    Re: LG VX10000 Voyager Review

    Just a few questions about the Voyager:

    1) How is the battery life? I will be using it as an MP3 and a phone so I would hope it could last a full day doing that.

    2) If i downloaded a movie or something could I put it on the phone and watch it?

    Thanks.

    The only advantage that the iPhone has over the Voyager is multi-touch...and songs are cheaper if you are uisng in-house services (which most people won't).

    You didn't even mention the navigation system in the phone, that is a huge feature in my book, and probably many others. Also the buttons on the keyboard are a lot bigger, and also the 2nd display is A LOT bigger than the VX9800 or 9900. Also you don't mention that you can do Multimedia Messaging on the Voyager...and you can't on the iPhone. Also becaue it uses Micro SD cards instead of internal memory, you can potentially carry a lot more songs with you. Also when 16mb and 32mb micro sd cards are released, they will support that as well. Another featrue that the iPhone doesn't have and the Voyager does is Stereo sound, which is weird since the iPhone is a music phone. And you don't even mention the internet usage...it uses Verizon's 3G netowrk, yes there is no Wifi, but who needs it when you have probably the fastest internet you can find on ANY phone. Not to mentions that the clarity of calls is 10x better on verizion than AT&T.

    Yeah iPhone has more talk time, and such, but if you really wanted long talk times you take the free phone that you get with a new contract instead of a Voyager or iPhone.

    I know you gave it a positive reveiw, but I really think you should have added these things in...even if you didn't think they are good features...they are worth mentioning.

    Re: LG VX10000 Voyager Review

    can anybody help me out on this....

    I used bitpim to transfer ringtones to my voyager and the directions made it very easy (thank you)

    but i was wondering if it is possible to transfer games to it. my friend has an enV and she has the game chuzzle on it, but it is no longer offered in the verizon games catalog. I found the folder on her phone and saved all the files for it on my computer, but I dont know where to put them onto my phone to get it work.

    if anybody could help, thatd be great

    thank you.

    Re: LG VX10000 Voyager Review

    I'm an ATT&T customer but REALLY want to get the Voyager. Is there any way I can purchase the phone and use it with my current carrier? If not, will the phone be available to any other carriers soon? I live in south Louisiana and Verizon sucks down here so I really don't want to change just because I want the phone - ha!

    No, the Voyager is a Verizon exclusive, but I don't know why you think that Verizon sucks in Lousiana. I live in Lafayette and it work perfectly, better than any other carrier in my opinion. Best reception out of AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint. But if you really want the Voyager, you will have to switch over to Verizon...and it is worth it.

    Re: LG VX10000 Voyager Review

    I received Voyager yestereday. Used it all day. Physically, the phone is robust. Iphone is sleek and sexy, but Voyager is robust and hearty. Not as thick as you'd think, and fits well in the hand. Fits into a candy bar-sized holster easily, even with the extended battery. It has a nice strong feel. Probably can withstand multiple pavement drops.

    The touch screen is not as sexy as Iphone's (it performs some touch functions that Iphone's UI does, but without the pinching, tapping and pulling. (you can tap on web links with voyager, but no tap zoom, zooming is done by pressing a zoom virtual touch button) You can however, swish the internet browser around, but again not as fluidly as you can on Iphone; there's a thumbnail option that allows you to quickly move around a page.

    The internal screen and keyboard are the selling points to this phone. Once you get a page open on the exterior screen (doing some touching and tapping), you can switch to the internal to type. The pullout keyboard keys are enormous for a mobile phone. This may be the fundamental reason to get the Voyager over Iphone, if you expect to be doing heavy texting and/or heavy e-mailing. Example: I'm typing this on the Voyager. You could never do that on Iphone without giving up at some point, and just using a notebook or desktop.

    The haptic feedback is nice when you are typing or touching virtual buttons, but when you are browsing the internet it can be annoying. There is no shortcut button to turn off the vibration when pulling a web page around. Ultimately, you'll keep the touch buzzing off.

    The speed of the internet connection is not fast. EDGE is slow, but so is 3G on this phone. Iphone is much more responsive once the page is loaded, maneuvering around a page is fast and fluid.

    One problem that I noticed at one point: you cannot browse the internet or perform certain functions while talking on the phone. Another problem that arises at times, is touch lag. When you try to unlock, it takes multiple attempts to unlock. Iphone is very sensitive and responsive to touch functions. Voyager is not as responsive. On Iphone you can blaze through with a swish here and a swish there, not so on Voyager. Lists, like recent calls, etc, require that you pull a virtual scrollbar.

    The sd card is a nice bonus; but really questionably an advantage,when you consider that the music player is not as user-friendly as Itunes. And if you've played with the ipod on the iphone, you'll realize how primitive Verizon's idea of a music player is. Iphone/Itouch have the most revolutionary music player on the market. Vcast works, but it's not the best out there. The VZnavigator is good, but you have to pay for it. No 3 dimensional imaging, but it's way better than some standalone GPS products I've used. If I decide to keep the Voyager, I won't be buying a standalone and just pay the monthly.

    Battery-wise: the extended battery lasts a long time.

    Zero sync ability with Voyager. Cannot load up calendar or contacts to the computer. Not a smartphone, but it does have a notepad function buried in the phone, so you can take notes with it.

    Mobile TV. I subscribed, but for work reasons I'm currently in an area that does not service mobile t.v. Back where I live, I can get service. Mobile t.v. distinguishes Voyager from Iphone, but you can't get service everywhere, only in certain spots.

    The speaker buzzes at high levels. It sounds okay though one or two notches below top volume.

    Voyager will not attract current Iphone users, and will not kill the Iphone. If you want this phone, don't compare it to Iphone. If you were looking for a faster, more consistent browser outside of EDGE, don't get this phone. Iphone users will most likely not get this phone, but instead wait for the 2nd generation Iphone to come out.

    All that said, Voyager is really not a bad phone, but it's not a multi-touch/Iphone-like phone. If you like a good keyboard and you're more of an analog-type person, get this.

    Battery life is pretty good. I use MP3 play, phone, and game all day. The battery is nearly dead at the end of the day (about 14-15 hrs of use).

    You will need a movei converter such as Total Video Converter and convert to 3gp. Quality isn't prefect, but watchable... considering it's on a phone.
    After it's converted, you can store it in the My Vids folder on your SD card.

    I've been using the phone for Internet access a lot, and also Mobile TV and V-Cast Videos. And the phone lasts me 1-2 days depending on how frequent I use Mobile TV (Which seems to burn the battery the most, but it is the best feature on the phone).
