Actually, there are. Tracor Aerospace (now part of BAE) has a contract to turn them into target drones (called QF-4's), so the numbers are dwindling. The US military officially announce the decommissioning of the F4's (although actually doing so is still a work in progress, and some may still be serviceable). But the rest are unmanned drones.

There are some foreign countries still flying them, as far as I know. Parts are getting hard to find (especially engine "hot section" parts). Unfortunately, the US deliberately destroys those parts, so they cannot be used to keep other planes flying. Some of those planes still find a home, however, as "gate guards" it airports around the country.
