Cell phones, the World Wide Web, IM, email and SMS text messaging has created a language of it's own, much to the distaste of many teachers, parents and employers! But regardless of how we may feel about the new lingo, it's here to stay, so we may as well all understand what it means and how to use the abbreviations and emoticons - and I guess it does save time, especially for those who don't touch type or have to struggle with tiny cell phone keypad buttons ;0). 

If you're a cell phone or SMS buff, while you're here, don't forget to try out our free ringtones, SMS text messaging software (no cell phone required) or the free trial ringtones converter software!
