    Yes. I would consider some of these great droid phones, but with all of my friends with iPhones....it would suck not to be able to have group threads that iMessage introduced.

    I suppose iMessage is more favorable to the younger crowd. I mean, people from my generation still prefer picking up the phone and talking. Besides, it's not like back in the day when there weren't any unlimited texting plans and you were charged per SMS message. *To me*, it's just an Apple SMS/mms feature and nothing more. I do, however, like how it identifies a contact that uses iOS, but other than that, it is just a texting feature.

    The best part about iMessage is the ability to send full resolution photos. If you send photos via MMS, they are paired down to 640x480.

    I think it's great for people in different countries to save money instead of using text. It works great for me because my girlfriend works in a hospital with zero cell signal but we still can iMessage.

    I'm 47, and love the fact that I can have multiple buddies on a thread...it wouldn't happen on a phone call. Best uses:
    1)getting happy hour settled
    2)busting balls as a group

    I didn't recall this....good point. If the new cam is 12mgs, that is even bigger

    Of course, there are always exceptions. I was merely speaking in general terms & from my perspective. I'm 49, by the way.

    (laughing)...I hear ya. Back then, I could remember tons of phone numbers but now, I can barely remember my own. Also, we weren't on the phone (landline) all friggin' day like we are now.
