The number one use of smartphones today is reportedly text messaging. People use messaging in everyday life and on the job, so why not in underground occupations as well?
While text messaging may not supersede voice calling for effective communication on the surface, in underground environments it holds unique benefits and merits over voice. Texting is quick and easy and does not interrupt workflow. Messages can be read and answered when the time is convenient and can also serve as a record for later reference. Group messaging is expedient, and finally, the surrounding environment and noise levels do not play an impeding factor.
