Excerpt: ive had the venus for a year now and have been let down by its slow unconsistant performance. the paint has chipped, the charger doesnt fit well, the touch display works only half the time, and the zoom stopped working on the camera. should have gotten the dare
Excerpt: PROS: looks cool touch screen camera takes pretty nice pics CONS: the "silver" coating came off within a month the touch screen will lock and repeat the touch screen sound over and over it now freezes during every text i write and I have to wait for it to shut down on its own 2 min later even on...
Excerpt: This is by far the worst phone verizon has ever come out with. Its extremely slow even with the upgrade. It takes forever to send and receive text messages. The sides chip like its nothing, the whole sliding top portion comes loose and eventually falls off, the buttons are SO slow and takes a year...
Excerpt: This phone is the biggest piece of crap I have ever spent money on! 1. The sides chip off and it now looks terrible and the screen is scratched beyond belief. 2. Now for the second time my phone will not call anyone or text anyone yet I have perfect service. It says CALL FAILED!!! TRY AGAIN.
Excerpt: I bought the this phone about six months ago and I honestly wished that I hadn't. For the first month I had no issues with the phone I loved it. It was great for me because I love having my music and phone together so i don't have to carry my ipod with me all the time.
Pros: great for music lovers and pictures are great quality
Continued problems, slider loose and screen not responsive

Excerpt: Had phone for 30 days-had to ret because of peeling frame and screen not reponding. After the second phone screen came loose from base and finally fell off the base and tape broke. Out of luck, even though phone is warranty for a year. Verizon will not replace.
Excerpt: so well first of all this phone is ancient so yeah... and second of all it doesnt have querty and its not touch screen. iits like nockoff touch screen. and like seriously this phone is useless... if your ganna buy a non querty, non touch screen phone......
Excerpt: It was a good phone in the beginning playing music, taking pictures, texting, etc. I've not even had this phone for a whole year and it's freezing now. I can't text anything but yes or no. Anything longer than that everything freezes and i have to remove the battery to get back to anything.
Excerpt: I was so excited to get this phone, but quickly learned that it wasn't worth it. Only after three days of having it, it froze the first time and never turned back on. I quickly went through FOUR phones before asking Verizon to replace it with something different.
Excerpt: I am currently on my 3rd venus (am waiting for my 4th to arrive) and have so many problems. As first I LOVED it, it's so cute and stylish, but that quickly changed. The phone freezes right in the middle of a text or call waiting call, to the point of having to remove the battery to get the phone to...
