Hello well, this question may sound stupid at the beginning but when you think about it you get my point. except from the cost of the phone calls some people prefer to txt their friends due to their shyness. but which group you think you are in do you feel more comfrotable to call someone or you just prefer to txt them? best regard

It would depend on what I needed. Do I need to talk to this person or just get certain information to same? Do I have time to talk? All these things work into whether I need to call or text.

*If finances aren't a big issue......CALL *If the person is close to me and I'm comfortable telling him or her anything I wanted to tell him.......I prefer CALL *If I have inquiries with formal nature....I prefer TEXT. I kind of get shy around people of authority so I tend to be unable to throw the questions that I was previosly thinking of *If I'm quarreling someone.....TEXT :-D *If I was planning to borrow money....TEXT :-D *If I was making up alibis.....TEXT :-D *If I'm in a hurry and in a total adrenalin rush....CALL *If I'm greeting someone who isn't close to me and I don't want to sound so chirpy...."TEXT" I think I've said a lot

I am not really the type of person to talk on the phone. I prefer to text if I can. I will call my parents or my boyfriend when I have to but other then that I text as much as possible. It is so much cheaper I pay 10 bucks unlimited for texting on my cell phone.

id rather text someone to feel the situation out first. i am almost furious when someone calls me and im in the middle of something. if someone texts me though its cool cuz then i can just call them back when im through with what im doing and have time to sit around on the phone.

Sometimes I really enjoy a good phone conversation with a friend. But, if I need to communicate with someone who I'm not quite as comfortable with, then I really prefer to just text them. I also prefer texting if I just need to ask someone a question or two, and I don't really want to spend 10 minutes on the phone. Texting is also perfect for communicating when you can't actually make a phone call...like in church or in class. haha

if i have something really very delicate to say, mostly, i prefer texting because of my bashfulness, i don't know, i'm just not that outspoken person and yeah, it would be cheaper if it's a text, lol. but that's not my primary reason. like i said, i tend to be shy when there's really something to talk about. i guess i just need more confidence

It just depends on the situation....i love texting. I have started classifying myself asa the text quueen in my family. But i think that i text more than i call people a lot of times though. Texting is more fun if you ask me, and just saves you the hassle a lot of times, when you need to know something and don't really have the courage to talk face to face, or over the phone.
