Trouble. Verizon UNlaunches

Dropped ancher? Put it in dry dock? Verizon has stopped selling the Kyocera Duraforce Ultra 5G. Within a week of its first sales Verizon's website said that it was unavailable to order. A few days later they showed a shipping date of late March and a few days after that it showed a shipping date of April 1 2021. As of March 31st Verizon has removed the phone from their website. There are problems with the screen becoming unresponsive which is reset by hitting the power button and then unlocking the phone again. There are also problems with the screen touching itself.

Support timeline problematic for some people

The Ultra is available on Verizon as of 3.11.21. I started with the brigadier and security updates stopped when the PRO came out. Updates for the pro stopped when the pro 2 came out.

Kyocera is a small player but I think they should support the phones for more than 2 years. There were problems with the pro and pro 2 that were not address...

hope it is better quality than the duraforce pro - when does it release on verizon?

currently using the duraforce pro, which was replaced under warranty for overheating battery just before warranty ran out. the replacement phone (just like the original) is very slow and the screen repeatedly just freezes up when trying to do simple things like scrolling thru the android screens, and have to wait 20-30 seconds for the processor to catch up. the duraforce pro 2 came out remarkably quickly after the 1, but there were no deals and I refuse to fix the manufacturer's problem with five of my own 100 dollar bills, especially after only 24 months of use on the original phone. I intend to upgrade but it if doesn't work properly this time I will return it quickly. I do like the design and dislike the Sonim design as its too big and...

Hopefully AT&T picks up this phone as well.
There are many that need rugged phones like these.
