Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Razr battery trouble

Both my son and I have a RAZR. The length of battery usage is terrible. I charge it every night and by the end of the day it is out of battery. I have only had the phone for a few months, so I took it back to the store and they gave me a new battery. I have the same situation with the new battery. My son has the same issues. What is the deal?

Re: Razr battery trouble

Don't buy a RAZR. i work for verizon and the RAZR is the worst phone for battery life. There is, however an extended battery that may provide a temporary fix until you buy your next phone....and don't buy a RAZR

I put my Droid Razr on charger but battery symbol comes on with ? mark. Won't charge or turn on.

1. Turn off your phone when it's not in use. If you're not using your Verizon Wireless Razr, then shut it off. Your battery will last much longer if you regularly do this.
2. Charge your phone less. If you charge your Razr nightly, then your cell phone battery won't last long. Try to charge your phone only a few times a week to extend the battery life.
3. Keep your Bluetooth turned off when you're not using it. Applications, like Bluetooth, are notorious for sucking the power from a cell phone battery.
4. Protect your Razr from extreme temperatures. Your cell phone battery lasts longer if kept at room temperature.
5. Discharge the Razr fully. Before you charge your phone, let it completely die. You can extend the life of the battery by regularly discharging and then fully charging it.
6. Leave the battery in the phone. Keep the Razr battery dry and free of dirt to prolong its life.

Battery not holding charge

That sounds like typical battery life for that phone.  When I owned one that's what I got on the weekends when my call volume was lower.

Go to your provider and have them install a current software version for your phone.

Razor battrey

Did the phone show it was charging on the display? Was the charger firmly connected to the phone? The batteries will go bad after a period of time of recharge cycles. I have bought replacement batteries for my RAZR on eBay. Remove the battery and do a search on eBay for a NEW battery from a dealer using the battery P/N on the battery. I found a higher capacity battery for mine that lasts even longer on a charge than the original one that came with my RAZR. You can do a search on eBay for "RAZR battery". Look at the mAH rating on your battey, Try finding a replacement with the same or higher rating than your original. The higher the mAH rating, the longer it will last between recharge cycles.

Good luck!

Won't charge

You have taken the appropriate steps. Now you have determined that the problem is not battery, it is the phone.
Most likely causes are:
  • Bad connection between battery and phone due to damage
  • water damage to the phone or corrosion
  • leads from the battery to the phone are broken.
Either way the phone will require warranty work or replacement.

Motorola Razr V3

this problem has probably occured due to the phone being knocked. i used to have a motorola l7 slvr and it did exactly the same, i found that if you hit the back of the phone fairly hard the screen would come back on. im not sure if it is the same for the razr but hey its worth a try. ti be honest i think motorola are terrible mobile phone manufacturers but great 2way radio manufacturers

Motorola razr battery problem

The only solution is to get a new battery. When you do, charge it completely when you first get it, then discharge it until it dies. This will maximize the life of the battery.

My RAZR is dead and will not charge, its not the charger and I don't have a spare battery to try.Is there a common fault here? Thanks for any suggestions.

Hello Tone316,

Sorry to hear of your cell phone drama. The problem that exists with your phone is most likely not the battery.

A common problem is the charging port on the phone (the place on your phone where you plug the charger). Through normal usage it occassionally wiggles loose from the main board.

If the phone is under warranty 1 year or less you can contact your cell phone provider and place a warranty exchange. They will send you a refurbished handset (no battery, no sim if applicable) with a return mailer. You will have 5-7 days to send in your old phone to avoid being charged for the replacement. There is no charge for the replacement phone.

If your phone is not sim card based then you may want to go to your local retail store so that you can get assistance with backing up your data as you will not receive your old phone back once you send it in for service.

The only way to be sure if the problem is actually with the phone is to see if you can test out another wall charger. You can do this at your local retail store without having to purchase it or use a friend or family members charger if you know of any who has a Razr. If the phone charges then the problem exists with the charger, if it doesn't the problem exists with the phone.

On the outside chance the problem exists with the charger you have to place the warranty claim with Motorola and not with the cell phone provider as accessory and out of warranty replacements are handled directly by the manufacturer.

Tone316- I hope everything works out for you without much trouble.
