I wasn’t exactly sure what a quick messaging phone was so I had to read a bit more about the new Pantech Vybe and it basically a phone that’s all about social media and messaging, which I guess is all well and good. The new Vybe is available today on AT&T for $29.99 with new two year contract. The phone runs a proprietary operating system by Pantech, but it does have a 3.2 inch touch screen and slide out keyboard. It seems to be a fairly basic phone made for those who care more about social media and messaging and a low price. More details below for you..
