Refusing to participate in the useful practice of text-messaging, no matter how appropriate or convenient the situation lends itself. Seems to be linked to age and/or coolness level.

Can also be used reciprocally, like when you dump an incoming call, and reply with a text.
Protexting activities include:

Immediately return calling sender upon receipt of text

Making people want to stab you with frivolous calls and voice messages like "I got your text, and blah...blah...blah."

Not recognizing texting as social progress.

Bitching about the 50 cents you had to pay last month because you don't have text on your plan.
