Verizon Wireless CDM8975 ReviewVerizon Wireless CDM8975 5
The included 1100mAh battery is rated to provide to up 4 hours and 45 minutes of talk time or 3.7 days of standby time on a full charge. Our testing showed both of these times to be accurate.
Out of the three current PTT phones for Verizon, the CDM8975 comes in last, and behind the competition, with mediocre construction and low-end features, as it doesn’t bring anything new to the table, despite the good PTT voice quality If you’re looking for a good PTT device for Verizon, we’d first recommend the Motorola Adventure , since it is in the same price category as the CDM8975, has more features, and is built better, followed second by the Boulder, for its ruggedness and durability.
- Large orange PTT button
- Loud PTT volume
- Good music playback
- Overall poor construction
- Low quality 1.3MP camera
- Boring design

Its a push to talk phone; Phonearena what do u expect from it? 8 megapixel camera? 3.2 inch touch screen? 3.5 headset jack? A design that makes you guys happy? most of the people that yous this phone are people that work in construction or other fields. I know this because my older brother works in construction and he docent care how it looks as long as it has the push to talk thing.....

Okay, so why shouldn't this phone be rated harshly? Because it's from Verizon? Phone Arena obviously knows it's not a high tech phone, but if you look at other PTT phones, they have designs that can be interesting. They have features that can be both functional and a great multimedia experience. Look at the Motorola i9. It has a 3.2 megapixel camera, PTT, video playback, media player, etc. So yeah, just because it's PTT doesn't mean Phone Arena should go easy on it.

As you can see, we do recommend the Adventure that is also PTT phone for Verizon Wireless.
