Soon to be the owner of a LG VX9800 - The V cellphone
I will soon be a cell phone owner. I've gotten carrier approval (Yay!) and they'll be shipping me the phone, the LG VX9800 - The V, in a few days. I should have played with this model more while at the store, but I was too busy testing the BlackBerry 7130c/7250 phone I thought I would be getting. As it turns out, the BlackBerry would have been more than twice as expensive in the long run and about the same in the short run. On the plus side, this phone is a lot more "phoneish" and flips open for a full keyboard. Yum. :-)

And tomorrow I start car shopping, cause the deal is I'm not getting one without the other.

Current Mood: giddy giddy
Current Music: None

That's a helluva nice phone.

Oh yes. My only criteria for a phone was to have a full QWERTY keyboard and anything else was just gravy. It just so happens that the least-expensive QWERTY phone also happens to have plenty of really nice features.

The down side is that it is going to cost 150$ even after the instant rebates and two-year contract. The upside, though, is that there's a mail-in rebate I can send in after four months. I just have to keep track of that information and remember to send it in.
