    Heard the same thing, but it is unconfirmed. Phone Arena is reporting it as a done deal, but I haven't heard anything from our site.

    I think that it would be a tragic waste if true. I think it is a tragic waste of energy if just a rumor.

    7 Months? the Icon is a better device then 7 months.

    May I present this article written here on WPCentral: http://www.windowscentral.com/verizo...r-after-launch

    I hate to say it, but Verizon did the same thing to the BlackBerry Z30. It also was a low selling Verizon exclusive. Maybe Verizon will be getting the 830?

    I doubt it since they're getting the 735. I just don't see them carrying both models.

    Same thing happened to the Lumia 822 and no one really gave a sh*t. This happens. Newer models come out, old ones go away. This doesn't mean they won't continue to support it through updates. They've been good about updates for my "obsolete" 822.

    But less than 8 months after release? And the Icon was considered a flagship. I don't think the 822 is in the same league. I wonder if Verizon knows why the Icon didn't sell... It's like a chronic grouch wondering why he doesn't have any friends!

    Even with all of at&t's shenanigans, like selling their bizarro world version of the 1520, it makes me realize how happy I am to not be giving money to Verizon. With GSM, you have the freedom to buy a phone outright when the carrier doesn't give you options, like the amount of people here who bought the 1520.3 variant. With Verizon, you are simply just out of luck.

    This is because next week they're completely dropping all iPhone and Android phones in favor of the new Microsoft 1000zx Windows Phone that will have dual quad cores, 128GB of RAM, 1TB of internal storage, a 6" OLED flex screen all packaged into a polymer flex case that can be wrapped around your wrist.

    So will they randomly drop support for other less than year old flagships running WP?

    They dropped the Icon yet still sell the Lumia 928. Bit odd.

    They still might be trying to get rid of their inventory. Some of the other WP color options are limited as was the Icon's (black only) before it was taken 'round back and shot dead.

    If anything the reason why it didn't sell is that an update was made available for it quickly after launch that craprizon never bothered to push. I used to hate at&t, but they seem to have changed their image thanks to t-mobile. Verizon is a we don't give a crap because we have more power than god type of company. I'm done with them.

    I've pretty much decided to leave Verizon and go to T-Mobile. Except that I'm just waiting to see what Windows Phone models they get.

    T-Mobile doesn't have Cyan either, but at least you can purchase unlocked phones that do have Cyan. Verizon doesn't have that option nor does Sprint.

    A couple of possible scenarios:
    1. Verizon isn't really behind Windows Phone.
    2. There is a new flagship phone coming out sometime this month. 830 isn't a flagship phone. I haven't heard any rumors of a new flagship, so not real confident.
    3. The Icon has some serious design issues with Wi-Fi and they've decided to cut their losses. It's antenna gate all over, but there are so few of us Windows Phone fans that VZW just decided to can it.

    I lean toward the third scenario as my 13 day old Icon definitely doesn't have the Wi-Fi reception and throughput that I got with the 928 I traded in or the 822 I bought on eBay. Even my HTC 8X has better reception.

    I love the Icon, with exception of the Wi-Fi reception and throughput. The screen size and clarity of the 1080p display is amazing. Camera is fantastic. Performance is buttery smooth. Battery life is all day. Materials are first rate. But the Wi-Fi sucks.

    I'm debating on taking mine back. I have through tomorrow, but there is no other phone I want. I'm not a fan of the metal HTC One M8 and why would I want to financially support Samsung. Lumias are the best Windows Phone.

    Very sad. Hope there is a positive surprise in store for us.

    For what its worth, i literally just got off the phone with Verizon. I'm paraphrasing but this is what i was told. The icon is not being retired for another year. The reason why its not listed on the web site is because they are out of stock. Now that sounds a little fishy to me but the bottom line is. Until Verizon announces it all other sources are rumors. Hopefully someone can clear this up.

    Honestly, your best bet is AT&T at least they support their Windows Phones. T-Mobile hasn't released cyan for the 925 & 521 (both of my phones) and have stopped supporting the 810 all together ( it's been EOL since last year and hasn't received an update since Lumia Amber). Depending on the cellular signal where you live, and you want GSM, AT&T is the way to go.

    You can get non t-mobile phones on t-mobile and they'll get the updates. Unfortunately T-mobile is crap in my area. Until recently Verizon was the only carrier that worked. Now AT&T put an antenna on our water tower and it works as well.

    did the 822 not receive portico, amber, and black?
    the icon has yet to receive a single one.
