I'm sorry, but I beg to differ. In the store, they showed me THREE phones, with the Samsung Intensity being the only one with QWERTY. The saleswoman said it had a 1.3 MP camera (very poor in comparison to just about all other phones, including the old ones we have), no video and costs $129.99 with no rebates. This was on February 7th.

I've since been on the VW site and see a few other flip phones, but still only the Intensity with QWERTY (no eligible for online special promo). The "customer service" rep I spoke with today confirmed this. I only wish your information was correct. Even three choices would be better.

As for AT&T, there are SIX QWERTY phones that do not require data plans with the ability to take video. One of them had the poorer camera, while the other five all had 2.0 or better.

I agree that Verizon has had the best cell service so far, but some of the others are catching up and this is definitely something that's going to hurt them (I hope). In the meantime, we'll limp along with our old devices and hope we're given some better options down the road or that VW's rivals start to compete better.

By the way, I think they should charge more for the better, fancier phones, but not milk their customers monthly on the services. They only require the minimum $9.99 plan, but who's not going to go over that once they start using it even at a minimum? It's simply manipulative on VW's part.

(Gee, I really wish you were right on those phone choices.)
