Cell Phone Crossbody
Perfect for what it is
I LOVE this tiny bag for an evening out or walking around the neighborhood - any time I need just 3 things - my phone, reading glasses and lipstick. I put my ID and iphone (which is in a thin protective case) in the outside pocket and my reading glasses and a lip gloss in the inside pocket. There is just enough room to also add a credit card if you desire, but that's about it. I am back today to look for another pattern because for me it is perfect for its intended use. Thanks again, Vera!

Fits a Galaxy S4 perfectly, BUT...
....only without its protective case. My phone is in a slim wallet case and if this VB crossbody was just 1/2"-3/4" wider and longer, then it would be perfect. I ended up returning it....so disappointed. Almost everyone I know keeps their phone in some kind of case...either protective and/or decorative. Hopefully this product can be redesigned to accommodate phones with their cases (and not just iPhones).

Not what I expected
When I saw this product, I was really excited and purchased five of them - for myself, my daughter, and three granddaughters. The first problem appeared when I got them home and the granddaughters tried theirs on. The strap is not adjustable and therefore did not work on two of the three. Then my daughter's strap broke after a few days using it - she was able to repair it herself since it was at the side of the purse. Mine broke in the middle of the strap after two weeks and I had to return it. The idea is wonderful but the engineering needs much work. Please try again and see if you can come up with a little better design!! I will have to add that there is never a problem in making returns or exchanges with this company. I have bought their products for over twenty years (long before they were all the rage!) and will continue to do so.

Cell Phone Case With A Strap
I really like the ease and simplicity of small crossbody bags that carry the essentials for quick trips to the store, concerts, amusement parks, ball games, etc. so I was super excited when I first saw the Cell Phone Crossbody. Sadly, it is more of a cell phone case with a strap than a small crossbody bag. I think the back pocket with two credit cards slip pockets was added so that ladies would feel like they were getting a small purse that would also hold their cell phone. And while that is true, you can carry credit cards, an ID, and folded cash in the back pocket, you need to be aware that it is only a slip pocket. I personally don't feel comfortable carrying my credit cards, ID, and cash in a pocket that is not securely closed. I really tried to like the bag and told myself that because the back pocket was up against my body, my cards and cash would be fine. But in the end, I left the Cell Phone Crossbody at the store. I knew that if I didn't feel comfortable carrying it, it would have collected dust in my closet.
Another thing that was difficult for me to understand was where to put my keys. Even when I am carrying the barest of essentials, I have to have my keys.
I would have snagged several of these with the logical addition of a zipper to the back pocket and a keychain loop. Just two very small adjustments take this from a glamorized cell phone case to a true crossbody bag. I have to wonder, are these products even tested by actual users before they are produced?

Perfect for carrying phone around the classroom
I'm a teacher and I wanted something to carry only my phone around with me when I'm in the classroom, where I need to have my hands free. I have many alarms set (Recess, Lunch, daily reminders, etc.), and with my phone by my side, I can quickly turn them off without interrupting my teaching. This crossbody works perfectly for that, and has the added benefit of being so pretty. I bought it in Heather because it matches so many colors, but I hope to buy it in one or two other patterns as well.

exactly what I wanted.....but too small
This cute little crossbody is exactly what I've been looking for! But it is too small to fit any of the phones in our household! Why is the iphone the standard that Vera Bradley uses? But we tried my friends iphone and it doesn't fit either! Another inch in both directions would be lovely.

I LOVE this product!
I recently received this gift for Christmas, and I absolutely LOVE it! I have an Iphone, which fits perfectly! All of my cash and my cards are easily accessible, and the inside is lined so your phone will not get wet if the purse does.

Broke the first week
We bought this purse as a gift for our daughter's birthday. Within a few days of using it the chain broke in the middle, causing it to bunch up along the strap. The strap also broke away from the purse, rendering it unusable. I have owned several other Vera Bradley items and have been pleased with them, but this one was a disappointment.
