i played with this at the verizon store today. the keys are oddly flat but the space bar in the middle was a big up for lg. i really dont know what the thing is with the mini screen infront, there are tons of phones with fullsized screens and clamshell/slider keyboards.

The Verizon LG enV3 VX9200 constantly shuts off and powers down. Yes, all the reports are true and accurate.

This phone has been out for a while but if you're thinking about buying it used in Ebay or Amazon, don't.
Both my son and I have this phone and so do friends of his. One day all of a sudden the earpiece stopped working so you can no longer hear the person on the other end of a call. You can flip open the phone and use the speaker phone but obviously that's not something you want to do all the time. The phone also shuts itself off at random times too.
Interestingly enough the earpiece on my phone and my son's phone stopped working only a few days before we were eligible for an upgrade from Verizon. Coincidence? Probably not. Verizon knows where you are located whenever the phone is on and they can access the phone without you knowing and make firmware changes to it at any time. How do you think they are able to activate the phone when you first purchase it and how do you think you can update the roaming area by calling *228 and pressing "2"? They can just as easily disable the earpiece from working too. That way you have to buy a new phone and commit another 2-year contract. Pure Genius on Verizon's part.

Save your money. This phone looks good but is a piece of junk. Calls go straight to voice mail at least 50% of the time. Text messages show up hours later. I know its not a network problem because my old verizon phone didn't have these problems. I have been to the verizon store 4 or 5 times, now they are going to send me a refurbished env3 - gee great, I can harldy wait. Now I can't to deal with someone else's piece of junk. I'm eligible for an upgrade in Jan. If it doesn't get better I'll go back to my old flip phone with no QWERTY key board. DON'T DO IT MAN!!!!
