    I have my phone set to where I get the most minimal notification of a text.

    My phone is always on vibrate, I usually wake up to a few missed calls every week.

    Still right next to my bed. Fuck, on my bed. All seems well...

    My phone is on my desk, so if I've gotten into bed, I'm sure as hell not getting out for something so trivial.

    Same here. I have enough trouble sleeping as it is, don't need random calls + texts waking me up.

    I silence my phone and don't put it on vibrate. If there's an emergency people know to call my home phone.

    My cell phone is in the basement, charging at night. Need to get ahold of me? It can wait.

    My cell gets turned off, at night. I hate being woke up, by the phone.

    I find typing on tiny keypads to be clumsy, at best. If only someone could invent a means of real-time voice communication, instead....

    Man, I don't even mess around with that stupid site, if I can't see anything but a white screen without allowing 15 lines on no script, then they got no business for me.

    I see what you did there!

    When I'm at home, I turned off my call phone. If anybody needs to call me, they can use the old land line system.

    There has been times I forgot to turn off my cell phone at home and real late at night, my cell phone is ringing and it is always a wrong number.

    Except for in school, then it's on silent

    Once I go to bed, my phone is on silent. People best not interrupt my sleep unless someone died.

    If your phone is silent, then it makes no difference if the text is "lol hay its forAM" or "lol hay mah mom dieded".

    My celly is an old school car phone; emergency use only. My neighbor missed out on visiting her son from Hawaii when I went home. But I've told her in the past use the land line because v/m is ignored as well as missed calls.

    I silence my phone when I go to bed for the explicit purpose of not being woken up. I do leave it on so I can see if anyone did call at night. Usually wrong numbers.

    I never answer my cell phone, even during the day. Even if it rings (which is rare, since hardly anyone has the number), I just wait until a few minutes after it finishes ringing/vibrating and then check and see if whoever it was left a voicemail. At night, I leave the phone on, but it's in a different room from where I sleep, so I wouldn't hear a call anyway.

    And I don't text at all, so that's not an issue. I don't know how to text, have no desire to learn and I'm not entirely sure my six year old phone is even capable of doing it.

    That's some hard-hitting investigative journalism, right there.

    So, is walking into open man hole covers on the count of texting going to be more common place now?

    On that note a grown woman was almost run over today at Sam's Club responding to a text in the middle of the street, completely oblivious, so I'm inclined to say yes.

    On a related note I had to have text messages disabled on my cell phone because a friend of mine kept sending me chain text messages @ 5 cents a pop. At first it was cute getting them but 8 a day times 30 days that had to stop.

    This article describes my sister perfectly. Ever since she's discovered the "joys" of texting on her phone and more recently her iPod Touch (sometimes on both at the same time...I honestly don't know how), neither have ever left her hands unless they are charging. She's up and texting people even at 3:00 AM, so it's no wonder why she never wakes up before noon if she can help it.

    I myself almost never keep my phone on. I only really use it when I need to get in touch with my parents while I'm out. Otherwise it stays off at all times near my school stuff near the front door, far away from my bed.
