Fastest text messaging?

What do you think? I ask because I had a sidekick forever that I just dropped in a glass of water about a month ago, and now I'm back to a regualar phone. I used to think that QWERTY keyboards were it, and that nothing was easier or faster, but now I've discovered predictive text and gotten good at it (I use T9, they have a tutorial to help with speed, here: www.textfast.t9.com).

I'm convinced the average 14-year-old girl can type faster on her cell phone than I can on my computer.

Lol! That's great. I find there are two camps of people that text message: 14-year-old girls and broke-ass people like me. Much cheaper to text, so I learned "trial by fire". T9 does make it a lot easier, though. It's amusing to see the words they have in the dictionary, too: http://www.mobileburn.com/pressrelea...source=ARCHIVE

I thought I could text pretty fast but then I saw my younger brother and his high school friends on their phones and was humbled.

My feelings on text messaging were summed up in the last episode of Boondocks.
