I got to use this phone for an hour, and here is what I found:

PROS:
+Great looking phone (distinctive glossy blue)
+Large bright internal screen
+Updated Verizon UI (similar to Chocolate 3)
+Slick black theme modernizes the entire menu system
+Phone is very fast and responsive
+Same size as the W755 but better use of space
+Call quality is great & earpiece volume is good
+The touch button vibrations are strong
+Internal keypad is VERY responsive/easy to use
+Lightweight (weighs noticeably less than V3m)
+Manual external keypad lock avoids accidental presses
+Soft touch rubber on the back/ easy to hold
+Large clock on internal & external screen

CONS:
-Unable to read text messages or view missed calls on external scree...

The UI is not as good as on Chocolate 3 because you can not go side to side but have to go back thru the master diagram. The keys are too small and hard to use and have sharp metal edges. Really not worth the wait. The Chocolate 3 is the best clamshell VZW has right now.

I can't decide if I like the Chocolate or the Rapture. I bought the Rapture and it had mediocre reception. I ended up returning it and getting the Chocolate 3 and people are telling me they can hear me a lot more clearly.

The Rapture is just a badass looking phone though. Do you guys think I just got a bad phone? I ordered it like the day it came out. GuyinLACA I would love to hear your opinion on this one.

Also, one more question. I work in the basement in my office. My previous phone, the LG 8700, and the rapture both had some reception down there. I could make short phone calls. The Chocolate 3 seems to have a lot of trouble down there which is exteremely suprising b/c all the reviews compliment its reception...any thoughts on this?...
