Because we totally need to make our Vita replace our phones.......

 

seriously, if you want to text, you use a cell phone.

You can text your friend using the PSN it even has threaded messages. It works over WiFi and 3G.

One is an infinite consciousness capable of being and creating whatever it chooses, the other is an illusion imprisoned by its own perceived and programmed limitations."

I actually agree with the OP. I know cell phones are much better for texting, however I'm planning to ditch mine at the end of the month. I'm on disability right now so a phone is a cost I really don't need.

 

Uhm /looks sheepish/ Yeah the PSN messenger system. Total brain fart. I'm an old geezer. I'll blame my pain medications for that brain dead moment. But the following is still valid :smileyhappy:

 

I look at it like this, the more the Vita can do, the more likely it'll appeal to people and sell. Granted there are a lot of things that most of us would not use or want, but if it helps drive the Vita's sales, why not?

i heard or read somewhere that the 3G version of it actually has a phone number you can text with...it is under System settings i believe. but it only works on the 3G version if i remeber right. i only have the Wifi version so i cannot confirm this.

The 3G model can receive text messages, they show up as a "Operator Message". As said above you can not respond to the text with the Vita.
