You can try to clean the charger port (but first make sure its not bent, or broken - the pins are really tiny and hard to see, so make sure)
But try cleaning the charge port on the phone and the charger with denatured (rubbing) alcohol, and a toothbrush -

Just make sure not to plug it in when you do this!

and clean both the charger and phone, make sure neither are bent
lastly, try a new charger!

Most likely the charger that you bought is not original motorola charger. I would go and buy original motorola brand.

Whenever i plug my charher into my motorola razor it says unauhorized charger.


The "unauthorized charger" message is hence telling you that the power
output of your charger is significantly lower than a Motorola charger
would provide. It may or may not still charge the phone, you'll have
to try it to see. If it does charge the phone it will take longer to
do so than a higher power charger would.

Hope this helps. =)

Unauthorized charger everytime i plug it in.


There may be a problem with your charger output. Do you have another charger you could try?

A temporary workaround is to reboot the phone with the charger still attached. It should now say "Authorized" and start charging.

Motorola Razr phone charger gets message, ''unauthorized charger.


The problem was in the point of connection between the charger cord jack and the cell phone charger receptacle.  By moving the jack within the connection I was able to resume charging.  The connection may have become faulty as a result of heavy usage.

'Unable to Charge'?


COULD BE THE PHONE BUT MOST LIKELY ITS THE CHARGER, IF ITS AFTERMARKET GET RID OF IT AND BUY OEM, TRY AND TEST IT OUT WOULD A FREINDS MOTOROLA CHARGER SINCE THEY'RE MOSTLY THE SAME CHARGERS AND SEE IF YOU STILL GET THE MESSAGE.

Unable to charge :(


Does it say something like "charger not recognized". I remember having this problem with my razor, and it drove me crazy for several days, then it went away and has never returned. I may have also blasted all the txt messages away to help fix it to. Killing all the txt messages seems to help this phone if its acting up. Definitely speeds up the menu operation. Apparently 250 txt messages is its capacity, even though it will store alot more.
