    What does this mean? And why would they not continue support for this phone?

    Nexus 6P, Nexus 6 and BlackBerry Priv reach End of Life status at Telus

    I hope to find discounted phones to buy as a backup if this one fails as I find it quite good for my needs.

    It sounds like they will just not be selling it anymore.

    It just means Telus is dropping support after a specified date.

    Noticed the other day that some UK sellers are no longer selling the Priv. Shown as "Discontinued" on Clove's website & "Error 404" on the Carphone Warehouse site, although CPW do still have it on display in store. (Still for sale at Shop BlackBerry for £425!)

    The Priv just disappeared off of AT&T's site several months ago.

    I am a bit surprised Verizon is still selling it. But, they did roll out a security update on time this month, so maybe that is a good sign.

    Hopefully Verizon doesn't stop the sale of the PRIV. If they do I'll have to pick one up as a spare.

    They are just stopping sale of it, which makes sense for an old device over 1 year.

    The title is click baity though.

    Does this mean they will also stop providing updates?

    No, I doubt they will stop updating it.

    Yep. About two months ago AT&T dropped the Priv.

    No more unit sales and warranty replacement means you'll be offered a different device. Keep your PRIV safe people!

    End of life and end of support are 2 different things. You should only really be worried about end of support, for the most part.

    Regardless, it's not like carriers offer much in the support category any longer . I'm really hoping that TCL is building their relationships with Canadian carriers given we are a couple weeks away from the Mercury Event
