The V276, which follows the traditional clamshell form factor, sports a 128 x 128, 65,000-color internal screen. A supplementary, 96 x 32 monochrome screen on the outside of the cover displays incoming call information, signal strength, battery life, current time and more. The VGA camera lens and self-portait mirror is housed above this display. Up/down buttons are placed on the left side for volume control. A five-way selection button above the phone's dial pad is designed to control most of the phone's menus and functions. The phone's extending antenna is placed on the top right side of the unit. A 2.5mm headset jack is provided, as are ports for AC charging and USB data connectivity. The phone ships in a standard black and silver configuration, but optional faceplates are available to dress up the phone's front outer cover and battery cover to suit your fancy.
The V276's speakerphone makes it easy to converse without touching the handset-- a big plus for car users. Enhanced voice dialing supports voice-to-digit dialing and name recognition for speedy dialing of contacts. The V276's voice recognition software supports voice commands from any user, not just a pre-programmed user's voice.
The V276's internal memory can be used to hold up to 500 contacts for quick access to email addresses and phone numbers. In addition to a five vibrating alerts, the phone supports 64-instrument polyphonic ringtones. The phone also allows you to assign ringtones to specific callers so you can know who's calling without having to look at the screen. A number of ringtones come preloaded on the phone and more ringtones can be downloaded from Verizon's Mobile Web service. Perhaps most importantly for users in rural areas, the V276 is a tri-mode phone, meaning it can operate on Verizon's digital network, as well as analog networks that serve many outlying areas. Lastly, the phone's GPS location technology pinpoints your exact location when you dial 911.
Messaging, Internet, and Tools
The V276's support for multimedia messaging means that text and photos can be sent with ease (Verizon messaging charges apply). When used in combination with the phone's built-in camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun. There's also a built-in web browser for Verizon Mobile Web downloads and mobile web browsing. 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. iTap 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.
Verizon's Get It Now wireless download service is also fully compatible with the V276. 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.
A number of handy software tools are bundled with the V276 including a voice memo recorder with up to two minutes of recording time, a calculator, a calendar and an alarm clock.
Imaging and Entertainment
Plenty of good times are built right into the V276. The phone's VGA camera supports resolution adjustment so you can choose the level of detail and memory space you want to use. Images can also be sent to your friends via MMS messaging, use them as a custom wallpaper, or use the phone's USB connection to transfer them to your PC. Embedded screensavers and full screen wallpapers are built-in so you can set up the V276 to suit your tastes. More graphics are available from Verizon's Get It Now service.
The V276 is BREW enabled, meaning it supports games written on the BREW platform. Games are also available via the Get It Now service.
