    No More Sprint Q9c?

    I periodically check sprint's website to see if they have any new phones out. Did anyone else notice that the Q9c is no longer on the site?

    maybe it's just out of the warehouse?
    In theory, 8 months is a good run for a phone...

    The funny thing is that both the Q and the Q9c were available as of yesterday morning/afternoon. It looks like they may be low in stock on both phones, and they pulled both from the website in the meantime. Hopefully it's just a temporary thing.

    I just bought two 9c's yesterday.. Got them for 150ea with the upgrade. But I bought them over the phone. I am really looking forward as this is the first phone I have ever had that did more than talk.

    Same thing happened to the Treo 755p when the stock was out for a little while. Then it came back later.

    hey all......

    been hanging out on the board for a week while researching WM phones and trying to decide to stay with sprint or go to verizon.

    called sprint today to find out why the q9c wasn't on the website - been on there every day for the past week - and was told they are out of stock with no plans to restock!

    i can't find them at the local sprint stores in dayton or columbus ohio and radio shack doesn't have them either.

    and.......

    is it just my imagination or is sprint cutting way back on their WM phones available? i believe there's a samsung offered but no gps capabilities.......

    what gives!

    thanks! got a lot of good tips-n-tricks to try.... now all i need is a 9c!

    i hope they'll be back. seem like an awesome handheld.... loaded with features and able to do wi-fi w/the mini-sd slot.. very nice.

    weird that there's just not many WM devices left on the sprint site.....

    yeah, i know. funny thing is, i'm doing some consulting work for verizon and am eligible for their employee plan pricing (as in CHEAP!) but...... on sprint, i've got my 22 month contract expiring so that's another $150 off the price of the phone....

    verizon just doesn't seem to be as aggressive in their phone pricing for new contracts. plus, no open gps or WM 6.1 - yet!

    Wild Speculation

    Just a wild guess, but I read a fairly convincing article that Sprint might be the first carrier to offer an Android phone, due to parent companies and agreements and such. Anyway, both Sprint and Motorola are part of the Android alliance, so maybe Sprint is clearing their stock of Moto smartphones to make way for new Android-based Moto phones.

    Like I said, just a wild guess.

    This is not good news, as there are bugs that need worked out in the 6.1 update, I hope we still get a MOL update or 3

    It's possible that they temporarily pulled it from the website in order to upgrade them to 6.1
