My feeling is this - people seem to be put off by "texted" because it sounds like the "d" sound is redundant due to what 'Rdajer' referred to as an, "awkward two syllable jump," which is uncomfortable in the mouth to some people when saying it. To them, it 'feels' wrong. To me, "texted" is correct because "text," as a noun is in and of itself a complete word; a complete thought. Add "ed" to the end of "text" to get the past tense, just as in "tested." Otherwise, its like saying that the thing isn't "text" at all, but rather a "tex," (as in, "I sent her a "tex" this afternoon"), in which case we would use "texed" as the past tense.
