Cell Phone recommendation please
 
My son is 20 and is due for a new phone. He does a fair amount of texting but doesn't need a blackberry or internet phone. What's a good phone on the Verizon network that kids like these days? I want to get it for him for Christmas. It should be fairly rugged and have a camera. Like I said, no internet or email needed. If he wants that he can get one himself.

Get him an HTC Eris. He will love it.

The iPhone doesn't work on the Verizon network, which is what the OP asked for.

He can get an internet phone when he pays for the data. While I pay it's voiuce and text only.

The enV3 is a good option. Just got one and should be free after rebate unless that deal expired. It has a qwerty keyboard which makes texting much easier. The camera on it is decent with 3MP and control over white balance, etc. Also takes microSD cards up to 16GB. I can't vouch for how rugged it is.
