So far I've reached 948 texts (incoming and outgoing) for the month of November. I'm running this silly experiment to see how high the number can reach this month. A few things I've learned:
1. Sprint's count of my usage sometimes changes
At one point, the system told me I had used 717 texts (I have unlimited), but the next day it said I had 640. So "948" may or may not be an accurate current count.
2. Some people really get annoyed by text messages
I won't mention any names, but some of my friends think this is the dumbest, most annoying experiment I've ever run. They might be right. But I don't care.
3. It's good to know which friends have unlimited texts -- and which don't
I can send and receive as many messages as I want, but not everyone has that option. I'm learning who DOESN'T so that I don't send them lots of texts, or so I know why they don't reply very often.
4. A little encouraging word is usually appreciated
With some of the people involved in the church ministries, I'm using my hypertexting season as a way to send encouraging messages throughout the day. Figure that's a good use of technology, eh?
