    I use the mail2web push email setup for texting, and it takes about 8 minutes to send and recieve a text. Regular phones are likes a minute or 2 not even... I tried Beejive and it was about 6 minutes and its still slow and some phones dont work with it. So is there a faster way to text?

    Use a normal cell phone?


    ...or just call the person. Jeez no one calls each other these days its always text me, message me, IM me, email me. Crikey.

    No but seriously that's prolly as fast as you're gonna get. "EL-Oh-EL" "colon parentheses"

    It's not slow to type with, I can type A LOT faster than I can with any other phone I've tried. Practice makes perfect. Also, I tend to use the portrait view aswell (BeeJiveIm ETC.) so it would probably quicker with landscape.

    [EDIT] I realised we may not be talking about typing speeds?

    +1. I'm a caller, and to get information to my friends, the quickest way for me is to call.

    I use Mail2Web for texting, and it is VERY fast.

    8 minutes? What are you typing a story?


    I can text one friend, and receive his answer in the same minute.
