Verizon Wireless raises the price of the enV Touch and enV3

env touchThis is strange, even for a wireless carrier. Both the enV Touch and enV3 launched in May at $179 and $129, but then dropped down to $149 and $99, which is about right. After all, non-smartphones generally only stay at their original price for a few months. But now both of these phones are back up to their starting price. Why?

We hit up a couple of our Verizon tipsters and they indicated that these two phones are some of their best sellers, which leads us to believe that VZW is just trying to milk it. The carrier has been heavily pushing both of them on TV spots recently. Or maybe the phones just dropped in price for a back-to-school sale. Who knows.
