Please read my 7/9/12 update.

My fiance and I both have LG Chocolate Touch phones. After nearly 2 years of use, my phone works perfectly, but her internal speaker started to fail, probably the result of too many drops in the driveway, so I replaced her Chocolate with a Pantech Hotshot, primarily due to the lack of basic phone choices (those that don't require a data plan). Out of the box, my first impression was that the candy apple red color looks nice. The touch screen on the Hotshot is the same size as the Chocolate (3.2 inches), but the Hotshot is a bit longer (by about 1/2 inch) and 1/2 the thickness of the Chocolate. It's so thin, in fact, that it's somewhat difficult to hold flat in your hand. I'm hoping a silicon case will add some thickness and make the phone easier to hold. The touch menu of the Hotshot is similar to the Chocolate, but I find myself continually pressing the camera button on front to activate the phone, which it doesn't do. The On/Off button is oddly situated on top of the phone. On receipt, I fully charged the Hotshot and the next day my fiance and I took it into a Verizon store to transfer contact data from the Chocolate to the Hotshot, and for activation. The Hotshot died 1/2 way through the transfer process. Verizon gave it enough of a charge in-store to complete the transfer and activate. We got the phone home and left it on the wall charger overnight. By the next evening, and without any use whatsoever, the phone was showing no bars on the battery indicator. Assuming a defective battery, I contacted Pantech and Amazon for a replacement. Pantech requires return of the old battery before they'll issue a replacement, which is fine if you don't mind being without a phone for 3 weeks.

I love this phone. I replaced my broken chocolate touch with this phone. For someone who doesn't want to spend the money on a data plan, this phone is a perfect fit. This isn't a smart phone, but it is great for someone who wants a touch phone. Good reception, easy to use and very thin and light. It does take a little getting used to if you have never used a touch screen. I wouldn't recommend it for heavy texters. I love that I can use the internet and chck my email with ease. All in all I am very pleased.

I'd love to have an iPhone, but refuse to pay for a data plan. I've had the Pantech Hotshot for a couple of months and have been satisfied with it in most respects.

Things I like:
- It's thin but solid construction
- The touch screen is reasonably good (don't expect iPhone performance it's more like your car's GPS touch sensitivity)
- Decent reception and battery life. I live in a town of 50,000 that has good tower coverage.
- Durable - I put mine through the washing machine and after a day in front of a fan, it came back like new.

Things that annoy:
- The display turns off when the phone is held vertically (how you typically hold it when you're talking on it). Sometimes this happens when I'm texting though. It requires a couple button pushes to bring it back.
- It takes about 30 seconds for the phone to go to sleep and I haven't found the short cut to disengage the touch screen. As a result, sometimes when I drop it in my pocket, i can hear it beeping and have to pull it out to make sure it's not calling someone.
- Battery life is okay, not great.

I wanted a touch screen phone without a data plan and this is the only one that Verizon offers. I've had it about a month now and am VERY happy with it so far. It is one of the lightest and thinnest phones I've seen. People with Iphones are jealous of it in fact. I've had no issues whatsoever and love the touch for texting, although I have to use a stylus because my fingernails seem to get in the way but that's okay. Still easy to text. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that doesn't want a data plan.

Just a word of warning. The Mobile Email does not work on this phone. Apparently they were only installed with a trial version and cannot be updated to the full version. You will be able to use email until the trial is over, then it will be locked. Hope a fix comes out soon or I may have to warranty the phone.

I've had this phone for 2 months. I cannot believe the problems I've had.
1. I've had calls go to voicemail because I cannot get the phone to unlock.
2. Touchscreen is horrible, either does not recognize or says something different than entered.
3. Incoming and outgoing calls are lost due to NO sound at earpiece.
4. Makes calls on it's own without ANY input from you. Yes, you read that right, makes calls by itself!
5. Cycles on and off by itself. (concerned about battery life?) It does this over and over and over.
6. Says that call is working, (timer is working) but cuts off both ends of call.
7. Constant popup apps that it wants you to buy or use. Navigator, voice recognition and others.
8. I ended a call and when I hit "end call" it popped up a map of the middle east. Are you kidding?
9. In the middle of a call I was going to hit end call and somehow was leaving a memo on the phone?
10. Does not play nice with bluetooth earpiece. Tells earpiece "battery low" even when fully charged.
11. I spent an hour in V having the person doing a complete restore to the phone, it did nothing.
12. I've made numerous calls and had the timer showing over 1:00 and not connecting. That's good for minutes used.

How does a phone with so MANY flaws make it into production? I have a new phone in transit (same one because V will not let me change it and I'm locked into a 2 yr contract with this freaking phone). As I am writing this, this phone is sitting on my desk cycling the screen on and off by itself. This phone is a joke.

Update with phone #2
I returned the second phone they sent me for these reasons.
1. It was shutting off phone calls while IN THE MIDDLE of a conversation to PROMOTE AN APP!
2.
