    Whats up guys, first post dancedroid , I cracked my screen a while ago and it's finally starting to annoy me for whatever reason. Being that I'm still on the RAZR battery, battery life has been less than ideal. Is it possible to buy someone's bricked RAZR Maxx off ebay or craigslist and basically swap the guts of my RAZR into their casing? I know the battery stuff can swap over because they sell the upgrade kit but will the screen and digitizer swap over as well? Or should I just get the battery upgrade kit and the replacement screen and digitizer?

    Thanks!

    Although both phones are basically the same, with the battery being larger it has a different case configuration for the back and the sim/SD-card slot. People have successfully changed a RAZR into a MAXX by swapping put the back and battery but I am not aware of a full motherboard transplant from RAZR to MAXX.

    You can get a razr to maxx conversion kit for 126 on amazon. Im not sure what a razr digitizer costs though

    swap

    You can swap everything over to the maxx!! Just watch a couple of you tube videos and its pretty easy to do! Just be careful removing the screen from the motherboard!
