We’ve all seen those pop-up ads that make us do this or that when we’re on the phone, but if we’re honest with ourselves, we do the same thing on a daily basis. Even when we’re not doing anything, it’s still the same thing we do every day.
Well, not every day, but most of the time. Its the same thing we do every day.
Its probably not a coincidence that you can read the phone number in the pop-up ad, but the text message you received is actually a quote from a friend, a quote you don’t want to send out to everyone you know. We get it. We all do. We just don’t usually put the phone number in and add a text message. It’s not a big deal, but we’re getting a lot of quotes from people we know, so it’s a little bit annoying.
It also happens to be a huge problem for the company that owns the phone company. If you want to send a text message to your friend, you have to include the phone number, and the phone company can’t use the quotes in this way. Although it doesn’t appear to change the quotes, it takes away a lot of them.
Yeah, I know. People often say that they text instead of texting. If you use a phone that is in a different country than the one you are texting from then you are probably going to get quotes, or at least a lot of them.
The problem is that some of these quotes can be completely useless. They don’t mean anything in isolation, and if they are used in a conversation they can have the opposite effect. The best way to avoid this is to use your phone as a text message. It will save you from tons of unnecessary quotes.
The problem is that while texting is great, if you are sending a quote from a text to a friend you are wasting a lot of time doing it. One quick phone call a day is more than enough to send the message to someone, but if you want to send a quote from text to text then this is not the way to go.
If you’re talking to a friend, you can also just use WhatsApp. By texting it into your phone, you won’t need to go through all of the trouble of sending a longer message, and it will be much more efficient. The problem is that WhatsApp is a very, very popular messaging platform. If you’re in the habit of sending a lot of quotes to people, then WhatsApp may not be for you. If you’re not, then you may want to reconsider.
Personally, I rarely text people on WhatsApp. I send a lot of quotes to friends on Facebook and Twitter, but the problem with these platforms is that you can’t just type in a quote and it will appear in the conversation thread. It can take up to a minute or more to load the text-to-speech engine and then the entire conversation will stop. I think that this is because Facebook and Twitter are so inundated with people talking to each other.
The app-to-phone connection is a very bad, slow, inefficient way to communicate. You are forced to hold both phones in the exact same position at the exact same time, you can’t use your thumbs to scroll through the text, you have to hold the phone away from the screen in order to make full use of the screen, and even if you can scroll through the text, you will only see part of it.
