Yea take it back. If it gets worse they may try to say you dropped it or something.
Easily...if they paid any more it wasnt by much. The phones are selling on amazon for $149.99 right now! That's right both the Maxx/non-Maxx versions of the Razr HD are available on amazon wireless for $149.99. Verizon charges $199 for the Razr HD and $299 for the Razr Maxx HD. If you think they're not robbing people you're blind, or stupid, or a Verizon shareholder. If amazon is making a profit (which I assure you, they are) selling these phones for up to half of what Verizon is selling them for, you can bet Verizon pays somewhere under $100 for these phones.
If you look at the Maxx, Verizon is basically charging $100 for ~800mAh more battery and 16gb more internal storage. This alone is a rip off.
I'm not sure how amazon can make a profit with the price they're asking for these phones (I'm guessing they make their margins in the volume they deal) but I suggest people looking to buy one of these phones jump on it. Or if you have recently purchased one of these phones, return it (within your 30 days, or possibly 14 days -- MAKE SURE YOU READ THE FINE PRINT AND FIGURE OUT WHICH ONE IT IS) and go through amazon to save yourself $150.
