    I feel you pain, but I pulled the trigger on Sept 25 and TODAY is 14 days. It is "so AWESOME" that I just can not return it.

    So ... for this thread ... I called Verizon CS and they said ... MANY phone get "retired" and he quoted a iPhone 4S and 5 series ...

    That STILL GET "updates" form Apple !

    So, is this Microsoft's fault with NO CYAN or $!&%R#$ Verizon?

    I was holding out on 8.0 on the off-chance they decided to update us to Cyan soon, but I'm highly tempted to just take the plunge on 8.1 PFD so I can at least get Word Flow and Cortana.

    I just talked to Verizon tech support. They said they had retired the phone "it seemed". But he also said that even though the phone had been retired it would still receive future updates.

    Did he say anything about past updates? Because let's start with those, shall we, before we get to the future ones? :)

    They have until tomorrow at 4 to release further details and yes I am going to talk to the manager I bought it from. I signed up at the end of August so I'm on a metered data plan and everyone has good coverage here in Philly so if I'm going to be ignored it will be on t-mobile and if I'm going to pay a premium ill do it with at&t since both will pay my ETF.
    plus, dat subway tunnel service :|

    I see that MS is dropping the Surface tablet line. MS has no business in hardware. Phone biz will be next.
    "According to a report published on Thursday that cites sources from the upstream supply chain, Microsoft is planning to drop its Surface tablet line"

    Re: Rockinroofer;2806544,
    Please check your facts and site your sources. (This will help us keep track of who is careful with the facts).

    That was proven to be incorrect after it was reported by a few lowly tech blogs...

    Plus I got service at work with AT&T, with Verizon I get one bar and no data. I'm starting to think a Blu Win HD or 830 on T-Mobile could be an interesting proposition.

    I think that report was about Microsoft dropping the ARM based surface RT line not the Intel based Surface Pro. But I digress since that's OT.

    The surface pro 3 is doing outstanding, why would they drop it?

    Wow, this really sucks! I was all set to get the Icon within the next week or so. Guess I should have bought last week like I was planning to do. I really didn't want an iPhone, but I guess this seals the deal.

    Yea, a few reps said it.... but, these are clueless reps (most CSR's don't know crap).....Till there is an official word from Verizon (and there has not been), it could be just rumor.....

    Yea, you MIGHT be right but, till we get that "official" word....we don't know for sure...

    I'll admit for a rumor, there are some pretty strong facts that it could be true.

    @TCMAN88 it's time for you to enlighten us. First you tell us Cyan is launching within hours, then we get the Icon "retired" within days, it's aweful. Icon was my favorite phone I've ever had except the wifi was horrible on 8.1 and it started running very hot. Picked up an M8 for Windows (which is awesome in all ways but that awful camera) and recently an iPhone 6, and all I want is to go back to my Icon running Cyan/Denim with functional wifi and a decent battery life. Hell my Icon is what got me into photography, even went out an bought a DSLR recently.

    Common TC, give me a sign. You don't even have to say anything a "+" or "-" would be enough to keep me going one way or the other

    Yeah, I recall. The only thing I care about is if you have info on Cyan and/or Denim. Seriously, that's all any of us care about

    It isn't a rumor. Look, I have an icon and it's my favorite phone I've ever owned. I don't want it to be retired, but it is.

    That I don't have any info about, until software is actually released, nobody but the software engineers and other "higher ups " at Verizon are going to have any info unfortunately. However, I still think it will be pushed eventually even with the phone retired. Plenty of phones still get updates even after it is discontinued.

    Why wouldn't you believe that? The iPhone 5 was discontinued before the 4s.
    That is exactly what the Verizon rep told me earlier, but that was because it was replaced with the 5c. So yeah, I guess they could launch the Lumia 930....

    I don't remember specifically which ones, but there have been plenty of other phones to keep getting updated for awhile after they are retired. I seem to remember the Droid Bionic I think getting at least one more update.
