I believe the past tense of text should be texted, but pronounced with the 2nd "t" silent. I've checked quite a few dictionaries, and the word "texted" does not exist. Then I came across this one:
American Heritage Dictionary - Cite This Source text (tÄ›kst) Pronunciation Key n.
The original words of something written or printed, as opposed to a paraphrase, translation, revision, or condensation. The words of a speech appearing in print. Words, as of a libretto, that are set to music in a composition. Words treated as data by a computer. The body of a printed work as distinct from headings and illustrative matter on a page or from front and back matter in a book. One of the editions or forms of a written work: After examining all three manuscripts, he published a new text of the poem. Something, such as a literary work or other cultural product, regarded as an object of critical analysis. A passage from the Scriptures or another authoritative source chosen for the subject of a discourse or cited for support in argument. A passage from a written work used as the starting point of a discussion. A subject; a topic. A textbook.
tr.v. text·ed, text·ing, texts
To send a text message to: She texted me when she arrived. To communicate by text message: He texted that he would be late.
Now I'm really confused!
