    The only complaint that I have heard about this phone is that the buttons can be annoying because they are so sensitive kind of like an ipod.

    I am not sure you are thinking about the right phone. The LG VX8600 does not have touch sensitive buttons, other than the 3 music controls on the front flip. You are thinking about the LG VX8500, the actual Chocolate slider phone.
