I tend to send text messages to friends instead of calling them, because it is much more convenient for both of us, due to they might be busy working and it will be easy for them to answer a text message whenever they can.

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?'.
