my opinons about the voyager and udunt

I think it was ignorant to write a nasty comment and especially going astray of the topic the beauty hear is the LG VOYAGER. I hear it is a sweet phone and i cant wait for it to come in the mail .I wish someone could post a video on youtube so i can see more about the lg voyager.I am so excited that i cant wait till i get my hands on it i personally wish that the mobile tv could have more channels but it is good to at least the phone has mobile T.V. KUDOS TO LG KUDOS TO Verizon and by the way when i went to BJS I saw the venus and the vibrating tactilcle feedback is amazing .....scratch that i just went to circuit city and saw the voyager and boy is it sweet and the qwerty is amazing i understand why owners cant put it down

Not Satisfied...

I went to Verizon today to buy the phone and it was sold out unsurprisingly, however I did take the time to use the sample one that they had at the counter and I wasn't too thrilled, mainly with the actual GUI of the phone. The touch screen isn't as sensitive as I thought it would be. You sort of have to press down hard or sometimes several times to make the selection of your choice. In your hands it feels pretty nice, not weighty or jumbo, just right. The inside screen is nice as well and I enjoyed using the keyboard. There was just something about navigating the touch screen that I wasn't at all happy with. It genuinely needs to be more responsive. It's sad that this phone was released post-iphone hype because it's going to suffer from constant comparisons. A comparison that would've happened regardless but will now be even worse because of the whole "iphone killer" hoo haa that went on in the past few months. The fact of the matter is that it's impossible to be unbiased. Even the most loyal Verizon customer will have to admit that they've encountered a SUPERIOR touch screen interface with the iPhone. Since the touch screen phenomenon reached an all new high this year with Apple's technology it's going to be hard for anything else touch screen to face the fire, unless it's as good or better. Essentially it depends on what you're looking for. If you think the Voyager is your answer to the dilemma you faced in wanting an iPhone without changing service providers you may be mistaken....

MAN OF STEEL

A big mistake most people are having is that they are trying to label it as a "iPhone Killer", which it isn't. What it is, tho,is a HUGE " iPhone Deterrant." The phone could have been a little slimmer in thickness but that just me being petty. Also, the touch capabilties on the web browser needs to be improve,which it most likely will, with software patches...but everything else is excellent. The call quality.the menu navigation, the highspeed connection, the touch pad interface in general,vz navigator, Mobile Tv, 2 megapixel camera ALL Excellent. Given all that,minus the issues mentioned in the begining. The Voyager gets a resounding 9 for Rating from me..Hope this helps some of you out there

Iphone vs Voyager

The phones listed in the title are completely different aside from sharing a couple of similar features such as the touch screen and the music capabilities just to new a couple of the more important. Moreover, the iphone is a smartphone; in other words it uses apples os as it's platform. The voyager isn't a samrtphone, because by definition doesn't support a ms mobile or palm mobile os or the like. Therefore, the serve 2 distinct purposes, and are meant for two totally different markets. The voyager is by far one of the most advanced CELL PHONES (not to be confused with smarphone for the reasons mentioned before) currently on the market. However, technology wise both the voyager and the Iphone really bring nothing new to the table, because Palm treos have been out on the market for many years with the capability of touch screen, ms mobile applications, and expandable memory for music. On a side note, the main market for the voyager is for someone, who likes to text, occasionally get on the web through their cell phone, and possibly take pics, and listen to music. The iphone is for someone who wants to be able to sync with their pc, transfer files, etc., for any other purpose aside from it being a status symbol, people would be wasting their money in purchasing it; as it would have features they would probably never use. The main disadvantage is the iphones network, because unlike the voyager, it operates on an edge data network, whihc the spends at max are 120kbps, where as the...

Why are we comparing?

I don't get it, does the Iphone come in CDMA?? I would have really liked to go with AT&T and get the Iphone but verizon offers me a plan (nationwide + Canada) that AT&T no longer competes with. So now that I have to choose between CDMA phones why are people rating the voyager relative to a GSM phone? Can you people please rate the phone only if you have actually used it so that people like me can get some useful information.

Please rate the phone for it's own features and how they work. Don't rate it relative to a GSM phone

OMG THE WAIT!!!!

I have been waiting for this phone since i first saw it on PhoneArena, thats the end of september!.. i couldnt wait till pre order date and now im waiting for the phone. i think i might even have tears of joy running down my face when i finally receive it!
i've been trying to look for a place to buy a 8gb micro sd memory card tho, i mean..i dont wanna over pay cause it seems like only verizon have the 8gb memory card..anyone know where i can get a 8gb micro sd card cheaper than verizon?
also, since we can upload and play our own songs on the memory card, do u think if we uploaded videos on the card it would work with the phone?? i mean it would be useless to buy a 8gb memory card only for music.. ahhh i just cant wait!!!

cool but...

I'm not saying it's an ugly phone or the worst phone, heck if it was for like $100-$150 i would get it. But its not, the pricing is gonna be like $250. I think it's is a rip off for all the features this phone can do. It has a touch screen but it sure as heck isn't as good as the iPhone, and i hate the iPhone. It's practically the same thing as the enV but with an extremely slow, imagine less than dial-up, internet explorer, and a whatever mobile TV. Personally i don't like it because it's not something different, it is a flip phone just like the enV, if they put in more time and made a better design it would have been better, but what could we do. I'm gonna wait for the SCH-U940, it looks like a pretty solid phone and might be better than the Voyager. Just before you buy it or walk out your door to get it just think about what you getting don't just listen to the hype or commercial.

IT tech resorce manager

The Voyager is truly all the things the I phone is not. The ability to use this device in any major metropolitan and minor metro city on a broadband network far exceds the iphone 1-g service with att. Although the wi fi capability is nice my job & lifestyle make that a very unatracitve option. The cost of use and upkeep on the Voyger with VZW is a much better option as well. The ability to down load music and applications with expandable memory while on the go frees me from that computer teather as needed by the Iphone. The I phone has a superior interface but it does not win in overall capability and fuctional abilities. And I can also watch my favorite show 24 live. And of coarse I can make a call and be assured it will work

aye

anyone rating this phone with low scores based on what they here a extremely dumb. User opinions should not be what you base your review on most of them are just jealous people to poor to buy a decent phone so don't knock it till you McDonald's job pays off and you can afford one to give a real review. This phone is a great average phone with a spin i have both the iphone and this phone the iphone is far better but the reception on it is poor at time wich i have never had a problem with on Verizon. For just a normal nationwide plan the voyager is great no addons and super expensive bills this i where this phone pays off. And for people saying that this phone is getting bad reviews it has a 8.3 and a editors choice award on CNET a trusted site for reviews.

awsome

This phone is awsome. ATAT is a slow network and if you compare coverage maps verizon has by far more coverage especially in vermont. ATAT needs to start expanding, everyday verizon is building more towers and increasing vcast coverage around the country. This phone cannot compete with the iphone because the iphone was the first touch screen and it came out earlier. The voyager has a big keyboard with 2 screens and has a replacable battery. The iphone doesnt have a replacable battery or keyboard. Also, there are no buttons on the front like send or end. Verizon is awsome and has way better adverstising than atat also. WHo cares no wifi, its not supposed to be a pda or black berry, its just a normal phone. voyager+verizon=awsome
