Maybe, but it can still be too much dialog, leading to too much back and forth over little stuff. Damned if you do.....or don't.You are using it wrong then. A phone call is disruptive. You have to stop and talk. A text is something that you get when you have time. You don't have to look at it immediately.
Set up ring tones for the texts that you want to look at when they come in. The others you get when you have time.
I've told my family if you text me I assume it's not a priority. If you call me it will be taken as a priority. Don't text me if the house is on fire. And don't call me to tell me dinner was changed from hot dogs to spaghetti.
