    I think the best would be to just work it in, in a conversation. Just not in a rude way, maybe saying that if it is not to much trouble i do prefer calling instead of texting.

    lots of people would rather call than text people.. what about saying something about how you feel about talking to this person but then saying you'd rather that person call you instead of texting, then you can hear that persons voice. smile hope this helps x

    Talk to her personally and tell her that you prefer her calling you than sending you test messages. Then give her your telephone number just to remind her that you have one.

    the best is to text her that wheras you do not mind text messaging when there is just information to be conveyed you really like the warmth of her voice and could you please call her instead of texting and would she like to do the same.
