Im on a family plan with my fiancee and I. We both want the note 2. My phone is grandfathered in with the unlimited plan, should I buy the phone out right? Add a line, or use my upgrade and loose the unlimited??
The screen absolutely blew me away. I cannot recall ever seeing a screen on any phone that was as impressive to look at from the standpoint of clarity, brightness and colors. I like the screen on the Razr HD Maxx but with one reservation, that being that when looking at text with a white background, even at maximum brightness, the white is not true white - it is even less bright white than on an older Droid. That is not the case on the Note 2. The screen is fantastic. I also tried typing on it and found the larger screen definitely made it easier to type and improved the accuracy of my typing. Web pages I viewed on the Note were much more pleasant to view. I also found the stylus easy to use and definitely useful although it might take the rest of my life to learn how to use all of the functions of this phone.
I'm very happy with Moto and have had a series of Droids all of which had great radios and zero problems. I was definitely planning to buy the Razr HD Maxx until seeing the Note 2. For me it now boils down to whether or not the Note will have an unlocked GSM radio like the Razrs do. I often travel abroad and need the ability to pull out the Verizon sim when out of the country and pop in a local sim card. If I can do that on the Note 2 I'm definitely buying it. If I can't I'll be buying the Razr.
One final observation. I have found the Motos to be very solidly built and every one I have had has survived a few accidental drops with no problem whatsoever. As a result I have never paid for insurance on one and will not if I end up buying the Razr HD Maxx. After seeing the Note 2, I would not buy that one without insurance. It does not seems as solid and that huge glass screen scares me into protecting it with insurance if I buy one.

I guess I'm of mixed opinion on the insurance issue. They are really only good for the first year, or perhaps less than that. After that you start getting other phones as replacements and you've payed enough into it to buy a decent phone. But then again, if something happens to your N2....
