SMS flirting competition reveals catch messages
Posted on 18-Dec-2003 20:36. | Tags Filed under: News.

LG Mobile Phones ran a competition that revealed the Top Phone Flirts of 2003. Winners were announced, marking the finale of its LG Text in the City contest in the US. The competition captured best one liners sent via text messaging. The contest explored the emerging trend of phone flirting and how the tech savvy use design features of their mobile phones to get people's attention.

On the East coast, the winning lines showed holiday spirit and a classic New York flavor. On the West coast, winning entries revealed a romantic and humorous approach to flirtation.

Winner Jennifer Cohn, 24, of Manhattan, loves to use her phone to flirt. "Can I snap your picture so I can show Santa what I gotta have for xmas?" struck a chord with voters, earning her the title biggest phone flirt. She said, "Walking up to someone in a bar and laying a line on them isn't new. Text messaging is a more fun and unique way to get noticed."

"Are you a cop, cause you're definitely one of New York's finest?" caught the attention of voters. New York's "king" of phone flirting Darwin Ocampo, 30, of Queens, NY, admits he didn't come up with this line. But, when he heard it used, he always wanted to try it out himself. He said he phone flirts with his wife and between them they've shared more than 1,000 text messages.

Southern Californian John Corpus, 33, says the trick to phone flirting is to "just go with it." His winning message, "If I were to lie 11 roses next to you, you'd make the perfect dozen," conveyed a romantic flair.

Finally, "Do you believe in casual TEXT?" is the line of Californian Erica Reyes, 24, who says that she doesn't just take hints -- she likes to give them. "My friends and I have fun trying out new flirty text messages while we're out and it's also an easy way to stay in touch with my boyfriend."

These witty phone flirts have won a free LG VX6000 camera phone with one year of service and a celebrity makeover with stylist to the stars Rebecca Weinberg, who will help them perfect their sexy-in-the-city look so they can text message their flirty remarks around town on a special VIP night courtesy of LG.
