Did You Send Out a New Year's Text Message?

Did You Send Out a New Year's Text Message?

Every New Year, I usually make a point to send all my friends a "Happy New Year" text message. Maybe I was having too much fun when the clock struck 12 because I completely forgot to get my phone out and send a single text message. My friend on the other hand, woke up the next morning to realize that she had sent out a mass text to hundreds of her friends. I'm sure she'll be overjoyed when her phone bill arrives at the end of this month!

According to Valleywag, millions of text messages were sent simultaneously at midnight on New Year's. Many arrived, many didn't, and many were delayed. I'm curious to know whether or not you are a New Year's texter? . . . Scroll down to leave your answer!

Of course! I received a lot from my friends at exactly midnight. I rarely send out texts but since it was New Year's, why not? I kind of sent mine out a couple of hours late because I was too busy partying.. haha oops!

We live in Easter timezone, but were in Pacific for New Year's. I sent "Happy 9 o'clock!" text messages to my friends who texted me at midnight Eastern. :D

Noooo - too expensive. Also, bit silly to send a random text to people you aren't really close to...

NO I didn't because I didn't :) that's all.

It's kind of a shame that so many people are irritated by holiday texts. At least these people thought enough of you to send you one; they could've just as easily deleted your number. I have unlimited texts on my plan so I guess I can't "share the pain" of having to pay for them later. I only give my number to people I want to have it so it doesn't faze me to get random messages from people I haven't talked to in a few months. My friends know where I stand; no, I didn't send out any NYE texts..

I think holiday texts are obnoxious. It's like "Oh, I can't bother to call you and wish you a happy holiday." Really, I think getting text messages from people borders on rude, anyway.

had sent via Y!Msgr SMS texts, but realized there's an extra step for the recipient to authorize/ok a text sent to their phone. weaksauce! I think friends tried to send 'round 12a, but I got em way late, couple of hours later. Good thing I assigned a mild alert tone for incoming msgs...
