Review: LG Chocolate Touch
The send key at the bottom of the phone brings up a list of all your calls. At the very bottom of the screen are buttons that bring up the dial pad, contacts list, or options menu.
You can go straight to the dial pad if you press the phone icon from the Chocolate Touch's home screen. When in the dial pad, you have quick access to the recent calls log and your contacts. There is a big software button that lets dial a call via voice. I had good luck with voice dialing, and the Chocolate Touch confirms the number with you before it dials.
When in a call, there are six options listed on the in-call screen to open up the dial pad, your contacts list, the Bluetooth menu and several others. It is nice to have such easy access to these other features during a call.

The contacts application looks more like something you're used to seeing from Verizon. The top of the contacts application has a large button labeled "Contact List". As with the calling app, pressing it opens a drop-down menu, which includes shortcuts to favorites, groups, speed dials and your ICE (in case of emergency) contact. It is interesting to note that when in the contacts app, you almost always have access to your ICE contacts. I guess LG/Verizon want to be sure you're always able to reach someone in an emergency.
You can choose to search through your contacts by typing their name into a search bar. The Chocolate Touch improves a bit upon the Dare by allowing the device to auto-sort through your contacts as you type. It will start sorting with the first letter you type.
Contacts can hold multiple numbers, email addresses, and fax numbers. You can also set them up to have picture IDs, specific ringtones, and the usual custom stuff.
