    I was considering it. But you could probably just sell your RAZR on Ebay for $250 and buy a Maxx for $350. That's cheaper than the conversion kit without the work and chance you screw it up

    I don't know why the conversion kits are so much. It seems like they should be less than $50 it's just a battery and the phone back

    Exactly what I did, Craigslist, bought the Maxx for 300 but sold my RAZR to a friend for 100, could of listed mine and probably could of nearly broke even.

    The Kits are not really expensive if you think about it. Just the Motorola EB40 battery by itself goes for $50 to $60. Depending on what part you get with the kit, you are at a minimum getting a battery, adhesive, back housing and battery cover. If these parts are OEM which is what most of us prefer you are right there at around $100+.

    I upgraded mine and absolutely love it. Upgrade Droid Razr to Razr Maxx. I would highly recommend it.

    I also recently noticed the price drop. That might force me to do this. :)

    Well I ordered the conversion kit on Saturday and received it today. It took about 30-45 minutes to install. Install was pretty simple. Time to foxkat and enjoy longer battery life!
