Yes, I use a cell phone many hours a day, and prefer to send messages rather than call. For me it is more efficient in terms of time. With it, several tasks can be performed simultaneously.

I definitely prefer to send messages in most aspects of my life. Everybody agrees that it is more convenient and cheaper or even for free. But on the other hand making plans requires many arrangements and setting the details. For that reason a phone call may be an easier way to find out what your friend's preferences are and faster way to find a compromise.

To a group of friends I like messaging in the group chat. It save lots of time and everyone can give their ideas. If I want to meet a friend, I will phone him/her to decide promptly

I usually use emails more often than text messages....... As you see, I'm a bit a work-oriented person. ;)

I usually prefer text messages when making a plan with my friends. It is easier and comfortable for me. You know, nowadays many people would rather prefer text messages than speaking like me. People usually use the app WhatsApp for it.

As a Generation Z, it is needless to say that I used to send tons of messages and share a lot of memes on an everyday basis.

I like to speak to friends than send messages to make plans. Because making plans need concentration, discussion, and final agreement. Direct speaking or making a phone call will save more time.

Nowadays it's hard don't communicate through messages. We use Whatsapp all the time to communicate different things in a different context. However, sometimes I prefer to call my friends and speak more time. Also when something is very important I prefer to call.
