One should not take oath except in the name of Allah. It is not allowed to take oath in one’s own name. You should do taubah. When your friend is a good one then why did you stop talking to him. However, if both of you have some differences you should remove them and start talking to each other. You should avoid sending unnecessary messages on mobile.

Allah knows Best!
