What do you prefer? I have unlimited texts so I like texting more. Of course when I want to have long conversations I would call the person. But overall.. I love texting. It's a better way of communicating while you're in a place where you can't talk out loud or if you have just a quick question. Which would you rather a person do.. text you.. or call you?

I have never texted before. Scary huh???? I feel so old (I'm 37) since I really don't even know how to text.

Haha my mom doesn't know how to text. She makes me text her friends when they text her. It's never too late to learn though!

Yes i also like texting especially when we are out in crowd and then to hear each other we have to literally shout which looks so cheap.I love receiving funny sms from my friends

Aside from beating the cost of calls, I prefer using SMS because I'm more of a one answer per question kind of a person - and I easily get tired of talking...LOL! Also, I like all my communications to be private as much as possible as I don't want anybody overhearing my conversations.

I believe texting is more attractive and prevalent amomg teenager been love due to it's fun and intimacy. There is another situation texting is common used when it' hard to make a call because of some kind of reason.Though texting a message would take some time but I think it's worthy of it. We all enjoy it. Right? my pal.

I prefer calling and talking. If someone texts me, I will text them back, but if I am in a place that I can't talk or hear, my phone is on silent and I will call whoever called back when I am in a place where I can talk and hear.

Definitely I prefer to talk. Text is something i only use when i know that the person I want to get in touch with won't answer the call. I prefer to call and solve the issue in a minute rather than spending 3 or 4 minutes writing a text message. Plus i hate the pseudo texting language that specially young people is inventing. what can i say....i'm a traditional when it comes to this, lol

I usually prefer texting. When I call someone they might not answer the phone the first time or the second time, and then I have to keeping on calling them. When I text them, they can answer whenever they have time, and I think that texting is easier and more convenient. But sometimes I prefer to call, it depends on the situation. If I want to chat, I will call the person and if I just want to ask a quick question, I often prefer texting.

i prefer for calling, bcoz in that oly we can see the reaction of the person on the other end,in the text they may take in a wrong sense so they r is a chance for it to deliver in wrong sense...so calling is better according to me

I prefer to talk on the phone rather than text. I think that txting is so impersonal. I would rather hear a human voice that those beeping sounds that tells me that I have a message on my phone. Yeah, texting is a lot cheaper but I like to keep in touch with my friends and family members in a more personal way so I call them when I have something to say to them. I only use txt messaging when I absolutely have to.

i prefer calling if i am using unlimited calls, its easy to communicate with my friends through talk. but for now, i always use unlimited text, i don't have enough fund to afford unlimited calls. but oh well, my friend of mine, do always call me. i always call her too. but in a limited time only. happy mylotting!

for me!.. text is better coz,you can save your money and load..... than call!.. but when it comes in important circumstanses,,, i prefer to call than to text,,, for he/she can easily understand what i mean,, coz in texting you can't know that,,,example(that person is angry or not)

Personally I enjoy texting someone better. I am not much of a talker so it is easier for me. However, like you, if I'd be talking for awhile, I'd call or have said person call me.

I prefer to text. Texting let's me be in control of the communication. I can text when I want to and I can respond at my convenience without playing phone tag!

It really just depends on who the person is and what they want to talk to me about. Most people I would just rather text, as it is quick and easy to do. There are a few peoplethat I would rather talk to on the one. Talking is more meaningful and it is easier to tell what the person is thinking and feeling when actually talking. I like to have more serious conversations with people on the phone or in person, not through text messages.

i prefer talking instead of texting, because im very slow on texting and i dont have the plan. at the same time talking will provide a better and clear answer.

Texting mostly. I find myself texting more. My younger sister is still in college and has a part time office job so it's easier to be in contact with her periodically throughout the day rather than longer periods. It's just easier too. But I also atribute it to the fact that I'm not a real people person...I mean I'm a little shy in person and don't like talking to people over the phone. DOn't get me wrong I'll do it if I have to but if I don't well then I won't.
