Interactive User Guide for the LG Dare now posted on Verizon's site
With the on-line release of the LG Dare only two days away (June 26), it appears that Verizon is getting ready for the big launch. The Interactive User Guide has now been spotted, which shows how to perform various operations on the device, such as dialing phone numbers and charging the battery, but also goes into more detail with the music player, camera, video recording, photo editing, messaging, V Cast, and Bluetooth.

As we reported last week, the Dare is expected to be priced at $199 after $50 rebate on a 2-year contract, $249 after $50 rebate on a 1-year contract, and $409 full retail.

*UPDATE* For those of you who can't wait until the 26th for the "official release", it appears that Verizon's TeleSales is now accepting orders for the Dare.

The voyager actually has you tube in the enhanced web browser. You don't put the site in the browser because there is a link in the browser that is named you tube for you to watch the videos and they play very clear.

So, your saying "YOUTUBE" is the most important feature on a phone that your looking for? That's great news because now I can actually submit your comment into YOUTUBE and maybe get them to make a phone especially for your "YOUTUBE" enjoying purpose and that will be the only feature that phone will be capable of doing for your enjoyment...

actually, if u go to, you can go on youtube. i did it on my voyager and im sure you could do this on the dare

the thing that sucks its not a glass interface. i hate the voyagers and ill probably hate this one too. it wears out after a couple of months. i guess ill have to wait for the blackberry thunder. so annoying. i do like how they added a 3.5mm head jack though. thats pretty awesome

3. unregistered

(same person from above) unless someone can convince me to get this phone ill get it. does anyone agree with me on the interface though?

5. unregistered

definitely, i strongly agree with your comment.

Honestly for an extra $50 a 1 year contract sounds like an amazing idea. The Thunder is suppost to be due late this year early next year, so you should be close for an upgrade when it comes out. I say go for it, worse thing that can happen is you don't like and return it within 30 days buyers remorse.

Yeah, I wish the LG phones that Verizon carries would come in something other then cheap plastic. The only phone that Verizon carried which wasn't made of cheap plastic was the LG vx8700 the stainless steel looking phone. I do like how the Prada and the Vu from AT&T is designed looks wise.

The Vu looks good on screen but in person I wasn't impressed. Cheap black plastic and the screen was HORRIBLE. Dare would be a different story from the way things look, hopefully it will be.
