The parties are, of course, free to disapply any of the methods set out here, or add any other ones that are not, by specifying in Part 5 of the Schedule. But, as the good folk of the National Westminster Bank plc would no doubt tell you, you shouldn't assume it is a good idea to communicate by any method that isn't specified here if you haven't specified it in the Schedule.
