I'M SORRY, HOW LONG IS IT GOING TO TAKE FOR VERIZON TO C0ME OUT WITH A GOOD CAMERA PHONE???I'M WAITING FOR THE SAMSUNG A610, BUT BY THE TIME THIS PHONE COMES OUT IT WILL BE OUTDATED...WHEN THEY WERE MAKING UP THIS PHONE, ( AUD 8900), WHY NOT PUT A FULL COLOR OUTSIDE LCD???THE SPEAKER PHONE IS HORRIBLE, IT'S NOT A TRUE SPEAKER PHONE, IT CAN ONLY BE USED WITH THE FLIP OPEN...AND WHO WANTS TO PUT A FLASH ON THE PHONE WHEN THEY ARE TAKING PICS, THAT SOOOOO INCONVENIENT, WHY NOT HAVE IT BUILT IN???I JUST DONT UNDERSTAND VERIZON SOMETIMES...P.S WE SHOULD ALL NOT BUY THIS PHONE AND SHOULD SPREAD THE WORD SO MAYBE VERIZON'S SALES OF THE PHONE WILL BE LOW AND THIS WILL MAKE THEM COME OUT WITH A BETTER ONE SOONER,NOT LIKELY THOUGH...

As a representative in the Verizon Cellular Industry, I would like you to note that the 8900 is NOT made by Verizon Wireless. Audiovox is the maker of this product and therefor their equipment sucks and I could of told you that one. Audiovox is horrible stuff. Just one person's input.

I do agree with you.

I must say though that I am surprised that VZW decided to release this phone before the Samsung A610. I know that both of them were in testing.

i agree. the Audiovox 8900 suck. im still on my 15 day trial period w. verizon. i started with the LG vx6000 and exchanged it for Audiovox when it came out. Im definatly going to switch back to the LG unless verizon comes out with something better.

the lg has better digital reception. the colors are better, the menus are better and it has more functions. the only advantage the audiovox has is probably the size and it doesnt have those cheezy blue yellow green lights on the outside screen.

Evil or Very Mad
Yes....


this phone sucks...

i went to the verizon store to look at the 'verizon 8900' and it sucks my balls.....

i was expecting a better phone... the antenna is a little too tall... the material doesnt seem to durable... its cheap...

i like the screen.. didnt have a problem with that to much.... i also like the rubber stopper behind the hinge.. thats a smart move..

i am going to wait for the moto v810 hopefully that is better! if it isnt im going to pee on verizon

my final opinion:

the verizon 8900 sucks my balls

I disagree. I think it's a fine phone, and probably the best Verizon has to offer at this point (not that that says much Smile ). I agree, the camera isn't great, but to be honest I feel camera phones are a gimmick anyway... if you want good quality pix, get a digital camera. Though still, I've managed to get OK looking pics with this phone... when the room is very bright, that is.

I also have to note that when I transferred pix from my digital camera to the phone via email and used those photos for photo caller ID, they look great.

This phone has a good size, good speakerphone (I've had NO problems with it), and an outer display (which sure as hell is better than the a610's flip-around feature).

It's NOT one of the best phones ava...

First off Audiovox doesn't even make any phones,
and if you work at Verizon, you should already
know that!
The 8xxx phones are made by Hyundai and the
9xxx phones are made by Toshiba.
Audiovox is just the name of the company they
are imported under.
The Toshiba phones are much better quality.
Last year my friend was looking at the 9155 and
8300. He first got the 8300, but exchanged it
for the 9155 and has been quite happy with it.
Hyundai is know for crappy phones.
Since the 9900 is made by Toshiba, it should
be very good.

yes moto v 810 and lg vx7000 at least 4- 5 months away based on when the fcc aproved the id, i think the only thing about the 8900 that is a step down from the LG vx6000 is the main display is only 65k colors, 8900 has many features vx6000 doesnt have, all these 8900 bashers are upset cuz they have the vx6000 and cant upgrade yet =8P, my building i work in is right under a cell cite and my 8900 is always on 5 bars, all my freinds have the vx6000 and quite frequtly there on the extened network or roaming or worse yet they hav eno service (vx6000 not analog capable) so obviusly its a problem with the specific phone, only thing bad about speaker phone is thta it comes from outside speaker. but everyoen entitled to there own opinion. ive had...

I'm with you bling69. I love my 8900, my reception is great and I have had no problems with my phone. I'm not sure why others are putting down this phone with out having used the phone for a long period of time. I think they are just stuck on the Audiovox name. I happen to think Audiovox puts out good cell phones.

YES, VERIZON IS NOT THE MANUFACTURER OF THIS PHONE, BUT THEY TELL THE MANUFACTURER WHAT THEY WANT IN A PHONE AND THE COMPANY MAKES IT. VERIZON PUTS THEIR NAME ON THE PHONE, SO IT IS THEIRS....THEY NEED TO REALLY SIT DOWN AND THINK WHAT CONSUMERS WANT IN A PHONE BEFORE THEY HAVE A COMPANY DESIGN SUCH A PHONE AS THE 8900, BAD ENGINEERING....AGAIN, NO FLASH, NO COLOR OUTSIDE LCD, AND VERY LITTLE CAMERA FUNCTIONS TO CONTROL THE PICTURE...SOME PEOPLE SAY, THIS PHONE HAS GREAT RECEPTION, OF COURSE, ITS A PHONE.....EVERY CELL PHONE SHOULD...BUT WHEN YOU MAKE A PHONE WITH CAMERA FEATURES, MAKE THEM GOOD, NO??????
