The LG Vu CU920 from AT&T is not the hippest touchscreen phone available but it is free when signing a contract. If you want to gift a decent touchscreen phone without paying the $200 you have to pay for the iPhone or Blackberries out there.
This price advantage makes the LG VU CU920 to one of the bestselling phones on Amazon.com and on LetsTalk.Features of the LG Vu CU920 include 3 inch touchscreen, AT&T's MEdiaFLO Live TV service, microSD slot for expandable memory, a full-featured music player, and supports quad-band GSM/UMTS connectivity, 2MP camera, and Bluetooth.
The money you save purchasing the phone you can invest in paying the phone bill for the loved one you gift with the LG Vu CU920. The problem with gifting a mobile phone lies in the follow-up costs of the phone. A phone is only a real gift if the phone bills are covered too - it is your call. For Whom:
A great gift for people who like a state-of-the art phone, but do not need to surf the web a lot and do not ride the iPhone hype.
Messaging and web surfing not as great
Mobile TV works only well with 3G coverage
Where to Buy:
The AT&T LG Vu CU920 is available on Amazon.com and Letstalk for $0.
