When I am doing plans with friends I prefer to do so through the phone call. But sometimes I send text messages to my customers when I could not reach them through the phone calls to tell them about a part arrival date , warranty approval arrival and so on. Thanks .

I prefer to send text messages for my friends. However if I want to get an appointment or invite someone I do not know them very well I prefer to make a call.

It depends on situation.But I prefer to send text messages via mobile apps when i make a plan with friends for a dinner or hangout or movie..Because i think that each and everyone of my fri might be busy with their own work to speak on phone.

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.
