Just to sum up some misconceptions:

No the unit does not support AMPS, forced or not, the functionality is not in the handset.

Yes, it supports Voice Dialing, but you must program your contacts first, not like the voice recognition on the v710.

Yes, you can save Picture IDs to contacts, but it's not full-screen like the Samsung 670. You also see the contact info, such as callerID name and number.

Yes, it has an impressive speakerphone, the audio quality of which, in my opinion, exceeds its direct competitors. However, I haven't seen a mode preservation at the end of a call. This may occur if you plug in a VPA, but I haven't tested for that yet.

Oh, and yes the phone will vibrate and ring if you set it to do so in the menu settings.

Does it have most of the features that its korean conterpart has? Taking pics and then zooming in on the already taken picture? I posted some videos of it a while back. I am just wondering if VZW disabled all those cool features

future of cell phones: First there was caller id, then ringtone id, then there was picture id, but now there's video id!

nice, very nice. i imagine they will do the $70 rebate or $100 rebate, i will get the phone. vzw employees get the 2 yr agreement price (no new every 2 thoug) plus the rebates, except we can upgrade every 10 months....

Wow that's expensive. The 7000 looks good enough to me. $110 after rebate.

Not true. Believe me. There's no one at LG that can say when the phone will launch because they don't have TA yet.

Retail might be around 400 bucks, But I have heard the promo price is 250 at launch and will probably have a 50 dollar rebate.

I'm interested in the 2 year contract price that drops it as low as possible. They better hurry because the end of September I need a definite date and price or i'll get the 7000.

There is no way in hell that it will cost $400 under a 2-year plan. That would mean the full
retail would be near $600! I don't think so.
I'm sure wil will cost a lot ($200-$300), but
no one would buy it at $400. As far as the date goes, I would guess Dec-March.

No, there's no Video ID. You can record small MPEGs, but you can't assign them to a contact.

Correction: Once the unit is place in Speakerphone mode, the mode IS preserved at the termination of each call, but not after a power cycle.

Believe me when I say no one has an exact date yet, but if I were to take a stab at it, knowing where in the process it is, I'd say it's about 4 weeks away.

You can zoom in before you take a picture, but you can't zoom in on one that's in your gallery.

That is kind of disappointing! If you can't zoom in like on the Korean version that must mean alot of the stuff featured on the LP3000 will not be on the VX8000. What a shame

Can you make a short video clip of you testing the phone?

CDG, can you use the speakerphone while the phone is closed like you can on the Sanyo phones? or do you have to have the phone open in order to use it?

On the VX8000, the phone has to be open in order for the speakerphone to work...sorry ☚ī¸

this issue could be fixed but blame greedy verizon. instead of walking around with the flip closed on your belt and talking on speaker phone, they want you to buy the damn handsfree set. they did it with the v710 and theyll keep doing it until we bitch enough about it. the v710 is a good phone, but it could be a great phone if verizon didnt lock down all the features. im switchin when my contracts up. verizons in for a rude awakening. sell your stock now cause all of the pissed v710 users are jumpin ship in the near future.

you are right about that,i called motorola when i got the v710 and they told me verizon didnt want the speaker to work with the flip closed i guess thats why none of the speaker phones with verizon work with the flip closed,by the way i returned the v710 not worth the money and in my opinion its a piece of crap.

Any word on the release date yet?

Is there any way someone like me could buy the vx8000? Pretty cool you have access to all of those phones.

thanks

Did you take that video w/ another 8000? Is there more than just one 8000 in that cabinet? If so why so many 8000's? Feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Killa
