    I haven't heard from you so long

    Which sentence is correct?

    I havent' heard from you so long.

    I haven't heard from you for so long.

    Is 'for' necessary? Is 'for' it necessary in similar sentences with the verb 'write'?

    Thank you for replies .

    Yes, "for" is necessary.

    In BrE, we also say "I haven't heard from you in​ so long".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
