Lol how much superior does it need to be?

Here's the last four texts I sent to 4 different individuals:

Person 1: 12:30
Person 2: Cool
Person 3: See ya, bitch (accompanied by a picture of Dwight Howard)
Person 4: Tommorow afternoon. Maybe 7.

What can this super awesome non-American texting fad do for me that will enhance those messages? Lol

I guess if you use texting for casual conversation all day, every day. Or if you like sending emojis or drawing shit, it's cool. Most people I know don't do any of that though.

-Faster
-More reliable
-Easier to share anything. HQ pics, videos, files, music, audio messages, locations, etcetera
-read receipts
-More privacy
-Integrated video calling
-No crazy charges/poor functionality when traveling.
-Everything cross-platform

Just the reliability and the speed alone is enough reason to switch. There are zero downsides. Like I said, literally everywhere in the world people have stopped using texts because of how inferior and old-fashioned it is.

Stopped using texts? As in text messaging? Or like default phone texting apps?

Yes I'm talking about SMS, stock texting. Nobody does it, everybody uses Whatsapp or a similar service superior to normal texts.

I don't use sms nearly as much as hangouts (to text in a group with iphone users), kik or whatsapp but it's still nice to have because different people prefer different things. I like having options.

Wow, people still text in the year 2016? Why limit yourself?
Whatsapp, Google hangout, Wechat, and others can do so much more than just simple texting.

So whatsapp and other apps don't fall under 'texting'?

I have whatsapp, Skype and messenger on my phone and SMS seems to be the most used. The only time the others are used is when it's a group conversation. Like my basketball team telling the group what time our games or scrimmages are. Quick info is SMS.

you genuinely think that if I text a friend to see when they get off work I'm doing it to show them and others that I have the money to afford text messages?

I'd be surprised to learn that you can get a phone plan these days that doesn't have unlimited texts.

People defending texting are probably the same defending CMDA, even though they're hardly compatible. "**** your Apps and your GSM!"

It's true.

Although I use plain sms texting for majority of contacts.. Texting through WhatsApp or similar services is far superior. In terms of features they blow away regular texting. More responsive, end to end encryption, etc.

Maybe not you, but I said it in reply to that guy who said: "I thought instant messaging was only for kids who can't afford a texting plan". So take it in that context, I bet that's the way a lot of Americans think and that's why America is the last country in the world where everyone still uses regular texting.

It's just interesting to me that the US is the only country where old fashioned style texting is still common.
