Hi -- I've been lurking here for a while and appreciate all the input on these boards. I figured I'd register and post to let you guys know this Target deal is still going (I just ordered mine today!), and it is the way to go if you live in California. State law here requires us to pay sales tax on the full regular retail price of the phone ($729.00) rather than the discounted price, and if you buy through Verizon, Amazon or Best Buy, you have to pay that sales tax. But if you buy through Target's wireless service, you pay $0 in sales tax. It must be because Target's wireless service is online-only and doesn't have any physical locations in the state -- I believe that is the loophole.
Anyway, very excited to get my new phone, and thrilled with the deal I got. I found out about that deal on this thread, so thanks a bunch for posting it!
Received my Target phone today. So far I'm loving it!! The only issue I had was the automated activation didnt work and I had to call them. Took about 30 min total on the phone to get it activated.
Just putting this out there as a manager for target mobile, we do not carry the RAZR Max HD in store.

As for CA....someday they will have an air tax to tax what the normal human will use during a year long period.:p
