I won't reply and then delete the message. But, well, it's really up to the cellphone owner if he/ she wants to reply.

Hi there Acey 76! Well, if that happened about a decade ago, I would reply with a yes and ask the person to tell me more about his or herself. I actually met some textmates and chatmates back then but always with my friends. Anyway, if that happened now, I will just ignore it and won't waste my time on such things.

I usually don't reply to this kind of text messages. But if the owner of that number keeps on sending me this message I'll have to tell him/her to leave me alone because I'm not interested.

Nothing. I would completely ignore it and delete the number immediately. I am such a frugal person and I don't want to waste a cent to a person who doesn't have anything better to do. I don't fall for this type of persons. I am just being safe. Evil persons are lurking around just waiting for an opportunity to get to their next victim.

Hi. acey76. I would not reply back at all. If they are persistent, I will send them a message stating that I have forwarded their text message to the police. Hopefully by then, they will stop sending me crazy text messages.

Hiya acey, Not answer this kind of message would be my first instinct and not even the second time around would I answer it either. Not knowing the Person first is very daunting to say the least. Lot´s of People hide behind this kind of thing with second intentions that are not usually very good. Not saying that everyone is like this but usually they are. We have to protect ourselves and Children of all ages because they are very vulnerable to this kind of thing. Their instinct is to trust first ask questions later. Later could be too late for more than one. I hate to sound like a bucket of cold water, but cold water makes one wake up to reality. It would be nice if the People all People were nice with no bad intentions. Caution is the word here. If you ever try to ask someone the way when you stop your Car beside them watch how most will back away at first until they feel more sure about you it´s only natural to do this. Take care now.

Well..... Who are you? Just meet me once as it's hard to accept a request from text message.

I would just ignore it and if they kept sending me texts I would text back and say "Please stop texting me." and if they didn't then I would call the cellphone company and see if they couldn't block the number, though I believe there is usually a fee attached to that.

i prefer to ignore and i won't reply to that person. and if they send me message again,then i'll ask what is their problem? or where did they get my no.? but in any other means,i just don't reply unless i know the person already. it's hard to know if the person is just someone you know or someone stalking at you and have bad intentions in return. i remember,before when i was bored and i was young back then. i just invent any number and send quotations or like wrong sent ones. and think if there someone who'll respond on me. well,just as i thought there's none. so i guess,it's really hard for people to respond on someone they didn't knew to be safe....

i won't reply to it.. cause usually i know who is it texting me.. it's just schoolmates that wants to be friends with me,.. why they would just text me, it would be better if they would talk to me in person..

I won't reply at all. I guess I'm finally over that phase where I really don't bother with textmates, and people texting and sometimes calling to ask if we can be friends.

If I receive a SMS from an unknown person, I won't reply to it at all. Since today there are quite a lot of cheaters. I don't want myself to get troubles. I love China
