Getting my Razr Maxx HD today, what should I do?
Ok, I am new to this forum, and more importantly new to the world of smartphones. I threw my four year old LG ENVY2 out the window and order a Razr Maxx HD. It gets delivered today. I got it from Best Buy's Reward Zone Mobile, which had it for $99 with 2 year extension on my Verizon family plan.
Anyways, I am sort of tech savy but never with phones. I want to be able to root it and set up wifi tethering. I am just not sure what to do when this thing gets here. I know there was a recent OTA update to Jelly Bean. Will this update be loaded when I turn on the phone? Will it be forced to download when I activate? Do I want to stay away from JB till a root is available? Are there older updates that I should allow?
Lots of questions I know.
Now for the Verizon experts out there, when I went through Rewardzonemobile's site it did not make me choose a new data plan. It asked if I wanted to keep my existing plan, I said yes. I do not have unlimited data on my old Envy2, it is actually pay per use $1.99/Mb which I know I don't want. I just thought that maybe there was a way to finesse unlimited if I didn't choose a new plan. My daughter's iphone on this family plan does still have unlimited. (and she doesn't use any real amount of data either) Any advice on how to handle the coversation with Verizon? I know I need to pick another plan, just want to do it right.
Thanks for your help and I'm sure I'll be back for more.
