The advantage of Text is text messaging is the ability to be able to send a message to someone to ask them to call you later regarding something important. At the same time, it doesn’t interrupt them with a phone call. It allows them to respond back to you when it is most convenient to them.
The disadvantage of Text is sometimes you don’t receive all incoming messages from people. Often a personâˆ™s text messaging box will get so full with incoming and sent text messages. If the inbox gets too full then the person canâˆ™t receive anymore messages unless he or she deletes some of them.

Although advance testing could often identify technical trouble, the unexpected, spontaneous problem sometimes still arose minutes before or even during a videoconference.
