Rated 5 out of 5 by Functional90 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nativeblackorean 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 Never Again!
I purchased this phone about 6 months ago and have already had to have it replaced because the touch screen quit working. What is very frustrating is that when the touch screen quits you can not access anything other than your most recent call. When I made the purchase I was never told or given the option of purchasing the keyboard. I would never own another nor would I recommend it to anyone!

Rated 2 out of 5 Expensive Paperweight
This is the worse phone that I have ever owned. I have had the phone since October and now it has decided that it doesn't want me to be able to use the touch screen. So if a number is not in my contacts I cannot call it and since I didn't buy the keyboard I can't text with it either. This phone hase become one of the most expensive paperweights ever. I would never recomend this phone to another person.

I have had This phone for 8 months now,This phone exceeds my expectations.I purchased the optional key pad/cover and would recomend that anyone who has this phone purchase one as well,It keeps the touch screen from coming on when you dont want it to. I would be hard pressed to trade this phone in on another.This phone is a huge improvment over my origanal en v.LG just makes superior products.

Rated 2 out of 5 LG Should Remove this From Its Website
Verizon Wireless no long offers the LG Versa to its customers. It had a very short run with the company, though the promise of longevity was clear when first offered. The phone itself has been a major disappointment. Its web browsing capability is extremely limited. The Versa browses the web at an anemic pace and once there does not offer true html browsing quality. And it is certainly not up-to-date regarding social networking. Forget about Facebook. The attachable qwerty keyboard is good for texting, and texting with pics and video is quite good. But using the talk function of the phone with the attachable keyboard is a bit annoying. Overall, this phone does not make the grade.
