    Hey everyone, I’ve had my SmartVP for a while. WOW!! Every week it gets better and better. The staff at Purple is wonderful and for first time, I am having fun with my videophone! Sam who is a manager at Purple is right, once I got my SmartVP, it made me forget I even had SVRS.

    What’s cool about Purple is that you can use your computer to add your friends to your contact book, then the contact book will show on all other devices, like your smartphone, laptop, computer, iPad, SmartVP.
