    I think theres an app floating around to measure text speed somewhere. IF not tell me how fast you text with it. My friend hates it so he uses swype (which i can't use worth crap)

    I text really slow on it, so i got an n1. Verizon plans are just too expensive for me anyway.

    I just did a test using physical - 217 characters per minute, which is about 43 WPM (i think).

    On a computer I get about 85 WPM.

    I'm willing to bet I can probably text as fast as I can type as long as its basic characters.

    Using Extreme Typist, I just did 42 wpm (210 score) lol. addicting.

    EDIT: Just nailed the top score on the web high score list in that app, 271, with 54.2 WPM. A couple errors, too, I think with a bit more practice I could hit 60 wpm.

    I type 135 wpm on the computer.

    The game is more difficult than actually typing out a text message or IM, because the words aren't coherent.

    Voice to text makes me a texter now. Before, my typing was about 7 wpm, with errors.
