Is less signal strength required for sending/receiving texts versus voice calls?

I find myself in those 1/2-bar situations a lot, where the phone thinks it can make a call but cant - would there be better luck of sending/receiving texts then? I mostly encounter this in hiking/backpacking situations where im trying to check-in, if that matters. (my work pays for a phone with texting disabled so I cant just test)
