LG Decoy


This stylish but pricey slider is the first cell phone to integrate a Bluetooth headset.

The LG Decoy is the first phone to include a built-in Bluetooth headset, and the final product is as stylish as it is innovative. We like the bright, colorful screen, speedy Web browsing, built-in GPS, and V CAST Music and Video package. But given the...

LG Decoy


The LG Decoy is an attractive cell phone with its sleek finish, slider design, and bright display. But that's not what makes this cell phone stand out. It's actually the integrated Bluetooth headset that is the real show stopper. The LG Decoy comes...

Review: LG VX8610 Decoy


The LG Decoy for Verizon wireless is one of the most novel cell phones on the market. What makes it so special is its built-in Bluetooth headset that stores away in the back of the phone. Michelle tests it out and gives us the lowdown in her review.

The PIM functions on the Decoy were pretty extensive and include an alarm clock, calculator, tip calculator, calendar, world clock, and a notepad. The phone also supports Verizon's VZ Navigator 4.1.1, which includes the latest enhancements for live...

Decoy Cell Phone


I have had my LG Decoy Cell Phone for one and a half years. My cell phone has been very reliable. It has been dropped, flung, and chewed up by my dog! I left it outside one day, and when I went back outside, my dog had my cellphone in pieces. The...
