Is texting on your phone a convenient way of communicating?
Or is it just a polite way of saying "I don't really feel like picking up the phone to talk to you"?
Well, I'd say it's a convenient way of communicating, but if you ignore someone's phone call and then respond with a text, I think that would then be considered a somewhat polite way of saying "I don't really feel like picking up the phone to talk to you." But I have to say one of my biggest pet peeves is when someone texts back after you call, and respond back with "What's going on?" but you know they are not doing anything to make it so they can't pick up the phone.
I think that it is a fantastic way of communicating. I don't always have the time to make a phone call, and sometimes it is quicker to send or reply with a text.
I do believe txting on my BlackBerry is useful, no long distance fees. It is not as nice as hearing someones voice, but it is the second best thing.
I hardly make regular phone calls anymore. Texting is usually much easier.
i think its supose to be but honeslty its sometimes a pain more trouble than its worth
Yes! Especially if in a meeting. I didn't think I would like texting, but I do.
