    Pix aren't out yet.

    And the one pictured in the link is the Accolade, or, yes, the vx5600.

    FAIL FAIL FAIL.
    The $9.99 plan is for 3G phones, um-kay, if this is a 1x phone, then it won't be required. Good guess though.

    I'm hearing Spring on this phone, so that would be April-June. It's not listed on the Feb-March rebate form.

    Well good job Verizon, now I will have to eat my words and spit them out in a gooey mass on my own shoes. Bravo... At least my bar form factor theory still holds up...
    Figuring out the new Chocolate Touch..

    The VX-8370 is simply an upgrade from the VX-8360. My guess based on the 8300, 8350, and 8360 is that this will continue that lineup of phone and be a flip phone.

    At this point I think LG is going to have a dilemma on their hands. If it releases and turns out to be just another flip with 2 MP camera, QVGA screen, and simple WAP browser, who is going to be willing to shell out $9.99/mo for data on it? Unless Verizon makes data optional on the VX-8370, the Accolade will sell far better.
    A phone is only fun when you can modify it anyway you please.

    The Verizon UI....unhackable? I think not

    Not sure if this means anything or not, but I notice that the 8360 has moved to Verizon's "Clearance" page.

    The VX8370 is now listed in the LG Updater program with firmware V02.

    Looks like the VX8370 passed the FCC yesterday, but nothing new here:

    Thank you for the info/updates, FAUguy

    Here's an interesting comment which appears to have come from an employee at a Verizon store:

    http://www.phonearena.com/htmls/Firs...e-a_10562.html

    speaking with an lg rep yesterday they are not releasing [the VX8370] until vzw takes the data plan off the lg [VX8360]. they are furious with vzw because they put the data requirment on that phone and it stopped selling almost immidately. So unless this phone doesnt require a data plan, lg is going to hold out any more flip phones being sold to vzw... i hope in this case lg wins so as a sales rep i dont sound foolish telling our paying customers to pay more for a standard flip!

    Yes, I saw that comment.
    I'm not sure if that is true or not, but I do find it silly to be force to pay $9.99 for data on phones that have such limited web browsers.

    It's kind of like this....why get an enhanced media phone and be forced to pay $9.99/month for limited data, when you can get a smartphone and unlimited data for $30/month.

    Motorola made the same argument and won. Verizon lifted the data requirement for the Motorola Entice.

    I think Verizon needs to publish a clear set of guidelines for what distinguishes an "3G Multimedia Phone" and a basic feature phone.

    Considering data plans for all phones are now the same cost for unlimited, the mandate should only be for QWERTY keyboard phones and ones with HTML browsers.
