Motorola w755 to replace RAZR on INpulse lineup?

The Motorola RAZR V3m has been a mainstay of the CDMA cell industry since its inception. There was a time, not too long ago, where it seemed everyone had a RAZR. While those days are seemingly coming to an end, the RAZR is still the top-selling phone in America. Over at Verizon, they only have the RAZR left on their INpulse prepaid service. Could it be exiting even there, though?

In talking to my Verizon rep, I found that they haven’t received any RAZRs in quite a while. They don’t deal too much with INpulse, so that makes sense. She actually thought Verizon had discontinued the phone, until I showed her that it was available on Verizon’s website.

Yet, could it be headed out of even that? A post on Howard Forums reveals that a few Target stores are now carrying the w755 in place of the RAZR. They’ve cleared or are clearing the RAZR out at $80, so if you want a piece of the best-selling phone in America, now’s your chance. Otherwise, the w755 provides a fine alternative. Word is it’s running $149.99.

    I work for Wal-Mart in the Connection Center, and CDMA dominates my part of Iowa (regionally known U.S. Cellular and Verizon monopolize a majority of western central Iowa). As working at a Wal-Mart (Carroll, Iowa) with only one carrier to provide in the Connection Center, my Verizon prepaid and postpaid phone sales are extremely popluar and crucial to the area’s residents. My Verizon prepaid phones fly off the shelves. Some of the products I offer as prepaid phones are the Samsung U-340, the Samsung U-410, the Starcom Blitz (slider text phone…VERY popular!), the Motorola W385 (also very popular…those seem to sell the most), the Motorola V3M RAZR, and the Motorola W755 (Premiering this week at my store). Yes it is true, the Motorola RAZR is starting to see it’s way out the doors at my store…but I know that the RAZR sells well at my store, so I have had another Wal-Mart send their non-selling RAZR post paid phones (from a store in Des Moines where they have more competition) to my store so they can be readily available. The Prepaid RAZRs are being replaced by the W755s…but I have a good on-hand count of the RAZRs to keep the Verizon customer satisfied! Also, the hispanic population of a city 25 miles away whom shops our Supercenter tend to buy Verizon Prepaid phones and cards continuously so Verizon (who recently upgraded to EVDO Coverage in our area…a few months ago) isn’t going anywhere soon!
