The LG Cosmos VN250 is by no means “out of this world” but it is a nice messaging phone for people who are looking for a budget device. The QVGA display paired along with the sliding QWERTY keyboard makes for composing and reading messages a breeze, and the call quality and signal reception are good too. The only thing that is missing is the music player, but if that is not important to you, we would recommend the LG Cosmos VN250 over the Samsung Intensity U450 and Motorola Rival A455, though the LG enV3 VX9200 is still the overall winner here.
