Pros: Responsive touch screen
full qwerty touch and tactile kepboards

Cons: i truly haven't found anything I would change yet.
Summary: I have had a ton of verizon phones. My friends constantly tease me for switching every month. I have had everything from The Motorola Q to the Alias to every blackberry known to man. I was bored of them all and was looking for a phone that would not only work well but have some fun built into it. I was about to get my third dare, not because it broke but because I was switching back again. Then I signed on to CNET and read about the EnV Touch. It seemed to have everything I wanted from the Dare and everything I liked about the alias.
I went to the store right away, played with it and walked out with it paying full retail. I can say that this is the best verizon phone I have owned thus far. If I want my e-mail (like the blackberry) I just jump onto the web and read it, after adding my inbox to my favorites it is quite easy, if I want to respond with the touch qwerty keyboard I can do that without flipping the device open, if I do however want to reply with a tactile keyboard I can do that as well just by flipping it open. I use twitter and facebook a lot and after saving both my accounts to my favorites on the browser it is very easy to update.
I read on here, before I went to the store, that the device does not have an accelermoter for the touch keyboard, I was thankful to see that is not the case, it does have one and it is very good. There are also all sort of neat little things that not only work well but make sense and are very intuitive user-friendly.
I do not think I will be switching for a long time as I like this phone a lot. I have never written on here but wanted to because these user reviews as well as the CNET review helped me make this decision and I wanted to add my two cents in case it helps someone else.
