Wow, I was looking up reviews on this phone, and clearly you all talk about how this phone is "made for teenagers" however, I'm not seeing everyone's definition of "teenagers" here, because you are all acting like little kids.
this phone is the s@!t i want it so bad and it appeals to 16 year olds
im 17 and a girl and want this for my xmas present. i originally wanted the dare, but this can fit in my pocket, and i think it IS cute, plus the price is sweeeet, haha o well to what evrybody else thinks. Does anyone know if you can listen to music on it while also doing other things on the phone, at the same time??
I don't see what the big deal is here. I see a lot of posts insulting people who actually like the phone. Who cares? If that's what they like, aren't they entitled to their opinion? The site is full of morons who hate any one who disagrees with their taste. I personally think it's a nice phone. It may not have ALL the features that some phones have but it has enough for me. And I think it's cool looking. That's my two cents. Thank you post #19.
it is the best phone in the world turst me im 15 i no things.
turst me yeah u know alot of things but do u know how to spell
I just received my Blitz by FedEx. I've only used it on a few calls so far, but what I can say about it is that it is VERY easy to use. It is simple - no bells and whistles, but I think it is cute and different. The speaker sounds fine, the rings sound fine, the keypad is cool and easy to use and I like it overall. One thing that makes me wonder about it's integrity is when it is slid open and you use the upper keypad the two sections of the phone sort of rock againt each other a tiny bit - like it has a loose feeling sliding mechanism. I just hope it will hodl up over time. Who knows - I'm not disappointed though, but it doesn't take something fancy to please me.
Why is everyone getting so worked up over a phone? Who cares what it looks like? If you dont like it so what someone else out there does. Just go be happy with ur own phone. Half of you say a bunch of things to put down the phone just so you can be like others. Some of you people are followers that dont want to try something different. To the people that like the phone go buy it. Who cares what others think.
Well said, very well said. ** applause **

So I just got this phone a few days ago and I like it pretty well so far. I'm not sixteen, I'm 21, but I am a girl so that's probably why I like the look of it. I'm a big texter and IMer so I like the keypad and that you can get on most major im things. I know a lot of phones can do that but this was more in the price range I was looking for. I would've loved to have gotten the Voyager but it was a little too much. I have had a few small problems with it though. I bought a few songs on my old phone and transferred them over. The license was messed up so I had to call customer service, but they were able to get it working. Also, the audio was skipping just a little bit, but I haven't called about that yet, but my blue tooth works awesome with it so I'm not concerned. This is my first phone with a QWERTY keyboard and I'm completely addicted. I check email a lot, too, so the big screen and easy to press keys make it super easy on the go. I can actually see the words on the screen now :). Finally, they don't have a lot of cases available for the phone yet. Because of the odd shape it doesn't fit the typical cases. I want one that stays on as opposes to just a carrier because I'm a phone dropper. Overall though I'm satisfied with my choice and chose it above the env2 because of the reasons everyone has mentioned (on the con side).
I got this phone yesterday and I *really* like it and I'm 31... :) I'm not a techno junkie who needs all the bells and whistles. It does everything I need and want it to do and I think its super cute.
thats just super
For those of you who claim to be VZW employees, you should be ashamed of yourselves venting your frustration, anger and profanity on this blog. If you hate your employer that much, and don't believe in the technology they are releasing, FIND A NEW JOB!!!!!. I AM NOT an employee, ONLY a customer, HOWEVER, if this is the mentality and maturity level of VZW employees, I think I will take my business elsewhere. I was simply looking for customer reviews on the Envy2 and the Glyde, but based on everything I have read above, I doubt I want to do business with you any longer!
go to sprint
what is wrong with everybody?! this phone is the shit! It isnt ugly anywayz so i dont know what half of you are talking about, AND LOOKS DONT MATTER! I have had the same phone for 3 years and it is waaaaaay uglier then the Blitz (which im getting tomorrow) an it still works fine! I have dropped it everywhere and it works like when i first got it. Looks have nothing to do with it (Unless your talking about the EnV2 wich is craaazy ugly) if it works and does what you want it to do, its a great phone!
This is a Great Phone It like a miniaturize Blackberry 4 kids
Its simple- if you're a heavy texter (like me), want a keyboard, and a phone that isn't terribly expensive, this is it.
Just got the phone, I love it, its small to fit in my pocket, easy to use and text. I hate to see phone attached to your belt, or pocket, I need a phone to fit in my pocket for work.
Why do they say its for teens, I'm 31 and love the phone. I guess I'm still a kid at heart.
its amazing what technology does to people

wow....... this phone looks like bull crap! its one of the ugliest phones ou there! it looks like a little toy u wud by for your son at toys r us!
When I first saw the phone on the web site, I thought it looked like a toy too. But yesterday I went to the store and it actually looks pretty cool. It looks like a cool phone that people would want. I wish it came in different colors though...
Also, if you have bigger hands, you can text one handed. With most other qwerty keyboards, you can't do that.
Just a note, I purchased this phone recently, and threw my razor away.It isnt a terrible looking phone, but that is not why I bought it. I the world of cell phones and cell phone technology, this phone has proven to run with the big dogs. The screen is large but not overwhelming, keys are just big enough for people to use comfortably, even with big hands, and there is almost zero lag when switching from application to application. The internet on this phone is fast and very functional (thanks verizon), and the call quality is top notch, even in low signal areas. Overall this is a great phone for teens and adults alike. The calendar makes it function very similar to a pda as well, making this an acceptable alternative to a blackberry for business people that dont need 8 million features. This is a great all around phone, and I've enjoyed using it.
The phone is the best phone every every other cell phone out there stinks like the Mv one that is trurly the worst phone ever.
I like it! Does anyone know if you can listen to music on it while also doing other things on the phone, at the same time??
well i just got this phone from my dad and everyone at my high school thinks it awesome and cute. im 16. my cousin, who is 21 has th same damn phone and he likes it too for the texting capabilities.
i like this phone its cute and fits in my pocket i want it!!
so if u hate this phone so much go trash it where people actually care!!! hater its sooooo cuteeeeeee!
Ugly???? I don't understand those comments at all! I love this phone. The bigger screen makes reading texts easier. I prefer it over the smaller phones, they get on my nerves. Seriously. The fisher Price comment cracked me up though. Bwahahaaha!
When you forward a message or resend a message does it put your signature on twice too?

I have this phone and love it. Its not ugly--its unique. What other phone is blue, square and slides? Everyone loves it that I know. It's not ugly. I've had it for over a year, and unlike most others, am not sick of it and wouldn't trade it yet.
