    Buying a Maxx

    Hey guys I hope this is technically the proper forum for this. Basically I want to buy a Maxx to replace my Thunderbolt that is now broken. My question is if I get one off of Craigslist is it as simple as going to the verizon site to switch it out? I currently am using an OG droid that I was successfully able to add to my account when the tbolt broke. But going BACK to a 4g phone with a SIM card will everything work ok? Hope this makes sense to someone . Also I was able to maintain my unlimited data with the OG droid because thats what my original contract was for.


    Thanks and have a good day.

    The Maxx takes a different Sim than the thunderbolt but everything is backed up from your Google account.

    If purchasing from Craigslist, make sure the ESN of the phone is clear so that you can activate it. You will have to most likely go into the VZW store for activation as it does require the MicroSIM card (as indicated above)...If you are placing the phone on your current line that has unlimited data, that should not change and I would clarify before you leave the store that it didn't get changed in error - but all current unlimited users are grandfathered in and keep their unlimited data.

    I'd try swappa before resorting to Craigslist. Less risky IMO.

    I'm not in the market for a phone, smalltowngirl, but just curious to learn. How do you check a phone's ESN and do you just go to Verizon and ask for a new SIM?

    sim cards are free at Verizon, and they can check your esn too.

    You can ask the seller for the ESN number and then verify it with VZW or even better, ask the seller to meet you at VZW so the ESN can be checked. And yes, you would just ask the VZW rep to activate your phone - there should be no charge for the SIM card and they would not extend your contract as you are using a phone that you own.

    Smile Buy one, get one free

    Just as an aside here, wifey and I went in to Verizon today to buy/upgrade two new Razr Maxx's. Of course, we had to order them cuz the store was all out. But to our amazement, the deal was, BUY ONE, GET ONE FREE! Now, you informed folks might have already heard of this deal, but we hadn't, and were all prepared to fork over $600 or so bucks. Our total outlay was $424.72.

    We had a $30 credit on our account (haven't a clue where that came from, but we don't ask...), bought one OtterBox phone case for mine (my phones take a LOT of abuse!), wifey got a standard case for hers, and we got a three-pack of screen protectors.

    We have to wait until next weekend to pick them up (DRAT!).

    $424.72! I'm jazzed to say the least.

    We're in Carson City, NV, if that makes any difference.

    I was almost a week too early for the BOGO. On a side note; the screen protectors will just collect fingerprints. The naked screen is extremely scratch AND fingerprint resistant. Scratch resistance is the number one reason why I came back to Motorola. My Thunderbolt looks like a pittbull was teething on it.
