Verizon intros the LG Versa modem smartphone

LG and Verizon Wireless have announced the new LG Versa on Wednesday, which will begin shipping on March 1st.

Short for 'versatility', the Versa will come with different attachments so you could customize the phone to your liking. One of the attachments will include a QWERTY keyboard for everybody who doesn't like typing on a touchscreen.

Other features: 3-inch touchscreen display, 2.0 megapixel camera with face detection, microSD card slot for up to 16GB extra memory, 2.5mm headset jack Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, EV-DO Rev. A, drawing pad, Flash support for the full HTML browser and of course, a built-in accelerometer, why not?

This smartphone is also compatible with Verizon's Mobile Broadband Connect, which allows you to use your phone as a modem when connected to a laptop. Unfortunately, Mobile Broadband Connect costs $60 / month and is limited to just 5GB.

As stated, the LG Versa will be available from Verizon starting March 1st for $199 with a 2-year contract after a $50 mail-in rebate.

Looks classy, but I don't know if I want to spend that much just to have a modem. At 60 bucks a month, I expect it to not be a 5gb cap on the bandwidth, that sucks!

Nice phone . But my comment is or Question is ...When Verizon is going to
replace the LGVX8700 Great " Flip Phone". I can't wait.

This is some BULL! When is VERIZON going to get the IPHONE or something very similar. I'm sick and tired of them putting out BULLSHIT phones!!! I have been with them before they were VERIZON only because their network is great! I have had AT&T(my employer's phone) and their service SUCKS! I have to admit though that they have the BEST phones for their service to SUCK! VERIZON needs to step it up more than a notch!!! The BB Storm isn't all what I expected so I returned it. I'm very unhappy about their phone selection!

Laura, you do realise you can hack you iPhone to run on other networks. I've been on T-Mobile for months.

by Melissa on Mar 3, 2009

I dont know...the phones kinda weird looking. I want everything on my phone, I dont want to walk around with attachments for it.

JR: Yes you can get an unlocked Iphone, but a lot of features do not work with other providers. Ive got verizon because they have awesome service. No other provider gave me service in my basement where my room is, except verizon, full bars. I just wish they came out with better phones. I really want an iphone too..but im not switching to some sucky service to get it.
Verizon does need to kick it up a notch and produce phones that resemble the kind of of service they provide, ...incredible.

hey, this phone looks really good and im thinking about getting it

by Mike on Mar 4, 2009

Hey as far as Verizon ever getting the iphone or anything as good...it ain't happening. Verizon had first grab at the iphone and did NOT want it. Thats when AT&T stepped. in. Smart move. The iphone is great and I know a few people that left Verizon just so they can get it.

by hj on Mar 4, 2009

Actually, there is a contract in the works to get the IPhone on the Verizon network. They expect to have it for customers by Christmas of 09.

by TR on Mar 4, 2009

I agree Verizon phones, suck....I have called on numerous occasions to discuss this, no results.

by SDuncan on Mar 4, 2009

I got my Versa two days ago, and so far I love it. I was very nervous about the detahcable keyboard feature, but, I love it. It also doubles as a protective carrying case, in the event you drop it. So far, nothing negative to say about it!

by Anonymous Coward on Mar 5, 2009

hey my sis got this fone and i think that it is so stupid and it doesnt work and i really hope that verizon wud get the i phone

by Taylor on Mar 5, 2009

JR, I want an Iphone but verizon doesnt have one. I can get an Iphone and still have the verizon network? Like I would get a monthly bill from Verizon? or Alltell?

by allie on Mar 5, 2009

ok really all of you whinners need to freakin shut up. if you hate verizon so much just go to a different company. if verizon made the iphone to there would be no point to having different companys you have to have variety all the phone companys cant have the same phones. wow. stop complaining. nobody cares

by JR on Mar 5, 2009

I don't know how the iPhone is sold now, but when I got it, I only bought the phone, without the contract.

There are several ways to hacking the phone and it doesn't void the warranty because it's all done via software, so if you mess it up, you can always restore it.

There were a couple of cases where people got their phones bricked, but if you do it right, you can get it hacked easily. I'm not saying anymore, Google it :) Good luck!

iphone wannabe... will never stack up. You'd have to be stupid to blow $200 on this thing.

by cris on Mar 5, 2009

the phone is cool and all but its to expenive

by kelly on Apr 4, 2009

Verizon phones do not suck! i have the voyager phone and all my friends and other people say that they love it! and i love the touch screen and full keyboard it comes in handy since i text alot. so dont say that verizon phones suck. because they dont.

Hey all you babies. this phone is quite neat and I bought a couple months ago. Although it is not the iphone or a smartphone, i can vouch that it is probably one of the best phones Verison has right now. It will be improved over time with updates and attachments but for right now im sticking with it. The only complaint I have about it is the camera could have been a better megapixel, but it doesn't affect the phone. Overall, the phone is set up nicely and it may not be an iphone, but it has features which mimic the iphones interface.

theres no such thing as a iphone killer verizon fucked up big apple went to verizon first witht the iphone but verizon passed because iphone refused to use the verizon universal menu that they want on all there phones so apple went to at&t and they signed a 5 year contract so theres no chance untill atleast 2012

I just got the lg versa today and it is amazing..yah it is awkward with the keyboard but u get used 2 it. it has so much to it! the front of it with the keyboard on is the ugliest thing in the world.. but apparently they are going to come out with different ones soon! i would recommend this phone to anyone who texts a lot. i do agree with the pricing..there is absolutely no reason why phones cost so much these days. I got this phone because my env 2 broke and i was eligible for an upgrade b.c i had it for 18 months, and it ended up being $293 but i got a $70 mail in rebate. When i called in and asked when i first got their they said it was going 2 be $200..well so much for that!

by Ashley on Jun 2, 2009

I love this phone.
I think it's pretty amazing, I love the full keyboard,
and I'm with verizon,
so I'm pretty excited.

by kelly on Oct 15, 2009

i love this phone it is so amazing i can believe it...

by brigett on Oct 18, 2009

so is this a smartphone then? like yeah..if i just got the lg versa!?

by mr. timmy on Jan 7, 2010

u guys are all F-ed in the head if u think this phone sucks, I freaking LOVE it best phone EVER. The ONLY bad thing about it is the 60$ a month for 5Gb of internet!

by meeeev on Apr 9, 2010

this phone is amazing, i just ordered it and it should be here tomarrow... YAY. i just don't see why you people can only think about the freakin iPhone, i mean, yea iPhones are okaaaay but it's not the only phone on the planet. what's so great about it??? i've used people's iPhones and actually I enjoy my iPod Touch just as much as the iPhone but i find it to be more of a toy than phone. haha, i just don't understand why you can't get over iPhone this and iPhone that... Not to mention, if ya can get actual GOOD service with this phone then PLEASE get over the iPhone thing...

This phone is really terrible & impractical to use as a cell phone.
