    Razr Maxx

    So I got my new Razr Maxx this morning . . .

    It's on the charger now, and I'll probably go ahead and run the update to ICS here in a few. Also picked up a Motorola Elite Silver Bluetooth earpiece as well . . . anyone have experience with that?

    One thing I wasn;'t expecting - I went in this morning to buy the phone outright, thus keeping my unlimited data. But I wound up taking an early upgrade instead ($199 w/ 2-year agreement) and opted for the shared data plan at 4GB/month with unlimited talk and text. I had no intention of voluntarily going to a tiered plan, but she pointed out that I've almost never gone over 2GB, so I figured that not only am I not really losing anything by walking away from unlimited, But I saved several hundred dollars off the full retail price.

    Welcome to the world of the Razr, if you are going to update to ICS I recommend not installing any APPS first and doing a factory data reset after the install is done.

    I have never used that earpiece but I hear good things about it.

    I understand about the unlimited plan, I have been on it for a long time now. However I usually don't even use 1GB, still it is the principle for me. That is my data and I want to be able to use it if I want.

    I am sure you will love the phone, let us know if you have any questions.

    PS: Nice signature, that movie is amazing.

    Yeah, the Verizon rep said it's their most popular one, for whatever that's worth . . .

    I understand about the unlimited plan, I have been on it for a long time now. However I usually don't even use 1GB, still it is the principle for me. That is my data and I want to be able to use it if I want.
    There was that sinking feeling knowing what I'd given up, but it was better than the sinking feeling of shelling out the $650 I was intending to when I walked in the door ;-)

    I am sure you will love the phone, let us know if you have any questions.
    You can pretty much count on that lol . . . updating to ICS as we speak.
    PS: Nice signature, that movie is amazing.
    Quite simply the finest motion picture ever made, bar none.

    Welcome aboard.. if tiered works for you... awesome... i just hope that the vzw person wasn't lying to you just to switch you over to the tiered data... they told me the same thing...

    And i know for a fact that i use around 6.5 gigs per month..

    But i hope you enjoy the new phone and that everything works out for you ..

    Welcome to the world of Maxx =)

    I have the Elite Flip and it works wonderfully so I can only imagine yours will work just as well.

    I actually called Verizon customer service about a month ago, solely to inquire into my usage, and what the rep told me that day was the same thing the rep at the store told me this morning - that I average between one and two gigs a month. I really only use it for light surfing, checking Facebook, stuff like that. I don't use Pandora or anything, so my data usage has never been particularly heavy . . .

    Thanks

    I actually looked at the Flip, but I was intrigued by the form factor of the Silver. It's charging now, I'll pair it later on

    Great phone (I have an X2, Maxx and GS3 in rotation) never have figured out how much Gig-a-Boo I use but have tried to hold onto a plan that perhaps I never use.
    Congrats and enjoy!
