I can understand how important it is to find the right device. You can view a side by side comparison on our Basic Phone models here https://www.verizonwireless.com/basic-phones/. You can also check the customers reviews to get impressions of any model listed. AlbertoR_VZW
The Cadence is a worthless piece of junk if you do any amount of texting. All messages sit in the same disorganized pile. There is no inbox, outbox, sent, etc. Its freekin maddening to manually search through every message you have received or sent just to find one. Much less functional than the perfectly good (and smaller) Gusto which Verizon is forcing me to abandon soon.
