"Decent cell phone for Verizon"3.5 starson by Lilshmar
Pros: Great ringer volume, user friendly, easy access to text messaging, great reception
Cons: Cannot get rid of the Verizon banner on the external LCD, not very customizable, rather large for a flip phone
Summary: I switched from Sprint to Verizon because Verizon gets better reception where I live and travel. Although I like the service, Verizon's phones are not as good as Sprint's. The VX 7000 in my opinion is one of Verizon's better phones (I had a VX6100 and a Samsung 890 for like a day). It has a good ringer and the disco lights are fun, but not for business professionals. It is easy to use and seems suprisingly strong (Mine has been dropped on several occasions). The downfalls of the phone include the fact that the Verizon banner is stuck on the external LCD and unless you know a saavy tech, there is no way of getting it off. The background colors of the phone are permanently red and cannot be changed at all. I think this is more with the Verizon service but you cannot block incoming text messages. The phone is large and boxy for being a flip phone, but it isn't horribly bad. Overall the phone works well and I have yet to have technical issues with it. If you like to customize your phone then this one might not be the one for you, but other than that it is great. Now if Verizon could just get Sanyo phones...
