    Thanks much. Leaning towards the Maxx when I retire the Rezound. Like most I'm tired of having to be near a charger. Maxx would solve this issue.
    Prices are dropping on the Maxx in my favor. Can't wait for Black Friday sales.

    @Clamshell - None of the newest phones will do voice and data on 3G like your Rezound, but every phone on Verizon but the iPhone will do voice and data on LTE. The chipset in phones from last year like the GS3 and the Rezound are Snapdragon S4's with the ability to do SVDO on Verizon's 3G. The newer Snapdragon chipsets from this year won't do it on 3G, just LTE.

    Ok after a week I think my decision is becoming clearer. And it is not the way I expected. I thought for sure I was going to stick with the Maxx. But I have been getting tons of freezes and lock-ups with standard Google apps. Even the phone app. I have had to force close many apps over the last few days. Bluetooth reception is shotty and will connect sometimes and other times it won't. And I am having major syncing issues with MyFordTouch. Yeah the batttery life is better but at this point that is about it. And not like the battery life on the G2 is miserable. Think it is time to take a chance and make a change.

    Awesome G, I made the same decision and officially ordered a case+screen protector for the G2. I haven't had a problem with it yet and even if I have to turn off data for a while (get almost no signal in the warehouse I work at, and neither does any phone that anyone else has) the data comes back immediately. Sometimes you just have to take a chance.

    I work in a warehouse too but we can't have our phones on the floor. So mine stays in my locker on airplane mode. A nice app you may want to download is Auto Airplane Mode. It puts your phone in airplane mode when you shut your screen off. You can also have it set to keep wifi and bt enabled even when it is active.

    The only problem with Auto Airplane is it shuts off any moving data when you sleep the screen. Great while at work, not so great outside of work. I use Green Power and enable it's location based data toggles. It doesn't kill the phone radio but kills the others unless in specified locations.

    Ok I am feeling really stupid. One sore spot for me on the LG has always been the white bar at the bottom for the touch buttons. All the times I have played with the setting I never noticed you could change the color. D'oh!!! But I also noticed that the transparency option does not seem to work.

    For me it really doesn't matter. When I am in airplane mode I don't worry about getting data anyway. Everything will purge when I take it out of airplane mode.

    The transparency works on our AT&T G2. Forgot to check it on the VZW one. Will do that on Tuesday. I like that you can change the settings up of the bar, so the back arrow is on the left like every other phone lol
