Seriously? Multiple things at once? Driving would be the first choice, right? I use my phone about three times a day for less than five minutes and I get more done. And I make a little over $100,000 a year, dude. I doubt I'd make more by texting all day.

Didn't ask how much you made. And I wasn't even thinking of driving either. I meant you can do more if you are short of time. You can listen to music while walking down the street and have privacy when texting. Try going all three. Texting might take longer but it is more convenient.

With apps like Whatsapp, i think the SMS's will go down and it's a reason to worry about loss of revenue for the carriers. It's almost data now for everything. Not sure if these numbers will continue to rise or to say even stay at this position. hmmm.
