  • Texting! Texting I don't have to keep asking people to repeat themselves (usually I can't hear for the kids in the house) and if something needs my attention asap I don't have to put the person on hold or hang up with them fast.

  • Honestly depends on who is on the other end LOL.

    I prefer talking to most people but texting helps when my kids are going nutso and need my attention and I have a sister who loves to call several times a day and chat. Texting helps me keep talking to her but not have to try and do it right then and there LOL.

  • It just depends on what needs to be said. If it's something short and simple then I'll text it but if I need to actually have a conversation with somebody then I will call the person.

  • Texting. The only time I'd rather call someone or have someone to call me is in situations where the phone call is going to be less than 30 seconds. For example like when I'm picking someone up I'll call and say "Hey I'm here" and they will be like "Ok on my way out." Call ended.

  • I think texting is so impersonal. If I want to talk with someone I call and we talk. I will text if it is nothing more than-we are on our way-thats about it. I think it is quicker to pick up the phone and ask a few questions or catch up then text and wait for them to respond and then text a line or two and then wait. It is quicker to talk then to text-at least for me and my friends.

  • I prefer email, but between talking and texting, I definitely prefer texting. I can't hear anything on phones.

  • I prefer texting as long i dont have a huge story to tell.. lol then it gets annoying.. and no one can hear me emphasize words that are important.. if its just little things i would rather text.
