I guess this is really applicable to all the other old network phones they have too, how long until they run out of stock for them?

you can no longer buy them new from Telecom or dealers, best chance is second hand

dman: don't they still have replacement phones when current ones need to be fixed?

No, if you need to purchase a new phone you will need to choose an XT phone and plan. If you want a non PDA CDMA phone check out DSE etc...

Lol, Just wait for a half decent one at the right price to pop up on TM and pack it away for a rainy day/replacement.

I picked up a fairly mint Okta Touch for $100 a couple of days after XT launched. People are dumping them for stupid money at current. Hell, I sold my Nokia 6275i for significantly more than i paid for the Okta so was a real win win lol

you can get them second hand on trademe for not much money.

I know a couple of Telecom stores (I forget which ones - possibly Lynn Mall) were selling the last few units of CDMA stock that Telecom had in a clearence sale. I have no idea if there are many, or even any, left of the OKTA touch phones.
