More compact and lighter in weight, the LG enV2 updates the original enV with a redesign accentuates both sleek style and easy usability. The front of the enV2 now features a numeric keypad with larger keys, and it opens up to reveal a large 2.4-inch LCD and its signature hidden QWERTY keypad–perfect for all your text messaging and email needs. Advanced features like auto text readout, message sort, and the ability to store up to 300 text messages enhance your mobile messaging experience.
It’s compatible with Verizon’s V Cast Music Service, which enables you to purchase songs through your phone and download them via Verizon’s fast EV-DO data network. You’ll also stay on course thanks to the VZ Navigator GPS turn-by-turn direction service. Other features include a 2.0-megapixel camera with video capture capabilities, Bluetooth connectivity for communication headsets and stereo music streaming, microSD memory card expansion (up to 8 GB), and over 5 hours of talk time.
Smaller, slimmer, and sleeker, the enV2 features larger keys on the external keypad for easy dialing.
Verizon Service Options
With support for the EV-DO high-speed data standard, you’ll enjoy fast access to the Internet and Verizon’s multimedia services (additional charges applicable), with average download speeds ranging from 400 to 700 Kbps and peak rates up to 2 Mbps. (Learn more about where EV-DO coverage is offered.) The V Cast Music service enables you to download songs instantly to your phone, or purchase music through your PC and transfer the files to your phone. If purchased from your phone, you’ll receive two copies of the song: a Windows Media Audio Pro Plus format at 64Kbps stereo is sent to your phone, and a Windows Media Audio 9 format at 160Kbps stereo is sent to your account in the V CAST Music online store for downloading to your PC. V Cast Music offers nearly 2 million songs, with more being added all the time.
The V Cast Video service enables you to stream or download video clips to your phone from a variety of news, entertainment, sports, and weather channels, including CNN, ABC News, E!, CBS Sports, The Weather Channel, and VH1.
Getting on the Internet is easy using Verizon’s Mobile Web 2.0 package, which allows you to read and send e-mails, exchange instant messages and view your favorite web content on your phone. Verizon’s Get It Now wireless download service is also fully compatible with this phone. This pay-per-download service features application downloads, games and productivity tools. You can also personalize your handset with ringtone downloads using the Get It Now service.
With this GPS-enabled phone, you’ll be able to access Verizon’s VZ Navigator service (additional charges applicable) for voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions, heads-up alerts, local search of nearly 14 million points of interest in the US (such as landmarks, restaurants and ATMs), and detailed color maps. And Verizon’s Chaperone service lets you easily locate your loved ones from your Verizon Wireless phone or PC in real time. After defining a zone, such as an area designating a school or summer camp, you’ll be sent an alert via text message when the Chaperone handset enters or leaves the zone.

The front of the enV2 has a wide, thin 1.45-inch LCD screen with a 160 x 45-pixel resolution and 262K colors.

The phone lets you match pictures with callers to identify them, and the enV’s voice recognition software supports voice commands from any user, not just a pre-programmed user’s voice. What’s more, many of the phone’s functions can be controlled by the sound of your voice, thanks to advanced voice recognition technology. Text-to-speech technology enables the enV to read emails and text messages to you, if you so desire.

You can easily add new music to your collection while on the go from Verizon’s V Cast Music service and listen to them on the integrated digital audio player, which offers compatibility with MP3, WMA, AAC/AAC+ file formats. You can sync your tunes from your PC (Windows Media Player 11 or higher), as well as create and manage playlists right on the phone. The enV2 can also play video clips from Verizon’s V Cast Video service, and ti’s compatible with WMV, MP4, 3GP, and 3G2 formats.
The enV has all the bases covered when it comes to messaging, too, with support for sending and receiving text, picture, and video messages as well as mobile instant messaging (IM). There’s also a complete e-mail client on the device for POP- and IMAP-based accounts. And of course, the QWERTY keyboard makes it a snap to type your messages. The enV ships with a number of handy tools, including a calendar and a voice memo application. An alarm clock and calculator are also included.
