Default Leaving the droid X

Well leaving the droid X forums and the droid x. Just got myself a brand new Motorola Droid Razr Maxx and man is it nice! Grandfathered into it with unlimited data and added tethering to it.

Did you trade-in your DX?
Where, how much?

I believe it's "Unlimited Data" that matters. I will soon be switching to the Razr as well but don't have to worry about any 4g, I have to drive 1.5 hours south to get to 4g coverage area. But the data is what matters, 3g-4g-5g-12g, all data.

Yes you can grandfather the unlimited data with Verizon. I did it when I moved to the razr maxx.

Same with me! Just bought the Razr Maxx on Amazon, and VZW grandfathered me into the unlimited 4g. I was in no hurry to upgrade phones (and thought I wouldnt get an upgrade until august) but then the rep told me that not only could I upgrade today, but I could get 4g for the same price I pay now. So why the heck not? Super excited to get my Maxx in the mail tomorrow!

I also just upgraded from my Droid X, but I got an HTC Rezound. I will miss my DX, as it was my first Android device. I'm loving the Rezound though (especially since unlocking it and flashing an ICS rom), and I don't regret the decision...yet. I saw a window where I could get a great deal on the HTC, avoid the new upgrade fees coming, and grandfather my unlimited data to 4G.
If it wasn't for those last two issues (avoiding fees and keeping unlimited data), I probably would have held on to my DX for quite some time.

Running MIUI ICS has me feeling I could keep the X for QUITE some time.. no phone really entices me yet. The only thing somewhat urging me to go with a new phone is that nobody knows how long Verizon will honor the grandfathering of unlimited data!

Here's my take on new phones....

Wow, smooth, fast, nice screen, 4G is fast.

Where'd the battery go?

Except the Maxx. If the next round of phones (SG3, Inc4G, RazrHD) don't impress me, I might have to go with the Maxx too!

A buddy at work picked up the Razr at the same time I got the Nexus. He didn't like battery life and wanted to change to the same phone as me (the Nexus isn't known for a great battery) until I suggested the Maxx. Turns out he had to pay the initial upgrade cost, then $50 for restocking, then the extra $100 for the Maxx

Maxx is worth every penny. I now have one on 3 lines. 3 months, no regrets.

With the new $100 discount that is supposed to be coming out, I might be jumping over to the Maxx.

I could be wrong, but if you're upgrading from a 3G phone to a 4G phone, you're eligible for a $100 discount. You have to ask for it though.

Well I went and looked at phones yesterday. I liked the size of the Nexus screen, but I liked the Rezound screen the best. The Nexus and Maxx screens had a significant yellow tint to them that I didn't like.

Most roms and kernels these days have a gamma and color adjustment so you can tweak the colors a lot. If it's yellow and you prefer pink, green, blue (or white), you can dial it how you want it to look.
