Exchange unit under manufacturers warranty. While the Razr HD and Razr M use a micro-sim, the Razr V uses a normal sim(really a mini sim). The micro -sim is exactly half the size of the required sim and fits perfectly sideways into the slot. If you push it with another sim card you can make it click into and out of the mechanism. It will come back as far as the spring pushes it, but no further, and because it is only half the size, there is nothing to grip onto, and it is still under gentle pressure from the contacts. Removal of the the back cover and non-removable battery still does not allow access to the rear of the slot so the sim can be pushed out. Ask Motorola for DOA warranty replacement and keep the faulty one as a 4" wifi tablet.
Yes this is fixable, but in most cases not by the owner as it takes special tools to take the phone apart to replace the part. This is best left to a cell phone retailers service personnel, cost about $50.00 on average to repair the flex conductor ribbon..
There was a batch of these phones recalled for this very problem. My daughter got the phone and after three days the top came off the slide - after arguing with the AT&T store and getting no where. I called AT&T and spent an hour on the phone trying to convince them that my daughter hadn't broken it. Finally they helped me get it replaced through the store (within 30 days of purchase) A few weeks later we got a recall letter and had to replace the second phone also. What a pain! All of this happened in Oct/Nov of 2008 so if any of you bought your phones during that time it could be part of the recall. Good Luck.
If you are under warranty, get a replacement. In my experience, this problem will get worse. If you are out of warranty (older than 1 yr), you may be able to argue for a refurbished replacement at no cost - ATT/Cingular has been far more accommodating than Verizon. Or activate a different phone - I had my old LG and used it instead until I am eligible for a my new one, and it WON'T be a RAZR! Good luck.
If the phone is under 1 yr old I suggest finding the nearest Motorola service center as it is under warranty. If its not covered you could replace the speaker yourself, although would require a small amount of soldering or replacing the entire LCD module which could be expensive. Let me know if you decide to give it a try I can help w/ disassembly.
