    I picked mine up at lunch today. Loving it so far.

    Can't comment on the hotspot as I haven't tried it, but it's build .748.

    Those of you posting that you've picked up the Maxx today, please include the store and city in your message. Verizon store, Verizon kiosk, Costco, Amazon, etc. Thanks.

    I bought the Razr 3 days ago, and got aquainted with it before trading it bak to big red. I got the maxx this morning...almost the same phone. Rooted it with the same script. Hacked the Hotspot just like I did on Razr. On the razor it worked great. On the Maxx it do ok until I pull something big like streaming netflix. Then it gets all goofy and locks the phone up untill I reboot. USB tethering still works fine. I did do the update on the Razr before I tried using hotspot yesterday. The Maxx doesn't have an update yet. I have read that the update was to address teh hotspot issues that the Razr was having. Does anyone know if this is right? I have tried open garden and Barnacle but they do not seem to work on this phone. Any ideas on how not to pay for data twice. I am grandfathered in on unlimited data plan.

    pappatech: This is a problem because rooting and using the wifi hotspot is the main thing I plan on doing with the Maxx. Please let us know if you find a solution to the wifi issue you're having.

    razr Maxx

    Got mine today, coming from the Droid 3. I no longer used the keyboard because I've gotten so proficient with Swype, so why carry around the bulk? First off, I can't believe this thing has such a big battery because it is still very slim and light. Secondly, I don't get all the bashing on the screen, it looks really good. I know everyone loves Samsung's screens but they are too dark when surfing the web. This screen is not as bright as the old LCD screens but the colors and contrast are much better. I have it turned on full brightness, why not, I have a big battery!

    The only thing I'm disapointed with is the strength of vibration. Incredibly weak, maybe because of the built-in battery? I will never feel this vibrate in my pocket and may never even hear it vibrate in a meeting unless I leave it on something that will add to the noise.

    You might check into the app Volume+ in the market - several have used it on the GNex to increase the volume and it has worked on the vibration as well...

    I'll try it, but the volume on the Razr maxx is awesome, very loud, only the vibration is weak. Will that app make the phone too loud?

    Got it working.

    I found a solution that is working good right now.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-razr/181913-razr-root-wireless-tether-issue.html

    Go to #9 post. I have tested and I am getting 15mbps down and 8mbps up. Pretty good. A little slower than usb connected but not by much.

    I picked it up about 2 hours ago. I've been playing with it non-stop and the battery hasn't really dropped much, compared to my original Droid.

    I was pretty concerned about not having a hardware keyboard but after getting used to just using the screen and then using Swype I'm no long concerned about it and so far love this phone.

    I spoke prematurely. A few more minutes after I posted it started acting goofy again.
