    sending text messages/texting messages

    Hi,

    Until this moment, I've only spoken and written as below. However, today I found an interesting word "text".
    I've always used it as a noun, but there is also a verb form.


    You can easily picture a bus full of teens sending text messages.


    Here's my question:

    Can I say "texting messages" without changing the meaning?



    Thanks in advance.
    James

    Re: sending text messages/texting messages

    Just say "texting."
    It is now a commonly used verb.

    Don't text and drive.
    He was texting the whole time we were at dinner.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
