Right now in my zipcode, 33428, the 8900 is only 29.99 with a 2 year contract. Can this phone possibly be on its way out for new phones or is the phone being phased out already? Or is just the price going down from lack of interst? Dont know. EDIT: Aldo the Audiovox 8600 is only 9.99. Maybe I'll get one of those for my mom.
