I hate calls most of the time. They yank me out of whatever I'm working on, take way too long, and have a terrible signal-to-noise ratio. I'd say for every minute on the phone, I get about 5-10 seconds worth of useful information.

E-mails or other forms of text are much better... They don't interrupt my flow state, they can be glanced at and ignored if they're not useful, and any unhelpful bits can be quickly skimmed over.

Granted, there are exceptions on both sides... Some calls are useful, and some-- most e-mails are spam.
Proud to have finally moved to the A-Ark. Which one are you in?
Author of the Guardians Saga (Sci-Fi/Fantasy novels)
