I think it depends. If it's not in a hurry I prefer to text messages to contact with my friends. But if it's complicated and it can't be spoke just in few words I'd prefer to talk face-to-face with friends to make a big, complex plan.

I prefer to speak with my friends to make plans. However, In fact, we are now working and we don't have lots of time to meet. Thus, text messages is helpful for me to make plans. With the modern of information technology nowaday, every person have a smartphone or more. Making a plan really too easily.
