If I'm not in hurry to get response from others msg is better I think. If I need to have result right know I'd like to talk to friends face by face or by phone.

I always use text messages to make plans or invitations with friends. It is the easiest way to communicate with other people if I don't know whether they are still at work.

I remember and miss my friend we used to invite each other for a walk daily. One thing about me I feel incomplete when I use short phrases in a conversation. Here is the most used short phrase from our daily conversation 'where?' for 'where are you?'.

I send lots of text messages to friends and relatives. I'm a member of a group of teachers of English and I'm a teacher of mathematics at a language school. I love your way of learning how to write text messages . You're so helpful and to be here with you is so useful thank you.

It ups to the situation for instance when I am busy especially at work I prefer to send message so I don't need to use my cellphone nonstop. On the other hand, whenever I find a free time I prefer to make a phone call especially to my close friends to arrange a plane which is much more easier than typing;)

I prefer to send a text of messages when I invite my friends to meet for a movie or dinner. I also send a text of messages when I want to talk about daily issues in life with my friends or family. However, I like to speak on the cell phone with my friends for a short trip at the weekends and other important plans.
