  • i like texting more than talking usually because someone can text me and i can get back to them whenever. it's also better for if someone is having a meltdown.... it would be impossable to talk on the phone to them over that noise. and it's also better for when i'm trying to put the baby to sleep.

  • I don't know, I would rather text someone. I hate talking on the phone, always if I have the option to text, I will.

  • I don;t text. only to answer the youth pastor when he texts about if the boys are coming to church.
    once in a blue moon I'll text a friend of mine that moved out of state- just to say HI, to surprise her- (since I almost never text... and her time zone is 3 hours off-- it makes her smile)

  • I agree. I'm not into the whole texting thing, not that I have a cell phone to begin with. I would rather call people.
