International cell phone companies such as Apple, Samsung, Nokia, Acer, Huawei, Oppo, and even local producers such as Cherry Mobile, My Phone and Star Mobile are yearly offering brand new models of cell phones that will satisfy the customer needs in terms of high tech and quality products in an affordable and fair price.
Mobile network companies such as Globe and Smart are now offering unlimited text and call promos with an affordable price. Not like before, text messaging were expensive and cost a lot of money. This promos help a lot of subscribers to send messages as many as they like for a day.
According to 2009 stats, there are about 72 million mobile services subscriptions (roughly 80% of the Filipino population), with around 1.39 billion SMS messages being sent in the Philippines daily. Because of the large amount of text messages being sent by Filipinos, the Philippines became known as the “text capital of the world” during the late 1990’s until the early 2000’s. 4
According to several articles, this new interventions happening seems to be a problem since educators started to noticed their (IM/TM) impact on the students behaviour, performance, academic and social development. Students who use messaging frequently often use bad grammar, poor punctuation, and improper abbreviations.
A new language has developed through the social medium of text messaging. “Because” is “cuz”, “are you?” is “RU?”, “laugh out loud” is “LOL”, “later” is “l8er” and “got to go” is “G2G”.

According to the respondents, at the age of 10-15 years old, they start using cell phone. This is the evidence of a wide range of communication among teenagers that wants to get in touch with their friends and meet different people in a way of asking phone numbers or sometimes by asking to plug their phone numbers by their contacts.
Base on the survey conducted, 9 out of 10 spent fifteen pesos (Php15.00) and above for cell phone load. This is an indication of the different promos of the telecommunication companies. The more money a consumer spends for a cell phone load, the more savings he/she may get.
The ratio of messages sent a day by the respondents from zero-three (0-3), three-six (3-6), and six and above (6-above) is 3:2:5.
All in all, 7 out of 10 students said that text messaging affects their literacy level.
Majority of the respondents said that text messaging does not affect their reading ability and speaking skills but it greatly affects their literacy in terms of writing.
Activity sheets were distributed to the respondents,...
