USB Connection to PC?

Hi. I have a Razr and just tried to connect it using the USB connection. My PC tells me device driver not recognized. I tried to download & install a PC Charger Driver from Motorola, but no luck. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to get my PC to pick up my Razr as a USB device on my PC? Thanks!

Music in Mono :(

I used stereo headphones (that work!) for the first time with music on my Droid Razr and listened to Pandora and the audio only came out of one ear. Is this normal? I looked for a setting that might be set to mono but couldn't find anything. Please help.

data and tethering connection problems...anyone else?

I'm on my 2nd razr and I'm still having multiple data connectivity issues...the phone regularly drops its data connection then reconnect, additionally tethering has been virtually useless, right now I'm writing this on the phone while my laptop is connected to its hotspots in a 4g/LTE coverage area and my laptop (nor my ipad) can browse websites but they are both connected to the the same time my phone is browsing without a problem (albeit its dropped the data connection twice while I was typing this, but reconnected both times).

Anyone else seeing this issue? Know of a resolution? Verizon doesn't seem to even know the issue exists and can't find a solution.

Razr Dead?


Bought the Razr....played with it til it died...plugged it in for the night then the next day it would not turn on no matter what was done to it. Even with it plugged in to charge and not. The only thing that worked was the flashing green light at the top.

What would cause this?? Any suggestions for fixing it?

Calendar Issues

I have two google accounts synced. One WAS enabled to sync calendars but is not anymore. This is the account i signed the phone up with so I cannot delete it. The other IS enabled to sync calendars.

The account that WAS enabled still syncs and the calendars pop up when the phone is shut down and turned back on.

I cannot get the calendars that ARE synced to be the only ones visible.

Does this make sense? HElp! Thanks!

Can't remove the battery?

Really Motorola? In this day and age you make a phone you can't remove the battery? So now we have to go the apple route and pay $50+ and send in our phone to get the battery replaced?

Very lame. Sad

Possible Screen Problem

So......I got the razr today. Awesome phone to start with, but as I was programming it, I noticed that when there is an all black screen that there are lines or ink blot looking things in the screen. The lines do not show up under normal use or when there are colors other then black displayed If you want to see what I am talking about, turn off the flash on the camera, cover up the camera lens and take a picture so you end up with a black picture. Now view that picture in a dark room and you will most likely see black lines or ink plot looking marks in the screen. Rest assured, I went back to the Verizon store immediately and there happened to be a Motorola Representative there at the time. I asked to speak with him. I actually looked at his...

Any Calling/Connection/Text problems out there?

I just bought the razr a few days ago and VZW just replaced it yesterday; thinking/HOPING the first one I got just happened to be a dud.

Basically it wouldn't make calls or ring when someone was calling on occassion; same with texts. It would work, then not, then work, then not etc...I would have to do the "resend text message" a bunch of times before it would send one, in a good 4g coverage area with full bars...Or make a call and it would go to the screen as though it's connecting the call but would never ring; multiple times, different numbers etc. Called the phone from another phone and it wouldn't ring etc.

VZW forced me to do a hard reset, same problem, so they swapped it and the SIM card just in case.

The phone worked fine ...

The entire RAZR series was crap (V, V3M, KRZR, RIZR, ROCKR, Sliver, etc) and The MOTO Droid line has been Crap ..... Coupled with a Captive Battery .... I'm thinking ...mmm total crap....

Unless you have a cult like following like Apple..... You should not attempt a captive battery... Just ask Handspring with the Treo 600 the phone that put them out of business then Palm took over and the joke of the century the Samsung UpStage...

Hmm a smartphone with the namesake of a line that was known for crap Battery Life making a model with a captive battery .... As we all know Droids are known for their GREAT battery life anyway.. mmmm makes complete sense.

Bluetooth problem?

Has anyone noticed a problem using their BT headsets? I have used voice dial and when prompted to repeat I say the name again and it says calling. The voice dial then resets and asks me to say a command again. This has happen on several occasions. Anyone else having this problem.
