LG Voyager to hit other mobile carriers According to a report in the Electronic Times, the LG Voyager touchscreen phone has been so popular with its current exclusive US carrier, Verizon, that the company is looking to introduce it with other carriers.
Citing an unnamed LG official, the report says the phone's success has been so "surprisingly strong" that AT&T and Sprint versions will be available sometime this year. Despite being limited to only one carrier, the handset has sold over 1.1 million units to date.

There was no word on when this year the new versions will be available or even what changes will be made to the new editions except for the obvious CDMA to GSM network switch for AT&T. For Sprint, the carrier will either need to "launch a broadcast digital TV service or else strip out the MediaFLO TV tuner that would be supported both by AT&T and Verizon's existing network."

Thats nice to know that other carriers may soon get the Voyager, I personally enjoy mine. :-)

Its also good possible news for Plantronics, they have the name "Voyager" trademarked if I remember right, as it means more money for them too.

Does anybody know what type of software I need to put ringtones from my CD's onto my Verizon Voyager phone?
