really?? Funny you say that when they're ranked the highest in JD Power & Associates and Consumer Reports. although... they're being recently being won over by Alltel--in the areas that Alltel and VZW co-exist! So... I was wondering, was this just a personal gripe with VZW or were you actually going off quantifiable facts that actually mean something?

My girlfriend works for Verizon and she had a hands on experience with the glyde at there last managers meeting and she said the date was confirmed for July!

Clearly this is Samsung's version of the Voyager. I will keep my trust with LG since they are a reputable phone maker. Samsung has really slacked in the cell phone market of late (except for the Gleam and Juke). The Alias? Horrible !!! The i760? Decent !!! I hope the Glyde lives up to the hype.

Clearly you are poorly informed. This phone has been out for a while in a GSM variant. There is NO way this is a Clone of the Voyager. VZW is just trying to diversify its product line and give consumers a choice of touchscreen, QWERTY phones.

Clearly I AM well informed. The UI and touchscreen is slightly different than the f700. With all the specs that it has ( including the HTML browser ), this will VZW's next fully touch screen non- smartphone. The only divesrity in that is that it is a different phone manufacturer. Keep in mind, the Voyager is really a variant of the Prada, so it too was out for a while before LG released the Voyager to VZW.... and the Prada and f700 had a lot in common.

Software aside b/c it is VZW after all and both the voyager and the glyde have the std VZW UI but that doesn't degate the fact that the hardware for the phone has been out for quite some time. The Voyager may have been based on the Prada, but when announced 1/07, the Prada didn't have any hinged qwerty feature. When the f700 was announced a month later, it DID. So don't bullshit a bullshitter. As far as UI goes, I am excited to see what exactly of Croix VZW let get mixed into their UI. This phone is what is what I am waiting for to switch to VZW from Tmo

WELL SAMSUNG ISNT BAD AT ALL. PRETTY RELIABLE PHONES. I'VE HAD LG'S MOTOROLAS AND FINALLY NOW I HAVE THE SAMSUNG U740 AND ITS THE BEST PHONE IVE EVER HAD. SO YOUR PERSONAL PREFERENCE MAY BE THAT YOU DONT LIKE THE U740 BUT HAVE YOU OWNED IT? I DROP THIS THING CONSTANTLY AND ITS HELD UP BETTER THAN ANY PHONE IVE EVER HAD.

The samsung u740 is MEH! It is too hard to type with your left hand, and the numbers are annoyingly small when trying to dial a phone number. I have had this phone since last summer and am not impressed with it. The battery pops off every time i drop it, so you must have a super tight back lol As far as the glyde and the Voyager go..... Voyager is a better phone, the ui has less of a lag than the samsung Glyde (what a suprise, every samsung lags 1-2 seconds once you put in several hundred contacts, but no where near as bad as the motorola 3-5 second lag) The ui on both the voyager and the glyde are much better than that of the Venus I do like the Glyde's slider better than the hinge of the Voyager, but its designed for a left handed person, as is the Samsung I760. I played with a Glyde earlier today, the camera is clear but it is not nearly as friendly to use as the voyagers is. will give more results once it launches this weekend and we play with them after activated on the network

All I ask for in this phone, if I get it, is that unlike the Voyager, I hope that the speaker and ringtone volume will be much louder. That is all I ask for. Hey, I've accepted the fact that Verizon is not exactly known for it's great phones. Once you get that, you have the best reception on the planet.

Verizon Wireless definately does'nt put phones in infomanger for the phones to come out in July. Once the phones are in Infomanager the phones are usually released theat month or the next month. So its definatley gonna be released in May!! WOOHOO I can't wait for this phone!
