I did it. I sent my first text. And I didn't even use a phone to do it. I know, I know... my first text? What... am I living in the 90's? Why yes. Yes I am and I don't think there's anything wrong with that. The 90's rock. And to all you high schoolers out there... the 90's were much cooler than the 80's. Trust me. So let's stop trying to bring back 80's fashion, okay? Thanks.
Anyways, I have had a cell phone for awhile now, but it's pre-paid. Remember, I'm 100% Dutch and my husband is 100% Frugal so between the two of us, we didn't like the idea of having a monthly cell bill. And besides, I'm a stay-at-home mom, so why pay a hefty cell bill when I can just use my home phone?
But the problem was texting. I could text on my prepaid phone, but it would add up quickly, so I just never did it. And I never checked my texts either. Sorry all my texting friends for never responding to your texts, for never knowing what's going on, and often responding "huh?" when asked if I'd received your messages. My "adult" friends understand this, but not my young friends, and being a youth sponsor at our church, I have quite a few young friends.
So, I resolved the problem. I bought an iPod Touch. Just a one-time purchase of the device and no monthly bill. And there's a free texting app that I downloaded and can text anyone for free! The only catch is that I have to be somewhere with Wi-Fi, which shouldn't be a big deal since I have it at home and most places I go to will probably have it.
Now my question to all you with iPhones and iPod Touches is... what are your favorite apps? I've heard several of you talking about cool ones, but honestly... I never really paid attention since I couldn't use them. But now I want to know!
Let me know your favorite app!
