The Samsung Omnia crushes this phone..
too bad the Samsung Omnia is GSM-as in EUROPE, and this is the CDMA Prada
Finally, a phone that might be worth using my New Every 2 credit for.
Will be Verizon's best phone. Period.
Will this be a a smartphone?
is this going to b more than $240
No. It will Not be a smartphone!
video? what video?
nvm, i saw it on hofo
sorry, i couldnt find the video is it on the first page off the link?
I am so getting this
i hate LG and i still like this phone
And yet another copy of the iphone
Last i know the date is a version of the prada and the prada has been out way before the iphone was probably even though of.

Actually the Dare is a step above the Prada and even has some features in common with the Viewty, which is the Prada's successor.

Yes, the LG Prada was released 6 months before the iphone.....Europe release mostly
Apple fanboys need to stop wildly acusing ever freaking phone with a touch screen of being a copy. Drop it, its old. FYI the dare is a varient of the LG prada which came out long before the iphone, won lots of design awards, then sued apple for copying THEM. So, in a way, it looks like the iphone is yet another Dare copy haha

nice phone. just wished the instinct was available for verizon too.
this will be better than the Instinct

IMHO, the dare has one up with the camera's megapixel but the Instinct uses it's camera to scroll through webpages.. Either way, if a camera is under 5MP.. doesn't have Carl-Zeiss Optics.. and doesn't have a decent zoom.. It doesn't impress me.
OH YES OH YES OH YES OH YES
I'm glad the I-phone didn't come out for VZW, then i would of been stuck with a madd expensive phone that doesnt even have a camera like this one, it was WORTH WAITING FOR....
Thats true. The iPhone was actually supposed to come out on Verizon but they could not agree so they turned to AT&T. Anyways, the Dare looks sexy.
I work for verizon and got to play with the dare and let me tell you i think by far this phone is better than the iphone. it does the same thing with the pictures when you put it on its side and also when you are either surfing the web or writting a text message. the touch interface i thought was a lot smoother than the voyager which is a plus. and the picture quality was amazing. definately looking forward to getting this phone when it launches

You're referring to the phone's accelerometer, which is, in fact, the same thing used in the iPhone.
Did it have threaded txt's?

does this phone have voice recognition so you only have to say the words then it puts it to text in messaging
Only thing I like better about the iphone is that the screen is bigger... I'll put that aside for a better network and get this phone instead. It still looks hott
Is it just me or does the interface look a little cheap?
i think it looks great and sleek
where is the vid on the forums?
Up at the top. Its working now.

Im still thinking I like my xv6900 better....
49. Esquire0399 (Posts: 53; Member since: 09 Apr 2008)
They're not comparable devices. The 6900 is a smartphone, whereas rhe Dare is not. They aren't in the same league.
Has anyone on here actually played with this gem yet? I need to know if this is as good as everyone is saying. Ive been hearing that the new blackberry thunder will be available september. And now for $9.99 more a month, this phone could receive work emails. Decisions decisions...
this device is going to make me feel complete again!!!! lol.... In 2004-2005 i spoiled my self and bought a Sony Ericsson S710a phone, to me this was the best phone out there at the time cause it had MP3 player, removable memory stick, a digital camera feel w/flash , plus awesome sound quality when playing music.... ...eventually i kept gettin so frustrated with not having service that i broke the phone, but liked the phone so much that i bought another one spending around $750 between both phones (one of them i bought from Europe S700i)...eventually this one ended up broken as well because it would not get service whats so ever and i was constantly frustrated with the phone....(i know i know i need anger managment lol) but regardless i am now a very very happy VZW customer (especially since this baby is coming out) and just for those of you who are wondering, i have broken VZW phones but it was due to a crazy ex that i had haha and me being drunk while arguing with her

can anyone please tell me if the interface going to be glass or plastic...thats the number one thing i didnt like about the LG voyager. the user interface was made of cheap plastic. does anyone know? also will it have a 3.5mm jack or 2.5mm jack? RESPONSE APPRECIATED!
44. The Zune Lune (Posts: 41; Member since: 09 Apr 2008)
Yes 3.5 mm jack The UI is betterand does not feel as cheap as the Voyager.

This phone does look nice, dont get me wrong. Personally, I have never like the iphone at all. It has always been the ugliest touch device I have seen, and you cant do anything with it. I have the HTC Touch if that tells you anything, it is amazing and you can change every aspect of the phone. On the other hand, this phone looks really nice as well, but I have a feeling it is going feel cheap and made purely out of plastic. The LG Dare is the exact same phone as the LG VU, and that is nice but feels very cheap and not good at all... Sorry, I love the way the VU looks, but it feels like a toy.
actually it seems the only thing the vu and dare have in common is the name and they are both touch screens. If you read around people that have tested it say it is built very good, not cheaply. so before making any comments about how the phone is built you better wait til it comes out to judge that aspect. plus the iphone and htc touch are both smartphones, so i hope you could have a little more customization on them, but hopefully the dare won't be limited to the usual verizon crap.
the phone will have a 3.5mm jack, and as far as the interface goes, its still a pressure sensitive screen like the voyager, only not as cheap...if that makes any sense.
Is the interface glass or plastic?
There's no such thing as a "glass or plastic interface". It is the SCREEN that would be glass or plastic. The Dare's screen is plastic, but higher quality than the Voyager.
46. The Zune Lune (Posts: 41; Member since: 09 Apr 2008)
Go try the LG Vu at At&t - that is how the screen should feel - very slick.
Why would anyone want glass as it can break easier than plastic
Glass screens are "capacitive" and hence, usually more responsive.

Except in the case of the Glyde, which is an absolute disaster.
The i-phone is cool but i think the dare will be so much better. Not only the phone who wants to pay 800 for a phone that you have to send away if it breaks and cant get insurance on it. ATT really f'd up there. To bad for all the suckers that buy and loose it or have it stolen. Verizon will offer the insurance and instore technicians. 50 dollar deductable come on why complain.

It's cool if you don't mind it catching your bag on fire because the battery is too hot.
What have we told you about saying stupid things? Yes, that they make you sound stupid. Stop it.
Actually as much as i want to agree with you, Apple has update the firmware for both the I phone and their Ipods.....the firmware allows the devices to not hold a charge and refuse a charge, only if reported stolen
I've been looking forward to this phone for a while now! I get a new phone in august, and I'm DYING to trade in my enV after 2 years of abuse. Does anyone have any idea [even a guess] at how much the phone will cost though? =/ That'll probably be the main concern with me
Prob no more and 200 so it can compete with iphone 2
3.55 mm jack, user interface screen will be the same material as the voyager, I have it right now and it blows away the WANNA BE PRADE that att calls an Iphone...it is lighter , thinner, sexier and better with touch.....and I can get insurance and a year warranty with it...it will be able to sync to outlook for email, calendar and appointments , so yes it is a PDA/smartphone....the camera is SEXY and the phone will be great.....until the Blackberry Thunder comes out.. sorry ATT, your day in the sun is over....Verizon now has the most subscribers, the best network and the best phone selection.
Wait, so is it a smatphone? Wouldn't they sell it to the regular crowd so it competes with the iPhone, and Vu? Also, does this have MobileTV and a full HTML browser?
