What is an unlocked phone?
An unlocked phone is a device that is not bound to any carrier or plan. It allows you to choose your phone first and your carrier second. Upon selecting a plan, simply insert the carrier's SIM card into the phone and you're ready to go. If you decide you want to change carriers down the road or want to take an international trip, it's as simple as replacing your existing SIM card with a new SIM and activating your new plan.
What are the benefits of an unlocked phone?
Freedom: Choose the carrier with the best service or price. If you find a better deal later, you have the ability to change to a different carrier.
Travel: Take your phone internationally and use the carrier of your choice. It's as easy as inserting an active SIM card.
Selection: Choose the phone with the features you want, whether or not your carrier sells it, and get more service options without a contract.
How do I set up my unlocked phone?
The first thing you’ll need is a SIM card for your desired carrier. When activated, the SIM card will let your phone connect to your carrier’s network. If you decide to upgrade to a newer unlocked phone in the future, you can easily remove the SIM card from your old phone and put it in your new phone—just make sure you get the right size of SIM card (nano, micro, or standard) for your phone. If you want to use your phone while traveling internationally, you can easily buy a SIM card for a carrier that operates where you’re traveling. As long as it’s activated, you can just swap SIM cards when you arrive at your destination.

So, I waited for release day for the RZR HD. There were 2 reasons that I wanted a RZR: The first is Smart Actions. It is basically a macro builder which allows you to automatically set the ringer off at certain times of day or based on location. Basically its a lot like the Outlook Rules for desktop email. The second item that had me eagerly waiting was the style. I simply like rugged looking phones. This one fits the bill. It is sleek but it is a nice shape for me. Some will call it boxy or square but I like the hard corners. The Kevlar back is a nice touch but if you get a case like I did you will never see it. Still, its a nice design choice and adds to the industrial/rugged look i mentioned earlier.
I didn't feel the need to go with the Maxx because a larger battery isn't worth $100 to me. If I traveled heavily or if I was on my phone constantly I would want the upgrade but I have been pleasantly surprised with the battery of the RZR HD. I used it on and off all day for normal stuff: Checking and sending emails, a few phone calls and my son spent 2 hours playing Plants vs. Zombies. I still have 60% of battery left and I took it off charge 17 hours ago.
The call quality is probably the best I have ever had on a cell phone. It is really clear for me and for the other party. I was extremely happy as I just assumed "ok" call quality was a fact of all cell phones.
I connect my phone via BT to my aftermarket car stereo and have no issues at all. Again, call quality is excellent.
I have not yet used the rear camera but I have put the front camera through its paces with the "Face Unlock" feature and I have no issues with the front camera.
The transitions from screen to screen are smooth. There is occasional choppiness but I have come to see that as standard depending on what else is running (I'm talking to you app addicts!) but it isn't a problem for me.
There is the standard suite of crap-ware courtesy of Verizon that you can't uninstall but at least ICS has the ability to choose favorite apps for the tray so you won't have to flip past "Verizon Navigator" and "Slacker Radio" every time you look for an app.
Overall I really like the phone. I highly recommend it.
I just wanted to add that although I do like my phone, my only complaint is the camera and I've adjusted my rating from five stars to four stars. The camera on this phone really stinks. It takes okay pictures when you do not use a flash. If you have to use a flash, then the image quality is that first generation web cam. Seriously. I've gotten some cute pics with it, but that is few and far in between. It does fine in natural light. My last phone, the Thunderbolt, completely lost the ability to sync the flash with the camera a year after I purchased it. So, I am used to not using a flash... however, IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A PHONE WITH A WONDERFUL CAMERA, THIS IS NOT THE PHONE FOR YOU!
Pro-Battery life is insane. I travel a lot and it is great.
Con-wifi pickup is not so great. I can be sitting beside my wife with her S3 and she gets signal from our WIFI and I can not. My Xoom has not problems in this location either, just the RAZR HD.
Something I can't figure out- volume keeps adjusting itself for notifications and ringtones.
