My first poll!

Having been newly introduced to the world of text messaging as of this Monday, I decided to see how others use it. I may have left out some choices; I've expressly put in an ‘Other’ option to handle those cases.

Poll #35444 Text messaging habits

Do you write abbreviated or full words?

Abbreviated
2(16.7%)
Full, because I'm fastidious (and I use non-predictive input)
5(41.7%)
Full, because I use predictive input
3(25.0%)
Full, because I write messages on my computer/handheld
0(0.0%)
Other (please specify in a comment)
2(16.7%)

Do you write in upper case, ‘normal’ case, or lower case?

Upper case, because my cell phone does not have lower case
2(16.7%)
Upper case, because I can't be bothered to change case
2(16.7%)
Upper case, because I feel like shouting
0(0.0%)
Normal case, because I'm fastidious (and toggle the case manually)
3(25.0%)
Normal case, because my cell phone supports it (without requiring manual case-switching)
4(33.3%)
Lower case, because I can't be bothered to change case
0(0.0%)
Lower case, because I text on a computer that does not have a working shift key
0(0.0%)
Lower case, because I feel like it
0(0.0%)
Other (please specify in a comment)
1(8.3%)

How many messages do you keep around?

Virtually none—possibly the most important ones
4(33.3%)
As many interesting ones as will fit into the phone's memory
4(33.3%)
All non-spam messages, possibly going as far as to backup the messages to a personal computer/handheld
1(8.3%)
Other
3(25.0%)
