I prefer to ring someone, but usually is easier to connect to another guy by messages as someone could be at work or be simply busy.

Honesty I prefer speak to my friends before making a plan, as I know they're are stupid and they don't get it if I'll send a text message.

Depends on the situation. But it is much nicer to speak directly with our friends :)
