Not sure that my phone has ever gone all day without somebody calling!  And once in a while, I'd have been happier if it hadn't rung!

The texting fits into the schedule much easier and is usually a non-emergency whereas the ringing phone seems to signal trouble is coming.

If you look up or around when out and about, people are walking around looking down, hands chest high with fingers flying each one in another world. If you would have said 200 years ago that this would come, no one could imagine it. Here we are and it is just the beginning of these worlds too

I prefer a text or email reply to my phone call but I always leave my number anyway. Easier to copy and paste their response into my calendar or email back to the client. It's so much better especially if I'm already making another outgoing call.
