Since the caller is already on the phone, I prefer they leave a message.

However, if they choose to skip the call entirely, I'm perfectly happy receiving a text.

I do not expect a caller faced with the "leave message" prompt to hang up then text. But that is what many will do believing the agent will give priority to the text message response.

Do agents REWARD that action?
