Don't Buy a Droid Razr Maxx

Member

I've had more problems with my Droid Razr Maxx.  Another issue came up today and I spent 1 hour and 15 minutes with Verizon and Motorola on the phone.  After the factory reset wouldn't work, Verizon offered to replace the phone.  This would have been my 3rd brand new phone in 6 weeks!!!  I didn't even bother downloading the ICS software because of all the complaints people are having.  I'm getting a new IPhone tomorrow.  I'm done with Motorola products.

I have had zero issues with mine. It is the best Android device I have had.

3 phones in 6 weeks?

could it be the user?

im a beleiver that many problems with smart phones are because of the user and apps, not the phone

I have the standard razr but am considering exchanging for a maxx, or possibly an S3 or Nexus.  My kids have ipods and they have been a pain to deal with.  So I'm not much of an apple fan.

What specificaly are the problems you are having with the phone?

Funny, its not the user.  Even Verizon and Motorola people couldn't get the phone to work.

I like the phone, however doing basic changes, the phone doesn't respond to them or recognize them.  I had only downloaded 1 app because of the problems I've encountered with this phone.

Happy for those of you who've had no problems.  I wish I was in that boat.

The first phone I had completely froze and none of the buttons worked.  I had not downloaded any apps or added anything.  I only had it about a week or so.

Yesterday I tried to put a pause on the voice mail password so I wouldn't have to enter my password everytime I called voicemail and the phone would not save the change.  Even after I did the factory reset today with Verizon on the phone, it still would not save the change.  I could still use the phone, however I would have to put my password in each time and when I used the bluetooth feature through my new car stereo.  It's supposed to be an easy change and I followed the directions, however it didn't work.

  I just did it, I went in and modified the VoiceMail contact, and where it had *86, I changed it so it looks like this

*86,,,1,2,3,4,# and it worked fine for me. What did you put in?

I did what you have listed and I also did it without the commas between the numbers in my password.  The phone would not save the changes.  Its a defect plain and simple.

I would like to post the pic of the contact info, but every time I try to paste it in, it removes the picture. If you want to direct message me, I can send it to you...
