I have a family plan on my cell phones with 3 family members and I have always had the texting feature on my phone disabled. One of my family members uses his damn phone to do the same thing he can do on his PC that sitting right in front of him. Why he does this is beyond me. But it uses up all our data time so we get charged extra because he keeps using up all our data time on his phone when he could do the same thing on his PC sitting right in front of him. (Pisses me off to no end) So we changed our plan to unlimited everything. The text feature is still supposed to be turned off on my phone. But for some reason I started getting dozens of text a day. I don't like texting, I don't want texting, and I absolutely will no text and here is why. My phone makes a sound indicating you have a text. So I have to stop what I'm doing to look at my phone to see what or who is texting me. It starts off like this. I see you sell wood, how much? (end of text)because it's not a specific question. I text back. ( how much for what amount of wood) They text back. 1/4 cord. I text back. (a 1/4 cord of what kind of wood?) They text back. (What kind of wood do you have?) I text back a list of what I have. They text back. ( I'm looking for oak) I text back what kind of oak are you looking for)(They text back red oak) From then on it's one question after another, back and forth a dozen times with me having to stop and respond. This is about as non productive as it gets. Back and forth a dozen times when a simple phone call I could have answered all of there questions in less then a min. I keep calling my provider and demand them to take text off my phone and they say they will. Then more text start coming in. How is this productive if you have to stop working and go back and forth so many times when a simple one min phone cal would solve everything? I hate texting with a passion. Now I ether just don't respond or I'll smart off and tell the stop texting me and call me you freaking idiot. I'm about ready to take my phone up there and shove it up there azz and tell them now send me a text you freaking idiot. They had the text feature turned off on my phone until we changed the plan. My friends keep on me about not texting and how I am missing out on making sales by not texting. Texting just slows me down and pisses me off to no end. There supposed to have it turned off now, will see. End of rant!
