    I love this phone so much. I am auactully typing this review with the PCD Venture. I used to have the LG Optimus Slider but one time I opened it and the screen flew OFF! WTF. Anyways I wanted a phone with a touchscreen and qwerty keyboard. U get for wat u pay for. I really would recommend it to u but u have to have small hands. The only flaw that I have is that the keyboard sometimes feels cramped. But I already got used to it. I almost never write reviews but this phone is awsome so I had to

    For use only with Virgin Mobile’s Beyond Talk Plan (meaning you pay a set monthly fee rather than topping up every three months), the Venture is an android phone. It uses the Nationwide Sprint 3G Network. It has several apps including Google Maps, GMail, other e-mail, Navigation, Google search, YouTube, News, Weather, and more. It has a QWERTY keyboard as well as an on-screen keyboard. When you buy the Venture it comes with the Venture mobile phone, micro USB cable, battery cover, 2 GB micro SD card (mounted in the device), battery, USB power adapter, and Basics Guide.

    I had problems when I first got this phone and wasn’t sure if I would like it. I charged it per the instructions but I couldn’t activate the phone and had to call Virgin Mobile who were very helpful. Once I got the phone activated I turned it off overnight only to find out it wouldn’t turn on the next day. I recharged the battery and it worked fine until I shut it off overnight – again it wouldn’t turn on in the morning. Finally I removed the battery, reinserted it, recharged it, and leave it on all the time. Now the phone works fine although the battery does wear down fairly quickly (the box says the battery stays charged for up to four hours talk time and up to 300 hours standby time – I think those figures are overly optimistic).

    Now that the battery issue is solved, I really like my Venture phone. For me it is a good introduction to an android phone. I can do a lot of things with it – search the Internet, check my e-mail, take pictures and movies, shop, check Facebook, use a GPS, and more. I can leave verbal messages for myself, write memos to myself, set different ring tones for different people. I like Office Suite – I can read Microsoft office file formats and view PDF files on my phone! While I downloaded and read the User’s Manual I didn’t really need it – using the phone really is intuitive. I’ve had no problems receiving or making phone calls – the sound is clear and I’ve had no dropped calls.

    The Venture may not be for everyone – the short battery life may not be suitable for people who make frequent phone calls or texts. But for someone like me who uses my cell phone infrequently and wants a low monthly payment, no contract phone plan, the Venture is perfect.

    I NEVER write reviews but I feel that this phone is a bit better than everyone is saying so I will try and tell you guys everything I know/like/don’t like about this phone. Ok to start I had an Optimus V and I HATED it kept doing crazy things and the keyboard situation aggravated me every time I used it. So I saw this cute little keyboard phone decided to give it a try and I could bring it back if I didn’t like it. Now I was going to get the Optimus V slider but it was a bit expensive for me. So I will admit that the keyboard is a bit cramped even though I like the size I do push multiple buttons a lot but it doesn’t bother me as much as the V did because it ALWAYS got the word wrong and this I just push the backspace key and type what I wanted to say. Also a con I found is that I can’t see my email it says here is your email but a blank screen comes up which is a bit wierd but oh well i can use a computer for that I guess. But to be honest it looks just like the Optimus V, button and menu wise, must be the android so I really didn’t notice a difference. I did notice some obvious PROS which are more memory ( hated the V for that), slightly faster when it comes to downloading stuff and of course the keyboard! I hate to say it but maybe just get it and try it out first because that is the only way to know if YOU like it because I did see 2 reviews about the phone before i bought it ( only 2 because it was brand new) and they both said it sucked but I was like well it is cute, $99, and has a keyboard lets try it lol. So that is really the only thing I can say is try it but I Love it so far and won’t go back to the V anytime soon.
