    That's what I've been told by my local BB anyway over the years (as well as last week, as I was contemplating this same game ). But it makes sense, as Verizon is where the buck stops.

And besides, if you do that it'll reset the phone to like it was when you got it.
    +1 on that. I had to do 5 battery pulls in the past 24 hours. I finally gave up and flashed a rom. No problems yet /fingers crossed.

    I know I am tired of the data connection going out then back in. I'll have three bars, but can't get on the internet. If that is fixed on the razr then I might just buy it.

    the update is supposed to fix that - and the "leaked" update definitely seems to help

    Now how is that stuff done? Do you have to use a computer to "root" the phone? What is rooting anyway?

    See http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...op-asking.html, but ignore the title; it was written long ago.

    In addition to what aaf709 posted, if you want to go ahead and root your phone, take a look at this thread http://www.droidforums.net/forum/sho....php?p=1799134

    The "problem" with Android phones (Apple does not have this "problem" with once yearly-ish upgrades) is that a "far better" phone is ALWAYS just around the corner. I love my Bionic. Yes, the RAZR looks like a fantastic phone although I think the screen is a bit larger and I would prefer a 4.0" screen). Kevlar .... nice.

    But that does not make the Bionic any less of a phone. You've got your return window right now and if you want the RAZR then now is the time to return the Bionic. Of course a software update for the Bionic is due next month resolving most issues, and who knows what will need to be resolved with the RAZR.
    I like the way you put that. Was going to trim it for post purposes but really couldn't bring myself to trim any of it.

    RAZR definitely looks like an awesome phone.. but then again so does the Nexus Prime..

    I'll probably find a way to get the Prime (dev phone on big red...I just gotta see what the devs can do unhampered) but if it means losing my Bionic I WILL be sad to see it go. It's a fantastic phone.

    Ideally I will use someone in families' upgrade to get Prime and give them a rooted themed phone (and become tier 1 maintainer for them, lol)

    Seeing pictures of the DROID 4 made me realize how true this is. Looks just like a razr with a keypad. So I think I might stick with the bionic. And, I went to the vzw store and they gave me a price adjustment.
