Carrying on a Conversation via Texting on Your HTC One

By Bill Hughes

Texts stored sequentially are old school. Your HTC One tracks the contact with whom you’ve been texting and stores each set of back-and-forth messages as a conversation.

In the following figure, you can see that the first page for messaging holds conversations. After you start texting someone, those texts are stored in one conversation. Each text message is presented in sequence, with the author of the text indicated by the alignment of the text on the page and whether the text is in a box (their message) or not (your message).


Note the Add Text box at the bottom of the screen. With this convenient feature, you can send whatever you type to the person with whom you’re having a conversation. In the bad old days, it was sometimes hard to keep straight the different texting conversations you were having. When you start a texting conversation with someone else, there is a second conversation.

Before too long, you’ll have multiple conversations going on. Don’t worry. They aren’t the kind of conversations you need to keep going constantly. No one thinks twice if you don’t text for a while. The following image shows how the text page can look before too long.
