    Q11 for Verizon

    I just tried ordering a Q9 warranty replacement for one of our employees lines at work... and verizon's 800 number told me they don't have any in stock at their 800 number. They also have removed it from Verizon's website. I talked to the local store and they said they're not carrying it anymore.

    Now, I know everybody has mentioned that the Q11 is a GSM phone, but I think that this is a pretty strong indicator that they're going to be releasing a new Q. I mean, they wouldn't stop carrying the product line altogether, right?

    the Q is dead sadly
    the Q11 is only being released abroad

    sorry...
    check out our marketplace/ebay/craigslist if you really want one

    What!?! I love that phone for our sales people. It's such a workhorse... easy to use and dependable. Doesn't require an extra server either (*cough* BES *cough*). Any suggestions on a replacement smartphone?

    i know
    we love the Q and well are pretty upset about it too

    some people are making there way to BB others to the Saga (which is Q like) and the Omnia

    i still have a Q so i cant really make a recommendation
    check around at some of the other threads and see where they are headed...we now have a Saga and Omnia Forum with some pretty good reviews

    good luck:frown:

    The other WM phones are one thing, but call quality and fit and finish is superior on a Motorola phone. IMHO, the only other WM phone that I would consider would be a Palm. Except for the Centro, they are built like tanks. Problem is Verizon doesn't carry them any longer either.
  6. i wouldn't take a free treo.
    I had the 650 and it was trouble.

    the insurance carriers have the 9ms and c's in stock.

    That's interesting... my 650 was a workhorse and my wifes 700wx has been perfect - better in many respects than my Q or BB.

    Having had the Saga for 2 months now and the Q for 2 years prior to that, I would have to say that the Saga call quaility is every bit as good as the Q if not better and the same with the fit/finish/build, whatever you want to call it. Also, since the Saga does not suffer from that annoying screen buzz the Q did, I'd rate it better than the Q, because you can hold it to your ear for the first portion of the phone call.

    Battery life with my extended battery is excellent. Today as an example, I checked email all day long due to being in meetings, did some surfing, did 5-6 calls of 4-5 minutes each, and had BT on and finished the day at 82%.

    As Scott said, you may want to consider the Saga as well. It's very Q like, but better, in my opinion, in a number of regards. The keyboard feel is excellent, weight and one-handed use is no problem, anyone I've showed the optical mouse to has been amazed at the responsiveness and ease of use, etc.

    Have no idea of your needs of course, but given how similar the Saga is to the Q and in many ways superior, it may deserve a strong look from you.

    The Q9n was for government use, and never intended to enter the consumer market.

    Well, I called back to tell them I wanted to replace it with a Saga, and low and behold the other rep told me it turned out they had 2000 replacment Q9s left in stock. So I ended up ordering one of those. The Saga does look like a nice replacement for when the next sales rep phone dies.

    Please trust me when I tell you . . . There will be NO MORE Q's of any "letter" flavor from Motorola. The series has died. Sorry . . . I am too. RIP

    What about the HTC Touch Pro? Has anybody used that phone? I was talking to a Verizon Rep and they said that the Touch was twice as fast as the Saga.
