From voice messaging, texting to video chat, the options are pretty varied. Personally, I find that I am a big fan of text messaging, as it is easy to read and in some ways easier to do. I am sure there are those who love voice messaging; however I am a fan of texting as it is easier to read then go into the menu to hear a voice from someone and then respond the same way. About a year or so ago Microsoft launched their Xbox 360 Chatpad. Not one to text on cell phones, the whole QWERTY keypad thing was new to me. Well once I started to use it I was hooked and text messaging became that much easier."
