    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    I got this new phone yesterday. My old one was 6 years old, so I'm pretty happy with this new one, called the Verizon Blitz. Has an MP3 player and everything. Anyway, I put a lot of music on it and was going to plug in my headphones, but it appears to have some stupid special size which I assume means I'm forced to buy Verizon headphones.

    Secondly, I want to plug this into the port on my truck's CD player. Does anyone know if you can get such an adapter from Verizon or am I going to have to solder something up?

    does your phone have bluetooth? I know the newer phone with bluetooth, and MP3 players allow you to use bluetooth headphones to listen to music. Just make sure that the phone supports A2DP and you should be good to go

    How do you like the Blitz?

    I've always hated the slider phones - but that thing is neat. Our contract is up next month and we're always negotiating new phones for next to nothing in cost. I was looking around and that caught my eye.

    And yes, the Blitz is bluetooth capable. A 2.5mm audio jack (if that answers your question) The Blitz has support for Bluetooth headsets, stereo headsets and car kits - http://www.mobiletechreview.com/phones/Verizon-Blitz.htm

    I didn't know it had a GPS in it....I'm assuming that costs extra?

    My mom has the Blitz and loves it. It is a great phone.

    The GPS is dependent on your plan. Unlimited- you get it..... 100-1000 min You have to get a subscription

    Amazingly - my other GPS doesn't require a service fee.

    Thanks!!
