I'm also waiting for this phone. I don't see why there aren't more flip phones on verizon. I don't think there is a single flip android phone that verizon has.

 

Anyways, I heard from somewhere that this phone might come out for verizon by March.

I read the blog about the Alltel BB Style yesterday, too.  I definitely think there is now some hope for it on Verizon since Alltel is apparently picking it up.  At least that means there was not a totally exclusive agreement between RIM and Sprint on it.  Also, I got a chance to spend some "quality" time with a friend's BB Style (he is on SPRINT) over the holidays, and I really could not find anything that I didn't like about it.  He has had it since its SPRINT launch and he said that he would not swap it for any other phone out there.

The only problems with this suggestion is that you don't get any notifications. I signed up for it and never received notification for the iPhone debut.

    I got to play with the style at a mall kiosk the other day and want it even more than just seeing it online...I hope Verizon gets it. I'm on a family plan and hate to break it up, but the Sprint guy's sales pitch was hot and heavy and it's a great phone. This phone seems like a perfect smartphone upgrade from my Samsung Alias 2 that just passed 2 years old. It maintains the clamshell design and full keyboard and also has a good camera. I bought the alias because I text and mobile web alot but can't imagine talking into a brick (candy bar, or whatever you call those flat devices) when I do need to carry on a conversation. The Alias and Style also both fit well into a pocket and decrease incidence of "pocket dialing".  I think verizon has a perfect market for the Style in customers like me upgrading from flip/text phones like the Alias. Nothing verizon's carrying now seems like it would be as easy of a transition. I really want a smartphone, but hope I don't have to hold out too much longer. .

Come on, Verizon...bring on the BB style, or ANY flip smartphone.  This type of phone is a must for anyone in construction, or any trades!!  Unfortunately, the trend has gone to ridiculously large touch screens, and away from what a smartphone SHOULD be...a PHONE, with additional capabilities like email, SMS, maps, and browsing when on the go.  I don't need (or want) to watch utube all day or watch full length HD movies on my phone.  I have a droid pro, and this phone is really good, but I can't (and won't) bring this phone to a jobsite, so it sits in my truck, and I'm left having to carry another flip phone with me to take calls.  Bring on the Style, and my problems are solved.  I can't be the only VZ customer that works in the trades and needs a rugged smartphone.

Hello all.   I've been away from the forums for a very long time.   I too want to add my name to the list of people who are seriously interested in this phone.   While I understand that Sprint had some sort of exclusive on it when it was introduced but honestly that HAS to be over by now.     I just wish Verizon would make a decision one way or the other as to what they are going to do with this device.
