    Smile Discontinued because of Quality?

    Advertisement



    I can upgrade my Tmo plan for another two years, and the handhelds are very nicely priced. I'm leaning towards a 9700, but as I was looking at available models in the store I noticed there were no Pearl flips - when I asked, the salesman responded that RIM was discontinuing the model because of quality issues! I have no way of knowing if it's true or not, but it's interesting that Tmo is saying it

    I doubt they would discontinue it NOW for that reason. Seems like a rep who just made up whatever excuse. It's just old and crappy at this point. Go for the 9700

    The Pearl Flip is no longer on the T-Mo website either. Maybe that rep was correct. You should read the 8220 Flip section of the T-Mo forums. Users over there are FURIOUS with the Flip Berry.

    They are phasing out all models with trackballs and replacing with trackpad devices, so that could be what they are calling a quality issue. Out with the flip and make room for the 9100 maybe
