    How often do you use your phone to text? Do you text every day or every second day? How many texts do you send in a day?

    Because of the availability of whatsapp app,I have reduced my rate of texting. Before now it was daily now I text only when the person is not on Whatsapp.And that can be between 2-3 times in a week.

    Texting is already a part of my daily routine. It's one way of communication. Though there have been a lot of apps introduced to us for messaging, I still prefer the normal texting with no use of data/wifi.

    Texting is part of my daily activity mostly because of my job as a project coordinator, I have to send text messages to my colleagues in the field to relay instructions at the same time to check if they executed their respective task properly. Other than sending text messages to my colleagues i also send text messages to my family when i'm at work. I don't really depend much on wifi or data connection because it drains phone battery much faster when you're using wifi or data so that's why most of the time texting is my way to communicate with them.

    Well I guess almost every hour of everyday because texting is my primary source of communicating to others if that others are far away from me.

    I'm practically a text person. It may be in the form of chat on whatsspp messenger, Facebook messager, Baddo messenger etc. I hardly make calls, I see calls as a medium of contact when you are in an emergency situation. I feel more connected with messages than calls.

    If by texting, you meant texting over a cellular network, I rarely text. If by texting you meant texting via applications like WhatsApp or Messenger, I text a lot. Almost every hour, I send or receive a text. It makes life easy. I prefer calls only from close relatives, family members, and my girlfriend! For the rest, I can be contacted by text. This way I can reply at my ease, when I am free from work and not busy.

    Hey Anachiwo, may I weigh in on the fact that sometimes you can put your words better on text than on call!

    I completely agree with you on this, text helps you express your thoughts without feeling shy or intimidated when the person you are communicating with is physically present. But once it's through text messages, you get to hide under the medium without seeing anyone's face and have your mind said out well.

    I send text messages only for a pupose of replying or/and I really need something to tell to my receipient. I don't usually start the topic whenever I have a textmate. There aren't much people who texted me therefore I seldom sending texts.

    I text at least a couple times a week on my phone, I usually communicate through phone call or computer most of the time.

    I text every time I have load and that is probably twice a week. I'm not that rich so I don't really have the money to buy load and also the internet has a wide range of communication already so I mostly use the internet to communicate.

    I text everyday. In our country call is not a thing unless if it is for emergency cases. I prefer texting because I want to avoid disturbing the other person. I don't know if he or she is busy but to be safe I will text him or her than calling him.

    I only text when there is something important I want to say using sms. Otherwise I would only be using my smart phone for browsing, calling and watching video clips. I'm not really big on texting.

    I rarely text these days not with the different avenue that are available to us and more quicker means than text messages that the reply doesn't come immediately most times. So I can text at most twice a day or in three days depending on the quantity of what I need to write about or else it my usual social media routes of engaging people.

    I often text everyday since I need communication for my love one. We use to talk in phone or text when we are not together. That's the only communication we have when we are not together. I always use my phone for texting her and for emergency purposes.

    I text like if it is necessary to sum it all maybe twice a month or never? because messenger app is present now in our lives. Using internet connection just simply log in and there you go you can chat him or her easily. You will be notified if they seen it. Also you don't need to buy load just to reply.

    I have a mobile phone but I don't text regularly or even in a week, because I don't have any reasons to text someone. I use my phone as a clock and I only text when there is an emergency or important matter. My daily schedule is fix, from home to work and vise versa so when there is overtime or changes in my schedule that's the time I have to text my wife at home.

    In a day's time I probably text at least 15 times, and most of these texts are coming from my wife, students, and co-workers. I subscribe for a weekly text plan , just for text, and I spent just a dollar for a 7 day texting spree. I can call if I have some free credits coming from my provider but I don't usually call. I let others call me and I respond. Texting is fast enough for me at least comparing it to those days when we need to go to a phone booth and call. Now, just text and in seconds your messages can be received.

    Yes, I text everyday because I have a girlfriend. We make sure that we are in touch with one another. In college days, we are always together so we are used to see each other everyday. After college, we have our own destiny, our own work, so we make sure we are always updated to each other. We don't see each other everyday but we are always texting one another and that would be crucial. I think if there are no texts or calls, I don't know if we are who we are now.
