Verizon doesn't "hate" WP users. But they have not dedicated the resources to get the Cyan update out like WP users would hope. The reason is simple: NUMBERS.

The fact is that WP is a fringe operations system. WP's market share is actually DOWN vs. last year. So it's just not a top priority for anybody at Verizon. Stinks, but that's the simple truth. with a less than 2.5% market share nobody is making Cyan a top priority.

Characterizing WP as "fringe" has nothing to do with how good it is. The only metric that gets you fringe status is number of users.

Save up for an unlocked GSM phone and leave for contract free pastures. I am.

If they delete it using the same time table as releasing Cyan, then i think you are good for another 4 years.
