I rarely send a text, I find it hard work to reply to the ones I do receive. I phone or email if I want a record of the message. Texting is awkward on a small keyboard, and life is too short to keep turning off the bloody predictive text feature (it seems to reset itself for some reason). I realise that my advanced age puts me into the "old fart" category and that I will never embrace texting, it is probably because I don't feel the need to constantly send trivial messages written in a sort of mangled patois to assorted friends , family and casual acquaintances every few minutes.
However texting seems to be popular amongst the younger people, so much so that it will soon be more popular than actually talking.
