I never text, in fact I have my current ph is blocked from receiving text's. I don't download or listen to music or videos. I have never used a cell ph camera, but think it might be nice to have, just incase. I would use the blue-tooth feature in my car. Phone calls & voice mails are the main reason I have a cell. My contract is w/ Telus & with my current ph I never seem to have reception problems. It's an even older model Samsung ph., but is un-fixable due to water damage.
