Yet another person who watches Ace of Cakes and thinks, wow! that must cost a LOT of money, like, a HUNDRED dollars!
My DH texts occasionally using his work Blackberry, but we have it turned off on our personal phones. I refuse
to text. If you need to talk to me, call me! When he does text, it takes him forever, as he uses proper English. He makes his friends use it, too. If one of them texts something that's full of abbreviations, he'll just text back "What?" or "Dude, I think a teenager got ahold of your phone again."
