    Most comfortable phone for emails?

    I'm looking for a phone which can be both tiny and perfect for emails. I need to be in my outlook almost 24/7, I have it installed in my office PC, home computer, Laptop and in my Nokia E71 - but the Nokia is not perfect for that.

    Which phone is the best for a basic email use? Some people tell me its the iPhone, some prefer the Blackberry, some tell me that its actually my nokia (or the E72) - but the buttons are just way too small for me.

    What do you think?

    Thanks for your help.

    Several phones will meet those requirements. It all depends on individual. I have the iphone4, BB curve, Nokia E63, and they all work well. For typing, I prefer the BB though.

    I would also have to say BB for email. If you could list your provider, I am sure that someone could help you narrow it down to a model.

    The Blackberry just works. Go with the 9700 Bold2 or the 9300 Curve when that is available.

    Blackberry or Windows Mobile. Of the two, BB with a BB data plan would be my recommendation.

    BB Bold 9000 has the best physical keyboard ever put onto a mobile phone.

    Thanks, the iPhone is not reall an option for me, I don't like the touch screen. I was thinking about the Blackberry but the buttons are quite small too, am I wrong?

    Any other phones with larger buttons?

    The 9700 keys are probably some of the easiest to use keys out there on a smartphone. That device is probably your best bet, along with a BB data plan.

    Thank you for your replies.
    What about the HTC TyTN II P4550 comparing to the BB?

    You have to keep in mind the rest of the phone as well. Older WinMo is PAINFUL to use, vs Blackberry OS5 which is pretty simple and very reliable. The keys might be a bit larger, but it'll be a pain to do anything else on the device.

    Just wanted to update, I got the iPhone4 2 weeks ago and I'm VERY happy with it. I can't say that its perfect for emails but after getting used to it, it's more than fine. Thanks for your help.

    Yea the iPhone has probably the best email client i've seen. I'm just not fond of the keyboard. (I have an iPhone4)

    This has been my main complain with BB because I tend to hit multiple buttons at a time and so I opted for an iPhone instead. Turned out to be a good decision for me because I enjoy it a lot
