What do you prefer - A call or sending a SMS?

Post  Jani on Tue Aug 26, 2008 7:34 pm

In Pakistan, calls are a little bit expensive and comparing to them sms are very cheap. We prefer communicating via sms instead of calls.

But I have heard that in USA people just make a call and communicate, they don't like typing sms on such a small mobile.

what about you?

I'd prefer sending SMS's, because in sweden for example we have this thing called Comviq, and if someone else has comviq you can send free sms's, so yeah i hate calling people just to say that extra cent or whatever. But also calling is pretty cheap aswell, but i believe its faster to just call someone instead of spending the extra 5 minutes to sms.

If you prefer sending sms then you must visit my site www.smsbucket.com, you will find lots of mobile sms collection there.

Would you like to share what that COMVIQ thing actually is?

is it some kind of package that mobile network operator provides?

I prefer to talking to people over the phone but sometimes it's a hassle in certain situations and it's better to just send a text message so the person on the other end can read it when they have time and send you text back. That way people aren't playing phone tag all the time and racking up missed calls.

personally i prefer talking because sms is so unpredictable and honestly you wait forever for a reply unless they are the kinda person who checks their phone every 2 minutes Razz
besides that if you talk fast you can actually say more in a phone call however sms is sometimes good if im busy... depends what im doing really... txt flirting is fun Razz

I'd rather just send an SMS, in some situations it's awkward to talk on the phone or sometimes maybe you just don't feel like it or need more thought before going ahead and acting so quickly to spew something out of your mouth. I can handle talking on the phone, but SMS is a very good alternative method.

I rather call, instead of sending SMS. Most of the times I am just not in the mood to write a text message on the phone. I prefer to call and say what I want to say. I am everything but not an SMS fan.

It would be cheaper to send and SMS, rather than calling... but the difference is not that high.

Depends on how much I have to say. I usually call because SMS'ing takes a while and bad habits from the computer carry on...such as never shuting the hell up.

However, like Craig said, sometimes calling is a bit awkward.

That is according to the situation and our need. If its a simple message that have to be send, then i prefer the sms, else i prefer to cal and talk to him. Else it will be better to cal. And some times it will be better to send sms and not talk with some people some time. Cool

Call or SMS

Post  kunal on Sat Aug 30, 2008 2:44 pm

I prefer call over SMS. I have taken a plan on which Local calls are cheaper than Local SMS. Also it is very irritating to send SMS's to people from my cells useless keypad. It takes only 10 seconds to speak whatever you have sent in an SMS. Also I prefer talking to people rather than conversing through SMS's. But sometimes, when I am in a meeting, when I cant attend calls, SMSing is the only option if I want to deliver an urgent message.
