LG should be slapped and verizon should be kicked for allowing this silliness to the market! even the reviewer could not help but comment on how awkward holding this retarded phone will be...and snapping it on and off like that, oh yeah that's going to hold up, NOT! We've a plethora of stupid touch screens, God how I hate them- enough already! Make some decent phones! Ever carrier has a better messaging phone than verizon, ugg Sad

I couldn't agree more. What a dreadful, horrible design. Reverse the Versa.

You are both way off base. The reviewer isn't holding the phone right. The proper way to hold it with the qwerty attached is to rest the pit of your hand right on the hinge and actually reach down to hit the keyboard. It's actually quite comfortable. It might be uncomfortable for people with extremely small hands, but those people would be satisfied with the on-screen keyboard and would not have the qwerty installed anyway.

I spent quite a bit of quality time with this device in store today. This phone will not be a failure unless there turns out a major hardware complication with the attached modules. I can't think of a better web and messaging "dumb phone" on the market. It's the best in it's class by far. Don't start complaining until...

There should be no correct way to hold a phone it should just feel right. They are not off base with saying what they want.

So take the iphone and hold it upside down with your thumb and forefinger and then complain that it doesn't work right the way you want to hold it. Rolling Eyes

Gimme a break! There's a WRONG way to hold every phone out there! Almost every device out her has side keys on them, and they are not all in the same place for each model. Some phones have the internal antenna in the top of the flip. Some have them in the base near the hinge. Some bar phones have them on the left and others have them on the right.

Come back when you've got a real argument.

Better messaging phones?

Verizon has always had the best messaging phone.

AT&T never had one unless it was a PDA until the end of 08.
