LOL! Those text templates are utterly useless! Funny thing is that nearly every phone has them, and they are more-a-less all equally useless!!!

I don't think this is new at all. I think i had this on one of my previous phones which i don't think was a nokia and it was at least one year ago. Never used it as you can imagine

My Nokia, which I bought when passing through Nigeria, has this helper template: "Dear Friend, This message may come as a surprise to you as we have not met before."

"I love you too" was a very common line in the months preceding my recent break up. It's hard to get quite the right amount of sincerity in the "too".

The word 'love' has lost force/meaning when written. And "I love you" it's a common phrase... Anyhow, I liked it better when it was a virus name (that was many years ago).

These text templates are familiar from phones sold in Finland since 2002 already. My girlfriend has Nokia 3510i in use
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_35 ...
and it has these templates.

Pokemo, iPhone is locked to a specific provider here, I don't like that limitation...

And iPhone doesn't have a vibrating ringer option, so you need to be forever switching the phone off and on as you move in and out of places where ringing phones are inappropriate.

My friend has an iPhone, and he can use the phone in silent+vibration mode.(though the vibration isn't that powerful if you compare it to Nokia phones.)

But still, where did you hear that from? :/

[put at-character here]David: Thanks for setting me straight. I think I heard it in a SlashDot discussion, and I just assumed it was true. Silly me!
