,especially with my boyfrind.Because after turning off light in our bedchamber,we couldn't talk loudly and had to keep quietly.So,we had to text by mobile-cell.And I thought that texting could express my feeling more correctly .So,I think different occasion ,we like to send our message with different ways.Are you agree my mind?

I've always been a heavy texter. I don't really make calls not unless it's really important. My keypads bear witness to my text habits. Lol. I've erased some areas on my N95. I guess I'll have to have this spray painted with a cool design once the numbers disappear. Lol.
