With V Cast Mobile TV, this phone supports live TV broadcasts using MediaFLO technology to deliver full-length television programming from some of the most popular TV channels right to your phone. You'll be able to channel surf with no buffering, take calls without interrupting the program you're watching, and get text reminders for your favorite shows sent straight to your phone.

The V Cast Music service enables you to download songs instantly to your phone, or purchase music through your PC and transfer the files to your phone. If purchased from your phone, you'll receive two copies of the song: a Windows Media Audio Pro Plus format at 64Kbps stereo is sent to your phone, and a Windows Media Audio 9 format at 160Kbps stereo is sent to your account in the V CAST Music online store for downloading to your PC. V Cast Music offers nearly 2 million songs, with more being added all the time.
In addition to the V Cast Music service, this phone is also compatible with Verizon's V CAST Music with Rhapsody, which enables you to access this exclusive digital music service for RealNetworks and for MTV Networks. V CAST Music with Rhapsody delivers unlimited monthly access to music on up to three Rhapsody-compatible mobile phones and players and online on multiple PCs and Web browsers. In addition, customers who purchase music over-the-air are able to download the master copy of the songs or albums to their PCs free of digital rights management (DRM) software that restricts how and where music can be played.

The Motorola Krave ZN4 features two layers of touch--on the interactive clear flip outside and the full touch-screen inside--providing you with one-touch access to your favorite features and services without even opening up the see-through flip cover. With the flip open, you can access the full range of menu options. Live TV can be enjoyed with the flip open or closed in stunning landscape mode on the large, vibrant color display.
The durable flip helps protect the touchscreen underneath, and a prominent side key locks access to the external buttons, preventing accidental use when the phone is in your purse or pocket. You can also make voice dial calls without opening the cover, thanks to the phone's voice-activated dialing feature and dedicated voice recognition key--just speak the name or number you want to call. The phone also features a virtual landscape QWERTY keypad, haptic technology for reassuring sensory feedback when you press a key, conveniently-sized buttons, and direct access to personal email accounts with Verizon's Mobile Email.
The 2.8-inch touchscreen has a 65K color depth and a 240 x 400-pixel resolution, and it modifies its display to 240 x 320 pixels when the flip is closed. The phone has an internal 130 MB memory, which can be expanded via optional MicroSD/MicroSDHC memory cards up to 8 GB in size. The phonebook can store up to 1000 contact entries with fields for up to five numbers and two email addresses per entry. It supports caller groups as well as photo/ringer ID.
Handsfree communication is easy thanks to the integrated speakerphone. This phone also provides Bluetooth wireless connectivity (version 2.0), and includes profiles for communication headset, handsfree car kits, and file transfer. With the A2DP Bluetooth profile, you can stream your music to a pair of compatible Bluetooth stereo headphones. You can connect your laptop (either via Bluetooth or wired USB) and enjoy dial-up networking--surf the Internet, send email, and access files from a server.
The dedicated camera key on Motorola Krave provides quick access to a touch-controlled 2.0 megapixel camera. The accelerometer detects the movement when the phone rotates and changes the display, making it easy to catch landscape and portrait shots, as well as capture and view video. The digital audio player is compatible with MP3, WMA and unprotected AAC/AAC+ formats, and it enables you to create and manage playlists right on the phone.
Stay in touch with friends while you're on the go using SMS text messaging. When used in combination with the phone's built-in still camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun.
