    Text or call?

    Advertisements
    *wait for the poll*

    For normal, everyday conversation "hey, how was your day at work, hope everything is going good, etc", would you prefer to text or call?

    I prefer texting, all the time. With the kids, it's hard to talk on the phone.

    I prefer a phone call. Texting back and forth takes to much time and irritates me. Just make the call, get the conversation over and everyone get on with their life.

    With people I see often, text. With people I dont see often, phone. Like my mom and I call each other. Same with my best friend from home. But my friends here, in ohio, we text, since I see them 90% of my waking day.

    I need an "other" It depends on who I'm talking to. I call my family, but there are people I just mostly text too...totally depends on who I'm talking to.

    The majority of the time...text...although even after having my fancy smart phone for over a year, I'm still not used to the touch screen keyboard. So sometimes I'll call if I'm getting too annoyed with the keyboard.

    On my old phone, I had a slide-out keyboard...but never used it because I've memorized the letters that correspond with the numbers as well as how predictive text worked (aka...what words were predicted first)

    I text my brothers, DB, and mom (she LOVES to text), but I call my friends for phone updates.

    However, I love texting with my MSOS buddies as well!

    Depends on who it is. Since I have the kids phone conversation just doesn't. Texting is much more practical. That's what I prefer during the day.
