    Talked to a sales rep from big red today about a replacement phone on our account and it seems the Maxx is discontinued. His computer showed the device for 99.99 but had none available! I love my Maxx and for those who don't have one you missed the boat!

    That's a shame but I guess its time for them to move on. With the M and HD series out, it makes sense.

    It's always a shame to see our phones being phased out as the HD's will have the same fate next year. I do have to admit, that I am curious as to what the model was or replacement would be for you. The Verizon rep mentions the Maxx showed in his system at $99.99 and also not in stock or supply. The Verizon Trade In value for the Maxx is much higher at $110., I happen to wonder if the difference of the Trade In and there not being a replacement available, worked out to your benefit? Just curious.

    One step closer to a Motorola Nexus device.

    I guess that's why Best Buy was giving them away

    To be honest, if the Galaxy Note III is as big as I heard it's going to be, and the battery life is great (which, lets face it, nothing will compare to the MAXX for a while in that regard), I'd say death to my MAXX as well. With a screen that size, I'm guessing it'd probably have to have a 4000 mAh battery to compete with the MAXX's battery life.

    I dunno my note 2s battery life is probably (at least) comparable to the maxx Hd (and definitely surpasses the original maxx).

    Just out of curiosity on average how much battery life are you getting and how much screen time?

    So, I have Verizon insurance on my Maxx, if it were to break, and they can no longer get this phone, Do you think they will give me the Maxx HD?

    They will probably just give you a refurb with someone else's problem

    Via www.gazelle.com -> flawless condition -> free of water damage they have a trade-in value (earlier this week) of $166.

    They'll probably offer you another phone with an extended battery.

    So...are you asking this question as you dangle your perfectly good phone over the side of a building? :biggrin: If they cannot get you a replacement they have to give you a suitable alternative. It depends on the rep and how willing you are to go to the mat if they say no. But be careful, just because it is not being sold they still might have refurbed units for insurance purposes and it is a spin of the wheel whether the replacement works as good as the original.

    Just had my Maxx replaced with a flawless refurb from Verizon about a week ago.
    They have warranty replacements.
    I suspect Assurion has insurance replacements also.

    We have a business account with quit a few Bionics on it. Assurion ran out of replacement devices a long time ago, but Verizon has continued to ship warranty replacement phones as recently as 3 weeks ago. I would assume the Razr Maxx would have a decent supply as well.

    What kind of issues are you having?
    My original one out of the box was flawless. The JB update hosed mine.
    I told them software issues and the refurb I got is flawless and works the same way.

    Well the first one i got new started this funny blue screen flicker after ICS ota. Sent that one back and got a refurb and that one came to me with a charging problem. It said it was charging but wasnt taking the charge. So far this one the third one no problems yet. But i have noticed a major lag compared to my first one.
