just did the math real quick... factoring in time to sleep, 5000 a month would mean you Send an adverage of nearly 10 text every hour of every day... you need to cut back some man

then there is the received messages

10/hr isn't that bad if you think about it.

if you went on a texting frenzy you could send one every minute at least.

5000 a month is really not a huge task...

I send probably close to 2,000-2,500 - really depends on the time of year. Warmer months and summer there is more going on, thus more texting. Try telling your friends where to meet you VERBALLY in a loud bar or club. Or when you're a passenger in a car and don't want people overhearing your conversation. Texts are VERY helpful in some situations. Others verbal communication is better.

Either way...I have a BlackBerry 8100 (Pearl), and it has it'* own semi full keyboard / predictive text that works flawlessly. I can type about as fast as I can on a regular keyboard. I love my BB...the ultimate in connectivity.

I was just thinking I could text someone but no one I would would even know how to text me back. And right now I couldn't even tell you if my phone is or isn't dead.

And who pays $.25/min??? I pay about $.16/min and thats a Tracfone.
