I could not share your concern any more. I own a voyager and in a few more months, with my contract ending, I'll be looking for a new phone, and this phone seems like an interesting option. However, having the Voyager, I've really enjoyed the feel of the keypad. I agree with you about the possible difficulty over holding the phone and typing on it.

Lol, so much for "lower end Dare" This phone has everything the Dare doesn't cept a 3.2MP Camera.

And more! Didn't notice the optional game pad b4. kinda silly but if you haven't tried playing Need for Speed w/out it,.. it will make a HUGE difference.

hahah yes thats what i thought, but im actually glad cuz i really like the phone and if it had windows mobile it would be considered one of verizons smartphones and come with verizons new awesome must have data plan for 30 bucks a month which i cant afford. lol, so its good and bad... the good i can afford it and will buy it, the bad no windows so lack of options and features. oh well. but thanks t-money3000 for the answer :)

I wonder if this keyboard will be something that you can purchase and use with a dare?

Nope. The Versa uses special accessory contacts on the back. The Dare doesn't have these.
