    Update: This is due to fulfillment issues not for any other reason. Motorola cant keep up with amount of orders that are coming in! Now of course this is only information provided by our local VZW Management. Again we are not starting rumors just relaying information provided

    How about we read everything and wait for full information before making posts with scary titles eh?

    the guy at costco (san jose) said they sold out immediately on day one, and also when they got new shipments. they had just a couple when I got one for my wife, a couple weeks ago.

    My guess would be supply constraints are due to ramping up production of the RAZR and winding down Bionic production because it will probably get an early EOL from Moto. Why would they pour money into producing the Bionic when they are coming out with a new flagship device after a month and a half. Please note this is just my guess and nothing more.

    Playing devil's advocate here, but fulfillment issues may also be a result of an unexpectedly high return rate which is leading to a depletion of in-stock phones.

    Just sayin'....

    I don't think so. They'd probably want to make as many sales as they can from a device that's already obsolete. Squeeze out as much sales while they still can.

    Why not? The indirectly make money when a person is off contract with a old phone. Why not artificially slow production, keep those out shopping for a new phone off contract for a couple more weeks to sell them a phone for $50 more than what you could of sold them, i believe the Bionic and RAZR are both being sold in the same financial quarter. You can already see as they are releasing the RAZR they don't care about the customer or their loyalty, it is a company after all and they like profit.

    God so tired of the moto bashing today. Read enough "waaaah Motorola lied to me! My bionic is obsolete now!" Posts.

    Y'all are too too much. The Bionic is a great device and is absolutely NOT obsolete. The RAZR (man, memories, I had one of the original RAZRs back in the day) is a different device. Different form factor, will appeal to different people. Motorola runs their business like a... business. They are going to push out as many new devices as quickly as possible. Why? To make as much money as quickly as possible. That's IT. End of story. No company is going to tell you "I've got this great product coming to the market, but you should probably wait until xx/xx/xxxx when our even better, newer product is coming out."

    Think people, please, think, before you post gibberish like this.

    I want to see solid confirmation on why they are pulling phones. Even if they are out of stock, I wouldn't call it unsellable. I heard radio shack also pulled the phone. I figured that third party retail gets the phones on consignment to sell. Or they purchased the phone from vzw out right. For example propane cylinders are usually sold to retailers at one price and they resell at their own price. Bigger accounts get the cylinders on consignment meaning they don't pay for the cylindet until it's sold to the public. I find it hard to believe vzw would just pull product back due to their own lack of inventory unless there's a real issue with the phone.

    Everything is speculation at this point. Another Android news site posted about Bionics being pulled, and was greeted by this from Verizon.

    "We received an Email from a Verizon representative (a pretty nasty one at that) stating this is not true and Verizon is not pulling the Droid Bionic off store shelves. All we can say is this, if thats true, then great. Whats not great is how the representative represented Big Red. More to come"

    Wish they would even return mine ONCE. Took into Costco where I bought it, they wouldn't exchange say I have to go through VZW. VZW wouldn't do anything (yet) other than note my account because they couldn't replicate the issues (BSOD, headphone whine, and beyond BSOD mine had on 3 occasions now been on at one point, then goes to sleep and won't turn on or power up at all without pulling the battery). Seriously...how can they NOT hear the headphone whine??? Its pretty obvious...unless of course when you "take it into the back room to test it" you really aren't doing anything anyway....
