This is the 2nd time I've met someone, and with wireless text messaging they are like

"Well, I have it, but I don't know how to use it..."

I explain to them that with Rogers (what I'm on), it's your_num@pcs.rogers.com

So wut is it with Bell?
and Fido?
others?

You shouldn't call your friends dumb since you don't know that text messaging does not require an email address.

I had it for 6 months and never learned. And cancelled it.

It's one of those extra things that I don't want to be bogged down with. It was bad enough that I got a phone.
But with faxing, emailing, messaging, ICQing, MSNing, cell phone, landline, workline, work messaging, network email, school email, school registry systems etc etc etc... it's just too much.

Communication overload.

What?????????

This thread makes me laugh. The older phones had text messaging capabilities on the web. My old Kyocera phone was similar, where I had to log on to send, but I could receive no problem without having to go online. The newer phones have a messages feature where you can text message without having to pay ridiculous amounts of money on browsing their web.

I think what adorablehomeboy is trying to ask is who has an email address with their wireless service?... meaning who can send text messages from a computer? Fuck I can't explain this. I quit.

ok. BIG pet peeve: people who text constantly even when they are hanging out with real live people.

sitting in a movie theatre? texting.
eating at a restaurant? texting.
fucking you up the ass? texting.

(alright, maybe not that last one, but SERIOUSLY. ugh. so rude.)

Text messages are good because you can get to the fucking point with a simple message.

It's also fun for sending dirty messages to girls. ;)

See!!!

I am at a higher level of dumb, did I forget to explain that Balzz? Whoops, see, I am dumb.

But if you are at a computer, and want to email someone some text, you gotta know the email address to their phone.

Unless they have yours and you reply to them, but putting in the reply number that appears as an addy doesn't work.

Frig, maybe I should bump this monday morning for all the 'smart' daytime office people to see.

Dumb afternoon Tribers :p

Why aren't you getting ready for System tonight anyways?????

i hate people who dont know how to use text messging

It is the best thing for when you are out or in the night club and lost.
also its cheaper and easier then checking voice mail and if you smart about it you dont need call display as the number is already displayed with your text message.

If you lose everyone you cant ring them up but you can send a text in 2 seconds and they can tell you where you are.

Same thing if you want to say something but its too loud then send a text message your sorted.

Also people who dont know how to use predictive text functions make me mental as well. Its easy just spell the word like you would think it should be spelt and it does it for you.

Hence predictive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We need to catch up on this field here guyz honestly at least jebec and q-tip seem to be profecient users

The last time I lost my friends at a party was at Freakin 98 at the CNE, 100,000 square feet and 15,000 people.

I can't imagine losing them in Kool Haus!


I think you guys are just justifying the rampant use of cell phones here!

:p

Well... as a self-proclaimed text-junkie i admit that i often go a little overboard (~300/month).
That being said, my boss travels a lot and it's MUCH cheaper to send text msgs overseas than just dialing mobile-mobile.

mad props to my homegirl Smiley Jo

How does an "Alias" work?

An alias is like a nickname that can be used instead of your phone number in your Bell Mobility e-mail address.

For example, if you choose "tiger" as your alias, your address becomes tiger@txt.bellmobility.ca.

Does my Alias replace my Bell Mobility e-mail address?

A. No. You have the option of using either your digital PCS phone number@txt.bellmobility.ca or your alias@txt.bellmobility.ca as your e-mail address for messages sent to your PCS phone.

Like, oh my god. Maybe if your friends weren't busy text-messaging each other or other people, they would notice that they wandered off without you to do coke.

Like, oh my god.

DRUNK AND BELIGERENT!
