Re: Phine shuts off when i close it every few times
I would reccomend getting a new one rather than trying to have it fixed. You seem to have a short in the hinge area causing your phone to go off. Trac phones are easier to replace than get repaired. Unless you have a friendly neighborhood phone Phreak available.

Probably the phone got wet. If it also shuts down while your closing it, just close it real slowly and that should fix that problem. Any other note the phones may have come defective cause i had one and that happened. The phones is probably just trying to restart to reset itself to be able to handle a virus or just water that entered the wrong way. Still you should just get a new phone. :)
I just got mine a few weeks ago and it does the same exact thing (I didn't drop it, there is no water damage, I didn't understand the cause of it). I took it back to the Verizon store and I was told that the random shutting off like that is caused by having the phone outside being exposed to heat. He reset my phone back to factory settings and that did the trick for awhile (its hard for me to go to the pool and not have my phone exposed to the heat). There is no charge for them to reset the phone. Mine has started the random shutting off again back up
i have the same problem, installer just quits back to the summerboard, i've tried turning itouch off restarting it and sometimes it works or just trying a couple times in a row, but now after several tries it won't open. Not that installer is doing much for me these days. Most applications that i try to install, usually games, will start to install but instead of sliding back to the package window, installer quits to the summerboard and i see that i have the application on my file manager but they are no where to be found on my itouch. if anyone has any suggestions of how to fix these problems please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
most flip phones, or flip anythings use magnets and sensors to detect if they're closed or not.
Let's do a little experiment. Take a magnet. Now, run that magnet just above and right of the opened RAZR keypad. If your phone acts like it's been closed, then there's nothing wrong with the sensor. That's a GOOD thing. All that needs replacing is the magnet in the top part of the phone. It's located the bottom right of an open phone below the screen, right beside the camera on the inside. Replacing it is as simple as going to http://www.cnn.cn and ordering a new one. (you'll need a T7 driver to open the top part of the housing)
If it doesn't shut off then the sensor itself is shot. As far as I know, there's no where on the net to get a replacement component for it.
