Lost my cell phone and am going to use the annual discount for a new one. (5 months short of the NE2 grrrr). I absolutely require video and voice recording for one hour minimum, but have no use for a true smartphone. With Verizon, that narrows my choices to 6 phones, all LG. My priority list is: reception (I live on the boundaries of a tower; with my moto 815 I could get service in two bedrooms, but not the rest of the house) and call clarity. My next highest priority is Macbook Pro / Leopard compatibility. VX8350 VX8550 (the updated 'chocolate') VX8700 VX8800 'Venus' enV2 (not the original enV - voice memo limited to one minute, which is a shame because it supposedly has fantastic reception and the camera has autofocus, which is helpful due to hand shaking caused by nerve damage.) Voyager (but there would have to be a darn good reason seeing as how it's $150+ more than the others.) As I said main priorities are: reception, call clarity, and MBP/10.5 compatibility. All those being equal, I would prefer the 2mp camera versus the 1.3s of the 8350 and 8550. AAC support would be nice (enV2, 8800, and Voyager only). A2DP and AVRC support would be a sweetener (the 8550 and the enV2 lack AVRC). Auto focus camera (Voyager only), but not important enough to justify the Voyager price premium. USB charging would also be nice (8800, Voyager, and 8550). Texting is irrelevant to me, so the qwerty keyboard isn't important. (To paraphrase one of the Boondocks' characters, if it's important enough to contact somebody, call them; texting is communication masturbation.) Thanks in advance for the help and advice.
