America is texting more. Are you?

In one of our recently updated We Help You Decide features, we broke down the best prepaid carriers for text messaging. Check that out for a longer reference. For a quick look, the following carriers have unlimited text messaging options:

Some of these come as part of plans — Straight Talk, Cricket, MetroPCS, and PlatinumTel most prominently — but most of them offer some kind of unlimited text messaging add-on. How long is it before all the other carriers catch on to the fastest-growing trend in wireless?]]>

    Not many have unlimited texting for those who don’t want to talk much but just text mostly and have talk as an occasional afterthought. Virgin, Att , Verizon prepaid, Page Plus and Kajeet give you that option more then the rest do.

    You also need to look at the network coverage when you are choosing. I have Straight Talk because I get unlimited talk, texts and data for only $45 per month on Verizon’s network nationwide. Which, by the way, has the best nationwide coverage and the least dropped calls of all carriers. There are also really great phones like the Samsung R451c with full slide out qwerty keyboard for typing really fast texts.
