    Got a Verizon Voyager tonight.

    Watching Reno911! on it as I type this. It's totally strange and yet I giggle as I was reading this site on the phone before that.

    Scary how far technology has come.

    I'm jealous.

    I can't even watch TV on my TV.

    I got a Voyager in Februrary and it's pretty cool especially since you can make your own ringtones on it. We should txt each other and be phone friends! (Yeah, I am greatly aware of how ghey that sounded.)

    I was thinking about getting the Voyager at the end of the month when my contract runs out. I need a review.

    Just got new phones a few months ago, so it'll be a while before I get a new one :(

    So far it's pretty freakin' sweet. I haven't even begun to dig in to the features of this phone, but I had a RAZR, so pretty much a piece of aluminum foil had more features and battery life than my old phone.

    I like to call it "iPhone minus Cingular" ... except you can't play the guitar on this phone. But it's still sweet, I get "Ooo's" and "Aahh's" from my friends that have seen me with it and it's just the first night.

    Uh dude, you can play Guitar Hero 3 on your phone!!! Download it NOW!!! I've had the Voyager since January or so and enjoy going to work and watching Reno 911, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report all day. Screw work.

    What kind of price plans do they have for the phone? Do they have that Unlimited Any-time for 100 bucks? And how much did the phone set you back?

    Does anybody have two-way video calling?

    I jumped on a plan when they were offering low rates for early adopters, and it's been a friggin' year and I'm still the only person with it. I have never used it.

    I still remember back in 2001 trying to look at the board on my cell phone, it was text only and monochrome - today it looks almost the same on my blackberry as it does on my PC. Amazing how far things have come in 7 years.

    I was watching TV on my phone 2 years ago. It's cool, but watching a postage stamp sized TV that's streaming video is kinda crappy. The technology for that isn't to the point that it's good yet.

    I thought about the voyager but I'll probably get an HTC Touch to replace my Motorola Q once it has outlived its usefulness.
