    Just got my htc vivid lte device yesterday and have had nothing but data connection issues. I'll give them a last chance at the store to troubleshoot but I might just stay away from lte devices for now especially since I dont even live in lte areas. Can anyone confirm the atrix 2 is much better than atrix 1 and the htc inspire? How does it hold up against the sgs2? And last question, does this device have led notifications?

    I love my Atrix 2. When you are at the store waiting for the tech guys to try and figure out what's wrong with your phone, spend a few minutres playing with the display Atrix 2. I think you'll be impressed by it.

    "Yes, it does have one. It's on the upper right corner of the phone's face."

    This answer is to the LED light question. It is in one of the threads on this page.

    Cool thanks, just a little concerned with dev suppport. I wish root was easy and cm7 available in the near future.

    sys did you trade in your Vivid for a Atrix? I am looking at both phones and the Atrix has the better price but the Vivid does have LTE which who knows when anyone will get it

    HTC is not known for their speaker and radio quality. On the other hand, moto is known for good strong radios and speakers, so if you are having data connection issues, this may be an issue with the vivid, and not just a sample defect. The screen on the vivid is better than the atrix2 (I'm a happy atrix2 owner), tho, so if that is important to you, you might want to try another vivid before you move to the atrix2. The atrix2 is a solid phone, though, and will probably give you better battery life as well.

    FWIW, my $300 Moto Defy is much better, in both respects, than my "flagship" HTC Sensation 4G. It consistently gets 10-12dBm better signal than the Sensation (same with every other HTC I've experienced going back to the HTC Touch Pro), and when testing a Skype call, with the Defy on the table, I turned the volume down because it was a bit loud. I thought the sound was coming thru the speaker, but it was actually coming thru the "earpiece". Conversely, it is difficult to hear calls on the Sensation in mildly loud restaurants.

    I went to 2 at&t stores and couldn't find atrix 2. I was told it's online-only for now. :/

    Did you try Best Buy? $50 cheaper, and they probably have it in stock!

    That must be for your area only. All the AT&T stores around here have them, as do all the Best Buy stores.

    Maybe it is my area... but they don't have Atrix 2 in stock or on display. I called 2 Best Buys near me and they have Atrix 2 in stock but not on display. I just want to play with one before committing to buy it... :/

    I was going to get one off of Amazon Wireless ($50 and no tax), and they have a 30 day return policy. Probably the best bet for me.

    Call Best Buy, tell them you want to purchase one, but have to see it in action first. They should be more than willing to get one out of the box and set it up for you to use, I would think. I mean, it's a $500 device. Would they expect you to buy a TV based on the picture shown on the cardboard box?
