Aug 01, 2010 Dealing with texters
These days, many people’s only phones are cellphones. Many people do not check their cell voice messages — and even allow their voice message boxes to reach full capacity, perhaps to prevent people from mistakenly expecting their messages will be heard — but instead rely on texting and caller ID. However, caller ID cannot convey a message.
I do not text while driving, which is among the ideal times for me to make phone calls. I cannot text from my office’s land phone line, either. Moreover, my cellphone automatically blocks caller ID from seeing my phone number, which nixes people from calling my cellphone back from caller ID. Fortunately, the [insert cellphone number]@vtext.com emailing option enables using email to send a text message to anybody’s cellphone.
