Update: One important additional detail here -- this information was received in a Verizon customer service call center. It's not clear when (or if) corporate and third-party stores will receive the same story from the big wigs.
Update 2: We're still trying to get some official clarification from Verizon, but it seems that Glydes haven't been pulled. We still believe the screen shots we were provided to be authentic, though -- so it's not clear if Verizon changed its mind, hasn't yet pulled them, the stoppage was very brief, or this information only applies to certain departments or situations. We'll continue to update as we get more.
*Verizon is currently in the process of acquiring AOL, Engadget's parent company. However, Engadget maintains full editorial control, and Verizon will have to pry it from our cold, dead hands.
