    Anyone else notice that the 810 is only available as refurbished on TMobile's website today? Good price with their EIP plan - $240 outright or $10/mo - but odd that the new version seems to have disappeared?

    I wonder, are they pulling the plug, or getting ready for something new for us?

    That's strange... Just the other day, I saw the new version as available up there. Maybe it's their way of making way for the Catwalk within the next month or so? Or perhaps they've temporarily run out of stock of new 810s?

    That is odd. Maybe they'll launch an LTE version, hahaha.

    That is weird. I was just looking at the site yesterday. It was 360 new and 240 refurbished. Hopefully jgbstetson is right lol

    I just inquired on the tweeter. Let's see if they answer. It could mean a few things, hopefully that they've simply sold their entire stock and are waiting on more. I feel pretty confident I'll get a bs response in any case.

    Tmobile has no idea when/if they are getting new 810's in. Not sure what to make of this.

    Either their customer service is incompetent or they have something just around the corner. No idea.

    Wow... That's sad because the 810 really is a great phone.

    A refurb at 240 is a steal. I bought it new for about 450.

    Agreed - $240 - ridiculously good price - cheaper than a nexus 4!
    I hope it is just on hiatus because of crazy good sales, or to make room for "the next non-Samsung thing" ;)

    I really think it's temporarily sold out. I mean, they just started to market the red and grey shells. They're not even available at my local tmo corporate store yet.

    They may be pulling the plug. The HTC 8X is no longer for sale on the site either.

    When I go to the website and try to search for the 8x, it goes to the list of all phones. If you try to narrow it down to just HTC phones only the One S is shown. Maybe someone else can find it.

    Front page. You gotta call T-Mobile out for this; it reflects very badly on WP IMO.

    As usual TMO stunt to show some numbers for i5 and coming s4... they should face the reality that getting i5 after end of exclusive period, they can not sell more sets than WP810 or 8x.

    Hope they're only doing this to prepare for the release of the Catwalk. It would be a damn shame if they're just writing off WP8 altogether. Also, I know they're dated by now, but I'm even surprised they removed the Lumia 710 and HTC Radar a few months back. Those phones were available awhile.

    Check tmonews. 810 is being replaced by the 521. 8x is not planned for EOL yet, but possibly could with the catwalk launch (IMO).

    I'm surprised they would do that when the 521 clearly has lower specs. Odd that it would be replacing the 810, which has to be better. (!)

    That's a shame that they pretty much EOL'd the 8X and 810. We've gotten used to HTC carrying a WP from the HD2 days...hell, the Radar and HD7 were around for eons before they got replaced.

    Its sad what they did to the 810. First the accessories were hard to come by for a while, and now it may get bumped by the 521, a lesser phone. They just overpriced it on T-Mobile...i bet if they sold it for $99 on contract or even $49, it would have sold even better.

    The saddest thing about this was seeing a feed on the Nokia FB page about red and white charging shells for the 810, especially since it's easier to find an honest politician right now than the cyan wireless shell.

    you will likely find some inventory in stores. And at $260, a refurb is a really good deal. Casting a shadow over this, though, is that there has been no word from T-Mobile on continued support for this device. It's a pretty awkward time to be a WP user on T-Mobile.

    Keep in mind that if you live in a refarmed area, you have many more choices and may benefit in the long term by using an unbranded device, anyway.
