small amount of water spilled on front cover of razr

hi everyone,

i left my razr on my nightstand and somehow some water was spilled onto it. i immediately turned off the phone, took out the battery and let it dry in the sun. when i turned it back on after a few hours, i found that none of the buttons work except the power on/off. the phone is through cingular and is way out of warranty. is there any workaround to this problem? if not, anyone know where i can buy an inexpensive phone until i figure something out? because i really do not want to renew my 2 year contract with cingular right now...

MPT v4.0 won't recognize my V3

I am only wanting to add ringtones and pictures to my V3. I just bought it yesterday. Everything seems to work fine with the phone, but the software that came with it won't seem to recognize it. I've done the updates, restarted the computer a few times, everything, lol.

Is there any other software availible that will allow me to add MP3 ringtones and transfer photos back and forth through my computer?

RAZR V3 - Pairing with Laptop

Any of you know if this is possible without any other software?

Can I pair my RAZR with my laptop (which has bluetooth)?

Ideally, I would like to backup data including names, phone numbers, and text messages.

Would I need a SW package to do this?

Any feedback, please let me know. When I tried pairing them they weren't finding each other.

External display does not show caller id

I was wondering if anyone else have had similar issue and how it could be fixed.

My T-mobile razr's external display stopped showing the wallpaper suddenly on one day.
Since then, it displays the white background with t-mobile icon on it.
It does not display the time, network availability etc.
When I get a call, it does not show caller ID.
When I flip open the phone, it won't connect.
I'll have to press a button to answer the call.
If I have some menu or something open and I close the flip, it won't go away. Next time I open the flap, the last screen would be staring at me as is.

The situation is very annoying. I tried Master Clear and Master reset both. Dis not work. Crying or Very sad

Any suggestion appreciated.

Screen doesn't display

I've had my razr for 2 years now and it just crapped out. The joint where the phone flips open seems to have some sensor when the phone is open. With the phone flipped open it wouldn't turn on. The phone thought the lid was closed. So I removed the plastic insert to find that the plastic insert was broken.

I left out this insert and turned on the phone. It worked. The only thing that didn't work was the display. I just need to get all the info off the phone (Pix and Contacts). I have motorola tools, but the problem with that is my phone always disconnects from my computer while the phone sets up. Anyone have any suggestions?

It was touched by water last night. Actually set down on a table which had some condensation from a frozen drink. It was opened and dried immediately.
I pulled the battery and the sim and laid it in a sunny window with a fan on it.
So now, I nned to know if its hooped, or saveable.
I get the motorolla splash screen but then the invalid battery message pops up and fades to black. Can anyone smart help me out with some info?

Hi, I've got a Razr on T-Mobile. This phone has software from a previous Pay As You Go plan, but I've got a My-Faves monthly plan. Right now my software is set for the Pay-As-You-Go but can still function on My Faves. Is there any software I can download to make my phone a MyFaves phone? Or is the software embedded into the phone?

My full Razr V3 review

This is a GREAT phone. This baby is HOT. Worth the money, if you have it to spend.


1. Design, Design, Design! It's one of a kind and man is it SLEEK. Coolest phone ever made.

2. Sound quality! It's loud crystal clear, whether you are holding the phone to your ear or on the speakerphone.

3. Ok, maybe it's not a PDA or anything, but it has features! Speakerphone, Bluetooh, nice camera (it may be VGA, but it's still good for a phone), music, MPEG4 videos, what more do you want?


1. Feels delicate. Honestly, I feel like I'm holding a cracker, and that I may break it in half if I'm not careful. Hopefully it is more durable than it seems. Also, the side buttons are kinda tough to push in if you don't mash just the...

loss of color/contrast

A few days ago all of the screens seem to have less color or to be washed out. Changing brightness in initial setup doesn't do anything. Is there a way to change the contrast? Also at same time it does not hold a charge for more than 12 hrs.
