Happened to stop by VZW Store today re: something on my current (broken) phone and the Venus was on sale in the store. I tried to find the answer to this question, but could not since the phone was not yet activated.

Anyway, let's say I have the Venus and someone calls me. Is there an option to answer the call right on speakerphone without sliding the slider up? I am a big user of speakerphone and looking for an LG phone that easy as possible to use speaker. I know some Samsungs have a button on the side to hit and put the call directly on speaker, but I'm hoping this Venus has something similar on the bottom touch screen.

Anyone know?

Forget About Chocolate!

I played with this phone today at my store!
This phone was smooth and slick and amazing!
Touchscreen was great, camera was very fun, and it was really an excellent overall phone!

This phone will make everyone forget that the Chocolate even existed within 6 months!

Voyager Pre-Order

Recent Info from Phone Arena: LG Voyager (VX10000) : 11/8 Pre-Order; 11/21 Launch. Do you really need to pre-order on-line in order to get it as soon as they release it? Can I just go to the store and get it there on the 21st? Has anybody used this pre-order option from Verizon before?.
Thank you

like i said

Embarassed Embarassed

I would be embarrassed to release such a nice phone with a crippled interface.

The iPhone was good for the competition. It inspires the manufacturers to cater to the fancies of the American public.

Now that the technology has advanced sufficiently, lets combine it all into one device and call it the veal chop.

Improvement, but still too Verizon-ish..

I'm not an iPhone user or lover, but since these will inevitably be compared to it, and promoted as the "iPhone Killer" (what a Verizon rep said to me the other day), I have to say, these are no iPhones. Just because you add a touch-screen to a phone, doesn't make it an "iPhone Killer". I think we will see every manufacturer start to come out with integrated touch-screens now that the technology has been developed (evolutionary, maybe).. But Verizon still suffers from their lame, restricted UI's. Although they have jazzed up the icons and menu's (somewhat), the review and pictures still indicate its not as fluid or developed as the iPhone. I think its an improvement by the handset-maker (LG), and I hope we begin seeing many more like th...

pearl 2

Just noticed on the Blackberry site, it says the Pearl 8130 is slightly thinner than the 8100. But on the video here, the guy says it feels a little thicker. It is also heavier than the original. Really looking forward to this phone. I know it's a year old, but pretty much anyone that has it seems to love it, and now we have more features.

Why no pics of the internet on the voyager?

What gives, I wanted to see what it looked like and how you navigated on the web, the review did not really explain this.

10th picture of the Voyager?

I don't understand this picture. It shows 2 pictures of the phone. One is the voyager opened up, and the other looks like the voyager slid up to reveal a keypad. But nowhere have I seen or heard that the phone slides up to reveal a key pad. Am I missing something here? Thanks.

Can sync with outlook? I know this is most likely a resounding "NO" but if it had just a little PDA like functionality to it, I would be all over it.

What is the screen size?

One of the best features of the Iphone is its comparatively huge screen.

What kind of outer screen size is on the outside of this one?

Bigger than the internal one on the vx9800 for instance?
