    Yeah, ordered mine Friday night. The 179 is for new contacts. Upgrades are 199. Still a better deal than from Verizon. Plus, in my case it seems the only path to keeping unlimited data on my main line (buying this on secondary 2gb, then after activation, will swap phones).

    I'm hoping it does. My contract ends the week before Christmas, so I'm holding out and watching pricing. Radio Shack also had it for $199.99 last week but no more.

    now it is 149! I bought mine less than a week ago at the 179 price. I emailed them to see if they will refund the difference to my account...we shall see!

    It's currently out of stock. Was in stock this morning.

    [Edited] About an hour and a half later it's back in stock at $174.99.

    I called Best Buy and asked if they would price match amazon.com with a Maxx HD at $174.99 and 2 Razr M's at $.01 each and they said they would.

    I am soooo tempted. But what is this I hearcabout the GPS doesn't't work with stand alone. I want to take the leap. But nervous, what if I get a dud. I'm screwed.

    So I went ahead and took the plunge. I got the Max HD. Best buy will price match with Amazon, I went ahead used the credit card, and low and behold it rang up as 112.00$! Must have used the money I spent on of Max towards the diff. I feel eve better about getting it. I can easily pay that off in a week.

    Why I made the plunge, I took y'all advice, I think it was Tismydroid. Suggested I play with them in the store side by side. I did, I did not see a whole lot of difference in speed but HD was a fraction of a second faster. The display is nicer, but what was the winning moment? When I realized the interface was a lot more user friendly and it seem to be set up more intuitively to what I want to do. It was set up a bit like my old X with quick settings. It is a really easy phone to figure out.

    Get if you can afford it. It's so much friendlier to navigate. Don't know why but I can type a whole lot better on this screen then I could the other one. Maybe that 4.7 inch screen makes a difference after all.

    I know I should have put this all on another thread. But I got on a roll. Also it's a big solid metal phone. It feels so comfortable in my hand. I do love the circle Widgets. GPS is locked and correct, I used it for driving home. We shall see how this phone acts in two weeks, hopefully it will still be wonderful.

    Buy it, take the plunge. I'm happy. Moderators u can move this if you need to. I got off on a tangent, lots of coffee this morning.

    BB charged you a total of $112? Are you sure? Amazon's best price is $145 if you add a new line to a family plan. And what about sales tax?

    Just want to know how to get the same deal at BB!

    TIA

    I don't know why? maybe it was a secret I should have kept. ;) LoL! I don't know why it came out that way, maybe the droid gods/goddesses wanted me to have it. And I can't find my receipt strangely enough. Weird.

    battery?

    I originally got my RMHD (Razr MAXX HD) from my Verizon store for $299+tax and I was amazed at how long the battery lasted. The next day, I saw this forum reporting the AmazonWireless price of $174 (no tax) and I decided to save over $100 by getting the one from AmazonWireless. That savings inclu​des Verizon's $35 restocking fee.

    After two days, the AmazonWireless phone, does not seem to have the same battery performance. Perhaps the settings are different so I will hold off on judgement for now. I did notice the 1st RMHD had screen timeout set to 1 minute and this RMHD was set to 10. Perhaps that is the issue right there. While I continue to evaluate, I was wondering if anyone knew why AmazonWireless had such low prices. Are these refurbished or QA rejects maybe?

    You bring up a good point. When I had the regular Maxx it was glitch then I had someone at verizon to a factory reset, and I don't know what they did but they made it a whole lot better. My guess is the peeps at BB just don't know how to optimize the phones. They are meets every carriers needs all at once all the time, so maybe Verison is trained better and knows how to set up phones better.

    I like your conspiracy theory on Amazon and BB. I trust best buy is giving brand new phones
    But I am not so sure Amazon is, because I can't see them get the box out and show me the new phone. I can be a little demanding when I get new electronics. It' s kinda like an automachanic, unless you know how to fix and set it up yourself, you are kinda at the mercy of who ever you get your phone from.

    I went off topic but I can't see why BB would be selling refurbished phones. But maybe Amazon is.
