Well, it is about time bthey anounced when the phones will be released, but they need to release them sooner. Nobody wants to wait another 2 months to get one of these phones. They've ben planning them for a while now, and they need to make th release dates sooner.

The LG 9700 you need to realize isnt the iphone and the iphone isnt the 9700, apples and oranges/ make a list of what you actually do with a phone (like make calls) or want a sleek phone to showoff, or both and will to substitute a fashion statement (iphone) ... think about it..

The Dare is a decent shot at an iPhone look-a-like, but not great. I hate AT&T, and if Verizon carried the iPhone, I would have had it by now. I bought a Dare in July and love it. The 3.2MP camera w/flash is good, the delay makes it hard to take awesome pics, but it's not bad. I'm not a huge fan of the browser, and I do think that it lacks the responsiveness and the 2 finger drag/zoom that the iPhone has. One big drawback for the touchscreen - nearly impossible to text w/out looking since there are no buttons to feel to figure out where your thumb is - expecially annoying when I'm driving 3 hours home for a weekend and people are texting me to see what I'm doing that night. Still the best Verizon phone that I've owned (v120e back in the day, v265 which sucked, and the KRZR that I loved until I lost 2 of them within a week and a half and couldn't wait for insurance papers to be processed). If the iPhone does ever come over from the dark side, I'll be all over it, until then I just hope that LG keeps trying. Oh, and I had the Voyager for a couple weeks... before I exchanged it for the Dare. The only reason I got it was because I wanted buttons instead of a touchscreen, then I found myself only using the outside touch screen to text, etc. Voyager = worthless (who needs and/or wants to pay for Mobile TV?).

Release dates are so ficticious. Does any phone company reach a release date ever. Im going to make my decision to switch to AT&T Ill be happy with the VU since the Dare could take forever to be released. Verizon is so obsessed with holidays and launching just before a holiday it will shoot itself in the foot. Verizon should know that people are getting there stimulus check before then and should release sooner. Gee nothing for Father's day. Either its going to be the Glyde or the VU it seems. I won't wait 50 months for a decent phone. Is Verizon trying to loose me as a customer.
