    the Motorola v710 is supposed to be coming out very soon. Upgradable memory, Mp3 player, Speaker phone, Blue Tooth, 1.2 MP camera with flash,and a 3 min Video Camera. And most importantly it's supposed to be a really good phone from what I've read and heard.

    Yup, I agree with millero...

    It'll be the Moto v710 which is due out really soon...

    Currently it's the LG vx7000 which will be outdated by both the v710 & the LG vx8000 which is supposed to come out early next year I believe...(except the lg vx8000 looks like a really huge honking phone)

    check out www.phonescoop.com for the latest info.

    Damn the V710 looks fucking PIMP. The bluetooth headset looks awsome... ive always thought they should ahve something like that, phone in pocket, ear piece on and no fucking cord. I am waiting for that to come out on an Mp3 player so you dont have that annoying cord for the headphones.

    Whats the expected price on that biatch?

    I have seen them on Ebay going for as high as $800 without a contract. I was looking at that phone so I will wait and see what verizon has it for when it is actually out.

    "Soon" is vague... got anything more definite than that? One month? Two?

    No longer than a month if it's not out already on the east coast. They've started plastering the ads for the moto v710 in all the mags now so it should be set for retail in about 2 weeks to a month now.

    A VZW sales rep told me that the Moto V710 should be available in IL by August.

    Does anybody have "insider" news about the following phones: Audiovox 9900 & LG VX8000? (like availability, etc.)

    V710, I was told at the end of this month, but since it's close to the end, I'm guessing early next month. The 8000 I was told is coming in September.

    how much will the v710 be with a contract with verizon? i'm not a big fan of the 7000 since it looks too squarish.

    I am undecided as to weather I should wait for the V710 or just get the samsung 670 since my current phone is falling apart.

    opted for a kyrocera "phantom" until my contract is up. it was $125 w/o a contract extension and is only a mild piece of crap.

    i would seriously consider the treo 600 on vzn if it weren't so expensive
