I read somewhere (probably in someone's review) that the charger is in the same location as the headset jack. Is this the same as on the LG VX8700? One of the reasons I'm trading that phone in to try this one is because, being a guy with no fingernails......... I can't for the life of me get that little door open on the side of the phone to get to the charging port without tools of some kind. My old Moto (oval-ish flip, black with silver sides...) just had it on the bottom. Easy enough.
Oh, and why is Moto taking away the easy, simple stuff like being able to change the ringer from the outside of the phone? LG didn't offer that either. What gives?
I agree, I recently got the Maxx, after having a krzr k1m and hating that little charging port cover only to find that the maxx had one too. I do however find that the Maxx cover opens easier than the Krzr. I just hate that is is some times a pain trying to get the cable plugged in completely because the port cover gets in the way. The reason that you cannot change the ringer from the outside with the phone closed is because motorola received too many complaints of accidently chaning ringers from users who carry the phone in their pocket. At least that's what I read. Some love it, others not so much.
