    Hi - thanks for your ideas... yes I used different chargers - car and home chargers... and I tried a blackberry charger as well (problem here ?) and charging from the powerbook - so can the EMU in the phone be damaged ?

    yes I did master reset and so on.

    Opened up my Razr this morning; dead. Plug it into the wall, it says the battery is charging, but I can't do ANYTHING else with it; call, sms, even turn it on. just keeps saying the battery is charging.

    will the phone start working again when the battery is fully charged?

    I have the exact same problem. I just purchased my Motorola RAZR v3c. And

    when it is charging (through the charger included in the box, or through the specific usb charger made for the Razr), the phone won't ring or vibrate--which means I miss calls. I don't know how to fix this; any suggestions appreciated.

    Same problem. Not sure what happened to cause this. I just found out after a couple days of my phone alarm not waking me up...I did find a temp solution by simultaneously playing a ring tone while I plug it in, but the phone adapted to that after a few days...

    I had a solution until my phone caught on to what I was doing...
    All I had to do was simultaneously play a ring tone or just make it do any kind of noise as I plugged it in to charge. That solution only worked for a few days.

    I've noticed that when it's plugged in charging and I make a call, it automatically has speakerphone on. When I turn speakerphone off, I can hear the other end, turn it back on, silence...ugh

Have you used other chargers? Your EMU could be messed up or a bad charger. Try another to see what will happened or look at the pins in the EMU for damage. Unfortunately they still hadn't decided to cover the EMU like they did the Krazr. Are there any headphone setting that were changed? It seems to be using the charger as an external speaker. Have you power cycled or master reset?

    Did you try to adjust the volume while it is attached to the charger? Sometimes if I have my phone set for silent it goes to loud when plugged in so your could be doing the opposite.

Just vibrates wont ring

Your mobile may be in the profile "silent". So all you need to do is change to profile "normal" . Then your mobile will ring.
