New Cell Phone!

I recently renewed my two-year contract with Verizon, and, although I didn't have to, I purchased a new phone. They had a few makes/models to browse, but ultimately I had my heart set on the LG Voyager. This thing is pretty neat. It has a large touch screen with a great user interface on the exterior. The Voyager is fairly sleek -- LG definitely took some cues from the iPhone, but it's no iPhone-killer. Open it up, and you'll find the interior has a full QWERTY keyboard and another large screen (not a touch screen). I decided to try out the Verizon VCast package (1st month is free), so I can surf the web and watch TV with it too! The video quality is much better than anticipated; and traversing web pages is easy, but it would be even easier if the Voyager had the multi-touch feature that the iPhone so seamlessly incorporates. All in all, I like my new toy. Here are a couple pics:

You have to renew your contract when it runs out? That blows...

Nice lookin' phone, though.

No, I didn't have to renew it when the contract ran out. I could have gone month-to-month...with my old phone. It's when you buy a new phone that you are under contract for another 2 years.

Ok, that makes more sense then. The way the first line read, it sounded like you were renewing your contract already, so you figured you'd get a phone while you were at it. :P

Yeah, I don't know what I was thinking when I wrote that first line. ID-10-T error!
