    Since I had a good experience buying my Droid Razar from Amazon, I went ahead and purchased the Maxx today. No ship date yet.

    They were showing October 9th for a while. There's NO WAY that can be right! (Right???) Is Amazon playing games with this model? Or is Verizon playing games with Amazon?

    I called 3 local BBuys and they all said that they wouldn't match WF. Newegg does have it right now for 179 but they also make you keep the number for 6 months. Asked BB if they will price match Negg and the girl said manager would but they dont have any in stock. I guess I'll wait for stock.

    Got an automated email from Verizon this morning saying changes have been made to my account. Sounds like the wheels may be turning for preorders!

    Just placed my order on Newegg. Will update this thread as I hear.

    I was tempted to just go to a corporate store and buy one for $300, but I can wait a week or two to save $120. It's not like I *need* this thing, my Rezound still works perfectly.

    Newegg Link for anyone wanting a print out.
    DROID MAXX by MOTOROLA for Verizon Wireless - Wireless Store

    I think we all should have waited till BB had them in stock before hounding them for price matches. Hopefully they will send out some emails this week saying they have them in stock.

    Newegg looks to be the same as Wirefly and Radioshack, going through a 3rd party called Simplexity.

    I just ducked into my local BB and they told me they no longer match prices on contract phones. Safe to say it varies from store to store.

    Thanks for this info! I had to work at it a bit but I ordered mine today from my regular store which was out of stock. I got the same $100 off!

    The official name of the promo is "Motorola $100 device recycle promo", or close to that. The store knew nothing about it. The manager called his boss then his moto rep, who gave him the correct code. They put the promo code into vzw's regular trade in program that isn't very good. The 2 trade in phones are droid3 and X2 to get the $100 when you buy one of the razors or one of the new droids.

    It was worth the effort to get the store personnel up to speed.

    So, thanks davpel!

    Or Newegg. :frown:

    Hmm.... So I checked Newegg to see the status of my order just now, and it isn't there! I'll have to wait till I get home and get the order number from the confirmation email I got from them and try to look it up that way. They have my previous orders from earlier in the year, but not the Maxx.

    Also, it looks like it's up to $229 now.

    OK, false alarm, I guess the "wireless store" is separate from the regular Newegg. I found it. Still no ship date, though.

    And it is $229 for new orders.

    alot of verizon phones are qualifying for 30% off with promo code VERIZON30. the promo code box wasnt popping up while i was trying to order it online through verizon so i called verizon to check on it. the person i talked to said that promo code cant be used until Sept 3 which just so happens to be the day online vzw orders are supposed to ship. so assuming 3rd party orders havent shipped by then, you may be able to get almost the same price by using this promo at that time and choosing to pick it up in store.

    I would go for this on the third but Im leaving the country for two weeks on that day. I wonder how long the promo will last?

    Just went through the order process but didn't see a promo code entry point so I did the online chat thing. answer "we do not currently have a promo code for the maxx at this time."

    you all need to read my entire post before you start wasting time trying to buy the maxx today with a promo code.

    This is really trying my patience. Are any of you going to jump ship and get the Moto X on Verizon? Or is the Maxx worth the wait?
  21. tspangle88

    tspangle88 Well-Known Member

    Well, I could walk into a corporate store and buy one right now if I get THAT impatient. X is still mail-order only.

    I'm going to wait till 9-3. If I don't have a ship date from New egg by then, well, we'll see.... ;)

    The Maxx is worth the wait for build quality IMHO.

    People are different.

    I think they are both now in your Verizon Corporate store. Both are VERY nice.

    I suggest you go handle them both and I bet the instant you pick the one up that is best for you you will know it.

    The one you pick for you might not be the one I picked for me.

    The OP was about paying $199 as opposed to $299 not really about the wait. I paid 299 for the gnex the day it came out I paid 299 for the razr maxx hd soon after it came out and I dont want to pay 299 again for the newest flagship.
    I think since motorola is pushing the x and there doesnt seem to be huge interest in the maxx, 199 is a legit price for a great phone. yes I'll wait no big deal ive got a great phone right now.

    Anyone else think it is a bit ridiculous that those of us that pre-ordered (Aug 11 for me) still don't have a phone in our hands while verizon has units sitting on thier shelves.

    We may have ordered 3rd party, but that still doesn't seem right.

    Moto, I've been a loyal customer and bought phones on release day though 3rd parties... why this time have you not decided to ship to them?
