If you're a Cricket customer and love to text, the Samsung Comment just might be the phone for you.

Samsung Comment
The Samsung Comment for Cricket Wireless Samsung

Today, Cricket announced the immediate availability of the Samsung Comment, a QWERTY-equipped handset for messaging fiends.

The device features a 2.4-inch QVGA display, a 1.3-megapixel camera, threaded text messaging, and stereo Bluetooth. In addition, the Comment also has a mobile Web browser, an MP3 player, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and comes preloaded with several carrier services, including Cricket Navigator and MyBackup.

The Samsung Comment costs $89.99, but Cricket does not require you to sign a contract. Plans start at $35 for unlimited talk and text and go up to $45 for unlimited talk, text (domestic and international), picture messages, Web browsing, 411 information, and navigation.
