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

    Thursday went to verizon for a new phone. Loved the android thunderbolt, except battery was awful. My daughter has iphone, and pushed it on me, as everyone else loves theirs. I hate it. Miss the android. Taking it back for maxx, but hear complaints of screen quality. Should I get it now, or wait for the next motorola or HTC to come out? Also, best buy will match internet pricing, and $50 rebate for bringing in a old phone. Maxx will cost me only $149.00.

    Two questions. What's your old android phone and is it necessary to wait for a better device?

    The max has a nice screen but it uses a pentile matrix whichbhas larger Blue and Red sub pixels and can make the outlines of certain things look a little choppy. It really isn't all that noticeable but I would recommend going to your local VZW store and checking out the demo model for your self.

    Old phone is Thunderbolt. Dont really need a new phone, just want to. I may hold off for a month or so, and see what other 4G phones come out

    IL for now... waiting for the day we can move back
    I would either get the Maxx or wait for the Razr HD... the problem with waiting is you never can count on the actual release date...

    +1 . Also, ppl here will attack me for saying this but the Droid Bionic is one hell of a deal especially considering the price. U grab one of those, piping an extended battery, go to "About Phone" and check to make sure u have the latest update and you're undefeatable. Otherwise, definately either get the Maddy or wait for the Maddy HD. I'd wait a week or two just to see if anymore details about the HD razr's release date come out cause if it's right around the corner, you'd hate to get the best phone and get one-upped a week later. But unless it isncoming out very very soon, justngo ahead and GET THE RAZR MAXX NOW!!!! Ifeels sooo sexy on ur hand knowing that u can have all the 4g u want all day w/o running out

    I have no issues with the MAXX screen. Watched Netflix while on the elliptical today. Looked great, lasted forever. Best phone I've had. Dig it :)

    best buy (or any other retailer) has never matched internet pricing.....and for something with modern tech. the 720p HD screen razr maxx with 13 mpx camera (the one moto released in china a year ago) is coming here soon, or if you'd like to spare yourself moto's bugs get a galaxy nexus now :D

    Wait for the Rezound to be discounted again. Install the extended battery! You will have a great phone, camera, and battery life.
