The VI-125 follows the tried and true clamshell form factor with an internal antenna design that makes it easier to slide the phone in and out of your pocket or purse. The large 128 x 160 color screen features support for 65,000 colors, while a smaller monochrome display on the front cover displays incoming call information, battery and signal strength, the time and date, and more. The phone's center selection button allows you to control the phone's menus and features, and a 2.5 mm headphone jack provides compatibility with most handsfree headsets.
The VI-125's built-in address book allows you to assign up to 200 entries, each storing up to five numbers, for a total phone book capacity of up to 600 numbers, and up to 600 email and Web addresses. You can customize your caller ID by linking a downloaded image or photo to a specific phone number in your phone book. Or, choose from 21 different personalized avatars (animated characters) to assign to specific phone book contacts. Meanwhile, the phone includes 18 melodic ring tones and 12 traditional ring tones, plus a vibrating alert for those times when you want to be discreet. The handy speakerphone makes it easy to talk to callers without having the phone to your ear, while a voice dialing feature makes it possible to call your contacts by simply speaking their names.
The VI-125's GPS location technology pinpoints your exact location when you dial 911 (where available). And, perhaps most importantly for users in rural areas, the VI-125 is a tri-mode phone, meaning it can operate on Sprint's digital PCS network, as well as analog networks that serve many outlying areas.
Messaging, Internet, and Tools
Because the VI-125 supports PCS Vision services, messaging features are robust. You can easily send and receive email, exchange text messages, or join a chat room. Support is built in for instant messaging clients from AOL, MSN and Yahoo!, so you're never out of touch when you can't make a call. PCS Vision mobile Web services also let you check out sports scores, get your seven-day forecast, check your flight status, and stay up to date with the latest news. Experience full-color graphic versions of popular Web sites or purchase and download premium applications, games, ringers, and screensavers to your VI-125. T9 text entry, a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built-into the unit-- a plus for mobile web and messaging users.
A number of handy software tools are bundled with the VI-125, including an alarm clock, a calendar with a scheduler, a calculator (with a tip calculator), and a world clock. You'll also get a voice recorder with up to three minutes of recording time.
Entertainment and Graphics
As mentioned, the VI-125 supports game downloads so you can pass the time while you're on the bus or the train. Meanwhile, you can customize the look of your phone with a selection of themes and skins for the phone's interface.
The LG VI-125 weighs 3.35 ounces and measures 3.53 x 1.76 x .93 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 3.5 hours of digital talk time, and up to 150 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the AMPS 850/CDMA 850/CDMA 1900 frequencies. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.
