I think I have used the text part once in like 8 years. It is just to time consuming on my part. If someone texts me than I will respond but that is about it.

phone booth - this is a phone booth in London, England when we were on our trip
I am the same way. I think the texting is time consuming as well, but I will respond if someone write me.

I mostly used to text messages with my friends when I have to tell them something. IF I am in a bus I don'r used to attend the calls I just used to reject those calls and message them about the matter. The surroundings depends on how to act the calls. I love messaging and I am ready with SMS rate cutters at all the time.

It depends on the services, which one is cheaper. So, I would like to use messages better than to call anyone because it is far cheaper than to call here.

maybe send message..because the price of fee for sending message is very cheaper than call or talk in the phone.. price is the biggest reason i think

It all depends on how fast I want my message delivered. Usually when it is quite important, I call and when I just wanted some things that I can afford to wait a while for a response then I will just text. But often, I do more of the calling rather than texting.

I prefered Calling because txting takes time and sometimes these txt are being misunderstood by the receipient. In Philippines unlimited calls are offered by all network providers.

I prefer text messaging because it's cheap here in our country. Most Filipinos use text messaging. But if I have a very important thing to say to other person, I prefer to talk. The communication is much easier. Happy mylotting!

I like both--it depends on the situation. For example, texting is easier if I'm watching TV, or doing something on the internet. At the same time, talking on the phone is generally faster than texting and it feels more personal.

I prefer to make text messages than to talk. But when it's a very important conversation, I'd rather choose to make a call.

I prefer to talk, because I'm sure that the person receives my message and another reason is that it takes me a lot of time to type one word in that little keyboard[:)].

I prefer talking to the phone, its a lot easier and I think the flow of conversation is clearer, but then sending text message is a lot cheaper. :-D

There are times when you cant express your feeling to other person while talking but the sms does your work in seconds without any fear, so it depends on the situation.
