Hi. Sabrie

Yes they do discountinue software updates and free product support, however, they do no do so instantly. Discountnued models may continue to receive updates and product support for few more years from the date it was discountinued.

An example would be the Symbian smartphone OS (one used by Nokia E63 among other devices) which was recently dropped by Nokia - Nokia at the same time promised to continue its support inspite their having droppep it for Windows 8.
