Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's blue backlit control pad, which features adjustable brightness. Meanwhile, the top right side of the unit houses an antenna while the USB-capable data and charging port is housed on the unit's bottom edge. There's a standard jack to accept universal hands-free headsets on the left side of the handset.
The VX7000's built-in address book can store up to 500 contacts for quick and easy management of phone numbers and email addresses. The phone comes with 20 built-in polyphonic ringtones plus a vibrating alert. Voice activated dialing makes calling your friends, family and associates as easy as saying their names. There's also support for three-way conference calling support. The speed dialing feature allows you to dial up to 99 numbers virtually instantaneously. A built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear and the VX7000's GPS location technology pinpoints your exact location when you dial 911.
Messaging, Internet and Tools
The VX7000 features cutting edge support for mobile-to-email video messaging, which allows you to send video clips captured by the phone to email accounts using Apple's Quicktime video codec. Instant messaging, as well as MMS messages that can contain text and pictures, are also supported. When used in combination with the phone's built-in camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun. T9 text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.
Getting on the Internet anywhere is easy with the VX7000, as well. Verizon's optional Mobile Web package allows you to read and send e-mails, exchange instant messages and view your favorite web content on your phone. You can check your e-mail, trade stocks online, compare prices while shopping, access flight information, get movie listings and find directions to the theater.
Verizon's Get It Now wireless download service is also fully compatible with the VX7000. This pay-per-download service features application downloads, games and productivity tools. You can also personalize your handset with ringtone downloads and digital photo-sharing tools using the Get It Now service.
The VX7000 ships with a calendar and scheduler, a voice memo application with up to 4 minutes of record time, and a notepad. An alarm clock, calculator and world clock are also included, as is the very handy restaurant tip calculator. Never dine without it!
Imaging and Entertainment
The VX7000 is a digital imaging and mobile video powerhouse. The 640 x 480 camera features a digital zoom, color effects controls (normal, antique, black and white, negative), a rotating lens for self-portraits and white balance adjustment. The camera can be set to one of three quality levels (low, medium, high) and there's also a shutter self timer. The built-in flash with night mode makes it easier to get quality shots in low-light situations. The VX7000's video department allows it to capture up to 31 15-second video clips in Quicktime format.
LG didn't forget to include support for gaming on the VX7000. The phone is BREW enabled, meaning it supports games written on the BREW platform and many games are available via the Get It Now service. The phone also features customizable fonts and built-in screen backgrounds so you can make your phone reflect your personality.
