Exactly. It's the classic "Ford vs Chevy" question, which will never be answered, but will keep being asked.
Ya, those are flip phones. I kept my flip phone until I couldn't stand it any more. You have to press a "number" button at least once, most of the time 2 or 3 times in order to enter one letter. Morse code at 20-25 WPM will beat it every time.
Now I have an Android and a bluetooth full sized keyboard. I would beat 20-25 WPM morse code now. Easily.

Jennifer or Bailey?
