    It will. The maxx will probably take it's place. It's a case of too little too late. If it had come out when it was scheduled this would not have been so quick.

    1. If you go to Motos website you will see that the Bionic is definitely getting ICS. 2. The bionic just got an update a mere few days ago to take care of issues. So the phone at this point in time is far from being abandoned my Moto.

    Motorola may still support it. But seems Verizon has slammed the door.

    To be clear, just because sales are discontinued, that doesn't mean support will be. I think we will still see ICS for our Bionic.

    You may be jumping the gun. The Bionic will be discontinued threads have been around since November. I just called two local stores and the 800 number and they said the Bionic is not being discontinued and that there is no news to that effect anywhere on Verizon. Not saying your wrong but I am sure not sure you are right.

    I'm just posting what I was told by Verizon employees at a authorized retail store. I'm simply the messenger.

    Usually a phone will make it a year before being discontinued...has anyone checked the motorola forums to see what's being said there?

    While you could be right, we've seen posts saying that the 5.7.893 and 5.8.894 updates were official based on conversations with techs. And when I had the LG Voyager I asked at an authorized Verizon retail store if I activated VCast (a TV-like feature that would add $10/month) by phone would I be charged the full amount or would I automatically be changed to the special data plan which would discount it. They said yes and they were wrong.

    Looking at threads here I've come to the conclusion that talking to Motorola and Verizon is like using a Magic 8 Ball. Just because you ask the same question doesn't guarantee you'll always get the same answer.

    Checked with Verizon again today. No one has heard of that. Additionally, if they were going to drop it, they would just drop it. They wouldn't sell out their back inventory of a phone that they didn't want to sell. Tell me exactly what store you went in that told you that and I will call them.
