honestly? why is this even news? phones come and go all the time and most of those phones have been on the market for at least a year or so. this is stupid.

The only real surprise here is the Trance. It has been a great selling phone at my store yet VZW is dropping the device. Yet they still have old devices like the lg-vx5500, BB Curve 8330, and BB9530 still sitting on the rebate. Are you serious? The trance is a great device and I still have plenty of them in stock yet these three dated devices (all have been replaced with new models) haven't been carried in most stores for more than a few months.

Between the Android push at Verizon and lack of advertising this was bound to happen. I am surprised it took this long.
