Gadzooks, at least the PF listened to the warnings and was able to make command decisions.

they say texting while driving is dangerous but this is worse.

pilot get the sack or pay dock.

Flight Aborted 392 Feet Before Landing Because Pilot Was Texting

It's pretty widely accepted that you shouldn't text and operate a vehicle. Especially when that vehicle is a commercial aircraft. Apparently one pilot, though, hasn't taken that advice to heart. And he almost killed a few hundred people because of it.
