Verizon Wireless Blitz coming next week?
Last month, we published information on a few phones coming with Verizon Wireless, including the UTStarcom TXT8010. Now, Engadget confirms that it will be available at Wal-Mart on August 8, under the Verizon Wireless Blitz name. It will be offered as an INpulse prepaid phone (expect a low price), but it still looks promising with slider form-factor, hiding a full QWERTY. Features include a 1.3-megapixel camera, VZ Navigator, VCAST Music, microSD slot and stereo Bluetooth. The pictures also show a pretty orange theme.

Reminds me of an old utstarcom handset from verizon. It was a clamshell, cdm-180/pn-218 http://www.phonearena.com/htmls/UTStarcom-CDM-180--PN-218-phone-p_1039.html

This is perfect for me cuz i have the Env and i just wanted to upgrade to something different and affordable. The Env2 is nice but its like the same exact thing but sexier. Everyone has the Voyager now so its not special anymore. LOL and by the time i get it, they will probably have a new one comming nxt yr some time. The Gylde, Moto q, and Palm Treo just suck. And this seems like it might be a winner!!!

i think u mean the Palm Centro. LMAO and yea dey suck. I agree with u on the Env thing. The Env2 is the same shit!!!! and i do alot texting on the front of my Env wen im multi tasking and w.e and the Env2 seems dificult and annoying to do that with. The Voyager and Glyde are nice but think im too clusmy for them...

my first look at it, i thought it was a phone for like 8 year olds. but then i looked into it, and it actually looks like a pretty nice phone. i want a QWERTY keyboard, and i've been between the motorola q9m and this. bit i've heard that the q crashes a lot. so this is toward the top of my list.

I was just looking for the cheapest QWERTY phone I could get on Verizon without a contract extension so that I can save that for the Storm/Thunder. Looks like I'll be hitting up local Wal-marts for this one.

But if it is prepaid, can it be changed over to an existing plan using the ESN number?

By the way, the cost is $99.00. Now that's ph(F)at

Yes you can have it as your new phone on your existing plan iwhtout an extension, as long as it has no contracts attached to it yet. It's not something that Verizon really wanys people to know because it's so much cheaper to go out and get a pre paid phone than to buy one through them, but they can't say no if it's a Verizon phone. I've done it three times before without problem.

It is a post pay and prepaid device. I guess they changed their minds. I just went to the verizon kiosk after I saw this was available online. I wanted to get a feel for it because I wanted it as soon as I saw it but was turned away by the "prepaid only" part. I found at that isn't only prepaid so that was a huge spirit lifter. Also the fact it's 70 bucks when I upgrade. After trying the phone out and sending some texts I fell in love. It is a tad thicker than the Curve, a lot lot shorter and just a tad wider. SO essentially it's a Curve but a slight difference. The slide feels so nice. The outside buttons are very much like Verizon's other phones that aren't smart phones. By that I mean it doesn't have like a mail button or a web button or a browser button unless you set up the hot keys to do that. It's got dedicated music and camera buttons on the right side. The QWERTY board is very nice. The keys are flat but slightly raised. More sensitive and easier to press than I would have guessed. The numbers are very easily distinguishable and a dedicated blue dot button just to the left of the numbers so putting in numbers while texting is very quick and easy. The menus are stereotypical verizon menus with the standard lists and menus but it has a rather interesting orange faced UI mode. Basically this is the phone I have been waiting for. It is a texting machine with a natural qwerty board that has the space bar in the center (not the voyager env etc), it doesn't have a lame windows based or palm based operating system that doesn't feel like a phone anymore, it is smaller and a little more manageable than most smart phones and less bulky I think, especially when closed. I love it so far and bought it online from the apple store in the mall so I could get the rebate immediately and not have to wait 4 weeks for it. Awesome phone...so far.

i have this phone & it's ok but it glitches. whenever i slide my phone closed too fast, it restarts. it's super annoying! other times the screen will just freeze for like 5 minutes & you can't turn it off or make it do ANYTHING.
