E-Mail vs Instant Messages

Postby MonteLDS on Sun May 16, 2004 10:06 pm

Does anyone here ever use that anymore for non-bussiness reasons?

Ever since the IM, and unlimited internet use I have found e-mail to have less value except for in bussiness.

I never email any of my friends I just wait till they come online. Maybe I just never have anything important to say....

Here I go rambling on about a topic that has little impact on most of our lives.

Not al of my friends use ICQ or other chat systems, but most of them and I are in a email list (yahoogroups).

I use ICQ, MSN Messenger and iChat (AOL) systems to talk to 2 or 3 people on a daily basis, one of them is my spouse.

I still e-mail my friends from time to time, especially when I don't see them on AIM.

If they aren't online, or don't use an IM program, I email them.

Talking about coincidences, me too, I send her some SMSs when I can't connect, like in traffic or bad GPRS signal.

Do you know new phones had emoticons too?

Yeah, my scanner is not good enough, I bet Cfitz can make the image look better.

We discovered eventually, she send me :-X in a message like in ICQ and my phone displayed the kiss emoticon, then later she found more emoticons directly with the insert symbol option, but they are characters actually. :D

Nice! I've just started using MMS on my Nokia 3530, no emoticons yet, though. I'm going to download YahooMessenger for my phone, let's see if it works.
