    The support for it is well established because of its clear market lead, the appstore is absolutely huge and the capacitive touch screen is frankly fantastic.

    I really dont know how you guys have managed to persuade the OP who btw wants a phone which makes messaging easier to dash out the sort of cash to buy an Iphone 4, HTC desire or any of that technological rubbish that will soon become old.

    Blackberry is an option for the OP because it has a QWERTY keyboard, Iphone 4 has a QWERTY keyboard but it is touchscreen and far more difficult to get used to then the small QWERTY keyboard on a BB. Same logic goes for HTC Desire.

    The man doesn't need an Iphone 4 to make his texting life easier, what's the difference between Iphone 2g and Iphone 4 in terms of texting? No need to dish out bloody £399 for a phone with features the OP won't ever need.

    I must say, most of you students give out stupid advice to people.

    I'm guessing you're behind the times in the mobile world, since you clearly haven't noticed that the Nexus S has been released lol, Still BB Torch/9780 is on the list, in innovation/market focused terms since they satisfy a requirement for some people of needing a QWERTY keyboard

    It has been released. I don't think even the top of the line Blackberrys can hold up to the ones I mentioned, to me their the best smartphones on the market.

    Touchscreen vs. QWERTY is personal preference. Besides, if he just wants texting capability does he need a smartphone at all? Why not just get a high-end featurephone?

    I disagree, my bf has always had problems with small keys on phones, but because the bb keyboards are ergonomically designed he's had no problems texting on one.

    I've got a blackberry 8900 on a tmobile contract, it's decent and reliable in terms of texting and everything else you'd expect a smartphone to have, although it's become too 'bait'. Everyone's got one, I've got a friend who's in their last year of primary teaching, she's set in a school and even the children in years 5-6 have a blackberry...madness (bear in mind that it was a private catholic school)

    Although there are great deals on Blackberry nowadays, My contract is:
    100 mins to any network, unlimited calls to tmobile users, unlimited texts, unlimited internet all for £20 a month, sexytime

    yay ego.
