    Public Service Announcement: Asurion is OUT OF STOCK when it comes to Bionics. Supervisor said they will not be receiving more. My girl got a replacement when she smashed the hell out of her bionic. Well the referb she got likes to reboot all the time. So we went to get that one switched out just now and they have NO MORE BIONICS! We were forced to get a Razr, and no they would NOT give out a Maxx!

    So be warned.

    Hmm sounds like this could be the final nail in the coffin for the bionic owners out there.

    I'm sure verizon still has a back stock of refurbished phones....
    Thank God because mine still under warranty for another month.

    Wow this really sucks. It wouldnt be so bad if the original razr had a removable battery so we could at least have the option to buy an extended one like i have with my bionic..

    You could buy a razr to maxx conversion kit, or sell the razr and buy a maxx.

    I would not accept that as an answer from them, unless they were willing to waive the $100 deductible. Getting offered a different phone with the warranty claims through VZW/Moto are a different story since there is no deductible.

    If I have to pay for a warranty replacement, you are going to give me the same phone or better.

    I found out asurion are thieves from the consumerist and dropped them, thought about going with ensquared, but realized that since 1991 I've never lost or physically broken a device. Why have I given away $1700 or so? I was stupid.

    i have thought about dropping my complete coverage or whatever its called, but I'm worried that I will lose some of the perks of having my account. I still have unlimited data, still have the $20/month data credit, so I pay $10/month for unlimited data. I am not willing to risk having it mess up anything on my account, so I just accept that I am throwing money away at asurion and move on. :p

    Is it wise to just cancel asurion and save some cash? Because dont we have like a year warranty on our bionics through moto?

    I believe the kit is around 70usd and if you aren't handy with a dremel the bracket that fits the bigger battery is around 25usd

    I was having issues with bionic so verizon offered me a razr maxx. They started with offering a razr but I told them I had the extended battery and I didn't want to lose my all day charge. They agreed with me and sent me the maxx... Then when I got my refurbished maxx I was getting horrible battery life only 5 hours so I called and they said that it was a problem with ics with that phone so I convinced them to send me a gs3. This phone is sick. Unlocked bootloader, huge screen 2 gigs of ram and snapdragons processor.

    Personally, i bought the bionic for a reason. I've not seen one phone yet that i like better, so anything else they could send me would be a lesser phone to me.

    I just hope that changes by the time I'm up for an upgrade (though I'm quite happy that my bionic has held up the way it has).

    I couldn't possibly agree more. I'm seriously considering getting my wife a new razr m (she'll never notice) so I can put my clean esn 8 Gb bionic away in case I need it some day.

    How did you pull that off? I've tried to complain and it was hard enough getting a replacement bionic let alone a gs3. I would love that!

    One more reason to not bother with the waste of money that is mobile phone insurance :icon_ banana:
