    Just wondering if anyone text and drives and would admit to it. I have been known to but usually I don't even have the phone within eyesight when driving.

    If I Am in the Land Cruiser I won't even talk on the phone due to noise much less try to text.

    I limit myself to texting when I stop. I may do speech to text sometimes but even that can be distracting.

    If I do it's when I'm stopped or I have my wife text what I'm saying. Plus thanks to Entune and Siri I have no excuse.

    No way! It's an epidemic these days. Just this morning on my way to work some little punk started to drift into my lane (had his head down fixated on his phone) . A honk of the horn and a swift "You're number one!" shook him up real good. He seemed upset that i disturbed his little business meeting with his phone.

    I don't text and drive, and if I get a text while driving I have my truck read the text to me!

    Siri is good for that kind of stuff. Reads your text and types them up for you.

    I don't need Siri, my stereo reads my texts! If I want to send a text I use my S3 voice commands, so I don't have to type!:thumbsup:

    Well I drive but find it rather difficult to text when I don't even own a cell phone or anything remotely like that.

    With that said when I drive to work & back home just about every person who drives by me in the next lane has both their hands on a cell phone and driving with their knee. I'm like your a special kind of stupid aren't ya. I should install a train horn and honk at those who are so intent on their cell phones they don't pay attention to whats going on around them. They swerve all over the road freakin idiots.

    Hella, I've lived all my life without one, I do have a landline and everyone I know, knows to call me there, leaves a message if I don't answer or I will answer if home. Once I'm home I return calls.

    I'm not a phone yacker, I rarely use one, most times its to call for scripts, doc & dentist appointments, once in a blue moon work will call, or like tonight. I called my buddy Doug to see if we were still on for his wife's Bday party. Call kinda went like this:
    Doug answers: whatup, Me: still on, Doug: yep, Me: Leaving soon, click.
    I've just never been big on talking on a phone, I'd rather talk in person. Oh and my ex wife will call every so often.

    For a short period I did have a pager. If I'm at work they can call and leave a message, I'll get back with them. I currently have no need for a cell phone.
    However, someday in the future I may buy one. Who knows.

    I love the look on peoples faces when they ask me for my cell number & I tell them I don't have one.

    No way! it is too dangerous & irresponsible. My 2013 Taco has phone access in the steering wheel. I can use my Iphone using Bluetooth through the stereo easily.

    i might be one of the few ppl still holding out on a smartphone, so no i do not text and drive. the one feature i appreciate of my taco is the integrated bluetooth so i can talk on the phone through the truck.

    I'll talk on the phone, but not text. Has nothing to do with good morals. I'm just too scared of an accident. Plus I can just use use my hands free
