"Encryption Unsuccessful" screen on Droid RAZR HD


Have you tried to perform a HARD RESET on your phone?.
to do this you first need to power off your phone.
With your phone POWERED OFF press the VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN keys AT THE SAME TIME. Once you have depressed BOTH VOLUME KEYS press and hold the POWER key.
Once you have depressed ALL 3 KEYS ON THE SIDE OF THE PHONE the "BOOT MENU SCREEN" should appear.
When the "BOOT MENU SCREEN" appears, release ALL keys select the "RECOVERY" option, the phone will re-boot and you will see the "Motorola" logo. Eventually the "Motorola" logo will be replaced by the "ANDROID IN DISTRESS SYMBOL" (the "ANDROID" with an exclamation point in front of him). Press ALL 3 keys on the side of the phone once again, tap and release the VOLUME UP key, you should then see a BLUE MENU SCREEN,
oNCE YOU SEE THIS blue menu screen SCROLL DOWN TO THE "wipe data factory reset" OPTION.
oNCE YOU HAVE SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED THESE STEPS THE hard-reset PROCEEDURE WILL BEGIN. WARNING THE HARD RESET PROCEEDURE WILL ERASE ALL OF THE DATA THAT IS CURRENTLY STORED ON YOUR PHONE SUCH AS PICTURES, MUSIC, YOUR CONTACT LIST and so on. SO YOU SHOULD DO A BACKUP BEFORE YOU START THIS PROCEEDURE. I hope that this information is helpful to you!!!.

You have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system takes messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

I assume this problem was resolved. If not, please contact me and I will walk you through the solution. It always helps to know the provider name. Most cell phones are only as good as the towers they connect to. If your phone is not connecting to the local towers correctly you need to contact your service company for a tower update code.
Please let me know if I can help further.
