Hey all. I have a Samsung Fascinate, and I love the texting of how it is bubbly chat like iphone and not like a non-smartphone that has "messages". Because of how much I text, I like this. Are there any phones out there than dont have the message format, but the smartphone chat format that arent smartphones?

The question is quite confusing, so sorry if I answer it incorrectly. Basically you are wondering if there are a lot of phones that have the bubble format for texting?

With any Android device you can download either Handcent SMS, or GO SMS. Both of these apps are highly customizable, and allow you to change the theme to an iPhone style, or bubble format.

Hopefully I was able to answer your question, If I was way off feel free to reiterate.

Thanks! Can you give me a few examples? And yes sorry my question was confusing but I am looking for a dumbphone that has the threaded feel! For example, if I get 3 messages in a row now from one person...

i.e.

Hey!! How ate you!
Are**
autocorrect

My phone just vibrates and the 3 messages appear in a row on the screen. Where as traditional dumbphones would have.

NEW MESSAGE
Hey!! How ate you!
NEW MESSAGE
Are**
NEW MESSAGE*
Auto Correct. I like the threaded continuity of the smart phones but due to some recent decisions, I need that 30 bucks a month to spend else where, so I would like a dumbphone that has the threaded feel.
