It's possible that they've either backtracked on that plan or are not planning to roll it out for quite a long time.
I know of no public statements from Disney that they are NOT going to sell the bands to guests who would otherwise not get them, and a few that they will like the one you quoted. In the absence of a public statement contradicting the previous statement, I expect the previous statement is still in force. However, they are NOT TALKING about it right now because they are in the middle of testing and they are worried about that.

Anyone here should know that a phone CM saying something that they aren't directly involved with is quite often incorrect.

And I can't see Disney passing an opportunity to sell something else, especially if the guests want it. MagicBand? Sure, that's $20...and be sure to check out our Wall of MagicBand Bling to spice it up..."

I'm guessing on the $20. But previous reports did say that the replacement price of a MB would be $50 after one free replacement...figure that's to cover the cost of the first two...
