Verizon Wireless CDM8950 photos

The Verizon Wireless CDM8950 may look like a basic low-end phone, but it's actually chock full of features like EV-DO, GPS, stereo Bluetooth, and access to Verizon's broadband services like V Cast Music. The best feature, though, is that it's available for free with a contract.
