I've had this phone for about 1 month. I love the design, the one flick auto open mechanism, the brilliant screen and the user friendly interface. I love this phone.
However, for a few days now it has been shutting down on me and then restarting on its own. Sometimes this happens in a loop; other times the phone hangs altogether. I have to take out the battery to restart. Has this problem occurred to anyone else?
Does this phone connects to universal bluetooth brands ( one of them is Plantronic)
or it is locked by Panasonic only to work with Panasonic's bluetooth?>
And how is the sound quality through the bluetooth on this phone (if anyone tried)
they've stopped making phones for the world and just returned to japan to focus on their FOMA phones... the reason y they did this is unknown...
I have this phone and I have to admit it's a great phone. I love it and I just can't find a reason to dislike it. It has great features, a big bright screen, nice design, etc. People say it's a big phone, but i'm a girl, and I find it perfect. :)
I have found this phone great to use. Exceptional user functionality, great screen, average camera, cool features. If your a hardcore "txter" I found writing texts very easy (I hate using sms lingo). And the best part - I picked this phone up off ebay for $255 (+$60p&h)!!! Cool Phone!!!
I have used many mobile phones in my life so long which are inclusive of Nokia 6260, 6630, 6680, 7610 and Sony Ericsson K700, S700, Z1010 as well as Motorola E398 but all of them palpably differ from this Panasonic phone, VS7. I was aware that most Panasonic phones lack the quality in designs but this one is totally different. My perception changed when seeing the amazing features of this magnificent phone. It really is worth buying since the price is reasonable. Having this phone makes me feel satiated, I did.
I found this phone pretty good, Except if the sound could be a bit bigger. Overall I'm happy with this phone. I can see clearly since the screen is fairly big, the colour is amazing and its alot better then the other flip phones I've had. Plus gotta love the auto-open button... People who get this phone I'm sure they'll enjoy it atleast a bit. Other wise as much as I am.
dont be stupod this design is slick and the reason apple has kept their design is because it sells. I prefer this sleek design and I think the screen is one of the best i've seen so far. First being sharp.
yo YHk1, chill out... panasonic is no longer makin any mobile phones. they closed down all their plants in the philipinnes.
oka, get it? good.
Wtf panasonic!!! Come out with a new phone, and a new design!! This one is getting tired. At least put a little effort into making phones (really, ur phones don't sell themselves), don't be like apple with the ipod and keep copying yourself. Maybe they stopped trying and i just don't know.
...overall the VS7 is an above par phone. But the earpiece as well as the speaker on the back is quiet low. Do you guys have any "hacks" or mods for this phone? than you...
I have owned the VS7 for several months and really like the display and the size. The only thing is the ringing sound is low. Found out that if you set the phone to "outside" mode everything gets BETTER as far as sound goes.
This phone is almost perfect, if this is not released in Sweden I will jump off a bridge Ô_Ô
Seriously though, it seems to have what the previous models did not, such as the MP3-player and the e-mail function. Those were the flaws that made the previous models not work, so this time I'm sure it will sell! I will definitely buy it!! ((but please make one that is as bright in color as the VS3..))

jn}U : no it's not a 3G fone
my friend has this phone and i borrowed it for a few days. i was very impressed with the clear screen and that was about it =/ the phone was quite big compared to many other flip phones out there and feels bulky. i missed calls quite often because i couldn't hear the phone ring (even on loudest setting) voice quality was ok and signal was so so. i don't know if it's all panasonic phones but reception aren't so great with this phone. oh yea battery life sucks =(
