The phone also has a dedicated shutter button for the 2.0 megapixel camera with enhanced imaging and video capture, and audible turn-by-turn directions with VZ Navigator(SM) capabilities to locate directions, businesses and other places of interest. The expandable memory of up to 8 GB via the microSD™ port gives customers the ability to store their favorite songs and pictures on their phones.
