VWZ Bull ****!

Ok, so i went to get this phone today... AND, VZW no longer has the $5.00 / month txt plan...

i was told on the phone that i would need to move to the $10 plan (or drop it) to get this phone.

that's bull. i dont want to change anything, just my phone!

with GSM; I can just pull the SIM any time i want to!

that's the last straw! I'm getting an iPhone on 07/28/2007 (when my VZW contract is up)...

nuts to there locked down over priced crap...

also; check out the V9m or v9c phones... they spank this one...

I am giving my K1m to my dad, and am in need of a new phone. I was set on getting this phone, but so many people are talking about the new RAZR2 or vpm. I want to purchase the best phone. I don't care which has a better mp3 player as I don't use it, and the only pictures I take on my phone are for fun, not for printing. What makes the v9 so much better? I have Verizon if that matters. Thanks for any input.

MP3 Player issues with RAZR MAXX

I have several issues related to using the phone as an MP3 player, either in bluetooth stereo mode or with stereo earphones, as follows:

A. phone locks up after either using text-messaging or telephone features when in MP3 mode, requiring removal of battery - both in bluetooth mode, and also wen using earphones;
B. earpiece loses right-side sound after stopping MP3 player to send a text message, then restarting MP3 player;
C. in bluetooth mode, cannot return to MP3 player after placing a call using bluetooth mode. works okay when receiving a call (and bluetooth returns to MP3 after call), but not when placing a call;
D. extremely low volume thru earphones when in MP3 mode, so bad that you actually cannot hear low-volume songs at all

It works for me !!

I just got my new Max Razr and am very pleased . Everything works as promised . I would like to be able to set the Vibrate and then ring ,but have not found a way to do it. That is not a big deal.
Battery life is not so great , but last for a day plus.
All and all this is a terrific phone.

Is this true? Just to confirm!

MAXX decision

Okay, so after waiting all these months for this phone to come out, I went out once again yesterday to see how I felt about it. I cannot get past how masculine and rugged this phone is to me. I have decided against it simply because of its looks and I think that the KRzr is the phone for me. There really isn't much that I like at this time but I want to replace my Q.

Wish the Maxx came in a different color or at least I wish that the keypad wasn't black. It's just boring to me. Don't see the big difference between this and a regular krzr aside from the extra $100!

Motorola V9m

In case anyone is interested. If you are on the fence, not sure what to buy take a look at the link. If nothing else, the price of the Maxx Ve should drop if this comes soon. »

Why does Moto continue to make RAZR's?.... seems like the name has been out long enough now that the general public, (not us junkies that hang out on here and other cellular info sites like crackheads), are thoroughly confused by the different "editions" and "upgrades" of this model... Shouldn't Moto have come out with something new surrounding this style, but with some new flare, or curves, or size, or thickness, or something?

RAZR's are way too popular and well known to have this many codes and model numbers associated with this name... It's hard enough for those of us within the industry to keep it straight, so I know it has to be tough for those out there with little to no knowledge of how the industry works and evolves...

Maxx is missing some e815 features

Overall the maxx is a very good phone, but a few small things bug me:

When i plug in the charger, the phone initially says battey charging but doesn't continue to do so. Its nice to see that message to confirm the plug hasn't come out of the wall socket beneath the desk. Plus there is no charge complete message (if the phone is on) - why not ?

The clock on the outside screen is tiny - any way to enlarge this ? (digital, not analog).

I greatly preferred the e815 contact list which showed both name and # in much larger font on the screen than the maxx. Any way to change the contact list display ?

Another minor annoying thing is that if you key in a letter to find someone on your contact list (say "A"), then pause, then key in an...

Downgrade from the V710 on the Display

The 65,536 (16-bit)display is a deal killer.

What a shame to downgrade from a V710 display to have this phone. The usual websites were wrong again on the display being 262k: ... » ... » ... »

I want something as good as my E-815

Well its that time again, time for me to read everyone's reviews, read the forums and make a decision on the new phone for the next 2 years. It'll be hard parting ways with in my opionon with the best cell phone I've owned. Even though the camera wasn't the best, it froze up and had to reset on a daily basis, and looked like a little brick in my pocket. It never would have traded it for a fancy, slow, slim, "cool" phone. The E815 was just always very reliable for what it was- A phone.

Some things I got spoiled with and I need with my new phone....
1) Realiability (good reception)

2) Phone Speed ( I don't want anything as slow as my brothers Razor's, krazors' , Lozer's...

3) I want the E815- T9! texting! I tested the texting on b...

4: Play buttons on outside very nice
5: Stereo bluetooth capable

2: Ring-tone can't make any mp3 on the phone a ring tone
3: ABC is the default text input setting with no way to make Itapeng default, have to change it every time
4: Can't personalize the menus like on a 710
5: can't open phone while in the clip that doesn't come with th...

Using MPT with the Maxx?

I currently have an E-815 and use the Backup assistant but I'm reading that it doesn't work on the Maxx. Will MPT support it? I have that also and will use it to transfer my contacts if needed. Thanks.

Getting rid of my Q for a MAXX

I need to get away from the PDA versatility. It is a waste for me. SO, I have been waiting for the MAXX. I also like the LG 9400 but since I have all of the chargers and other accessories for Motorola , I thought I'd stick with Motorola. THAT, plus the fact that I've had horrible luck with LG's. My question is this: My Q will have the same charging port and use the same accessories for charging (car charger, home charger) as the MAXX, right? It looks the same but just wanted to confirm.

MOTORAZR maxx Ve Screen, ...etc

I read alot of people views about the screen not being 18-bit (262K).
First of all, if you haven't checked it out for yourself, don't jump to conclusions based on specs. The LED screen on the maxx Ve is one of the best I've seen on a cell phone. If you look at most cell phones very carefully, you can tell where the spaces are between each pixel. Because of the QVGA resolution on a screen that size, it's hard to tell with the naked eye. Also, the screen on the Samsung A990 wasn't nearly as bright and vibrant as the maxx Ve.
Second, if you actually held the maxx Ve, you'll notice it is alot more sold than its predecessor, the V3. I used to think I was going to break the V3 every time I held it because of its cheap plastic housing. Not so w...
