The W755 is an EV-DO phone, so not surprisingly, the Mobile Web browser and subsequent Mobile Web text pages load in a wink, usually less than five seconds. Verizon's numbered menu pages for its varying text offerings loaded in two seconds, for instance. Home pages and text articles for CNN, the Wall Street Journal and USA Today content all loaded in four to five seconds.

Verizon Wireless' top menu for its VCAST Video service takes five-to-six seconds to load, but succeeding branded video content menu page load times were dependent, it seemed, on their source. ESPN's video menu list loaded in two seconds or less, while NBC's menus took twice that time.

Video clip load times also were six-to-seven seconds, only somewhat dependent on length of the clip. A 1:30 minute ESPN Sports Center clip took six seconds to buffer, for instance, while a 7-plus minute NBC Mobile news clip took only six-seven seconds to load.

You don't get a whole lot of customization options, but then I didn't expect you would. You can pick any picture as your own home screen wallpaper, choose from five "display themes" (Classic, Youth, Headlines, Chrome and Vapor, which is the default, all of which change the Menu pages), choose from 21 included ring/alert tones, and you can change the four navigation options on the up/down/left/right toggle.
