Faulty screen causes T-Mobile to suspend sales of Nokia 5610 XpressMusic
posted by PhoneArena Team / Nov 11, 2008, 8:48 AM
T-Mobile has temporarily discontinued sales of the Nokia 5610 XpressMusic to address a defective component in some units that may cause the LED display to go blank. Although we believe the issue to be limited to a very small percentage of devices, T-Mobile and Nokia are committed to providing the best customer experience, which is why we are temporarily suspending sales of the device until Nokia has resolved the issue. If a customer has purchased a Nokia 5610 XpressMusic and is experiencing issues with their device, they should contact T-Mobile Customer Care or visit a T-Mobile retail store, to discuss available options.
T-Mobile says you can come down to the store to "discuss available options," but we say keep it - that white LED screen would make a killer flashlight.

Yeah, I guess that's why when I asked a VZW sales rep for a Samsung Glyde, he always asks if I'd like to reconsider to get a different phone. STFU VZW fanboy! What is with VZW customers in this day and age? I didn't know majority of them were such carrier fanboys.

See this article dated Nov 1 on this web site: EngadgetMobile is reporting that a Verizon Customer Call Center has received information about the Samsung Glyde being pulled from store shelves. The "issue", as its worded, is not defined, but makes us wonder if it has to do with the problems related to the touch-screen. If you are experiencing problems with your Glyde, or it is currently in for service, they will exchange it for an enV2, or another similar-priced phone at the managers discretion. However, one employee in the know reported on HowardForums that this is only related to the Mid-West market, saying that it was a switching issue between some Glydes and switching equipment used in the Midwest. *UPDATE* We received word from Samsung PR stating that, according to them, the Glyde is still for sale in all areas of the US. However, in contradiction, our Verizon insider (VZW E) said that he was told by Quality Assurance "the Glyde was not pulled for switching problems after all it was pulled strictly as an executive decision due to its high return rates and complaints from customers." Keep in mind that each region has their own executives to decide which devices to stop selling if there are customer complaints. The samsung glyde is still being displayed in my local vzw store in the mall, but if I ask a sales guy for one, I get "we're temporarily out of those... would you like to consider a different phone?" So yeah guess you're right, they haven't pulled it, it's just not available.....

yea verizon is great....if you like using outdated technology the truth is that CDMA is obsolete in most parts of the civilized world and is therefore doomed.Most of the world(Europe included) use GSM phones as the standard. So is doesnt matter is VZW is good or not its going to fail in the end so stop hating on the companies that will not fail
