Unfortunately due to lackluster sales, the device was discontinued. Some stores may still have it in stock, though. You should call around to stores/retailers in your area to see if they still have it.

It always make me chuckle a bit when there are pages upon pages requesting phones. But then when the phones come out, the sales are poor and the phone winds up getting pulled.

Next time HTC can use a chipset that dont overheat on startup.

HTC is getting money greedy.

Te 810 doesn't overheat.

I honestly think if Koodo offered more in the way of colour choices, the One M9 would have fared better in terms of sales. Reports of their Snapdragon processor overheating quickly gained media attention and a camera, while somewhat of an upgrade from the One M8, had issues that required a firmware update from the manufacturer.

From a design perspective, some chose to hang on to their One M8's, citing that there was no real difference to the One M9. All that said, the One M9 is my daily driver and hasn't let me down yet. Definitely a capable device if you can get your hands on one.

Jonathan is right, this unit with its current price tag wasn't moving off the shelves as fast as we wanted to.

If I still want to purchase the One M9, can I buy it from another store and bring it to Koodo (assuming it is unlocked)?
