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.

I tend to send text messages to friends instead of calling them, because it is much more convenient for both of us, due to they might be busy working and it will be easy for them to answer a text message whenever they can.
