it's a VERY popular phone. i've been trying to get one for over a month now and have yet to find one. i'm thinking it's a combination between the phone's price and because it's far and away the best device on the carrier at this point (maybe all these early Nov phones will change that though). a lady at Verizon said she would keep an eye on the stock and order it for me when it's back in stock.

Well, I just returned mine on Saturday so there's at least one more in the pool. Battery sucks... haven't had a winmo phone in years and they're still clunky.

i had some glitch with my tp2, and i tried to switch it out with a new one by worry free guarantee, but vzw rep said they don't have tp2 in stock so they will replace mine with imagio.. wtf... vzw... wtf... i need some physical keyboard, not 5 mp camera and tv service...

David im just curious about the glitch you were having with your TP2? The keyboard is a def a nice feature but it adds a lot of bulk to the device. To be honest with you i use the virtual keyboard just as much as the physical one so the Imagio would not be a problem for me. Now when it comes to the Vcast software id say if your not going to use it then just delete it out. Maybe if the Omnia II ever shows up you could go to that over the Imagio because that at least has a flash and a faster processor.

mike, i also understand ur point... but in my concern, virtual keyboard just isn't for me... i've used virtual keyboard with iphone, omnia, dare, 1st gen htc touch... and all those virtual keyboard isn't as good as actual physical keyboard... at least the faster processor sounds very tempting tho...

David i can def understand your concern about the touch screen keyboard. I know i def make more mistakes with the virtual keyboard.

i dont think the tp2 (piece of ****) is overly popular, i think they didnt begin with big inventory of them and they are not able to supply with alot as often as other phones...so its normal demand without as much supply to offset it. SERIOUSLY PEOPLE, JUST GO WITH THE IMAGIO IF YOU CANT WAIT OR WAIT FOR EITHER THE DROID OR O2....THE STORM 2 IS A POS JUST LIKE THIS PHONE!!!!

Kvenderley im just curious how you have come to the conclusion that the TP2 is NOT popular or its a piece of ****? You think they did'nt begin with a big inventory ....well I know for a fact that they didnt have a ton of TP2. The problem is that 1) VZW didnt order enough product (underestimated demand) 2) Every carrier has this device so materials are getting diverted and 3) They could be holding product back because all new devices are going to have WinMo 6.5 (not confirmed just a thought) 4) VZW has so many new devices coming out this quarter (Storm 2 Omnia II Sholes Eris) that i feel that they are wanting customers to go to the Sholes cus there on this silly Android kick.

Im going to go with its popularity more than a (piece of ****) The TP2 is a sweet phone. Im guessing that since everyone is cacthing on that HTC is the #1 PDA manufacturer that isn RIM they are selling faster and more product. Ive had HTC for 5 years. a 4300, 6800, 6850, and now the 6875. I have never had a problem with any of them except running out of memory. As for the battery issues you can fix them by dumping a custom rom into them. RIM doesnt touch a WinMo or Andriod device.
