With cell phones and Skype I think we have both options. I prefer hearing their voice and many things become clearer with the sound of the voice. Texting is okay for short notes but I prefer the phone. I really think it is more personal. Now, how do we get that special person to call us instead of emailing all the time?

yes texting is ok for short notes but then caling someone is still better..but the fact that here in our country, almost everyone here are just texting each other, in some way or another, we manage to convey our messages using text..maybe its just a matter of being used to text messages.......calling here is getting cheaper as well......emailing than calling? well here in our country, the comparison of owning a computer with internet access and a cellphone is too obvious....almost all people here have their own cellphones but don't have computers...so, calling is the practical way of communicating to your special person than emailing.....

i definitely agree with the previous post. and it's sometimes unreliable whether your SMS will be received. sigh. i was always using SMS when i was college but i grew tired of it. it's a lot easier and convenient if i just call. on the other hand, using sms is useful when you have to have a record of your conversation.

Texting is always cheaper - but it's a lot easier to understand when you're talking to the person, unless you just plan on saying "hi" or "how was your day" and thats it.
