1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Yes with FoxFi app, it let's your razor/maxx be a wifi hotspot. Very fast too, 20MBPS + on 4G. Five times faster than my home DSL wifi.

    Edit: Oh, forgot I was on the Droid forum. Not sure if Foxfi available for this platform, I know it works great on the razor/maxx. But I did use Easytether on my D1 via usb to my PC. Worked great but not nearly as fast.

    I used PDAnet to USB tether my OG Droid. Free Foxfi hotspot is awesome on the Bionic

    I upgraded three weeks ago from the D1 to the maxx and haven't looked back. Paid $269 for it pre $30 upgrade fee. But now it's available for $199 + $30 upgrade fee. Same price as the razor! I'm realy happy with the maxx, love the big screen, battery life, and speed. But still waiting for 4g in my area. When I do I'll be cancelling my DSL subscription and use Foxfi at home for my PC internet connection. Check out the razor/maxx forum for more info.

    Thanks, I will check it out. I was thinking if I renew my unlimited data plan now, maybe I will be grandfathered in before they discontinued the unlimited data. FYI
    I also get 22 % off because I work for a Co. that qualifies for the discount
    Everyone doesn't know about that.
