i know that in todays world we can all say that almost everyday we see someone either talking on the cell phone or texting, thats just a normal part of life now as we can all pretty much agree to honestly, and for the most part i just talk on the phone because i don't have unlimited texting so it cost me about fifteen cents per text messages and i hate to text anyways it just takes longer in my opinion, so i was just wondering about all of you, what do you do more, do you text message or do you call people more? thank you for taking the time out of your day to come and read my discussion and i hope that you all will have an answer and i also hope that you all have a great evening, night and the rest of your weekend is great! thanks!

When I had my cell phone i would text more because i preferred it to talking. I knew it would take longer to text and would cost more money to get my message to people, but I looked forward to looking at my phone and seeing "1 new text".

i prefer to talk more as it is more direct and personal rather than texting... you also get the response straight away instead of having to wait for the other party to text you back... it is much more convenient and faster... so i prefer talking than texting definitely... take care and have a nice day...

i have unlimited texts so it works for me to always you it, plus i can text really quickly so sometimes if actually quicker to text someone that ring them and wait for them to pick up. also i can multi task if i text, for instance i could send a txt to a mate and write this comment while i'm waiting for the reply.

Texting is too much more trouble than talking. You dial and talk. Thats easy and natural. With texting you have to compose, think, send and wait for a reply. Talking is better.

I have unlimited texts, so I definitely text more than I talk on the phone. Since I don't usually like to use my daytime minutes unless I have to, it is easier for me to text. Especially since I have classes in the daytime, I don't really have time to be on the phone. I shouldn't be texting in class either, but if I get bored, then I will. That way I can communicate with the people I need to be in touch with without actually having to talk on the phone. It may sound weird, but there are some people that I have a "text" relationship with and other people that are actually important enough for us to have a real conversation on the phone.

I have three phones.Two are lines with different networks and one is prepaid.Two are intended for personal use so I do not give that number to everybody.The other is for public use. When the person matters to me, I tend to call more no matter how long the conversation takes. When the texter is just a persistent "got nothing to do" person, I just text so as not to appear rude (when I'm in the mood).When the texter is someone I do not want to converse with, I do not bother replying. :)

Dear friend, I would talk more than texting through phone. I do talk as the matter if urgent and more texting is to be done. Small and not urgent matters I would text a message. Mostly I text for wishing others like happy birthday, happy journey, happy voyage etc.

Hi there! I'm more of a texter. Eversince I had a cellphone I seldom use it for calling. For me when I call I can't do anything except talk on the cellphone and it's tiring holding the cellphone near our ear. Yes, there are headsets available and sometimes I use one but still my mind is pre-occupied by the ongoing conservation. Not like when I'm just texting. I can put my cellphone down and do other things while waiting for the reply. Ciao!

I really like texting more than I do talking. Sometimes the line gets choppy when I'm on the phone. I also like the fact that I can easily edit the text messages I send and send them whenever I want to. If someone calls, I need to answer it on the spot regardless of what I'm doing. A text message can reach me anytime no matter what I'm doing.

I text more. My phone seldom rings and I seldom call others too unless there is a need for a length discussion or unless things are too complicated to be conveyed via emails or text messages. I only text occasionally too... is there so much things to communicate?

on my cell phone i actually do quite a bit of both. But I usually end up texting more when i know that it is not time yet for my minutes to be free. So i would have to go with texting. Especially during the daytime.
