Cellphones rot the brains! Neither, I don't plan on owning a cellphone anytime soon.

People who know me, know how to get in touch with me. Those that insist on calling me, don't.

I call and text. But my preference would be calling in most issues that would need more than one short text. I don't like it when you have to scroll to read the text or text back more than 2x on the same conversation. Besides, depending on the conversation, the tone can be so misjudged in written form. So, I text if it's a short thing say, "meet me at..." or "let's do coffee..." and call otherwise :)

I avoided getting texting for the longest time, because I didn't think I wanted or needed it, especially when it cost so much extra. I actually had that and 'net turned off on my earlier cell phone because of random texts from people I didn't know and my then 2-year-old son figuring out how to long on to the 'net lol. But we added it about a year ago, because it was a $ .01 more than we'd been paying. I use it quite often now. I really hate talking on the phone, except to a handful of people, so it is rather ironic I avoided it for so long.

I never have like talking on the phone, which is still true in my retirement years, so texting is for me.

Either. Talking is great but sometimes a quick text has to be enough.

I hate texting, because my fingers swell so bad so I have issues with the keys with the letters on them, and so it takes me 20 min to answer a question, or even to say Good Morning.

Really either depending on the situation.

I don't mind texting, but I like to actually hear people. There's a lot more to a conversation than just the words that are used.

Plus, nothing irritates me more than having a 2 minute phone conversation turned into a 30 minute text conversation.

Well 25 here and I despise telephones in general not saying it's a bad invention it's lifesaving for the most part. The problem is my arm and ear starts hurting when someone talks for a long time and I hate that for most ppl their cell pretty much controls their lives. If had to be chosen texting is the way to go but only to friends unfortunately my father and mother don't know how to text and only he carries his shitty Telus prepaid flip phone :( .....I think I will stick with my new. wonderful waterproof Samsung s5 bought outright at $800 and so worth it I only pay $20 a month and have a good amount of games and such plus I use it to mostly communicate with my sister and coworkers. I hope it lasts me 5 years abd stays in good condition :) it's no cheap phone man!

I hate texting! In fact, my phone does not allow it! I want the tone and emotion of a voice in order to understand the speaker.

It seems silly to take the time to spell out a word when you can just say it so much easier and quicker. Plus, speaking is more personal and is more like real communication between two people. I talk to people. It's the best way to be understood, among other things.

I have anxiety issues. Phone calls are one of the things that give me anxiety. I'm okay during a phone call, but making the phone call is a very anxious situation. That is why I prefer texting. At least with texting it's like a head start if the person decides to call me instead. I'm more prepared.

I like those verbal clues. It's so easy to misunderstand a text.

Being a mother with 4 kids, texting is a life saver. It's almost impossible to talk on the phone any more. The minute any one calls or I try to call some one - the kids start up. The baby cries, the 3 year old spills something, the older ones start fighting or arguing or complaining about being hungry....yes I LOVE TEXTING!! No one has to listen to me yelling at the kids in the background!

I sometimes let calls go unanswered and then just text people back instead lol. Terrible isnt it (at least i acknowledge and laugh at myself for it)

I do the same thing. I worked in a call center for five years and now I hate answering the phone.

Texting seems too impersonal to me. I prefer to hear the emotions and energy in a person 's voice. I feel you get the real essence of a person when you are actually carrying on a conversation and can hear each other speak.

I don't like cell phones they're annoying and allow people too much access to you. Not to mention it allows the government to track your every movement!

A combination of both talk and text. Depending on who I'm communicating with. Trying to text with my mom is just painful, but with friends, that's what I prefer.

I text because it is free whereas if I call, for most of my calls, it is long distance. Therefore I learned to text.

I prefer to talk on my cell phone vs. text but my teen and twenty-something children prefer text. Even if I leave a voice mail, they almost always text back.

Prefer to talk. Older model cell phone with prepaid service because it's less expensive and I don't have the need to use it often.

I chose either, depending on the behavior of my children at that time! LOL It's nice to be able to text and chat without being embarrassed because the kids are acting up in the next room.

I chose other, whereby I mean "either." Or it depends on the situation, what else is going on, who I'm conversing with, etc.

No texting for me unless is really necessary. If you want to have a conversation, let's have it the old fashion way. Texting is the reason, younger people are so unsocial

With texting, you are still being social, just in a written way rather than verbal.... I think the method of being social is changing, as it has before, and countless will do again.
