    Yeah guess tomorrow I'll hop on over to the nearby Verizon store here in Suburban Chicago to check out this phone and see what it's all about.

    By the way, the Sprint PCS store just 3 minutes away from where I live closed down like 2-3 weeks ago but a new Verizon Wireless store just opened up weeks ago in this same neighborhood.

    VX1 available from website using my zip (95376). No mention of voice-active features.

    Not intended as any sort of a slam, but I truly am glad I did not end up waiting for this phone. My Panasonic Allure gave me the one feature I was looking for -- voice control.

    I agree...I was waiting for this phone for awhile too when it was "supposed" to be released about 8 years ago or whenever it was...

    It's a shame that it lost the voice dialing...i can't imagine having a phone without it anymore, it's practically becoming a standard feature.

    I was waiting for the VX1 also. Finally went with the v60c when they dropped the price to $299. I love the voice dialing feature of the phone because I don't have to put on my reading glasses when I want to make a phone call. (When you hit about 40 years old, you'll understand.) Can't read the number on the external caller ID without the glasses, either. Ah, isn't it great to get old?

    Yeah, I'm planning on hitting 40 for the second time in about 30 years. (I'll NEVER get any older than 40.)

    Yeah, your right guys......I called back and ordered the v60c, as soon as I realized that the LG-VX1 really doesn't have any cool features. It's not even that cool looking, what was I thinking... [​IMG]

    The only thing that I really wanted in a phone is.."Flip style" and small, with 3G voice capable..but I guess I can live with out the 3G untill later.............

    We just recieved the phone today and it really isnt all that amazing, except the darn thing sounds like a game boy. The tones on it are really cool, other than that, its just a 510 with 3g capability and a new body style.

    LOL. Wayne, that reminds me of "ringtone." On my Allure, I recorded Foghorn Leghorn saying: "Pay attention to me boy! I not just talkin' to hear my head roar."

    That phrase is repeated until I answer the phone.

    just got the LG VX1 and the ringer is SO SOFT that I can barely hear it. Also, the browser isn't any faster than my TM 510. Seems like 1X data services are only in you hook up a computer! Lame. I waited for a year for this phone. I'm returning it Monday.

    anyone else notice these issues? thought that maybe i was doing something wrong...

    I have a tm520 (VX1) from Telus in Canada, It has voice dialing, voice memo and call recording.

    Also, the phone sound soft when it's open. When closed, it's almost too loud even at the minimum volume setting.
