Motorola coming out with an actually durable phone? I'll wait till we get these in our store to be the judge of that.

Hmm? Have you ever heard of NEXTEL.??

I work for Verizon, of course I've heard of Nextel. Motorola just doesn't make the most dependable phones. Even you should know that.

I just hope it doesn't lag or have limited UI customization like all the other Motos

To answer both...the original RAZR was (and is) one of the most durable phones I have ever owned (and read millions upon millions of such testimonials online, too). The RAZR2, also very very durable. The only "weak" phones I've ever had are Samsung and Sony Ericsson (though SE's OS is my very favorite). As to Moto's OS...the new MOTOMAGX (RAZR2 V8, RIZR, ROKR, etc) is WONDERFUL...and, the updated Synergy used on the RAZR2 V9 is FAR more customizable, and one of the fastest you'll ever see. You guys need to get to up to date on your cell facts...

i hope ur talking about the razr for tmo or att cuz for cdma they suck just like u >_< i would never in my life buy another a moto phone. i am sticking with HTC for LIFE!!

Razr is a good phone? Thats odd considering all the broken and glichy ones I still see at my store. The only phone worse is the Krazer and its probably on the same level of horrible as the original chocolate...... I hope moto pulls themselves up with the new models because anyone that works in a store can tell you how poor they are compared to other makers. I do like the moto 755...

Hey pmm122 I think YOU need to get up to date on your facts. I work for Verizon and trust me, Motorola is at the BOTTOM of the list. They are returned to my store ALL the time. If you actually worked with different cell phone models daily like I do, you would see how crappy they really are. So next time before you go posting on how good a phone is maybe YOU need to check out your facts.

Nikki, As someone who is familiar with Verizon phones, which one do you think is the best for call quality and reception? I am soon turning in my old LG VX8350 clam for a new phone and I am confused by all the choices. I like the LG enV2 design but I do not do much text messaging. The new LG VX8610 looks promising. Are all Motorola phones poor in your opinion? How about the z6c or this new V750? I prefer not to purchase a touch screen phone because of the "issues" I have read about them. Otherwise, the Venus might be perfect. Thanks for your time and input. I think you can help out many of us with your reply.

This phone looks pretty good. It will be WAY better than the stupid G'Zone they have now.

I like the idea of a ruggedized phone, but most of the manufacturing plants I work in will not allow cameras of any kind in the plant. If they are trying for the business market, I think they miss the point by not having a cameraless option. Also certification for Class I, Div I areas, but thats another issue.

the current G'z one can be ordered for customers in a non-camera version and that thing can take a beating

Oh come one everyone! This phone doesn't look that bad. Hell, I'd take it over a Juke. It will be a nice addition to Verizon's line up.

Is it weatherproof like the G'Zones? It doesn't look like it, but that would be nice.

i want this phone! any idea when it will be out?

31. 483euilp unregistered

just ask for the phone they probably have it in stock already. i bought mine at july 15. so they have it but havent been selling it to most costumers yet its only worth a 100 after 50 dollars rebate. just ask for it if they have it in stock at any verizon store but not at other stores like circuit city, best buy, or other stores that sells verizon phones cause they dont have it in stock until the day they sell them. which is july 28, 2008

I never understand why the big secret? Just give us a release date already! We know its comin- just give us the date ! Act like its some kind of government secret or something. I get tired of waiting, I will just go over to Sprint and get the same damn phone (V950) & use THIER lousy network! At least I will have my phone...... they already released thiers !!
