    What's the difference? Both phones seem to have very similar features. Glyde is the new hotness with a better camera and larger screen but is over $100 more expensive. I've had great luck with Samsung phones but haven't heard a whole lot about the glyde. Is it a cheap POS or is the Dare just overpriced right now because it's new?

    i've read that the touch screen on the glyde is very unresponsive at times...sometimes it will light up like you touched it, but nothing will actually happen

    if this is true, i wouldnt take the chance...but i like the design of the glyde more. i wish the dare had a slide out keyboard too

    Yeah, Voyager impressed me more than the Dare, if only because it has a keyboard. I text a lot, and the on-screen keyboard on the Dare just doesn't cut it. Try one out for yourself, but it just isn't my cup of tea.

    I also tried the Glyde out, but was seriously more impressed with the Voyager. I'd recommend giving it a try. I ended up buying it and really like it.

    the voyager is just an EnV1 with a touchscreen on the front. get the EnV2 if you want a keyboard

    I wasn't impressed with the env2's keyboard at all, was very awkward to use, the keys are tiny, and I kept hitting wrong buttons, especially with and around the arrow keys.

    i just got the voyager today and so far i like it. it's replacing a moto Q. i have to have a real keyboard, and have pretty big fingers. the voyager has a larger keyboard than the glyde and env2. The voyager and env2 are on sale now, too. got mine for 50 bucks.

    Blackberry 8830 is always a good choice, but verizon's mandatory blackberry plan is ridiculous

    There I fixed it for you. I currently have the EnV1 and really want a Dare when I can upgrade here in a few months.
