    Hehe, I'm not too sure then. I havn't seen the voyager in action, although I have seen the Prada, and that is quite nice.

    I've been eying the Voyager too... It's a very nice phone. I'm, on AT&T so I'll be grabbing an iPhone this weekend, but still. Nice little thing.

    Don't expect it to be anything at all like an iPhone. But if you don't have at&t coverage, it sounds like an alternative.

    I agree, i think its ugly and is so much just like any other phone out on the market. I wouldnt buy it even if i had no AT&T coverage. On the other hand, it could be an iPhone killer...i gues...

    Just having that big ugly Verizon logo imprinted on the phone that I would have to look at, would be enough to keep me away from this phone.

    Why not?

    How about some support behind these blanket statements?

    The OS looks like the standard Verizon one....the front screen looks like only shortcuts.

    If this is true, then iPhone and this are in different worlds.

    There are goods and bads to both phones...I'm going with the voyager for the EVDO network, Verizon network, and full qwerty keyboard. Can't imagine texting all that I text on the iphone.

    The iPhone isn't perfect but texting on the virtual kb is a joy.

    While true, Verizon's OS is horrid....terrible. All you reasons you want the Voyager are fine, but iPhone/AT&T can keep up with it, or pass it.
    Verizon's standard OS can NOT keep up with the iPhone's OS

    Yeah, so I watched the video of the LG Voyager and, while it has a lot of nice hardware features that trump the iPhone, the reviewer lost me on TV Out.

    "And if you're wondering what this is here, this is the antenna for the TV. Because the Voyager is mediaflow-enabled and compatible with Verizon's V-Cast MobileTV service."

    What?! This is why I prefer the iPhone, and am willing to pay the price I do with AT&T. I get these features handled by Apple rather than upstream from Verizon and then applied in a confusing package name with extra charges.

    No thanks.

    looks like you have at least another 4.5 years of needing to be on a network that works in your parents home town.

    Reason being is when you go to college you will still be spending around 3 months a year at home and you will want to have a working phone those 3 months.

    That 4.5 year term was based on you being a Senior in HS right now and 4 years of college It will go up based on where you are on in HS right now and how long you plan on being in college (also assumes you are going to college)


    I had the joys of having to find a network that work well in my hometown and great in college. You might have to do what I did and switch carriers because Verizon does not work where you go to school.

    i am a sophomore in hs right now:-(. I am most likely going to UW in Seattle so service will be no prob there. also...just an update. I looked on the ATT site and they just put a tower up in the last week or so. Trying to persuade my parents to switch... then its iPhone time.

    but do not forget like I pointed out you need service that will work both at your school and your hometown while you are in college. Sucks but it is something you need to think about. When you need service in both places it can really limit your choices on companies. ATT more than likely where be in home town in the next few years.

    Verizon while in some ways is annoying is a good company. A large factor in why my family switch is because verizon does not work where I attend school so numbers where being switch over as the contracts where expiring.
