I have a Verizon Motorola Droid Razr MAXX and a Droid Razr. Neither of them have service right now but I am in desperate need of a smartphone with service. Both are in new condition. I'm wondering if it is possible to get either of these phones on a prepaid service, regardless of the carrier, it can be Verizon Sprint Straight Talk, I don't care.
We heard they could be delayed, but it looks like everything is a go because Verizon just announced the DROID RAZR HD and the DROID RAZR HD MAXX will hit stores next Thursday, October 18. The DROID RAZR HD will cost $199 and the DROID RAZR HD MAXX will run you $299.
Verizon has officially announced the release of the Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr Maxx HD on October 18. That’s a Thursday.
At the beginning of September, Motorola took the stage announcing the first phones completely under the helm of Google. Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt even made a little speech. We met the Droid Razr HD, Droid Razr Maxx HD, and the Razr M.
So, I haven't seen a straight-forward answer from anyone in the U.S. who has a Verizon Wireless Motorola Razr Maxx AFTER the ICS update (which transformed it into a Global phone) who has successfully used a U.K. prepaid SIM for calls/texts/data while on travel.
Basically, what I need to know, based on the information I've given above, is...
The DROID RAZR HD and DROID RAZR MAXX HD launched on Verizon this past Thursday. We already did an initial hands on of the DROID RAZR HD and now it’s time for the bigger brother, the DROID RAZR MAXX HD. I say bigger brother, but I have to be honest, you can barely tell the difference between the two devices.
Verizon employees are getting some special treatment once again, some of us are still seething over the awesome employees-only red and black Razr Maxx from last year, and now Verizon is laughing at us yet again. Rumor has spilled that more special edition red/black DROIDs are on their way to those on Verizon’s payroll for the DROID RAZR M and DROID RAZR MAXX HD.
Two days ago we reported that Verizon was sending out texts to the DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX owners that an update to Ice Cream Sandwich was looming and just around the corner. And today, an ICS build running on the RAZR has leaked with the build number of 6.16.211.
Time for the news that owners of the DROID RAZR HD and MAXX HD have been waiting for: Jelly Bean has been approved for those devices and will begin rolling out in phases beginning next week per news straight from Verizon:
Friday, Nov. 30: DROID RAZR HD and DROID RAZR MAXX HD by Motorola are the next smartphones to be upgraded to Android 4.1, Jelly Bean.
