Verizon Wireless Blitz


Thanks to the popularity of text messaging, cell phones with QWERTY keyboards aren't confined to just smartphones anymore. Following the footsteps of handsets like the LG Rumor, the Verizon Wireless Blitz (made by UTStarcom) is what the industry is...

The Verizon Wireless Blitz has a vibrant display, a cute and compact shape, and an excellent QWERTY keyboard. Call quality was good as well

The Verizon Wireless Blitz does not have EV-DO, and even though you have access to V Cast Music, you can't download songs over the air

Despite its lack of high speed data connection, the Verizon Wireless Blitz is a great phone for messaging fanatics.

Verizon Wireless Blitz


Verizon Wireless's new Blitz is an inexpensive, effective little texting and e-mailing phone for kids. It's limited, and a bit toylike, but that may be just what a text-happy tween needs.

Available as a prepaid option. Full keyboard. Rhapsody-compatible

SMS interface is bare-bones, lacks threading. Poor camera

If you're a texter who can't commit to a wireless contract, the Blitz is the way to go.

UTStarcom Blitz


At first glance, the Verizon Blitz looks more like a toy than a cell phone. Really, if there was a cell phone specifically designed for young, new texters, the Blitz would be a shoe-in. Slide up the display to see a full QWERTY keyboard that's built...

Verizon Wireless Blitz Review


The Verizon Wireless Blitz, manufactured by UTStarcom/Pantec, is a peculiar looking device targeted to kids and pre-teens as a combination phone and messaging unit. Its primary competition comes from the Samsung Alias and the more expensive LG enV2, as...

Verizon Wireless Blitz


It might be geared toward a younger crowd, but the price and features of the Verizon Blitz speak volumes to anyone.

Building on the success of the LG enV2, Verizon Wireless has introduced its multimedia-capable cell phone, the Blitz. Priced accordingly at $69.99, the Verizon Wireless Blitz is a text-messaging specialist. For those guys who are sick of having to text...

UTStarcom Blitz


It is hard to go wrong with a cell phone named the UT Starcom Blitz! This messaging phone is unique in its own way. It is unique in its shape and in its look. It features a landscape display which is very becoming to the eye, and a QWERTY keyboard that...

Awesome form factor ; Great for texting ; QWERTY keyboard

Speakerphone isn't very good quality

There are more positive points to say about the UT Starcom Blitz than negative. If you are presently shopping around for a new cell phone for your everyday needs, you might want to give the Blitz a closer look. This messaging phone is also affordable...

Consumer review by: cow.fudge (

Exactly what I wanted


I wanted a basic qwerty phone for texting and that's exactly what this phone is. I've had it for 2 months now and I'm very happy with it so far.

Big screen ; Very easy to use ; GREAT keyboard

The mobile browser is pretty bad. I can't imagine using it for anything other than a quick google search
