    why does it feel that the bionic is slowly drifting away from all sources? vzw/mot being slow to update software, no response on the locked bootloader with past proposal to unlock, it seems this phone is quietly disappearing

    I know Moto wishes it was never released. Blame Verizon for that one. :)

    If its any consolation to you it will continue to get good support. Moto and Verizon won't let it slip into obscurity just yet.

    Btw they are flying off the shelves right now because of the price. Very hot seller.

    and really with the way VZ is throwing out new phones every couple of weeks it seems,..I am sure we are not the only ones that feel left out or left behind.
    in a couple of months we will be hearing the same thing about the Razr and Nexus users because by the end of the 1st quarter they will be launching the Quad core phones and all current devices will be considered a dying technology?
    Thank goodness for the developers in these forums if it wasn't for them I am sure that no phone a few weeks old would have any support whatsoever !

    Just my two cents worth ?

    i got mine on release day also. i'm still in love. i knew the resound and nexus were coming but i wanted the bionic. then they released the razr, it's a nice phone and all that, but i'm just not that impressed. and today they announced the razr maxx and the d4 and i'm still not all that impressed. i got exactly what i wanted and i'm happy.

    How do you think recent Razr owners are feeling today? With the announcement of the Razr Maxx, which is exactly the same as the Razr, exact same hardware, exact same size/form factor - but with a larger battery somehow shoehorned in. I would guess Razr owners might be feeling a little abandoned as well. Hmmmm, I wonder if there are any "let's start a class action lawsuit" threads over on the Razr forum...

    No grounds for such a lawsuit. It'd be like releasing a 2012 Corvette, then a 2012.5 Corvette, then a 2013 model. It's nice to have the latest, but there's no guarantee that you'll have the latest of anything for a week, or a month, or whatever.

    I admit, I'd be extremely frustrated if I were a RAZR owner though. I look at the RAZR MAXX as the phone Motorola should have released in the first place. Do note though that the MAXX is slightly thicker to accommodate the battery; it's almost the same size/form factor.

    I see Motorola moving way too fast on their phones, and unless they present a unified plan of support that guarantees updates out to a specified time period, they will eventually alienate users. As an example, I'd be very frustrated if I were a Droid X2 or Droid 3 owner, modern, dual-core phones released not long ago, and Motorola announced they wouldn't be releasing Android 4 for them (not saying they are or aren't, just an example). Further, the RAZR MAXX and the Droid 4 aren't coming with ICS, because of their development cycle. Motorola is crowding the market with phones, and that doesn't give buyers a fuzzy feeling --what if the phone they buy now is replaced with a new model in 60-90 days, leaving them in the dust?

    Still happy with my Bionic, but I'm holding Motorola to that promise that Bionic and RAZR owners will get Android 4. I bought the Bionic after Motorola made that promise, and it was part of my decision making process. I'm also hoping that Motorola will eventually unlock bootloaders like they said they planned to, although I'm not holding out hope on that one.

    Im a razr owner...get on average 14-16 hours of battery life. I really am very happy with this phone. A bigger battery doesnt matter to me!
