I text when my wife or I am in a meeting and can't take a phone call. We still get questions answered without having to talk live line. Once we upgrade to mobile email then no more texting.

I also use it when I am in meetings to get a question answered, etc. It is also a little easier than leaving a voice mail and easier for the recipient. Instead of dialing voice mail, listening to message, the recipient can just read ...."what time are we meeting?" Much easier in my opinion.

I can see that, but how can you listen to the meeting if you are texting? I for one know if I were giving the presentation and folks had their heads down messing with their phones that in my mind would be considered rude?

But if you know where the keys are you dont have to look down to see what you are typing. Just read and respond without looking.

Its not gey, but it can be.

There are plenty of good usages for text messaging, if I know the person in question will not be able to answer the phone if I called, and will not be able to listen to a message where they are, then for sure I will text message them.

Good examples: Hey, I cannot pick you up as I am stuck in traffic - is a message worthwhile of texting.

Bad text messages... Hey, what is up?

the first conveys a message that needed to be read so that other arrangements could happen, the second is a frivalous pain in the rear that I would not want to recieve and would never send.

Now the first is a good example of a man's text message, women on the otherhand send things like the second, open ended pointless text messages that could have you keying in for the next hour to get anywhere.

You will notice women never text message "I am going to go to _______ tonight for dinner at 7, would you like to come" They text, hey what's up.

To which you reply, at the moment I am doing this.
they respond cool, want to have dinner...

to which you reply.

Men cleverly avoid this by sending "Beer? Palmers @ 8?" This conveys in a very ungey message where, when, and why. to which a simple yes or no will tell the other person exactly what is happening, no open endedness, or chatting.

Otherwise it gets gey... unless it leads to booty.

I tell you one thing. If someone starts texting while they are having a conversation with me, I wap the phone right out of their hands. People need to learn to pay attention. I ruined one phone doing this, and I never paid for it either. texting on them things during a conversation or meeting is just plain RUDE. have some respect people. I feel good about wrecking that phone too.

Anyone else see the irony in this? So your driving a car while screwing around with a little keyboard. No offense man, but really? I used to laugh when people would talk about banning cell phones in cars. However, the more time I spend on the road, I am ready to give it up (even though I feel like I can handle it), because I swear half the population becomes brain dead when they turn the key. If you really want to see how bad it is, take a motorcycle for a ride around the closest metro any evening around rush hour.

heck you should try texting while riding rush hour on your motorcycle, don't care who you are its pretty durned hard to clutch while holding the phone in your hand. :cool:

just kidding, I can text and drive, as well as other things.

I think it depends on your tech savvy, some people for instance cannot figure out how to type using the T9 txt entry style, where instead of pressing the same number 3 times or two times you just type the word out and it picks the nearest, then you cycle. I can do that sitting in traffic, and have done that while at stop lights on the bike many times.

Just depends, I do actually hate chatty messaging, but I am all over the meaningful message on it.

Heck I think most people on this board have a pretty good addiction to the messaging, isn't that all we are doing now?

Texting can be extremely important ... for example:

you're out skiing and not sure who's dock to meet at for happy hour ...
you're out hunting and see a massive buck heading towards your buddy ... you give hi a friendly head-up
you're on a business trip out drinking late and want to drunk dial some friends ... better to text them and not wake up their wife (or husband)

Texting and Walking: Dangerous Mix

You might call it an avocational hazard. A recent ITN News video in the U.K. shows that some London pedestrians have become so preoccupied with e-mailing and text messaging on their BlackBerrys and cell phones that they can't make it down a city block without crashing into lampposts or trash bins. One of the most hazardous streets for "walking while texting," according to the Monty Python–esque video clip, is East London's busy Brick Lane, lined with trendy boutiques and curry shops, where people have been filmed walking head down, ricocheting off various stationary sidewalk objects. The solution? Wrap Brick Lane's lampposts with fluffy, white rugby goalpost cushions.




The video hit the Internet in early March and was met with widespread media attention ("Britain's first safe text street has been created complete with padded lampposts to protect millions of mobile phone users from getting hurt in street accidents while walking and texting," the London Daily Mail proclaimed) along with much twittering in the blogosphere about the possible expansion of the Brick Lane pilot project. But it turned out that the lamppost-wrapping scheme was just a clever public-relations ploy mounted by 118118, a British directory assistance company, and Living Streets, a well-known charity dedicated to making cities more pedestrian-friendly. In tandem with the publicity stunt, Living Streets conducted an unscientific survey of 1,000 texting Brits and found that 1 in 10 — or, potentially, 6.5 million people nationwide — had suffered injuries while texting and walking.

In a world where billions of text messages move through the ether daily — Filipinos hold the national record, having sent a billion texts per day in 2007 — it's no surprise that news of texting-while-walking accidents piqued such global interest. Though the lamppost bumpers were removed from Brick Lane after only 24 hours, the debate over such "nanny government" maneuvers and the rampant dangers of walking while texting rages on. It's a debate that New Yorkers joined last year when State Senator Carl Kruger of Brooklyn introduced a bill in Albany to combat "iPod oblivion." His bill, which was prompted by the death of two constituents who were killed crossing the street while listening to their iPods, sought to ban pedestrians from using earphones in crosswalks in New York's large urban areas. The bill languished in committee last year, but the Senator has reintroduced it in 2008.

Intuitively, the perils of texting while walking make sense. But George Branyan, pedestrian coordinator for the District of Columbia Department of Transportation, says that in most pedestrian accidents, neither text messaging nor iPod oblivion are major factors. "I am not seeing it in the crash data," Branyan says.

Most pedestrian accidents, according to Branyan, happen because people jaywalk or drivers ignore existing traffic laws — which require, for example, yielding to pedestrians in the crosswalk, heeding the speed limit and stopping at red lights. A pedestrian dies every 110 minutes in the United States, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and there has been an increase in the last few years in pedestrian deaths in Washington and other urban areas across the country, prompting governments in the D.C. metro area to launch a new advertising campaign aimed at increasing pedestrian safety. It is both "edgy and blunt," Branyan says of the radio spots and posters, which depict a violent pedestrian-car collision. The most recent pedestrian fatality in Washington was typical, Branyan says: an elderly woman who was crossing the street with the right of way was hit last week by a driver turning right on a green light, knocking her almost 50 feet.

When the Department of Transportation and the D.C. police recently conducted a two-month street-safety campaign, undercover cops at crossings and pull-over police units issued 6,000 tickets — two-thirds to drivers and one-third to pedestrians for jaywalking, Branyan said. Though Washington police, along with other law enforcement agencies, agree that the increase in text messaging endangers both drivers and pedestrians (many states have outlawed text messaging while driving, and Maryland and Virginia are considering banning cyclists from text messaging on the go), Branyan thinks that creating new laws to ban texting, particularly in urban areas where police already face many law-enforcement challenges, is less useful than enforcing laws that are already on the books.

Traffic safety engineers are developing new technologies to alert drivers to areas where pedestrian traffic is heavy at certain times of the day. St. Petersburg, Fla., for example, has installed motion detectors at some crossings where there are no traffic signals; when a pedestrian approaches, a squawkbox urges him or her to push a button before crossing, triggering high-intensity flashing lights that drivers can see some distance from the intersection. City officials credit the system with boosting driver compliance with crosswalk laws from 8% to 84%. Washington plans to install similar bilingual devices at some of its high-risk intersections. In Boulder, Colo., the city has placed audible warning devices at busy crosswalks — when a pedestrian pushes the crosswalk button, lights flash and a "Use caution when crossing" message is played to remind the pedestrian to be careful.

Some communities, however, have opted for much lower-tech solutions. In County Mayo, Ireland, where rising pedestrian accidents have caused concern, elementary-school children persuaded the Irish Road Safety Authority last week to revive a popular 1970s ditty called the "Safe Cross Code," which exhorts six easy steps (including "look for a safe place" and "don't hurry") for safe street crossing. But even the classics can sometimes afford a little modernization: the Irish musician Brendan Grace has agreed to re-record the old-time jingle as a cell-phone ringtone, which can now be downloaded for a fee that goes toward supporting national traffic-safety programs.

It's ok to chew gum and walk but don't text and walk. :confused:

Talking and social skills will get you a lot farther in life than looking down at a phone and texting. Is it me or are all people with Iphones constantly on them?

Well it would be tough to know who has an iPhone if they aren't on them. And I would hope anyone dropping $400+ on a phone would get some good use.

Male to male texting is borderline gey.

Ok, so maybe this texting thing will catch on and become acceptable between heterosexual men but there are still some ares that are beyond borderline.

Once you start adding emoji's you have crossed a line for which there is no going back, my guess is you have already googled gender reassignment surgery and its only a matter of time.
