    So with the Verizon leap year sale I ordered the Maxx. I am a bit giddy. I do have a question. I have a rooted phone but at this point I don't plan to root the maxx at least not for a while. Is there away to get a back up of app data with out rooting? I don't mind redownloading the apps but would love to not lose all my data.

    I was afraid you where going to say that. Not sure I want to root right away with it being such a new phone.. Will have to ponder the pros and cons.

    I just took advantage of the same deal! But, its backordered till March 15, so I still have to wait. But... my upgrade date was March 15, and they moved it so I could take advantage of this deal, which made me :biggrin:

    Someone please tell me I can tether with the Maxx without rooting! (I am currently using Easy Tether, hoping it will work with the Maxx!)

    Anyway.. the next two weeks are gonna be long......

    Yes you should be able to use easy tether with out rooting I did with my droid X(I just got my Charge two weeks ago from my brother not loving it) with no problems. Yeah I see its not going to ship for a little while but the price was very good and then selling my charge should make it a good deal for sure. Sounds like its a great phone! :) But your right the next two weeks are going to be long...;)

    I am coming from an X too. I love it and was going to wait awhile... but I couldnt pass on this deal! But geez.... the taxes were $47!! grrrrr...Oh well. :)

    Glad to hear the tethering will still work!

    I also dont plan on rooting, at least for awhile. If its as good as I keep seeing everyone say... Not sure I will even bother rooting.

    Cant wait! :)

    47??!! Yikes mine was only 12 dollars. I like rooting for the backup I love Titanium but this is such a new phone I worry I could mess up the rooting and then I am stuck. I will not lose that much stuff so I will probably back up the apps that let me and start fresh. I am very excited! :p Had I known they where going to have this sale I would have kept my Droid X just a little longer.

    I'm actually back on the phone with Verizon to verify the tax rate. They are telling me that the tax is on the retail price, not what I paid! (retail is $649.99 according to Verizon) Ummm.... I'm not happy about that. I am in Nevada and they say its a Nevada thing.

    I dont get it.

    My Backup Pro will backup your applications, data and photos to a SD card. No root required.
