SMS or Instant Messaging or Calling only?

What would you prefer to do?

I hate calling people because I'm introverted but I don't mind SMS or IM. I prefer iMessage because of its features but I really don't care in the end.

I'm actually the same way. If it has to be verbal communication, then I'll gladly go that route. When I was still working, I had a couple of job coaches who preferred that you texted rather than called them if you were calling in for any reason

In order of preference: Instant messaging > SMS > Calling.

With most people, I only use instant messaging. I only really use SMS with my girlfriend, and I hardly call people at all.

Calls for real/important conversations.

I use Telegram with my family and Discord with most of my friends.

SMS is pretty awful IMO, but most people I "associate" use it most.

I hate phone calls. I don't mind SMS as much, but I greatly prefer instant messaging.

I mostly text message because I don't like to do voice calls. I never know what to say! A lot of family prefer to stick with FB messenger though and sometimes it's even faster than by text so that's okay.

Call if it is urgent, SMS if there is no internet, otherwise it's always IM because it tends to be quicker and easier to track if messages have been sent/received/read

I miss MSN Messenger and yahoo messenger for these reasons. If you sent a message, it'll let you know if someone has so much as looked at it yet. This is also why I like smartphones as well.
