These phones are obsolete. Gimme me a break Verizon. Is this the best you can do?

Some Verizon exec heads should roll for this miserable marketing campaign -- say it's the network, and save money by purchasing bulk crap phones. They have the nerve to actually hype this rubbish like it was something special?

3. OMFG unregistered

verizon doesnt seem to kno that PEOPLE ARE WAITING FOR THE xv6800 and the i760, not no juke, gleam, or rizrTV

What are all you guys talking about? I agree with elgee. These are for mass consumers who want something that looks nice and stays in there pocket. It has no reason to be compared to a PDA. I have customers everyday since the image of the Juke showed on Verizon Website asking about it. the Rizr I will agree is long in the tooth , but it's all about options. And options is what Verizon is providing.

Yeah for those who can't tell the differance form a cell phone and smartphone/pda these are not them. There is only one of the four 'next' phones the perl is anything close that needs a data pack. And for those of you who can't keep your pants on to wait for the I760 when it is out it will be 399.99 2yr and 449.99 for 1yr full retail is 519.99 happy. NO there is no date, so chill out if you want it wait if you can't wait get something else. They are only phones people.

Obviously elgee02 works for Verizon. Just read all of the post this person has written. Back to the phones. Come on Verizon. I have been waiting for the 6800 for almost a year now. AT&T has the next generation phone to the 6800 out now, and if these post are right, a lot less than that piece of crap i760. How can you have the best network, but not the hardware that can take advantage of it? I'm porting my number when my contract expires this month.

Just be aware.... there is a reason ATT is no longer saying the fewest dropped calls.........they are dropping left and right. So if you rather be with a network who doesn’t test everything before we sale it and spend over 4million on the network a year oh and are first to natural disasters like the fires in cali/ 911/ Katrina giving free phones then by all means port away. Have fun with the network holding on by a thread. Verizon man not be the first to pop out these great phones, but they make sure the equipment works and if id has issues they replace the phones, now you can even replace the phone if you broke it lost it had it stolen w/ an upgrade EARLY.

I'm right with you. I ported my number for the same reason. Verizon is too arrogant to think people will keep accepting what they give us, not to mention they cripple phones, nickle and dime you for everything, and make you buy a new car charger for every phone so they can make more money. I can't even get a belt clip with the phone from Verizon anymore. You have to pay for that too. I got the Tilt from AT&T and I love it. It'll take Verizon until 2010 to come out with the same phone.

Known of you seem to have a clue about wireless. AT&T have to launch products before they're ready because their network is crap. All their marketing is based on a product, not a quality for real 3G network. AT&T hypes their products and lets their customers beta test for them. When Verizon launches a product it's right the 1st time.

12. walkre2 unregistered

Wow I read back thru all the prior posts and cant believe that anyone still thinks that AT&T is any good. Dropped calls, static on every call, 3G network that offers dial-up speed downloads! AT&T has to launch cool stuff 1st because the service sucks so bad. Besides the crappy network, AT&T is going to rush a not completely tested handset to market time and again (anyone remeber the original Moto Razr, the iPhone?) and over charge for it. Wow thats a company that really cares about their customers. These posts just show how idiotically impulsive the U.S. consumer has become- they would rather buy crap and settle for lousy service instead of waiting for quality.

I got the iphone and couldn't be happier. Verizon skipping on the iphone was the biggest mistake ever.

So how many of you iphoen buyers plan on or already have the new ipod? which dose everything your iphone dose only isn't on a bad network? talk about wasting money. Least with other networks you have internal memorie and ext so you can have over 32g of cards of memorie ..... hum wast of money?

Verizon made a smart choice by turning down the iPhone. It's nothing but a fancy toy that does everything about half right. Looks cool, but crap functinality. I checked my a couple of local AT&T dealers and none of their sales rep carried the iPhone. I asked why and they said it was a P.O.S. Apple who's never made a wireless handset before is going to market the iPhone and get it right the 1st time. Steve Jobs is going to control the development and marketing and keep the wireless carrier out of the loop??? What was AT&T's why Verizon turned it down to start with. Now look at all the chumps that forked over $5-600 and now Apple is releasing the new iTouch. Again I'm amazed at all the idiots that would rather buy crap than quality. I guess I'll be shopping eBay this christmas to see how many idiots are dumping their "I just had to have it" iPhone.

Those phones look good!!! BUT I would never trade in my iPhone for any of those. The iPhone is the best buy I have ever made!! I no longer have to carry my iPod and phone around because it is the same thing!! At first I was turned off by the iPhone because of the hype and the price, but once you get past that you will see just WHY it was so hyped and worth the price. It might just be because I am in the DC area, but I have bars EVERYWHERE. My boyfriend has verizon and we always compete to who has more bars and I always win! People who are bashing the iPhone should really try testing it out for a week and you will most likely become an apple and at&t fan!!! PLUS you can finally have a nice looking UI and not a nasty red and white one.

To all of you complaining about these phones are stupid. phones come out in different series these are low end phones that give people a lot for there money for those people who don't want to pay 400 dollars for a music phone it gives them a 2 gb mp3 player for less than a 2gb I pod and does it in an all in one device Verizon is doing a great job on there phones. As for you looking for the PDA's they will be coming and for you with I phones the new voyager is going to be the I phone killer because it will do everything the I phone does plus more and at faster speeds plus give a full keyboard
