Last question on this thread, I hope: it is rooted with motofail...I have the patch to unroot it on my computer.... Can my son just run a factory reset to rid the phone of all my stuff, or do we have to unroot it first. o_O and can the droid utility that is out, can that be installed over the rooted phone?
You do not have to unroot to do a factory data reset. If you want root to remain then leave it as is, if you dont want your son to have access to system files use the droid 4 utility to unroot it and then do the reset and you should be good. That will remove all your info from the phone. You will need a new micro sim card if you sons phone doesnt have one. You can just move yours to the maxx when you get it and you will be good to go.

Thanks again...I ran the utility and unrooted then the phone...it ran flawlessly... then I reset to factory... I don't know how, but most of the apps that I deleted came back except for the "MY VERIZON" .. My son is taking it in today to verizon and transfer the phone to his name... I am going to keep my droid incredible and hopefully a one click root will come out for it... So thank you all so much for your help, input and suggestions...
