I’m interested to know what my readers are using now.  Please comment and share  your texting tool of choice.  Is text messaging your preferred method of communication?  Are you one of those people who can text a mile a minute, or is your phone too awkward to use for texting?  I know my readers who are blind aren’t driving while texting, so I need not be concerned there.  Can you tap and text?

 

I use a Moto Q with Mobile Speak.  I like my phone because it has a spectacular tactile qwerty keyboard, and Mobile Speak is sufficient for my pitiful texting purposes.  What are you using?

    I use an LG EnV, the first version. I can’t edit my texts, but I sure can send them! I probably get 2 phone calls a month, whereas I get 2 texts every 15 minutes. It’s definitely the communications wave of the 21st Century.

  2. I use an Australian SMS-to-email-to-SMS gateway (http://messagenet.com.au/ for texting, then I can receive text as emails and send text as emails. It can be configured so text replies go to my mobile number or to my email but I prefer email. Then I can use all the regular accessibility features on my computer when I send and receive texts – perfect!
