I prefer to text but depends on the plan if it is a big plan I prefer to talk about it and organize it, but if it something like go for a coffee or dinner I prefer just text to my friend.

It depends on the situation.Sometimes I send lots of text message.But texting message makes a situation a little complexed and takes time to get a clear point.Sometimes calling is faster than texting.btw I use these two ways nearly everyday and like both.

I prefer to speak to friends to make plans because messaging takes lots of time and by messaging you can't clear your point. Sometimes messages make things unclear and misunderstandable. so I prefer to speak over messaging.

I prefer to send texts. It makes more fun and memories between friendship. Besides, I don’t need to answer back immediately when I have serious matter.

I send lots of text messages to my friends because, unfortunately, they all live in other cities.

I prefer text messages when information or questions are short yes/no type. I usually make phone calls when I want to know others openion.

Depends of the subject the conversation, if it’s about a big plan I prefer to talk by a call, but if it’s just a meet or something basic , I will rather text for sure
