I don't know what to do at this point. Months ago I jumped from my beloved X2 (before the data plans issue) I grabbed a Maxx. That one got crappy battery life. Got a NEW Maxx and did NOT let them turn it on until it was charged and the Battery was AMAZING so was reception 3g/4g. Then ICS. Reception went in the crapper. Could barely make calls from my house and internet was non-existent. Late last week the Maxx started acting like it wanted to light me on fire. A pants heater in the winter would have been welcome maybe but having to use speaker phone to keep from burning my face was unacceptable. My Great Store Manager (great guy) said "What can I do? How about a New Galaxy S3? What do I know, So I took it. Pretty phone. Great screen. No, the battery is no where near the Maxx but if I can get through a day - I'm fine with that BUT..... I can't get through the day AND worse..... this thing has not grabbed a 4G signal since I got it and barely gets 3G. I know Maxx is the King of Batteries AND Motorola is the King of Radios BUT when these phones keep going nuts and then can not even perform basic functions!!!! What the hell is going on? Why is this being tolerated? Hidden inside the rant was a real question, IS there a phone that will just simply - WORK? Not asking for perfect just basic dependable functionality. I need a battery and I need a signal. Is that too much to ask from my phone or my cellular carrier? These devices are not inexpensive and the service is not inexpensive. Why is the performance NOT being delivered? Could it be because the audience is captive, who has a choice NOT to have a cell phone these days - a CaveMan that's who everybody else has to have one and we don't ALL live in center city. Really really tired of this.
