2 years and its still ok but i think its time to get a new one
Phone owned for more than a year

I guess its okay but then again ive had it for more than 2 years now... idk im getting a new phone now and I cant wait! This Blitz was my very first phone ever and I loved it. no cases you can buy but its fine without one. I dont really love it, but its ok. It was great when I bought it though, really.

The Blitz Was Just Ok
Phone owned for more than a year

I upgraded to this phone because I thought it would be more durable than a Blackberry or something similar and I just wanted a phone I could text with. I found the Blitz to be a square-shaped phone that could do the job. Had no issues with reception or call quality.

worst phone i have ever owned
Phone owned for

when i first got this phone i used to love its style and look.  since then i have had 3 phones of the same kind because the first time i could not call anyone, would always end my txt messages for no reason, completley blacked out, buttons stopped working, along with other major issues. the same thing happened to my second phone. i still have problems with texting on my 3rd phone. i also lost the back of my phone which i guess was my fault but verizon will not give me another back cover.  im glad that i do not have small fingers because it would be extremly hard to text. unlike blackberrys, this phones lettered buttons are exltremley hard to type anything because it is so flat. i know this sounds stupid but i still cant figure out what the little evelope button does. the camra also sucks because it is disordered when you take a picture. its kind of hard to expain what it looks like. i do not recemend this phone to even a 9 year old.
