I get aggravated when.....

I'm trying to text someone and, since the phone they sent me (even though it is the same phone it is the old version of it, pre software OS change) doesn't have the dictionary feature, I have to write out "pimp" because T9 doesn't have it.

I mean, every time I want to tell one of my friends what a pimp she is I have to hit 74* then <- and -> 67*****

so annoying.

Oh, and the punctuation set up is different so when I try to send ? I've been sending ).

I know jessicakmalfoy lives on texting as much as I do, but does anyone else get this?

Oh dude.
Totally know what you mean.
I have to add in friends names a lot, and then I have to add in words and other such 'words' like psha!-- and it is so not cool.
Predictive text MY ASS.

texting jessicakmalfoy tonight we discovered that t9 has "fanfic".

You know, it bothers me that it has somethings that are not actually words and then words that are words it ignores. Like when I was trying to tell my friend Maya what a bastard Erik is. Nope, t9 does not have "bastard"

:/

Oh yes, and the words that they come up with, it is like "that is a word?"

My phone recently spazzed out and I didn't have texting for almost three weeks. I resorted to taking pics of things and writing notes and taking pics of that and sending them to people. My roomie asked me about us going somewhere after work once and I sent her a pic of me giving a thumbs up.

It is addicting. Never start.

I communicate by text messages ever since I and about 95% of my friends got 1000 free messages per month. I don't use T9 though, so I can't share your pain. I never use the word pimp anyway :P 'round here, you'd have to be an mtv crazed 15-year old to get away with saying pimp (yes, German kids integrate the word pimp into thir sentences. and I really mean pimp, not a translation)

shouldn't your phone store your regularly spelled words for T9 after the 1st time you spell it?????
