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.

I love to send messages to my friend and emojis are so cute they each of them have different feelings and they are awesome but phone calls are quick to spake to take a plan or decision.

I think it depends. If it's not in a hurry I prefer to text messages to contact with my friends. But if it's complicated and it can't be spoke just in few words I'd prefer to talk face-to-face with friends to make a big, complex plan.
