Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Blank display, crazy amounts of dropped calls

Hey, I'm hoping to get more help here than at the Motorola site, because the customer support there is pretty shoddy in my opinion. Well, I've had this particular phone for around 6-8 months, and I haven't abused, mistreated, or otherwise damaged my phone at all. A couple months ago my phone started dropping calls repeatedly and often, and it's gotten progressively worse, but since it would cost me $50 and the time and effort to re-take pictures and re-acquire phone numbers I haven't sent it in for a replacement. Now today I woke up and the display worked fine, I put it in my pocket and a few hours later I took it out and, poof, no display whatsoever. Not the front, smaller screen or the one on the inside of the flip. The phone still makes calls and sounds, and apparently can be operated, but no screen. My last phone also got a broken screen, and after running rings to try to get a repair, I finally caved and got a replacement. I don't want to do this again, because that would mean spending almost 6x what this phone is now worth overall on keeping my phone working. This is supposed to be a good quality phone, and I've had the same problem on the last two I've had. I don't know what could have caused the random shutting off of my screen, last time it was a combination of wear and static electricity, but this one was sitting in my pocket perfectly safe from the world and died anyways. I don't know what to do. Any help would be immensely appreciated, because I'm not getting much from the manufacturers other than "Send it in and get a new one for 50 dollars!" and I can't send it in for repairs because I'd need a proof of purchase, and the replacement that they sent me didn't come with a receipt to my knowledge. I'm stuck here. Please help.

Cell's Display is Blank

It's possible that the flex cable that connects the display to the main board has become loose or disconnected. This could easily have happened if the phone was dropped.

The worst possible scenario would be a damaged LCD display due to being dropped.

Unless you feel comfortable with taking the phone apart, you will need to take it to be serviced.

You may also wish to find out whether its cheaper to replace the phone rather than paying to have it fixed.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Pictures on camera phone razr

Hi Elsmo,

In order to download your pictures you need to purchase a program called 'Motorola Phone Tools'.

The link to the site is below:

Sorry they do not have a descriptive site that is a little more useful. But if you go to the drop down box and choose your model phone it should tell you a little bit more about the program. It will let you download/upload unlimited ringtones as well.

Also, if you have a data/email plan on your phone you can also email the photos to yourself. Of course if the plan is not unlimited this could get pricey (so it is probably better to just pay the one time charge for the software).

Hope everything works out for you without too much trouble.
