Hey there,
Here is a suggestion, try looking for Atrix that suffer from Hard bricks and tare use them as spare parts for you own 2.
They shouldn't cost to much, and I guess you could find some on ebay.

Yes, I have tried this already once. I ended up fixing what was wrong with the phone that was supposed to be for parts.

I ordered another one now that has no way in hell of being repairable(cost more than the last one that got repaired). So the goal is to swap the logic board into the new one and save the rest for a rainy day.

This will be my 5th atrix

1. was lost to a cab driver
2. is going strong
3. is the dud that needs work (bought for a friend)
4. is the parts phone that is now the nicest one and repaired (keep around as a backup/ loner)
5. is on its way to complete 3

Good thing I bought the screen protector with a lifetime warranty .
