Who uses text messages anyway? Whatsapp, BBM, MSN, Gchat... so many free options (considering you're part of a wireless plan). Still works out much cheaper for me than texting.

I still have a friend that doesn't have text messaging on his phone. His dumb phone at that.

Yes he does get ridiculed.

I still use text messages. I don't think I should have to make a screen name or use an app just to send out a text. Give me a number, send a text, that's it. I have unlimited text too. So it would be pointless.
Never even heard anyone say who uses text lol. I think almost everyone still does.

Actually, if you read the article Spunkee - the whole system is seemless and automatic. So if you have iOS5 and the person you're sending it to does as well, then it's sent as an iMessage. Simple.

And, noted nopunctuation.

Thank you for some sanity. Texting is like using a payphone in my opinion.
