This has to be one of the more interesting polls I've seen.

:-) Thanks.

I asked my sister this question for text messages and she said "It depends on the person". The only actually number I could get out of her was "A few days" >.>

Thanks. :-)

I didn't think adding "When you call someone" to the list would work because, well, when you call someone you either get them right then or you get their voice mail or answering machine. There is the off chance of them saying "Can you call back in..." or "Can I call you back in...", ... *shrug*
