Do any of the LTE basic phones have the talk to text feature?

Do any of the LTE basic phones have the talk to text feature? I really want to stick with a basic phone. But after 10 years with Verizon, my reception has suddenly become horrible where I live this summer. Among other things, I was told it may be due to having a 3G phone. So looking at the new 4G phones. But none of them have QWERTY, so trying to figure out what options I have for texting.

I did go to an actual store and there was only one basic LTE phone on display. And the staff knew virtually nothing about it. I knew more about it than they did. I would LOVE to go to a store to see all 3 LTE devices in person. And to have staff that can help me, rather than trying to talk me into a smart phone.

LOOLY70, we appreciate you taking the opportunity to visit a store location and check out the devices we have to offer. At this time, we've reviewed the user manual for all three of the current LTE basic phones. All three models confirm that they have voice command capabilities; however it's not specific enough to mention the talk to text feature.

 

We've sent feedback to the manufacturers to help us clarify this information. In the meantime, we would like to point out that we do offer a 14-day guarantee with all new purchases. If the phone isn't suitable to your standards, you're always welcome to return/exchange the device during the first 14 days. http://vz.to/2geemvb
