    Web browsing on dumb phones

    I currently have the LG Bliss, which is a really good phone for me. I don't need smart phone capabilities beyond e-mail and internet (facebook, weather, ebay, howard forums, etc).

    If the Bliss (and other premium dumb phones) become obsolete, is web browsing through the EE application on phones like Mystique, Wine II, Crush, as good of experience? What're the differences with a built-in browser?

    Also, do you think US Cellular will always offer the $20 premium phones or are they starting to phase into $30 smart phones and dumb phones only?

    Won't get rid of prem phones. Should stay the $19.95.

    Web browsing on a dumb phone is almost the same as your Bliss. A little different, but once you use it for a week or two, you get very familiar with it.

    No carrier will ever get rid of dumb phones. If they do, will loose a lot of business. Plenty of people want the basic phones.

    Browsing on my LG mystique is kinda good (WHEN I DONT GET A HTML ERROR AND HAVE TO CLICK ON SOMETHING 15 TIMES TO GET IT TO LOAD THE PAGE) but the browsing on the Motorola RAZR VE20 was great very fast and never had a problem
