    Dos and Don'ts in Sending SMS

    1. Avoid participating in text games endorsed by television stations. These games are forms of gambling.
    2. Don't pass text messages that ruin other people's reputation.
    3. Don't invade the privacy of other people who ask that they be left alone.
    4. Delicate information about bomb threat, fire or any disaster should be handled with extreme caution.
    5. Avoid using vulgar terms or sending messages that are malicious in nature.
    6. Observe courtesy when responding to a texter who had sent his message by mistake to your number.
    7. As much as possible, avoid texting while in a conversation with real people.
    8. Unless in case of emergency, don't send text messages past midnight when people are asleep.
    9. Jokes should always entertain and inspire, not upset or put people down.
    10. Texting spiritual truths is greatly encouraged.

    Healthy Texting

    1. Subscribe to a network, which is also used by your friends, relatives, officemates and text mates. This way, you could save a lot of money.
    2. Texting a person who just sits beside you is not advisable.
    3. Avoid texting while driving. If you cannot help it, avoid driving while texting.
    4. As a matter of caution, texting near gas stations is discouraged.
    5. Sending the same messages repeatedly to one person can be irritating to the receiver at times.
    6. Turn off your mobile phones while in chapel, classroom, hospital, library, theater, airplane, golf course or beside your friend who needs your full attention.
    7. Don't flaunt your mobile phones in public so as not to get the attention of robbers or thieves.
    8. As much as possible, have your mobile phones insured.
    9. Before putting it in your pocket, lock the keypad of the mobile phone to avoid making unwanted calls.
    10. Don't drink alcoholic beverages, take drugs or engage in gambling while texting or not.

    Text Lingo

    Filipino texters have developed a special lingo that is not necessarily grammatical. While proper grammar and English usage should always be observed, as insisted by the Department of Education, text lingo can be useful while texting in a hurry.
    The following are characters, figures, words and phrases that are most commonly contracted in text messaging. Applicable to English and Filipino messages.
    # - number
    @ - at
    & - and
    ? - what?
    1 - one (Numbers are not usually spelled out.)
    2 - two, to, too (Tomorrow becomes 2moro.)
    3 - three, tree (The name Trina becomes 3na.)
    4 - four, for (Forget becomes 4get.)
    8 - eight; ate (Mate becomes m8.)
    a - preferred over per
    attn - attention
    b - be, bee (Wana b my txtm8?)
    b4 - before
    bc - busy
    bin - not a good substitute for been (Bin means container.)
    bkit - bakit?
    btw - by the way
    btwn - between
    bye - good bye
    c - see; sea (Sino ay nagiging cno?)
    coz - because
    cul8r - See you later.
    d - the; hindi
    d8 - date
    dat - that
    dem - them
    dey - they
    dis - this, these
    dnt - do not
    dsnt - does not
    every - evry
    f - if
    fil - feel
    frens - friends
    frm - from
    fyi - for your information
    g - gee
    gud - good (Good morning becomes gud am.)
    hi - hi, high
    i - eye
    l8 - late
    laf - laugh
    k - okay
    luv - love
    m - I am, am (Embrace becomes mbrace)
    mssg - message
    n - and, in
    need - nid
    nite - night, knight
    nt - not
    nxt - next
    ol - all
    pis - fish, peace (Office becomes opis.)
    pls - please
    q - queue, cue
    r - are (Hu r u?)
    rsvp - respond upon receiving
    s - is
    san - saan?
    smyl - smile
    t - tee, tea
    til - until
    tlg - talaga?
    tnx - thanks
    text - txt
    thru - through
    tru - true
    ty - thank you
    u - you
    ur - your, you're
    w/ - with
    w/c - which
    w/o - without
    wen - when
    y - why

    Reminders

    1. One trick is to spell an English word in Filipino in order to save space. (Who becomes hu and these becomes dis.)
    2. Some vowels are dropped. (Kailan becomes kelan or simply wen. Have becomes hav.)
    3. Avoid word contractions that are hard to recognize. (Ndpndnc is certainly not a good substitute for independence.)
    4. Use a smiley to convey an emotion. :-)
    5. Use text lingo only when in a hurry. Trina (instead of 3na) would be glad if you take the effort of spelling her name correctly.

    The above commentary is for entertainment purposes only. If this was actual joke the tone you just heard would have been followed by emergency response information. It's supposed to be fun people.
