    My Phone:
    Motorola E815
    Wireless Provider(s):
    I'm in the process of changing phones.
    I've narrowed it down to these two phones.
    I'm kinda leading towards the VX10.

    Anyone have any experiences with the two ?

    Radio Shack has the VX10 for $69.00 starting 9/29 (With $50 trade in of old phone) $119 without,
    where as the VX1 is $169 (Not sure if the trade in plan applys to this phone).

    T-Mobil is a Great company to deal with,(When was the last time anyone had their plan upgraded in the middle of a contract) unfortunatly their coverage in South Jersey ain't very good.

    The VX1 is a phone with many problems. In fact the problems were in such an amount that LG went and immediately put out the LG-VX10 after it.

    The VX-10 is the solution of all the problems the VX1 had with even more features like the ability to work with Verizon's "Get it Now" service where you can download games/ringtones, etc.

    DO NOT go for the VX1. The VX10 was created to push the VX1 off the market because Verizon has had so many problems with the phone.

    Can you reference that data that supports the claim that the VX10 was "created to push the VX1 off the market?" I'm trying to decide between the two and would love to see some concrete data. Not that I don't trust your statement, but since you're Anonymous and make some claims without any kind of support for them, I'd like to see some outside data to corroborate them.

    Well I've got a VX-1 and (granted I've nothing to compare it to) I don't think it's THAT bad. I love the screen and most of the operations are very logical; the phone also looks good and the RF performance (most important) seems reasonable. I'm still not a fan of LG the company but it was the best 1X phone available when I bought it and I've no regrets.

    The above being said; if you REALLY thought the VX-1 was awful and LG said they created the VX-10 to correct all the problems would you WANT to buy another phone from them? Oh, yeah, we produced and sold a piece of s**t last time but THIS time we got it right? Do you think that, under those circumstances, they'd laugh a lot each time they sold a VX-10? [​IMG]

    to the guy right above me, come on. think before you type.

    Anyways, the VX-10 has everything that that VX-1 has, with the addition of the Get it Now(Brew) feature. Verizon needs more phones with this technology to complete with Sprint's Vision, that's why they're pushing it. Until Oct. 31 I believe, you can purchase the updated VX-10 for 69.99 @ RadioShack with rebates, so why would you pay 150 at a Verizon store to get the Brew-less VX-1, I don't know. Hope this helps.

    The problem for you is that I DO think before I type.

    We can do this the hard way or the easy way. I'll try the latter for now: even though you didn't say anything I'll ask: what was it with what I typed that you disagreed? If you've got any facts to back up your argument please do include them.

    Is there any improvement in ring loudness on the VX10. It seems like the only difference is that it is BREW enabled. The ring loudness is very bad on the VX1. I have a chance to exchange my VX1 for the VX10. Are there any other differences.

    I just got my VX10 yesterday, but ring loudness seems to be just fine to me. So far, so good with this phone!
