My maroon enV 2 phone!

I just received my new phone yesterday evening. I have an enV 2, which means texting is now so much easier! I have the maroon version (matches my 93 Volvo 240 classic, hehe).

All the pics in this post are shots I yoinked from the internet. There wasn’t much sense in me taking my own since it’s the same thing.

As you can see, it’s not that big of a phone. But not too small to the point where it’s annoying or hard to use. It’s not much bigger than a regular flip phone. (I had a razr and it’s about the same dimensions, only slightly thicker). And it’s smaller and thinner than the original enV. (And, of course, has more features and can save more texts).

My pink Razr was just fine. A lot of people complained about that phone. I had the v3m version and I didn’t have the issues other people talked about. However, I really wanted a phone with a qwerty keyboard. I’ve been starting to text more and it was tedious to tap the buttons several times for one letter.
My only complaint so far about my phone is really more a complaint about Verizon – which is that their software cripples the phone for Macs. There were more features I could have synced between my Razr and iMac if I had the non-Verizon version. But at least with the Razr, I could sync my contacts through bluetooth. I can’t even do that with the enV 2. I can get my computer to recognize it, but all I can do with it is use my phone’s connection to go on the internet. I can’t sync my contacts through bluetooth and I was hoping I could sync my calendar, but I can’t. That sucks. I like Verizon overall except for their seemingly anti-Mac ways. There might be some hacks that come out eventually, but I haven’t been able to find anything yet. This is probably because the phone is new.

It was between this, the Samsung Alias, or a Moto Q. I’m happy with my choice so far.
If I had ATT&T and more money, I would have just gotten the iPhone, of course.

Edit: June 21, 2008, 12:31 PM – I figured out how to exchange information via bluetooth to my mac. šŸ™‚ Yay. I just found that it’s done differently than with my Razr phone. I can exchange files such as music and photos and I can import or export the contacts by sending a Name Card that will then add to my Address Book. That’s different than syncing it but I’m still glad the option exists. I can send a vCal file for each of my calendar events. When I click on the vCal files, they open up iCal, but iCal won’t recognize it yet. So I just change the .vcs extension to an .ics extension (by simply typing .ics at the end where in place of .vcs) and it works in iCal.
