While the iPhone, Instinct and many other phones with touch screens offer you the ability to tweak the software to your specific sensitivity, the Quickfire doesn’t.
Pricing, Service Plans
With no-commitment pricing all the way up at $329.99, a two-year contract brings the Quickfire down to $179.99. An online discount of $150 further brings the cost down to $29.99.
The Quickfire is compatible with AT&T’s messaging plans that offer 200, 1,500 and unlimited texting for an additional monthly fee of $5, $15 and $20 respectively.
Customers on an AT&T FamilyTalk shared plan can pay $30 for unlimited messaging on all lines. The full About.com listing of all AT&T service plans currently on the market can be found here.
The Bottom Line
For a phone that sort of falls under the $100 price barrier (depending on how you interpret the value of AT&T’s unusual mail-in rebate situation), the Quickfire is a powerful messaging device for non-business users at an affordable cost.
