    Look, I have been reading this thread since DAY ONE. DAY ONE! That's since June 11th. On top of that, I've been using an E815 since the very week it was released, which was in August 2005 if memory serves correctly. Few people on this entire WEBSITE have been following this thread as long as I have and have a phone as dated as I do, but there has been NOTHING in VZW's lineup for almost 5 years that has interested me. However, I am not about to whine and beg people to post pics when doing so will get them or their friends in trouble or fired from their job. Not only does that screw up someone's life over a dumb pic of a phone that'll be out in a month, but it'll screw us when it comes time for the next leak - that person won't be there to leak information and graphics to us anymore. So let's be a little respectful, here. Surely, if a guy that has been following this intently for almost 4 months and has had the same phone for over 4 years can have patience, a bunch of guys who just heard of this phone a week or two ago and just joined in this thread can do so.

    SO BACK ON TOPIC! Preferably without the whining, complaining and redundant redundant questions.


    I used the E815 for three years and was lured into the prospect of the Dare last summer. While its not a bad phone, I've grown really tired of it. VZW's current lineup is terrible, but I keep telling myself that by February I will hopefully have a smartphone that I desire (Sholes or Pre) without being on AT&T's terrible network.

    Dude you need to get a life and quit treating this like a social networking site.

    I am the exact situation as you (minus the E815). I picked up a Dare in the summer of 07' (content with the nice 3.2mp and touchscreen...sort of) and now with all these new phones I'm sick of its crippled abilities, especially not having some sort app store as opposed to phones on other networks. I'm really looking forward to the Sholes, hoping it will be somewhat of breakthrough for Verizon. Maybe then they'll realize the nice profit they would make from being a little more "open minded" with phones.

Not to mention the awful VZW UI (I was really hoping TouchWiz would run a little deeper than the homescreen), the terrible haptic feedback, the AWFUL red non-multitasking music player, the incredibly slow browser...30 seconds with that phone was all I needed to decide that I never wanted to touch or even see it again. It was that unpleasant to me.

    I've never even moderately enjoyed a Samsung phone, so I should have seen it coming. The only phones I've seen that are worse are Lucky Goldstar products. I've always been a Moto guy, and this could seriously be the winner - Moto reception and sound quality, METAL build, potentially complete absence of all things VZW and still on the VZW network...I'll still piss and moan about the data plan, but now that I have a decent job I can afford it.
    Well that sucks that it did not work out.

    You know I always wondered why you were interested in it. I mean reading through the Rouge topics I was like "Why would an E815 devotee upgrade to a Samsung?" Just seemed a little out of place.

    Well hopefully the Tao will meet with your satisfactions. I just wish I could be as enthusiastic about this phone as the majority of the topic.

    Some awesome info in this thread, but so far my favorite detail mentioned would be the metal like a V3C body! I've used my old Razr like a weapon on more than one occasion and it's been a tank. Thanks for the pictures guys!!

    Hopefully this Moto's going to be enough to keep me from moving to ATT. I've had a new 3G touch for about 2 weeks and I can't praise the thing enough. Come on, Moto, pull through!

    Midnight is subjective to where the person lives.

    What are the buttons at the bottom?

    Clear/back
    Home
    Search (phone or internet)
    Menu?

    I don't know... I would have rather have button for:

    Home
    Dialer
    Call start
    Call End

    Thanks for the photo though.
