    What's the lowest price I'll find a v70 for. It needs to be unlocked and without a contract.

    Additionally, what's everyone's feeling on the v70. Is it a really nice phone? Or is it mor of a hassle due to the mechanisms. Is it fun, easy to use, tell me your attitudes. The reviews on phonescoop seemed to say it left something to be desired.

    My brother works for T-Mobile and he said that the V70 is basically just a V60 in different packaging. He said while the screen looks kinda cool, its really hard to see during the day. For the most part, he said while it looks cool as a phone, its not worth the price.

    RIT,

    I have seen and was allowed to use the V70 for a day. My impression of the phone is just like MCF said in response to your post. It's a V60 in a different box.

    I didn't care for the small buttons, made it very hard to get used to. (Using the phone for a longer period would allow for adaptation)

    The contrasting screen is a nice thing, but it was hard to read. Especially because the text size is sooo small.

    The swivel feature is also a nice look, but it didn't feel right against my ear when it was in use.

    All in all, I don't think the phone is worth it's price tag. I would recommend you wait until the price becomes a lot for justifiable. Until that time I would settle for a V60

    The least you'll get a V70 for, unlocked and without a contract, is maybe $400.

    Is it worth it? Hell no.

    at amazon.com there is a promotion that will get you the v70 for free, it just has some kind of rebate and credit to your bill

    Yeah, and that Amazon deal is with a contract. Not even Amazon is giving that phone away free w/out a contract.
