Verizon runs out of Touch Pro2 inventory?
From the moment that Verizon launched it's version of the HTC Touch Pro2, the handset was destined to become a big seller. The demand for this smartphone is so strong in fact, that those ordering online have been greeted with a "Out of Stock" message. The device is chock full of features from the hi-res 3.6 inch touchscreen, the TouchFLO 3D UI that keeps you away from Windows Mobile, to the physical landscape QWERTY keyboard. And while the phone is also offered by T-Mobile and Sprint, Big Red had a price tag for the unit that was $150 cheaper than what the other two carriers were asking for their model. Has anyone had a problem with the Touch Pro2 being out of stock on any of the carriers?

I bet they got a smaller stock of the TP2 with 6.1 and wanted to wait for 6.5

I'd have to agree. To be honest I don't think they really care about this phone. They didn't feature it on the front page when it first came out and they still haven't, but the Nokia Twist and Rogue are featured.

I ordered one early last week for $159 and got a call on Monday to tell me that they're out of stock nationwide and couldn't give me an ETA on when they would be in stock and was offered the Touch Pro as a replacement.

nope you have to be not moving to really feel it where as the curve i could walk and know if someone called or texted me, but the rest of the phone is great but that little problem with the vibration really bother's me, i got until the 20th of october to decide if i want to keep it.

ya they may be out of stock online, but you can still definitely order it from the customer service side of things. the warehouse for web orders and the warehouse for CS are separate.

They are out of stock at the warehouse too. I've called a few different times because I get different responses from each tech support person. It's funny how they don't even know what the phone is most of the time. One lady tried to sell me a Touch Pro 1 for $150.00 lol. Then another told me that Verizon had discontinued the phone and would not be getting any more in. She later said that she actually did not know when new shipments would be coming. Whats the point of having a decent phone on Verizon if you can't even supply the demand?

I think it's pretty safe to say that Verizon had no idea this phone was going to sell this well. This phone is one helluva phone.

I've had a TP2 for the last 4 weeks from Verizon. i have been asking for a replacement due to a bad earpiece speaker. I was told today that VZW is discontinuing the TP2. The tech guy I spoke with assured me that he SHOULD be able to find me a replacement, but that VZW has made the decision to no longer offer this phone. bummer.
