No More Neon?

My wife has been wanting a Neon pretty much ever since I got mine, and every time she’s asked around when at stores they’ve always come up with the same reply: currently sold out, or available only to new subscribers (but the former much more frequently than the latter). As her old phone is in pretty bad shape (no cover on the back), she ended up calling AU to find out about Neon availability, and the response was that the Neon is no longer in production. Huh? Is this official? Was the Neon always planned as a limited-time-only product? Doesn’t seem to make much sense, especially considering how popular it’s been, with stores not being able to keep them in stock (or limiting sales to new subscribers). Definitely makes me feel lucky that I was able to get my hands on one.
