Oftentimes I send messages through text or online messaging apps when my friends are far from me and when it is not possible for us to meet and plan things.

As usual, I make a call to my friend to save time. But in some cases, I don't know when, where and what we decide to do, I prefer to send some texts. While I wait for my friend's response, I can do other works.

Sometimes I prefer to send lots of text messages and sometimes I would like to make calls if we have enough time to talk about a plan. I think speaking is better option when make a plan .

A phone call is the preferable choice for me, unless I know that the other person is at someplace ( like in a lecture hall or a meeting ) where he or she won't be able to attend a call but they might reply back to my texts.

Do you send lots of text messages or do you prefer to speak to friends to make plans? It depends on the situations. If we have already made a precise plan, a text message is enough, but, If it's a matter of defining the details, I prefer to make a call.

I prefer to send messages. I think it's easier than making a phone call.
