I would love to know the answer to this myself. I thought Verizon would pick it up about a month after Sprint started selling it, and I've been scouring all the tech news sites daily, but I haven't read anything about Verizon getting the Style.
I understand your interest in upcoming device available with Verizon Wireless. I recommend signing up for email alerts so that you are one of the first to know what Verizon Wireless has coming out. https://email.vzwshop.com/servlet/formlink/f?NFOQU&SOURCEID=WEB_DGF_VZW_SUPPORTNAV
Apparently, Sprint has an "exclusive" deal with RIM for the Blackberry 9670. Can Verizon say anything about this? I do not want to be on a Verizon mailing list unless I am ONLY going to get information about new Blackberry devices that Verizon will support.
I have always owned "flip" or "clam" style phones and have been following the news on this phone since early last summer when it was thought to be an upcoming Verizon phone. Finally in October I was very disappointed to find that it was a Sprint "exclusive". Hopefully, the "exclusive" part is only temporary and Big Red can carry it very soon!
I'm glad you resurrected this thread, so I have others to commiserate with. I would be so happy to hear a Verizon Style announcement, way more excited than the iPhone announcement. I still have hope. I'll stay glued to the blogs and post if I hear anything, and I hope you do too.
My family and I are considering moving to Sprint to get the flip phone. I'm surprised also that Verizon hasn't reacted to the outpouring of requests for a flip style phone. Although I would prefer to stay with Verizon, the prices are fairly competitive at Sprint.
If any of you find out Verizon is getting the Blackberry Style please let us know! I am going to be the first in line (I will beat you all) to get the style! I can't wait! Honestly, I don't care how much it costs. I have always loved clam shells. In my line of work, I am always butt dialing with my blackberry - accidentally calling alot of people. Please Verizon GET THE FLIPPIN BLACKBERRY STYLE...♥
By the way - this weekend I purchased the Droid Pro hoping, just hoping, It would replace my blackberry. Folks, it didn't. I loved the phone. But the keyboard was too small plus I was always hitting the menu key row when typing. The phone also lagged alot. I returned it today. Back to my trusty beloved blackberry...♥
