I keep it plugged in, because it works fine, and look at it nostalgically sometimes. I loved using it. It was the perfect size and was ahead of its time. I don't like my iTouch as much as the TX. Now I use mostly my Sony Experia Tablet Z, but am going to sign up for the 3G plan with the Moto X and think I am really going to like that. Is there a Texting For Dummies thread here, because I have no clue.
