    Just got the MAXX...used to have the iPhone 4s and its horrendous battery life and dumbing down of a phone. Took the Apple Fan Boy glasses off and have seen the Light!! :)
    Wanna get this lap dock but wanted know if folks have hooked up the MAXX with no cables (or minimum of cables)
    ..and your opinion of this setup...I have unlimited data and would like to get rid of my (Vz 4G LTE 32gb) iPad if i can save some loot doing so???! Thx for your help...

    I know of at least one thread somewhere that describes a minor surgery with a Dremmel tool and the RAZR fit the Bionic cradle (not sure if it was the RAZR or MAXX, but considering the phone thickness, it was probably the MAXX), and worked like a dream.

    I'm using the bionic lapdock with a razr, just had to perform minor surgery to the lapdock with a dremmel tool ( like FoxKat said ) and it's working pretty good.

    I also performed the minor surgery on my Bionic Lapdock and my MAXX works great with it. But I will say I haven't noticed any battery drain or anything called evbridge. I checked the battery usage monitor and it doesn't show up.

    ...ok..thx iolks.
    I was thinking last night that maybe a lap dock 100 would be a better move over the Bionic...no?... I do know that batt life on 100 is 5 hrs. & on the bionic LD its 8-10...but besides that any other advantages with the 100?
    thx again [ so glad to see a thread and site dedicated to us]

    Beyond the fact that it's designed to work with the RAZR out of the box, I don't know that there are really any advantages. The larger 500 is the only lapdock that really stands out from the rest with features.

    I am using my MAXX in the Bionic Lapdock, works and charges just fine with no issues. I had to remove some of the plastic around the HDMI and USB pegs so the MAXX would seat nicely.

    I got my lapdoc yesterday and going to do some work on it this morning. I was able to find a store that was like 5 minutes from my house that had one in stock (last one). For $50 bucks you can't go wrong. I will let everyone know how it goes with the "work" on it. I might try to post a pic or two. I can't find any pictures anywhere.

    I am using the Bionic lapdock to send this out. It seems to be working great. I am going try to insert some pics I took after the work to get it to fit.

    The last one is where I put some electrical tape over the area where the hole was to prevent anything from going in and to make it look better.
