4 Lame phones. Give me a break.
Check out the latest tech from the HTC release that occurred in London this week.
Verizon is making a fool of itself.
"Yesterday's technology today, Verizon Wireless..."
Can't they do better than this? Geesh...
I really thought I'd see something innovative considering all the hype. Maybe they have something else coming down the pike, but man, are they behind the eight-ball in terms of bringing tech to market.
AT&T is kicking their $#@#....
Whine... no pdas.
Wonder why their pda lineup is so lame?
the new i760 and 6800 are ancient, and haven't even been released yet!
Nice to see a touchscreen. Wonder how it will compare to the iphone?
Well unfortunatley only 2 of these phones I am looking forward to. The Voyager being #1 and the Venus. They are claiming the voyager is going to be the iphone killer but I will have to see for myself. The Pearl is sooo late..I dont understand why verizon does this all the time. Like someone else said they havent droped the i760 or the 6800 yet!? They might as well drop the tytnII but that will probably take another year or more. Juke is another music phone we dont need but I know other phones are coming out besides these so we will see.
These are just phones people, relax...I don't know why people have such a problem with carriers putting out new phones...what's wrong with that? Are they not supposed to put out new phones or what? Yeah, you may not like them, but no phone is going to be perfect, not even the iPhone, HTC Touch, Sidekick, Voyager or whatever. so just get over it.
I have been waiting for a PDA which is not heavy, cluncky and old news. The Q does not impress me. Their competitors are killing them. I am past my contract period, and I think I am going to try another carrier
I want to know why the competitors are killing verizon? Do you people want a phone that does cool things or a phone that gets good service. Because the last time i checked phones were made to talk on. And from my experience verizon has done a good job of keeping me happy with good reception. used to have sprint and they have to be the worst company out there
Hey Mike, How about you take your sorry ass to another carrier then, cause you'll be back to Verizon. Wake up and realize its not the phone, but the service you are getting and Verizon is the best
Probably 95% of people are content with a phone actually being just a phone. The people with the iphones or that alike are the only people who comment negatively on these things because they are so obsessed with themselves having the coolest product with useless features on the market. Accept the new products as a step forward and quit complaining that some company in the near future will have something better and more useful than your iphone.
You people complain too much. I have verizon and everytime I'm talking to my best friend who has sprint and at&t her calls are always dropping.. I have had all the other carriers except for t- mobile and verizons service is the best, I rarely 'drop a call. All this complaining is not that serious they are phones people if you don't like them don't get them!

Wow..once again the haters gather. Why say nothing at all if you got something to say. Look. These aren't the only phones to be released. These are just the phones that they know will truly sell. Trust the Venus, Voyager will outsell the i760 and 6800..if you think different you don't kno squat..the reality is that these are to get people excited bout their offerings. Verizon (as a business) needed to do this due to the fact that they've been under the bus for awhile. But look who's complaining. What you guys are boosted cuz of the TyTn II..whoopti whoo..as long as edge is running that device is as useless as dial up..and ya'll know it..just get over the fact that the phones are great and they will definitely make this holiday season a showdown of course between the iPhone vs Voyager/Venus...I think it's great. Finally, I can get a device with similar..not the same..qualities and not have to switch.. I personally tried the iPhone and it was tight..but it wasn't enough to make me leave my carrier..i talk to my friend on his iPhone all the time..and he ends up cussing and complaining due to dropped calls..so how cool is it...it's just a phone that a touchscreen..but unable to make calls and no 3G!! c'mon..it's like handing out Razr's again..look..the devices are coming out..they just didnt make a special release due to issues with the software..heck..who cares if Sprint let's it out early.. Sprint is a horrible company....and Tmobile..don't even go outside the city gates cuz your service is toast..c'mon folks..face it..nobody is perfect and we all know VZW ain't..but give it a break..it's not that SERIOUS!!!

Hmmm, lets see...LG proven top notch phone manufacturer vs. apple that makes computers that 1/10 of the earths population buys; Voyager 8gb expandable memory vs. apples 8 gb internal that is really only 6.5 because of the onboard software; voyager changeable battery vs. apples internal sorry its messed up, but I will have to take your phone for 3 weeks to fix it battery; voyagers high speed internet vs. apples not; voyagers push wireless sync email vs. apples hey lets log in everytime like i do at home email; voyagers phone warranty vs. apples oops, that will be $800 more dollars please; voyagers live t.v. capability vs. apples nothing; hey didnt apple have to lower the price of the i-phone already because they sold 350,000 less units than projected and already drop the 4gb? voyagers downloadable music store vs. apples nothing again...hmm, what were you debating about again? use your brain guy.
Go Haters!!! Most people on Verizon are from the northeast where you never get to experience the rest of the country. You only think you have good service do to the fact almost all of verizons towers for service are in New York, New Jersey, and so on. Try the rest of the world and you all who love verizon would have a whole new attitude when you can't use your phone!!!!
you guys that are down playing the new phones that vzw is coming out with is scared that once you try them you may just return your i-phone . hey i live down south and i never had a problem with my service and i have traveled out west and still no problems . you just mad because you got t-mobile
I live in bmore but my home is alabama. I take alot of trips back that way to Atlanta and so forth. I have even driven to both places while pretty much talking on my phone the whole time and no dropped calls. Sorry can't give you credit for that one.
I live in Washington the great North West and i've never dropped a call i also travel to Calli on a regular basis and again never a dropped call so for you to say only NY and NJ has service your an idiot who probably lives in your moms basement and just has a hard time getting service down there
It's official! The i760 will be launched to Business & Online on 10/19/2007 and Retail on 11/02/2007!
Damn Verizon sucks... I will not be impressed until they incorporate a 42 inch fold out plasma screen that fits into a 2 x 1 x .3 inch space with an expandable memory up to 57 gigs that doubles as a DVR. And i will only pay $5 dollars for it. Get real verizon listen to what the people want!
Man i dont know where you live? must be the stone age... verizon came out with that last year... i have three myself, geez come on man keep up with the times
what's your problem with idaho and utah? best states in the union bro. not enough big city and crazy loonies for ya!?
When are they coming out with the HTC s710 or the Stracom????
They need a decent smartphone
Whoever said the competitors are kicking VZW's ass... um no, they aren't. VZW has lowest churn and most retail ned adds quarter after quarter, most profit and highest revenue. VZW is kicking THEIR ass, lol
please! at&t! they can get there act togetther! there hole iphone! just 15 sec of fame! lol if you wnt a serious company get verizon not lame a$# companies! there just mad cause they thougth there were getting a good phone! all alone verizon was going to lunch something way better that works on EVDO lol! and has a full HML broser! your ignorance just prove us rigth! people dnt wnt reliable service they wnt a preaty phone that will be obsolete on 6mothns! lol! so far the voyager has proven better than the iphone! and by the way the touch sensitive display was all ready out! by LG the prada!!!! oh by the way for all of you lameos! verizon doesnt only work in NY i travel all over the united states and you knw what! i taken 4 difft phones tmobil, sprint, cingu/at&t and VERIZON! and wnt to knw something my verizon work all over the us hell even on Montana! out on the bunnies! texas,florida, all over Cali, nevada, oregon, DC, Ny, even on Idaho! so please! dnt make me laugth when you talk things that are not true! get your facts rigth! VERIZON RULES!

Tummy is right!!! The Voyager isnt even the I-phone killer because the I-phone is already dead. Why is it that you see the LG Chocolate in everyones hands, or even the EnV? I have see like 2 I-phones since they were supposed to be the next magnificent device!!! And where exactly is VZW dropping the ball on phones? Their phones do what the other carriers do, but they are better and can even do more like BT Stereo that yes, all the new phones will do!!! Oh yeah, by the way, the new LG's will also handle the AAC files of Apple, dont see the I-phone doing anything but I-tunes. Franklin Tummy, you are a genius for sharing your wisdom with the website.
I have verizon and travel frequently throughout the country and I always have great service and no dropped calls. I doubt that you know what your talkin about jabber. I have livind in california, las vegas and arizona my calls always come through crystal clear!!
You people talking about Verizon having piss poor service? Let's not forget what cell service was the only service working in lower Manhattan on 9/11. Oh and when the space shuttle disintegrated over Texas? Verizon again was the only service available during the search. Why? Because they responded quickly with their "COWS" (Cells On Wheels) to assist in the search. Also, how about hurricane Katrina? Same thing... "COWS". 95% of all Verizon Wireless cell towers have complete power backup using generators. Other carriers can't say that. They're lucky to have 50%. Face it VZW has the BEST wireless service available hands down. Those of you stuck in your contracts with AT&T, Sprint & T-Mobile are just upset and can't wait to switch.. I'm sure. Good luck with your calls. I know I'm good, I've got VZW!
Go back to your cubbies at Circuit City.
Both at&t and sprint have decent coverage, as well as Verizon.
Problem is Verizon is an arrogant company with piss poor phones.
looks I touched a nerve with you verizon lovers!!! Get real people!!! Obviously you don't take to much time to really look at your bill, check your service or see what you actually pay for. You have probably never tried another service either. I been on all the big carriers and know that you can't travel from coast to coast on the mother road and get service with anyone but att. FACT. And I know there are other states between the east and west coast because I live there. ATT dominates and you can't deny that! I have more friends with 10 times more dropped call problems on Sprint, Verizon, Tmobile than ATT. So there will be debates to who is better but unless you try them all, SHUT UP!!!!
Bill I have to agree with you!! elgee02 and C-dawg, WOW, you have really shown me the way!! How could i be so blind to the fact that you are completely clueless to the facts that I live in the midwest where Verizon , Sprint, Tmobile only have coverage in a few cities like Dallas and KC and St. Louis and partner coverage. Once you travel outside of those cities, there isn't any coverage. I don't jave that problem with ATT. And as bill said it mostly has to do with equipment. So, Yes there are more states between the coasts which most of you people seem to forget and prove my point with your comments. Try commin to the heartland and using your service and you'll think different.
I have Cingular and Verizon, and will be dropping Cingular due to poor service, dropped calls, and the constant charge for something called "Qcube". I do not download, so I do not understand why I am being charged for something I do not do. NO ONE USES MY PHONE EITHER. I get great reception everywhere with Verizon,even in Napa, CA. All you people complaining, need to get real. If you want the latest technology, work in the industry, then you should have the latest and greatest. But for everyone else, we can wait. Great service is always better than the latest technology.
Jabber, I HAVE tried every service, except T-Mobile, and Verizon is by far the best. AT & T charges for things you do not use, then after waiting for customer service, they will credit you, but you waste time every billing cycle. Sprint, don't get me started. So Jabber, neither Sprint nor AT & T work in Napa, where I also have property...only Verizon does. Niether Sprint nor AT&T data cards work in Napa...Verizon does. Who then do you think I am going to use. I have used all carriers...Verizon still beats them all. Bith my husband and me travel from New York to California and every state in between, and the only carrier that has ever given us great service and NO dropped calls is Verizon. AT&T may work briefly, but how many calls do you have that are dropped due to planes flying overhead, sun spots, phases of the moon, etc. And I lived in the Midwest, so I know exactly how "great" AT&T claims to be. So take your own advice, and I will stay with the carrier I know will work anywhere in the USA... Verizon.
So outside of the overprice and overhyped iPhone, how exactly do AT&T or Sprint have a better phone (not PDAs) lineup than VZW? Truth is, their lineups aren't better. Just cause AT&T launched the iHype that doesn't autimatically make their entire lineup better than everyone else. Please.
its great to see cust that knw that what they have its the best! personally i at&t sprint and tmobil and as a verison rep i can happily say that verizons network its the best@! everyone else talks about features on there phone but verizon puts everything and more on there phones frm gps to music we dnt need a phone for every feature like the other networks do! lol! and no other netwotk have COWS&COLTS(MOBIL TOWERS) when 9/11 verizon was the only network working in Ny and the rest of the US with out probls we have this sence we become Verizon no other network has this.
ps . have you even hear of the over the air programing that happen last week for the iPHONE frm 1.0 to 1.1 every phone that was hacked has problems now and at&t cust are not happy with them so lets see verison ever do anything like that to there costumer! lol!

I love verizon all the other carrriers can go to hell verizon takiing over. wa are the most reliable network. And we have a kick ass phone coming soon it so kills the i phone. your all invited to the i phones barrel on Nov.30,2007
You go jvillan!! If your a verizon rep then you would know that NYPD and NYFD and other city/state governments use the ATT network and couldn't rely on your sorry ass verizon network to provide service when it was needed most. You can check with the FCC for the awards given to ATT for the outstanding service provided during these times!!! And NO, I don't recall verizon being mentioned in the same breath!!
And by the way, ATT spends 5.5 billion a year on network updates and towers for services! Yes, that is more than verizon!
So, as it has been said before!! There are more states in the middle of the country between the coasts that verizon doesn't provide service to that ATT does!
The facts are the facts!! Verizon gets ATT leftover phones that ATT wouldn't even give a dog to chew on!!!
You can get all the fancy you want and you still have to pay for it. But if the service ain't there, why have it.
So when all the Verizon lovers actually look at the facts and figures. Then say something worth while.
Ok you verizon lovers, check the FCC website for your details before you open your pie hole and spill something that ain't smelling to good.
lol dnt make me laugth its sooo funny if you really wnt to get to this point and say that at&t not att retard is better than verizon then why do they get so many drop call! please@! and there wireless internet! please they have to either use Wi-Fi or a slow ass dialup! why we get rev-0 or rev-A so get your facts rigth! and we are the only network with COWs-Colts the trucks with the bilt in tower in case of emergency! lol!
OK Jvillan!! You got me!!! I didn't know so many people used their phones for email services. Last I recalled, both ATT and Verizon were phone companies!!! So you don't have anything actually to offer any of the educated people in the world about their service and getting better phones than Verizon can offer!!! All I see is a repeat of what you said before!! I thought COWs stood for Crap Offered Weekly by Verizon cause it don't sound like to many people are happy with the equipment even though the service may be good!!!
Last I recalled people were already paying for internet at home and most users make calls or text!!!
When you respond, give everyone some hard facts to view! Life ain't fair when your a loser!!!!

I'm pretty sure that most people buy phones for where they live and will use it. So even if we assume for a moment that your statement is true, and most Verizon subscribers are from the northeast, and 'almost all verizon towers' are in NY/NJ, then why, my friend, would you suggest we go elsewhere and try using our phones? To me, your argument is about as logical as saying "Yeah, you think you have a great yacht.. but try using it in the desert.. you'll 'have a whole new attitude' about it..
FRANK,FRANK,FRANK, your not the only fish in the see of cell phone users and I expected better rhetoric but I am disappointed with the start. Where ever you are Frank, it's good you can use your phone. Unlike you, I do get around and commonly use my equipment while roaming!! And I never have a dropped call like Verizon!!!! You still prove my point about quality responses regarding service and coverage. So give me something better to compare with since I can see deeper into the verizon network than you and know where you do and don't get service.
These phones are pathetic attempt to try and beat there competitor. I guess Verizon is doing that bad that they had to copy the I phone, these phones suck they will put there stupid OS on all of them that cripples the phone and makes it so that the user has almost no control, for you people that say a phone is suppose to be just a phone, I think ur argument is lame, Verizon's whole point is to try and make the user feel that the phone is no longer a phone but a device that gives the user more than just a phone thats why their devices have all of the V Cast services on them . Long story short Verizon sucks one day people will learn that GSM is the best!
I am from down south and i have not experience any problem when traveling to Georgia or florida. Again Verizon does not say that guarantee service everywhere but they do have coverage just about everywhere. If you dont like Verizon then dont. I speak for anyone that has VZW that we say fuck off and we still #1 and the other carrier dont spend no where as much as verizon does on there towers. If yoiu have property then see if you can a tower put on your lot if not then keep travel and get a 401k.

I live in the Pacific Northwet and have SELDOM dropped a call with Verizon. I also travel on motorcycle vacations all over the US and Canada and crisscross the US - hardly a place out there that I don't get reception and some of those places I get reception are out in the middle of nowhere - Custer's Last stand area in Montana, the Tetons, in Wyoming, etc....
davis, your still on the coast. What part of middle of the country did you not understand. There are 50 states in this country or are you not originally from here where we learn that in our school systems. Your language isn't necessary and you didn't have anything to contribute to any discussion except your ignorance.
yup i get service in the basement of my building...i'm constantly letting other people borrow my verizon phone so they don't have to walk upstairs to use theirs. used to have t-mobile and it's a joke. didn't even get reception at MY HOUSE. anywhere!! these phones look amazing and i can't wait to check them out. no kidding...the iphone is DEAD...never had any interest in that piece of junk. it's funny how many comments this thread has...so many people are just jealous that they won't be getting a new phone and put these down to make their own seem better.

I was a Verizon loyalist for years, because they do have good coverage. I also had Sprint for a minute but they are the worst. When the iPhone came out I changed to AT&T and got the iPhone. I absolutely love it! Even if you only need a phone, it is by far the best phone I have every owned. And guess what? The coverage isn't as bad as I thought it would be. In fact there is only one area in my basement where it is very weak (I live in central OH). Other than that it is as good as Verizon was for me. And hands down, the iPhone is the best mobile phone, iPod, web browser, PDA device I have ever owned. So instead of complaining about Verizon's lame line up of phones and if the only thing holding you back is the chance you might not have as good coverage, I say do a little AT&T coverage research in your area and then go for it. You will probably not be sorry.
nice one west finally a person with some inteligence! true the voyager has its +'s and the iphone 2 but seriouly! people are just jealous lets just leave it there! and kamala! im 100% sure that you are a at&t employee and for the looks of it your store is dead all the time! lol! please! do us all a favor get life!

Verizon has good service, but compensates with slow product introductions. The rest (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Alltel, etc) do not have the same quality of service as Verizon and thus compensate with cool phones. The iPhone is revolutionary and the rest of the phone manufacturers have scrambled to match it's features. Thinking that the LG Voyager as an iPhone killer is laughable, when it is merely a copycat wannabe of the iPhone. It is not unique nor does it give the user any new features that are clearly differentiable. User experience with a phone is not dictated by HW specs alone. Apple has done a great job with the iPhone interface and integrating it with iTunes as well as provide a lot of unique ways to viewing the internet, pictures, and listen to music, etc...Even though I do not own an iPhone, I can appreciate the product and how it has made the rest of the phone industry scramble with it's introduction. My XV6700 has been a great phone. It's feature set has been able to support me very well, and offers several things the iPhone does not do. But, it is about to be retired from all of the abuse it has endured. It would be nice to have an option to upgrade to the next version under Verizon right now. Instead, I continue to lust after the AT&T Tilt (HTC TytnII).
i live in cali and ive been around the country and the world, i have verizon and there hasn't been 1 dropped call
