Can LG do any better?
There's a problem with this phone. That problem is that LG has not yet been able to surpass it in simplicity, ease of use, or functionality. It was a tease, to offer it for such a short amount of time, and not put out a second version, or anything close to this. I love this phone so much, that I will not upgrade this baby until they make a Versa2, or a VersaDroid.
All I see are slide-out keyboards, or these tiny little buttons at the bottom that you need a magnifying glass to read. As if the size of the keyboard (and buttons) wasn't enough, it has another benefit - a protective case. I don't know what it's made of, but it light-weight, and it protects the phone while in the pocket, and even if it drops. The case, because it wraps around, doesn't feel like one, and best of all, you don't have to remove the phone to make a call.
I don't know how the battery life is with the internet in use (it was a little expensive when I originally bought it), but I know my phone can go for two to four days without a recharge, even with long conversations.
Even after two years, I have the original hardware, with a few nicks on the edges. The only annoying thing is the part that covers the cable, the hard plastic fell off, so the silicone is hard to move, and I need tweezers to rotate it.
To give a background of my family's attitude towards durable goods - my mother is driving a 19 year old car, and refuses to buy a new one until they come out with anything close to what she had.

My Favorite Phone Yet
I absolutely adored this phone. When I first bought this phone I was hoping for a Blackberry Storm as it was the most popularly advertised touch screen phone I could find. However, with the data pack fees, I opted for the LG Versa instead. Of all of the LG phones I have owned in the past, this was by far my favorite. It was very simple to use, and the features were excellent. The touch screen quality was great, the fact that the screen flipped to meet your holding position was fantastic, and the phone's keyboard attachment made it even better. As someone who never liked to text message before, this phone will change your mind. Plus the keyboard has the added benefit of protecting your touch screen when closed. I would definitely recommend this phone to everyone.

Had this phone for a while now and I really like the features available on this phone. It can do many of the things that a smart phone can while keeping the cost of the phone and data plan low.
One of my only gripes is the detachable keyboard. The keys are a bit cramped, and with the cover on, you don't have any other options other than to answer/hang up a call. I wish I could scroll through my recently called numbers using the rocker bar on the side and view them on the outside screen.

Good Phone!! I love it
I have had this phone for almost a year now and I love it. This is a great phone. Easy to use. I have dropped it quite a few times and it still works. I haven't had to get it replaced.
