Grandstream Discontinuing BudgeTone 102 and HandyTone 488

May 7, 2008 by Garrett Smith

Our friends at Grandstream notified us recently of a halt on the product production of the BudgeTone102 and the HandyTone 488. We wanted to let all of our customers know in case they own either of these products or were planning on purchasing them.

Effective immediately, Grandstream has stopped accepting orders for the BudgeTone 102. Grandstream also discontinued firmware releases for this model. BudgeTone customers can continue to receive support (including RMA service) from Grandstream for up to 12 months after end-of-life. The BudgeTone 102 is being replaced by the BudgeTone 200.

They also will stop taking new orders for the HandyTone 488 after May 30. They will sell existing limited inventory on a first come, first serve basis. Firmware updates will be discontinued for this model on May 30 as well. Customers will also continue to receive their support services from Grandstream for up to 12 months after end-of-life. HandyTone 488 is being replaced by the HandyTone 503.
