May I present this article written here on WPCentral: http://www.windowscentral.com/verizon-reportedly-retires-lumia-icon-less-year-after-launchHeard 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.
I doubt it since they're getting the 735. I just don't see them carrying both models.I hate to say it, but Verizon did the same thing to the BlackBerry Z10. It also was a low selling Verizon exclusive. Maybe Verizon will be getting the 830?
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.
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.
