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

    Two years ago I ventured into the realm of iOS. My journey was going great. I enjoyed a lot about the place. I laughed in the face of my old OG Droid. Then time passed. Apple has gotten worse. I have made this effort to support companies that I can agree with. Apple making everything from their laptops to their new iPhone a uni body is not where I would like to see tech devices go.

    So my upgrade came up and I was stuck between the Galaxy S3 and the RAZR MAXX. After Amazon having a sale on both and the RAZR MAXX only being 70 dollars for an upgrade, how could I say no? dancedroid So she comes in today! dancedroid

    Today I stop drinking this poisonous kool-aid and get to enjoy the freedom of Android (again). Any tips for when I get to lay hands on this bad Jackson?

    Leave it off and charge it to 100% before even turning it on to activate it. The patience will pay off in the long run as far as your battery acting how you would like it. I am sure by now they will have ICS on it from the factory if not I would install that first and do a factory data reset immediately after that to make sure you have a clean install.

    Other than that enjoy the new phone.

    Thanks for the info! I'm glad you got this in before my ride home. Because I was going to do exactly opposite of what you said.

    I do have one question though. If it does come with ICS on it, should I still do the FDR?

    I would. What could it hurt? It might actually help and since you won't have set it up yet, nothing to lose. Then enjoy.
