We asked the public to come up with catch phrases for text messaging company. This contest was not sponsored by any particular service, but an idea suggested by one of our users, Jennifer Seay. As expected, there were some great entries. This contest also points out why we don't try to sell individual ideas. Many people submitted the same, or variations on the same idea. The entries were judged by The Sandbox Group, a media collective based in Manhattan.

And The Winner Is....

U had me at :)
