    Hi guys, I have the VX9800 because at the time, I was told that this was the only phone that would do what I wanted but I hate it!

    My main requirements at the time were:

    Verizon network
    Bluetooth
    Data capable
    NO fliphone

    Well, since then, I have decided to forego the data option if I have to but my 9800 does NOT deliver on the Bluetooth. Mine is unusable for me and I’ve tried 6 different headsets from 3 different manufacturers.

    I have now given up and want a new phone.

    Also, I cannot hear the ringer on the 9800 when it’s in my pocket and I have the music on and this is because the speakers are on the inside. My coworkers Razr can wake the dead and this is what I want.

    Another issue I didn’t think of is that the text is so small that when someone calls me, I CANNOT see WHO it is. I tried to circumvent this by taking pictures of the few people that call me but the damn picture is SO small because of all the other crap that’s left on the screen that I STILL can’t see it!

    My NEW requirements are:

    Verizon
    NO fliphone
    Bluetooth (latest version, maybe that’ll work better..)
    LOUD ringer
    LARGE fonts on the screen so I can see WHO is calling me.
    Preferrably 500 or more contacts
    Nice if I can use with the navigator program
    I really do not want the PDA type phones as the buttons are usually very small but I CAN live with one if it has big screen buttons and does everything else I want..
    The price is not really an issue

    I do NOT need (so I don’t care if it has it):

    Video
    Mp3
    Camera

    Thanks for any help and if you send any info, please send link to pictures of the phone if you have and above all, if YOU have it, I wouldn’t mind a picture of the screen with incoming call info so I can see the size.

    George

    It's a FLIP phone bro. Don't want a flip phone.

    I DID look at the chocolate but it was a pain to navigate with that screen I thought :(

    Thanks

    Ah, hummm.. 90% of verizon phones are flip phones. Your only other option is something like the Q or Pocket PC XV6700
