Okay thanks..i read on Hofo that they are going to over night ship these phones or we have the option of doing so...anyone else heard such?

i tried ordering the DARE early since CS has been known to allow that and the rep said he would give me free overnight shipping. So just ask for it and you shall receive. Also worth a shot, I have not had a phone that worked with vcast so I asked for a free month of it to try it out and the rep put on my account for a free month of the vcast service with no charge.

Cool, hope the touch screen is decent I have a BB pearl, my gf has a enV. that thing is a big fat brick. i always hoped while i was at the bank a robber would come in and hold up the place. then i could reach in my gf's purse and grab and enV and throw it at the bank robbers head, saving the day ;)

i have gotten to play with one of the test devices in person and i can tell you the touchscreen on this thing is amazing!!! the accelerometer works like it does in the iPhone. its an amazing device all around. granted its no iphone but the thing come dangerously close! Steve has some worrying to do lol.

hey, yet another dummy maybe I'm incorrect but on the iphone you can send anyone a pic and there is no video at all and as far as the stuff that is so important to you you should have a pda not the dare or the iphone and how can any compare the iphone when the simplest feature like changing your own damn battery is impossible without voiding your warranty. Go to an at&t sit and lick balls with everyone else addicted to the second best network!!

Wow this could have been an awesome phone but it is still missing basic features, why can't they put in an email client on one of there phones, instead of nickel and diming to have that mobile email get it now application for $5 nokia, sony ericsson, and others have always built them in. What good is it to have a 3.2 megapixel camera if you can't even send that big of a file and no picturebridge so your pics can be synced with your computer automatically and only 5 numbers per contact so you can't store home or work addresses, how do you want people to keep using navigator when you can't store addresses for you contacts to navigate to. Are we suppose to carry around a pencil and paper when someone gives us there address. It is just these simple stuff that makes me pissed off how anyone can even compare this to an Iphone.

agreed above me...this isnt made to be like some super smart phone..its a high end consumer phone...i dont really think there trying to kill iphone with this becuase anyone with a decent amount of common sense knows that something that will take on iphone will take alot more then what this offer

the iphone is not a god. it's just an overpriced phone that everyone wants because of the price and name. I prefer my winmo because at least I can download other applications for it.

I agree that Verizon has a much better network. My teacher had the old iphone and she had three consecutive calls dropped in the middle of class. And it was very annoying because she had to keep going back to her desk to try to answer. That's one reason why I agree tha the iphone is not a god like all the apple fanboys believe. With that said, I'm still probably going to leave my voyager and be in line on July 11th for the new iphone. I bought the Voyager because Verizon said it was better than the iphone. That was a total lie. It was just faster than the iphone. But now I'm not taking the same chances with the Dare. I know service is more important, but if all that mattered was the network then why would all these companies try packing all these features inside new phones. But I'd never even think about going to AT&T if they didn't have the iphone. and personally, I don't want the iphone because of the name. I've never had anything apple before. I really don't like ipods because they feel so unnecessary. I don't have the computers because I like pc's better. And if the iphone 3g is overpriced, then why would people want the iphone because of "the name and the price" like you stated.

Are you stupid? The new iphone is going to have an app store with more applications than windows mobile phones have ever had! And at $200 with a 2yr contract, that's a lot cheaper than a lot of winmo phones out there. That's all I've got to say, didn't mean to talk about the iphone more on an LG announcement, I just have to point out stupidity when I see it.

LMAO it never fails...someone always complains about nickle and diming

Iphone sucks... no MMS, no flash for camera, and no viideo recording. My $30 phone does all of that

You are obviously uninformed. I just have to point out stupidity when I see it. You really think the App store will have more applications than windows mobile ever had??? The Windows mobile PocketPC was released in April of 2000. It not only have 8 years of support, but thousands upon thousands of applications for it. The iPhone has yet to even remotely be close to that. The count right now is at about two. Don't call other people stupid after you say something stupid yourself.
