    Q9m being phased out?

    Forgive me if this has been discussed already.

    I went to my local Verizon store a few days ago to talk to them about my Alltel account being switched over and my phone compatibility. I wanted to make sure my Alltel Q was fully compatible with the Verizon network. I told the guy I was interested in getting a Q9c and he told me that the 9c was an Alltel phone and that I would need to get a 9m. He then said that I should look at getting a different phone cuz the Q series is being phased out. That store didnt have any Q's at all, 9c's or 9m's. He said they're only available online.

    Has anyone heard of this?

    I was looking at that phone. My Q has been so good to me over the past 2 years that I dont wanna replace it but its showing its age. The buttons work when they want and the soft touch keys/directional pad are coming off.

    hey if it aint broke why mess with it
    if it still functions and does what you want and you are happy then i say stick with it

    you can get parts to fix that...

    All carriers are starting to phase them out. Someday they will be a collectable.

    I just got another Q9m (refurb) off the web site. It looked brand new. Seems to work as well as the Q1's and Q9c's we have in service.
