    My kids are 30 & 27.
    Honestly, if I didn't text I would have missed a lot of communicating with them over the last few years.

    Problem I have is my phone has a dial on it!!!

    and there was debate and resistance in some states on whether it should be illegal to text and DRIVE!

    Hey if Lanse Brown can learn to text ( he was told by Rorem to learn how )



    I prefer to text that way people can call me back OR NOT without having to make excuses and hanging up...just wish they would make it very illegal to text and drive ( 250 fine in Calif)

    I don't like to text. I have to do it for work sometimes, but that's about it. Most times I can call you just as easy as text something to you. I just don't understand the fascination with it.

    its very easy to put out the same message to many users and only have to do it once...for me its the best way to communicate at a FT or in training, and especially if my brother is with a patient, allows him to call back at HIS convienence
