    Mine works for YouTube.... I don't use the other app. It may be restricted. Some movie apps are.from what I've heard.

    And also think about how long you need it to be. Six feet might be cheaper, but you might not be able to lean back on your couch with it.

    I got a 15 ft one on Amazon.com which was their brand and am very happy with it.

    Can anyone confirm if netflix or hbo go will work out of the hdmi out. Also off topic but I also heard that it will not take 16/9 photos at 8mp, and that you have to switch the camera from 8mp to 6mp. Also I wanted to know if you can make ring tones from wav files of if I have to convert them. The phone does not play .avi files but it will play mp4. Also does anyone know if The phone can play video files out of hdmi out that have 5.1 audio. The thunderbolt only plays videos that are 2.0 (stereo) I have the thunderbolt right now and it works for me, but with the unlimited date going away with the new phones

    Yes.. the hdmi out will work with Netflix. However..there is an annoying clicking noise that happens during the entire playback..only on hdmi. So using the lapdock 500 or just hdmi out to a TV this click will show its face.. If you use the phones speaker or headphones/headphone jack no noise.

    Does it output high Def 720?

    I have a question for everyone. Can I use a HDMI micro to micro cable to use my phone to get netflix on and then use the canble to transfer it to my Acer tablet to watch on. Larger screen. Trying to use my phone to get the movie due to 4g and tablet only being wi/fi but bigger screen. Any thoughts? New to the Maxx.

    Why wouldn't you just put the netflix app on your tablet and use wifi. Depending on how fast your home internet is it should be as fast or faster than your phone on 4g .

    I am trying to use the tablet when I am away from any wi/fi access. I do not have any 3g or 4g service on it. Cost way to much for the amount of time I would use it. Trying to figure a round about way to watch the shows on the bigger screen.

    Foxfi is a free Wi-Fi tethering app. You can run a hotspot from your razr, then you use Wi-Fi and you'll be using your phones data on your tablet.
