I prefer to send messages, because we're always too busy to see each other, so we make plans via text.

I also prefer sending a message than making a call. We can save money by not making a call and sending a message is fun sometimes we can use some emojis on what we are feelings.

It's very comfortable to text someone because you can do not disturb person if they are busy but if deal is urgent I'd better make phone call

I prefer sending text messages to my friends for meeting plan because I find it more comfortable than making calls. Messaging is also more convenient in a group chat, for example people can send their responses when they have some free minutes.

I prefer calling to meet my friends. Actually, I don't like texting messages. It depends on my instant situation.
