A Review????

How the heck can you call this a review when you don't even have an active connection to the wireless provider? I thought this was Phone Scoop???

If you're going to review a product, review it the correct way. This is absolutely atrocious. One of the main differences between this phone and the Voyager is the HTML browser (which the Voyager doesn't have), so wouldn't it be a good idea to review this portion of the phone to allow your readers to decide with all of the information? I guess LG just gives you better kickbacks.

Oh well...I guess I'll get my phone "reviews" from elsewhere.

I can assume the phone was sent to Phonescoop as-is and the lack of connection wasn't this site's problem, it was Verizon's or maybe Samsung. I may be talking out of my ***, but I wouldn't blame Scoop on this one.

Well fine, it may not have been their fault that they didn't a live phone, but they shouldn't call it a review. It should be "impressions" or "tour" or something of that nature. It is clearly not a review.

We were given a very short time to review this phone. You can be assured that everything we mentioned in the review appears just as it would with a fully functional working unit. The fact that the phone was not provisioned correctly when we received it is not our fault. We took the appropriate steps to update and provision the phone, and it was not working properly until this afternoon. While we waited for it to be fixed, we played the hand we were dealt and performed the rest of our usual tests. We will be amending the review later today to update the calling and browser sections now that the phone is operational.

Now that the phone is working properly, we have conducted our full calling, signal and browser tests. Those portions of the review have been updated to reflect the results of our tests.

We wanted to get a review up on launch day, since so many of our readers are (very) early adopters. We certainly tried to get the unit to work 100% (of course) but were a few hours late with that. Sorry.

With that said, we were still able to review - yes "review" - 90% of the phone's functionality, and made it clear which few things we weren't able to offer a final opinion on.

Now that Samsung got it working for us, it's been updated with the parts you mentioned. That was our intention from the start. Sorry if that wasn't stated clearly enough.

Just so you know, the Voyager does have an HTML browser. The differences between the 2, besides the design, is this one doesn't have MobileTV.
