    Hello Everyone,

    I'm reaching out to see if someone can point me in the direction of picking a new phone. I currently own a broken-down LG VX8300. It has served me well!

    As a firefighter, I tend to be rough on phones...but I am looking to upgrade to something more capable, and I like:

    Texting
    Bluetooth
    Turn-by-turn GPS directions (live)
    Internet
    Full Keyboard
    Vibration Feedback
    Camera/Vid

    I've seen the iPhone, Vu, and Instinct...am I headed in the right direction?

    Thanks in advance,

    Maitai

    I too had the old crappy 8300 and I just upgraded the LG Versa by Verizon and I like it a lot, but the phone doesn't have a keyboard you have to buy separate but I got it for free from a rep at th store who had the same phone and bought a new one so didn't need it anymore. However husband got the LG Dare and that is nice as well but no keyboard just the touch pad one. There are not too many phones that will suite all your needs it is a pain looking for one. Good luck and I hope you find what you are looking for.

    They keyboard is included. Not sure where you bought your phone, but they give you the keyboard FREE. If you need another one, then you gotta pay.

    The Voyager from Verizon may be the only choice in your field.

    Most phone aren't going to have a physical keyboard and vibration feedback. Normally, the physical keyboards don't have it at all either. My Wife has the Instinct, and she loves it. Its has a virtual keyboard, with option vibration feedback, and turn by turn GPS that can be set to look just like a vehicle's GPS would be, as far as the view (not sure what its called, but its like your driving in the virtual world)
