The Top 5 Cell Phones for Text Messaging

Thousands of cell phone users tend to let their thumbs do most of the talking, preferring to send a quick note rather than phoning someone up. After all, text messages cost less, and are less invasive than calling (you never know what someone is doing when you ring them up!), making it easy to understand why many people prefer them. So, if you are among these avid text messagers, and are looking for a new cell phone, you will want to check out this list of the best text messaging phones:

  1. The Blackberry Curve Smartphone 8520

    Customer reviews give the Blackberry Curve a five (out of five) star rating.

    Pros: The track-pad makes the screen easy to navigate. Also, although the keyboard’s keys are small, they are manageable. It easily fits in the palm of your hand, and has a built in dictionary, both of which make text messaging particularly comfortable. The battery charge on this model lasts longer than on previous generations of Blackberrys. It also has quality resolution for web browsing.

    Cons: The picture quality on the camera is not as good as other cameras in its class. This model does not have a track ball – if this was a feature of previous generations that you liked, this might bother you.

  2. Apple iPhone 4 – 32GB

    Customer reviews give the iPhone 4 a four-and-a-half star rating.

    Pros: The resolution and size of the screen are a dream. The camera doesn’t have anything directly to do with text messaging, but it has good resolution, and is an option that may help you choose the best phone for your needs. The battery lasts up to 24 hours a charge.

    Cons: Cell reception on the iPhone is not as good as on other models in its class, so there are more dropped calls than you would otherwise experience.

  3. RIM Research-In-Motion Blackberry Curve 8900

    Customer reviews give the RIM a three-and-a-half star rating.

    Pros: This Curve model has a sleeker and more solid look, design, and brighter screen resolution than past Curve models. It features Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.2 megapixel camera, a full HTML browser, and Bluetooth. Video resolution and playback is quite good, playing, rewinding, and fast forwarding without a skip or a hop. The keyboard is well reported on by text messaging users.

    Cons: The Curve 8900 doesn’t offer 3G, some of the new apps available don’t have all the bugs worked out of them yet, and some users report problems with the trackball after a year.
