It's hard to classify the LG Versa, as it really has two personalities. It can be a svelte, touch-based phone that is basically an updated version of the LG Dare, or it can be a not-so-svelte, QWERTY keyboard-equipped messaging device. Having flexibility is nice, but transforming the Versa between its two different personalities is, quite frankly, a pain. This means you're only going to use it one way or the other, and not switch it up all that often. Which raises the question: why have the ability to switch at all?

The phone is brown, not maroon.
When the hell are these companies going to learn???
Just a quick note:
A good review overall. I'm actually one of the ones that enjoys the phone with the keyboard attached, and after you mess with it a bit switching between the two isn't hard.
This phone seems to be the biggest hit with people considering the EnV2/Voyager moreso than those going for the dare, at least in my store. A lot of my older customers are very interested in the phone because they want a touchscreen but don't want to give up a full keyboard. The touchscreen/keyboard makes it much easier for them to navigat...
The worst part about this phone...

AT&T never had one unless it was a PDA until the end of 08.
