The thread has been started by someone named tophtml, asks the question about why it is so difficult to find the Vonage Starcom F1000 or F3000 WiFi Phone.
Obviously doing his research, tophtml writes:
When will Vonage and/or their authorized retailers begin offering Vonage WiFi Phones again? I have searched all of the authorized retailers and the Vonage site and find NO offerings for the Vonage UTStarcom F1000, F1000G or the F3000.
I currently own a UTStarcom F1000 and in my opinion, allowing Vonage WiFi phones to be discontinued would be a SERIOUS mistake. I have had many inquiries regarding my phone from current Vonage customers who have seen me use it and I must tell them that all Vonage WiFi phones are currently out of stock and unavailable.
After reading what tophtml posted, I went to the Products section of the Vonage site. Just like the Staple Singers sang, "I'll take you there."
Near as I can tell no Vonage Starcoms are being offered.
Either one of two things are going on here. Starcom has been having production issues, and the supply chain with Vonage is all gummed up, or because of slow sales or a belief this gizmo was released ahead of its time, Vonage is de-emphasizing the product.
What's your hunch?
