Message on a church readerboard:

"Honk if you love Jesus. Text while driving if you want to meet him."

Texting is such an easy and convenient way to send a quick message to someone immediately.  It can be sent at the senders convenience and received at the receivers convenience.  We all use it, right?

Does your phone have a delayed-texting feature?  My Samsung Galaxy does and I love it! When I tell people I send delayed texts and many of them are to myself they look at me like "Why?".  Then I explain some of the many wonderful applications.

Do you have a friend with an upcoming birthday you don't want to forget?   Write a text to them and schedule it for the morning of their birthday.  They will appreciate you being the first to wish them happy birthday. 

Do you want to remember to call someone in three days?  Send yourself a text scheduled for the time you want to call them.

Do you want to remember to stop by the pharmacy tomorrow?  Send yourself a text scheduled to come in at the time you want to go pick it up. 

Do you have a thought you don't want to forget?  Send yourself a quick delayed text scheduled to come in later when you'll be home or at the office where you can write it down. 

Those are just a few examples of how I use it.  For me, the delayed texting feature is way more convenient than putting a reminder in my calendar for certain things.  And, it's better than writing a note because I can never find the note.  :-)

I am thankful for the delayed texting feature on my phone! 


Remember: NEVER text while driving!

I work my poor Siri to death, Carol! LOL Seriously, I don't text & drive so, I tell Siri to do everything for me!

When we were visiting New Orleans last month, I would ask Siri, "Where can I find the best oysters in New Orleans?" VIOLA! I love that function but, I still need to figure out delayed texts. I'm up after everyone else goes to bed and would liove to be able to leave texts to arrive first thing in the morning - 9AM as opposed to 1 or 2AM! LOL

Good afternoon Carol - I don't think that the iPhone has that.  It is a very good feature.

Hi Debe Maxwell, CRS ,
I work "Hey Google" pretty hard too and I'm retired.  LOL   As a single person, who travels alone quite a bit, I love all the helpful aids available through the phone.  

Here is how Margaret Rome says she does delayed-text on her iPhone:
I ask SERI to text, email or schedule a future appointment. It works really well, super easy, and convenient.

Hi faye schubert ,
It's actually easier than the instructions indicate.  All you do is type the text as usual then hold down the send button until the calendar pops up. Then choose the date and time and VOILA!

Seri will remind me to do it later, but she will not do it later.  A- I tried it and B- I spent about an hour researching it last night.  There is an app for iphone, but after looking at the "permissions" it wanted I opted not to keep it on my phone.  It was called scheduled app and it would do scheduled texts on an iphone.  

My CRM from my computer does allow me to schedule texts.
