Our in-depth review of Verizon's sophomore messaging phone. It's as good at photos as it is at email. read review ›
love the env
i bought this phone about 3 months ago, i love it. cameras awesome, good music quality, nothing bad to say. and about making your own ringtones: all you need to do is record a sound using "my sounds" and send it to yourself. then when u recieve it, you hit options and click "save as ringtone". hope this helps!
I love this phone!!!! There is basically nothing I have negative to say about the en V I got from Verizon. Great sound, awesome pics, easy to use, love the keyboard. I could go on and on. I had the Cherry Chocolate and hated that after 2 days and returned it for this. So glad I did!!!! If you text alot, you'll love this phone!

Ok, when I first heard this phone was being released, I waited everyday until I could get my hands onto one. After owning one of Verizons best non PDA phones, the lg 9800, I felt the standards were set very high. Finally the day came when I was able to obtain the 9900 and here are my pros and cons when comparing it to the 9800.
MUCH better camera
Thinner and weighs less
60 Min record time ability
Space buttons on both ends of keyboard
Call, End, and Clear buttons on front
MP3 Player format
UI- is horrible, I am not a fan of the coloring and there are not cool options for multiple UI like the lg 8300.
Keypad design, I know they made the top 2 buttons easy to reach but when the phone is in your hand it flips out oddly and I much prefer the flip out style of the 9800.
Outside buttons and too close together and hard to txt unlike the 9800.
Overall, I still rate this phone slightly over the 9800 due to the camera and thinness, but was expecting a little more from the phone. Hopefully the next upgrade will also include a better internet brower for actual internet also!
I would first like to say that I really like this phone and for the price it is even that much better. It is better then any phone I have ever had with Verizon. Obviously there are some proz and conz so here they are.
-Nice vibrant screens inside and out.
-Keyboard is pretty well organized.
-The versatility of using the phone closed and flipped open is nice.
-Speakerphone is amazing but can't be used while closed.
-Reception and call quality are great.
-Bluetooth, color schemes, internet, texting are all very nice once you get the hang of using them.
-My k button already doesn't work sometimes after using it for a week.
-The phone parts and keys seem a little cheap and plastic, I have scraped the plastic already without even doing much to it.
-Phone is pretty big.
This is a very good Verizon phone, It fits me well as I am an avid texter. I like making my own wallpapers and ringtones so the bluetooth connection with my computer is money. This phone is econmical, talented, and user friendly. It's a good buy for anyone especially a text maniac.
best phone ever
best phone i've ever had
2nd Version even better than the first
This is an upgrade for me from the previous V (9800)
My only real complaint with the 9800 was that it was a little clunky.
The 9900 has fixed that. Even though it is a little taller and wider it is a lot thinner.
great sound, just like the last one
display appears to be brighter and smoother than the 9800 display.
Navigator is already on phone and the test run I did with it was good. It is close enough for driving. (haven't tried a walking trip yet)
Verizon changed the UI. (To be perfectly honest though, i didn't care much about the old UI being red)
New keyboard seems to have a better feel with the more square buttons.
2.0 mega pix camera is a great upgrade (for a camera phone. Lets be honest my 8 megapix camera that I carry in my other pocket will always take better pics)
Camera lens cover is a godsend as the 9800 collected dust big time in the lens
OS seems to be running a little faster than the old one.
Bluetooth seems to be better than original in the sound quality.
UI is very easy to use, even with the new additions to the system.
battery life seems to be a little bit shorter. Will be getting an extended battery if and when they come out.
speaker-phone is ok on volume. (about the same as 9800 it is great in a quiet area, but worthless in a loud area)
micro sd is too small. It is also hard to remove from phone when you program it.
the phone sucks DONT BUY
