    It seems like the Lumia 435 might possibly be T-Mobiles's very last Windows Phone?

    I'm thinking that the only reason they haven't dropped it yet is because it has been somewhat successful (or maybe successful enough, to think of it) in the market they are trying to reach. As silly as this might sound, I have noticed that the packaging of this phone has changed from how it was when it first launched.

    Or could it just be they have yet to deplete their stocks? After all Walmart still sold the Lumia 640 for a little while after they officially stopped selling it in their stores and online.

    I agreed with that point until I went to a T-mobile store today. To my surprise, there was a 435 on display with 2 other prepaid phones. As you might imagine, the 435 was turned off :/

    I don't know what it's doing, but to have a display in the store has to count for something, right?

    Was this a corporate store or a third party though? Because I think a third party store will often still have older models.

    It is still listed in Microsoft's own store but phonearena.com lists it as discontinued and there is only refurbished model available on T-Mobile's own website. I mean it's still possible that no more are being produced and they are just selling existing stock.

    I guess it was probably corporate, the only third party shops in my area is WalMart and best buy, along with Costco pretty much

    Well given T-Mobiles history, it's probably going to be discontinued shortly anyway.

    Best Buy has upped the T-Mo Branded 435 to $49.99, still a $20 savings.
