Cheetah and I text each other, a lot. Way to much if you ask me. It's a good way to keep in contact, but it really does get annoying. Especially with my phone, an older Sprint model. Anyone who's had Sprint over a year knows that you have to log on to your internet before you can type, send, or read a message. This can take up to 5 minutes to send or read one message, it's almost not worth it. New Sprint phones are like other sms capable phones, you just type and send, no need to connect to anything. I need one before I go crazy. I've already started feeling my phone vibrate when it's not even in my pocket.
