    I had to check my quick texts to make sure they didn't have any of these lines.

    Too bad they don't keep stats on how often the "bootycall" quick text actually works.

    Obviously an oversimplified version of the story. No solid two year relationship is destroyed overnight by some canned text messages. Maybe a rocky relationship on it's last leg where trust has been an issue in the past or an over-controlling relationship with a dramatic partner who is paranoid and insecure, but not a solid relationship built on trust.

    It makes for good news though. "Beware of cell phones that could ruin your relationship!!" :eek:

    If it was merely the text messages that caused the break. Why wouldn't they be back together after he cleared his name? Must have been a nasty fight.

    So once they found the same messages on other phones why didn't they get back together? Something fishy about this. It wasn't his fault so wtf.

    I agree. If they state they want to do everything they can for him then why don't they just call her up, say hey come up here to the store, and then show her the presets in the phones. I mean heck, take one out of a box and show her they are shipped that way.

    Seems if he is living with friends then either it was a rocky and that was a good excuse for her to leave (she wanted to anyway) or he just plan didn't fight for her and just walked away.

    You know, he wouldn't have this problem were he not dating a twelve-year-old, or at least a woman with the mentality of one....

    'Bootycall' is a pre-set text message? I don't even find that funny.

    Agree. Things not adding up.

    Seems to be the case.

    Two and a half year relationship broken by this? More to the story...

    Good point about mental age.

    Speaking of which, I wonder if I've left my teens? :eek: :p

    I don't at all doubt the story - and Virgin doesn't exactly cultivate a squeaky clean, virtuous, God Bless the Queen & Cornish Pasties image - but there's got to be something underneath that isn't being related. I'm sure the guy feels bad, but it just seems like it was a great excuse to get out of a situation for the girlfriend, for whatever reason.

    Meh, sometimes just a quick "?" works fine. ;) :D
