    Hello everyone, I finally ended my contract with Tmobile and made the switch over to Verizon and the Razr Maxx. Any tips on how to maximize the phones potential would be greatly appreciated. Not new to Android though. Had a galaxy 2 before making the switch.

    I would start by reading the smartphone battery discussions section. You will learn how best to get the most out of your battery. Follow FoxKat's advice and your battery will be good to go. If you haven't done so yet, make sure you fully charge your Maxx before using it.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of Maxx. Have fun!

    Will do thanks for the advice, so is this the best Android OS phone out for Verizon? They told me it was but then again that's what they're supposed to say, lol.

    If your talking blur vs sense vs vanilla android it's all personal preference. I use Go launcher because sense was too common and boring for me. I like my phone to be totally different from everyone else's. As far as actual Android OS's, 4.0 is the latest and I think the best. Most in here would agree. It's much better that 2.3
