Normally, I prefer to discuss in person as I make a plan with my friends because we can make better decisions and we can agree or disagree decisively in person , if we do that via text messages on and off it's more likely to lead to misunderstanding between friends.

I don't have the patience to wait for long by texting, but if not imp plane it's better to use texting.

I do it both ways. But it's true that texting can be very useful to make plans. It saves time and money. Besides you don't have to be afraid of forgetting where and when you are to meet your friends (the texts are still there in your phone).

I prefer to send lots of text messages to make plans with my mates. And I usually use lots of emojis in my text messages. :)

I prefer sending text messages just in case the time is inconvenient for them to talk on the phone.

I have no problem with both options, whether it’s text messages or to speak to friends. I usually do text messages to plan some simple things like a place for dinner, go to the movies, and any other simple things. But when it comes to making serious plans, I prefer to speak directly.

I would prefer to text my friends to meet them and I would like to have a cop of coffee with them in a cafe. Otherwise, they call me sometimes for a cop of tea or rarely for a meal ;)

Great I did Great job.
I Prefer texting messages to friends Instead calling it saves money and time.
And the internet is Available in every were.

I prefer to talk outside than a text Smg if important situation.

I send lots of text messages to my friends to meet them somewhere. Sometimes, I prefer to speak to friends to make plans.
