In a relationship with a cellphone....Page 4 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
If a cell phone screen was used as a TV screen and people were constantly catching up on their favorite TV shows while on a date or any other social setting and ignoring people, would people find that acceptable? If not, what difference does it make what the distraction is?

I find texting downright offensive. If the person has no time to call or, the subject of the text doesn't deserve a call then, it doesn't deserve my time to read it. I ignore text messages, just as if they had not happened.

Those that tell me, "hey, I sent you a text saying blah blah blah", I inform them of the above and let them know that if they want my attention, they can send an email or call, otherwise, they are wasting their time. Since people know that's how I deal with it, I only receive texts from a few clueless who I proceed to clue in. I haven't gotten a text message in months. If my date doesn't get the point the first time, there simply won't be a second time even if she is hotter than napalm.

I think texting should be against the law across the board. Many car accidents where people died were a result of an idiot texting while driving. An enormous amount of productivity is lost due to texting. Ridiculous errors are made as a result of texting. Ideally, the feature should be removed altogether from cell phones.

Did I mention I don't care for texting ?

Anytime (which is always) I walk into a bar, club, or any other "social gathering", and see people fiddling with their phones, I want to punch them all right in the face.

Then you have the ones who make 15 trips outside of the building so they can hear their phone conversations. My God, these are very important, in demand people, I tell you.

Last but not least, are the dipshits who play with the camera all night taking pictures. This, of course, is to show everyone evidence of their wild and crazy good time they had, which consisted of nothing more than taking pictures to make it look like they had a wild and crazy time.

Brilliant.

Personally, if I get a message like that from someone here, or in my email, I ignore it. (No reply) If they cannot form a sentence that makes sense, and are too lazy to communicate, I don't wish to have a relationship with them....it's that simple.

I had texting blocked on my phone. If you text me it sends back a message that texts are blocked to this phone. I think it will be proved that chronic texting is a serious psychological disorder along with addiction to the POF forums :)

There was a very funny utube of a pedestrian obliviously texting while walking...and she walked right into a fountain. But in seriousness, the phenomena of addictive texting is becoming a health issue. There have been laws passed regarding texting while driving......but it would astound you to know the number of visits to emergency dept caused by pedestrians wandering into traffic while texting.....people oblivious to their "real time" surroundings.
Lost in cyberspace be all their common sense.
Food for thought

They passed a law here where you need to have a blue tooth to drive, you cant text or talk on a cellphone or you get fined. They're thinking of outlawing it alltogether, because people still arent respecting it, and STILL crashing because they are paying more attention to their phone conversation than traffic.

I don't like cellphones much, and texting is only a barely adequate tool for communication. I do text, but not to hold endless conversations. It's a tool, that's all. I, like the OP, get really put off by idiotic spelling, and particularly when it spreads to more decent modes of communication, like emailing or - when I was a university lecturer - essays. God help us.

I was in a training course at work all day today. A bunch of of us went to a training room and the computers had modules of various topics loaded on them that we had to read and learn and there was an on-line quiz at the end of each module. The guy who sat next to me seemed to spend 75% of the time messing around with his cell phone. It was constant check for messages, send a text message, check, send, check send. Then once in a blue moon he would look at the modules, but after a while, the cell phone became priority #1 again.

I have just a regular phone, and I am not very attached to it at all. I text more than I talk, mostly because I don't really like to talk on the phone. The thing that kinda gets me on here are guys who want my phone number right after the very first email, which is usually "Hello, here's my number, call me" I'm not giving my number out that quickly, perhaps I'm old fashioned, but that's just too soon for me. I also run into people who send very brief emails too, using text speak too. UR hot etc. While I do appreciate the compliment, even when it is phrased like that, I would prefer the use of full words and maybe even punctuation too.

Face it.... most of you are addicted to your cell phones. Get help. You should be able to leave it home for 6 months no problem. If not? Addict!


Not sure what I could do without for 6 months...Sex, masturbation, porn, etc...I'm an addict.

when it crashes or BSODs, will it take the user's brain down with it?


Absolutely!... The whole thing is a plot by those of us who don't like texters. It is a device to permanently crash the brain of texters. Collect their bodies, place them into refrigerated pods and, dole out the organs as needed to those who have never texted. :-)

Edit: since the brain wasn't exactly "prime material", it was deemed disposable.

The only reason I even have a cell phone is for emergencies or to send a quick text that I'm on the way. I've nearly been hit crossing the street because someone was on a cell and not paying attention, I could live without one very easily, but I have several friends who carry their cellphones around everywhere and rarely put it down. The funniest thing I've seen is a guy walking into a parking meter while texting, shook it off then went back to his texting.
I was in a coffee shop and there are these two girls, I'm guessing friends, but they actually weren't talking or even looking at each other, they both had their cellphones texting away, you wonder how this will effect society in the future and if we will lose the ablility to socialize with others.
