Amount of SMS messages you use monthly?
I hear a lot of people complain about the keyboard on the iPhone. I have learned to type faster on the iPhone than on any physical keyboard I've ever used. So we want to know, just exactly how many SMS messages you go thru a month. It can include incoming and outgoing...
I am a heavy texter and use anywhere from 3000-6000 a month on average. And the most I've used was 10,000... yes that is not a typo.
How about you?

I considered myself a heavy texter at 1200 but you have more than doubled that. Wow. I have also gotten used to the keyboard and can type just as fast if not faster than on a physical keyboard. It took me about a month and a half to learn but it's all smooth now

I text way more (300 so far this month) than I ever have. I find it very easy on the iPhone (although my last phone was a regular flip phone and not nearly as easy). I even prefer the portrait keyboard to the landscape version. In the landscape version, the keys are too far from each other and I find I make more mistakes.

Zero. That's why I have a "phone"... so I don't have to type like my ancestors did in the 1860s.
For emailing, I type a lot faster and more accurately in portrait mode than in landscape. Landscape requires too much thumb movement, and the rows are too close together. I don't know why people want it.

So let me see if I've got this straight...
The telephone was invented because speaking made communicating faster and easier. Then texting came along because typing made communicating faster and easier. Now people want Voice SMS and voice IMs because speaking makes communicating faster and easier.
Okay, I think I got it now.
