    Hello,

    Napisać do kogoś
    Napisać do kogoś wiadomość
    Wysłać komuś wiadomość

    With the first one being the most common one.

    Ah, thank you. Is it clear that when I say "napisze wiadomosc" I mean on the phone, or do you sometimes add "napisac wiadomosc przez telefon?

    You don't need to add 'przez telefon', it would even be unnatural. I guess one would say "Napiszę ci na Whatsappie' or "Wyslę ci SMSa"

    I wouldn't even think about adding 'przez telefon', but normally I'd add if it's on Facebook, Whatsapp or something else, e.g.: 'Napisać do kogoś na Facebooku/Whatsappie/Instagramie'

    if it's just a regular text message it'll be 'SMS' (short message service), e.g.: 'Wysłać komuś SMS'
