We have known that the release of the LG Decoy VX8610 is right around the corner (July 16), but the first signs of the phone have finally made an appearance on Verizon's Testman site. It confirms that the price will be $179 on a 2 year contract after $50 rebate.

The most interesting feature of the Decoy is that it is a slider style phone with a built-in Bluetooth earpiece that is detachable from the back. Other features include a 2MP camera, 2.2" QVGA display, WAP browser, VZ Navigator, microUSB data port, and support for microSDHC memory cards up to 8GB in size.

*UPDATE* Verizon has now posted the Decoy's Interactive Manual.

No you don't. The testman site is testman.verizonwireless.com. I think you're referring to infomanager, which you do have to be employed by VZW to view.

We currently do not have service for zip code 99999. If you would like to choose a location by a different zip code please enter it now, or choose a location by city/state. You can also use Coverage Locator to view Verizon Wireless coverage for your area.

if you lose your BT, they sell a cover for the hole that it goes into.

I am being told by LG that the bluetooth is one of their best design so far and did not stop at any expense when building it....something about making sure that the main feature of the phone would perform extremely well. Can 't wait to get it!.....always misplace my current bluetooth

Playing with the device now unlocked BT, same UI as the motorola 755(the new UI), the headset sucks, but the cove ryou cna put over the spt is almost flush with the device, so it is negligable. and it is not that light silver, it's a very dark silver, almost black, and the back is blue. but as somebody else pointed out, it is like looking atthe hunchback of verizon when the headset is in the back of the device. I would just ditch it, clip on the cover and be done.

There is a dummy phone listed for sale on ebay. At least we can see what it looks like!
