Top Verizon Texting Phones 2016
For Phonerated's list of the top texting phones from Verizon for 2016, we've chosen to include only models which have physical QWERTY keyboards (similar to a computer), primarily because some people think that they are more convenient and quicker to use if you're typing an urgent message compared with touchscreen phones. Most of these texting phones also qualify as smartphones and business phones.
Apart from the keyboard requirement, however, it's all fair game for this list: The texting phone rankings provided below were determined by online review scores of each model.
