Survey finds that close to 50% of cell phone users would dump someone via SMS
It's Valentine's Day and the last thing anyone in a steady relationship would want to occur is having someone break up with them. To add further insult to the injury, it's even worse when it happens via text messaging. Mobile social network MocoSpace released their results from a survey that they conducted surrounding the habits of cell phone users. One question asked if users ever used their cell phone to break up with someone – it revealed that 57 percent said yes; with 48 percent saying that hey would use a text message to end a relationship. So instead of talking on the phone or even seeing one another in person, close to half of users would consider going through with sending a text messaging – it's definitely one of the harshest ways of getting dumped. It may not be pretty, but what could be worse than that?

What about MMS? Imagine a video break-up or a picture. lol. People "hook-up" via text so id imagine a great number to break up via text. Sometimes it's best to break up via the phone, text or email. why? because some people are crazy!!!

A video breakup via MMS would be freaking hilarious.
