Excerpt: I only gave this phone a 2.5 rating because of the features. Other than that, I have had the battery replaced 3x. Whenever I charge it completety, turn it off maybe one hour, then turn it back on, it's dead. I'm going to see if I can get the phone replaced before I totally give up on it.

Excerpt: **I KNOW PEOPLE DON'T LIKE READING LONG REVIEWS, BUT IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING BUYING THIS PHONE PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS.** Ok. I got this phone, thinking "oh, cool, I've got a touch screen phone, it works, and it looks pretty darn cool.

Excerpt: Well, I got this phone in February 2008 for my 13th birthday, and I was in love with it when i got it. The only problem about the Venus is that the touchscreen is un-responsive at points, but other times it works great. It's amazing for texting, and the pictures aren't that bad either!
Excerpt: I first got this phone about 4 months ago and i loved it..... until..........................it started to freeze every time i texted and the ONLY way to get it to unfreeze was to take the battery out..
Excerpt: Not a bad phone but has some software issues.one is when you take a pic on highest res and try to save to phone it reboots or you get a garbled picture. battery life average,if your a text junkie forget it keys to small bluetooth always static unless the phone is by your side.
Excerpt: I found this phone beautiful but a real pain to use. After three weeks of accidentally canceling calls while trying to find the right buttons to press, I gave up and went back to my LG VX 4650 - until Verizon comes out with a phone that has the aesthetics of this phone's display but is convenient to...
