I want a phone that does these 2 things extremely well. High quality audio and texting technology.

1. Superior high quality audio. That includes a microphone, and a dynamic audio range speaker. As well as the means to transfer the voice data effectively.


2. Advanced texting program. I want the software to make sense, user tested. I don't want any delays, I want the backspace button to work immediately, I don't want my messages accidentally sending either. I don't want a full qwerty keyboard either. I can text just as fast with the numeral keyboard, with the auto-fill key strokes as well as saving the word to the phones dictionary.

Other important basics: Long battery life, which should be easily attainable with the stripped basic/advanced features. (some say bluetooth and camera are now basic features). Phone should be durable, buttons not easily broken, screen not easily scratched, easy to remove battery and sim card.


That's it! I don't want internet, bluetooth, camera, voice record or commands, usb port, flashlight, etc - IF: it interferes with the first 2 things I want.

I think a key problem with this is that it is 'few and far in-between' with people who would want this. Maybe demand isn't high enough.

Do you agree or disagree? Would you use this phone?

Your 1st problem is including text capability. Totally useless IMO. As for the audio quality, I'm told that it simply can't be done with today's technology, at least not in a practical size-the physical size of the speaker prohibits it.

So my guess, primarily due to my 1st statement, is that while most people would like to limit the feature set you won't get enough of them to agree on how to limit it to get sufficient demand for any particular phone with a limited feature set.

Not to mention that CDMA doesn't use SIM cards so by requesting an easily removable SIM card you're eliminating half the providers in the US. (More or less, haven't actually checked. They all claim '90%' coverage but I know of too many places where, despite the marketing, you're basically limited to a single provider. It could be coincidence, but the ones I do know of all seem to be CDMA.)

Now if you can design a phone where the buyer can choose which features they want then you might have something.

Your expectations for audio quality is a bit unrealistic. Although, your demands for texting are quite fair. Check out the phones below.

1. Nokia 5130 T-Mobile - This phone perfectly fits your bill.

2. Nokia 2320 AT&T: Awesome phone for texting, but doesn't have an MP3 player. Audio is great.

Although people bash Nokia a lot, it's the best brand to fulfill your specifications. :)

I appreciate the responses. I am looking into the Nokia 2320 gophone. (way cheap on auction sites lol)

I should have clarified that a SIM card slot was not neccessary, it just happens that right now I do use a sim card. I mainly had some bad experiances with a phone, in which the back case was difficult and needs a tool to take it off. That is an extreme, but it should be easy to take off the back case.
