vibrate alarm

I recently picked up the choco 3 and I really like the phone.
I upgraded from a samsung a950 which was a tank and a good phone to use.
One of the gripes i have about the phone is the fact that they left out a vibrate option for the alarms. I could set alarms to vibrate on my a950 but was a little disappointed when I realized I couldn't do it.
Anyone think verizon will add it in a software update?
-ps. choco 3 is still a great phone :]

Bluetooth picture and music transfer?

Just wondering if you can transfer pictures and music via bluetooth? It would be nice if Verizon didn't disable it this time around.

MINOR complaint...but wondering if it's just me.

Not EVERY time I use the front navigation wheel...but about 25 to 30 percent of the time, it doesn't work. I took phone back and got a replacement and this one does it to.
Especially if I get two text messages close together.
That seems to set it off.
Must be a software issue...who would I report it to? The VZW guy seemed less than helpful.

Hands Free

This looks like a good phone... LG has
never let me done. Yet the way I read the
highlights of the phone There is no
jack for a hands free jack.
Did I read it wrong?

Quality Phone

I was the first person to purchase this phone at my local Verizon Wireless store on Sunday morning! Although I have not had ample time to truly "kick the tires" on all functionality (especially music), I am happy to report this is a quality phone.

Excellent color displays inside and out
Terrific sound quality
Love the new user interface -- very intuitive
Micro USB adapter
ICE (in case of emergency) contact set up is an excellent addition

Vibrate mode is a bit weak

This phone is recommended for anyone looking for the latest in flip phones!

FM transmitter

yay! Now I kinda want one.

I used to have the Fusic on Sprint, and absolutely loved that feature (just hated Sprint). Shame you can't unlock vzw phones to work on AT&T.

My parents upgraded to the current slider chocolate about 2 months ago and I don't like it. I love the clamshell and the the light blue one is pretty.(saw the pics on I plan on porting my number to
VZW @ the end of the year and I was considering this phone but I really like the new EnV2.
