    No Jelly Bean?

    So, I guess this is their way of reneging on their earlier promise to port Jelly Bean to the D4? I'm not at all a Happy Camper(tm)... http://cdn.droidblog.net/forum/images/smilies/smile2/angry.gif

    Just because a device goes end of life doesn't mean the updates will stop. It just means Verizon will no longer sell that device. I don't think Google wants Motorola to continue down the road of broken promises that so many manufacturers have found themselves on when it comes to future updates.

    I am surprised the Samsung galaxy Nexus should be on that list.

    I think the Galaxy Nexus is already end of life. It's no longer available from Verizon.

    I knew this day would come....:sad: Thankfully my Razr is still going strong! The only problem I have is that I should've gotten the Maxx. Guess I'll have to buy the conversion kit at some point.

    Once my Droid 4 croaks I'll get the Droid 4 Maxx.... oh, wait...

    I guess I'll spring for the Droid 4 M... oh, hold on...

    Perhaps the Droid 4 HD? No, wait, that's not right...

    Definitely the Droid 5... um, maybe...

    I kind of doubt it, especially since we're probably still a good 4-6 months away from the S4 becoming available on Verizon. They're simply just cutting out the more expensive 32GB model. The cheaper 16GB model, the one that most people buy, isn't going anywhere. If the sales warranted keeping the 32GB around, I'm sure it wouldn't be on its way out quite yet.

    I'm shocked about the S3 and the Droid 4. I wonder if there will ever be a Droid 5

    Short answer, no
    The phones just arent being sent out to the retailers any more. They still have ALOT for replacement.

    that stinks was wondering the same. I want the maxx hd or razr hd. Should have known that there was a reason my razr was only $1 at best buy.

    Answer 2 posts up, plenty of refurbs to last for quite some time. Then your old one will become a refurb and so on.

    aliens don't use razr's, they use obsidian.

    Damn! I better start taking really good care of my Droid 4. It may have to last way longer than my other phones. I kinda doubt that Motorola is going to continue the physical keyboard series.... Most people seem to go for touchscreen typing (which is only ok if most of your comments go along the lines of: LOL! OMG!) and phones with keyboards are more and more a niche market.
    Anybody have any idea how many D4s were sold?
    Well, it should last me until the end of my contract with VZW, and whoever then has the best physical keyboard phone can count on me as a customer.:frown:

    I may have to go switch to full touchscreen of the droid series gets discontinued. I'm practicing day by day. Hahah. I will have to get a phablet though. My fingers are just too big.

    I hope my Droid 4 lives for a good long time. I love, love, love the physical keyboard plus the phone is way cool as well. I have been more than pleased with it. I also love being able to transfer apps to the SD card. Why they have supposedly stopped that with jelly bean is beyond me. Do they not realize how people use these phones? I love it when the corporate entities figure out just what they think I need or want. I'm with DroidBound above. Since I'm not going to renew with VZW my phone should last to the end of my contract. At that time whoever has the best physical keyboard gets my business.

    Since I've got the old unlimited plan I'll probably just buy a used D4 and keep it as a spare for when mine dies. Better to keep the plan than get suckered into a limited one by a subsidized new one.

    When it lists the Razr as being discontinued, does this automatically include all flavors including the Maxx?
