You know, I totally missed the part about the phone being converted to the MAXX in your OP, but caught it when it was mentioned in a later post. It's all too obvious that SOMETHING changed when the battery was replaced. "What" is the mystery that needs solving. I'll tell you this...it's got me frazzled (and I imagine you too!) I'll do some more research and see if I can come with anything plausible or reasonable.
