True. They were second to the market with the PTT. Nextel had a contract with Motorola that gave them exclusivity to the product that Motorola had the patent to. Now the difference is that VZW uses different technology for its PTT than Nextel, and all new technology has bugs. Unfortunately they should not have released it but by reagion instead of all at once as most of the problem is overload.
Also LG is not an offbeat company. They are a subsidary of a very large computer manufacturing company named LOGIC. The reason they tell the customers they are good phones is because most of them own LG phones. There is no great deal... in fact most of those phones cost the same amount or more... it just debends on the model you get.
Now it is true that VZW does not usually impliment products early.... they want to be sure they work. They have the lowest rate of dropped calls and problems of any service provider and they really try not to mess that up by bringing out things before they are ready.
