(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.

In addition to the V Cast Music service, this phone is also compatible with Verizon’s V CAST Music with Rhapsody, which enables you to access this exclusive digital music service for RealNetworks and for MTV Networks. V CAST Music with Rhapsody delivers unlimited monthly access to music on up to three Rhapsody-compatible mobile phones and players and online on multiple PCs and Web browsers. In addition, customers who purchase music over-the-air are able to download the master copy of the songs or albums to their PCs free of digital rights management (DRM) software that restricts how and where music can be played.

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.

Verizon’s Mobile eMail gives you access to your Windows Live Hotmail, Yahoo Mail and AOL accounts so you can read, write, and reply. Access your address book, receive e-mail alerts and more, right on your Verizon Wireless phone.

Phone Features
Measuring just 0.5 inches thin and weighing 3.76 ounces, the LG Dare feels lightly comfortable in your pocket. It features a large 3-inch touchscreen that recognizes your handwriting and provides tactile feedback when pressing onscreen buttons or typing on the onscreen QWERTY keyboard. The display has a 240 x 400-pixel resolution and support for 262K colors, and its home screen has several shortcut icons including your messaging inbox, phonebook, favorites menu. The phone provides just three buttons on the bottom of its face for send, end and clearing calls, and it has a stainless steel border along its sides and black soft touch surface on the back.

The phone has an internal 148 MB memory, which can be expanded via optional MicroSD memory cards up to 8 GB in size. It can store up to 1000 contact entries, with fields for five numbers per contact. It connects to your PC via USB, and it offers USB mass storage capabilities.

The 3.2-megapixel camera with Schneider-Kreuznach certified lens offers several resolution options, ranging from 2048 x 1536 pixels to QVGA 320 x 240 pixels–perfect for sending via MMS messaging.

You can also capture video up to 640 x 480 pixels for storing onto a memory card, or QCIF 176 x 144-pixel resolution for sending via MMS. You can record videos up to 120 frames per second (fps) and then play them back on the Dare at a slow motion rate of 15 fps.

This phone provides the latest version of Bluetooth connectivity–version 2.1 + EDR (Enhanced Data Rate), which makes pairing with the included headset as well as other Bluetooth devices a snap.

And with the embedded A2DP Bluetooth profile, you can stream your music to a pair of Bluetooth stereo headphones or other compatible devices.
