Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Ringer turns off when I don't want it to!

How can I disable the external volume key on my razr v3?  (It is on the side of the phone.)  I carry it in my pocket, and somehow the external volume key gets pressed, then the adjacent "smart key" gets pressed, which turns off the ringer.  I miss several calls that way. 


I want to keep the external keys active when the phone is flipped open, but I'd like them inactive when it is closed.


Is this possible?  The manual does not address this.


Many thanks in advance.

Partial solution: When phone if flipped open press CLR then * This will lock keys and side buttons, but you can still answer calls. CLR then * again will toggle keys and side buttons back on.

Only solution I can offer is change you smart keys to something other than the ringer

I have a motorola razr v3 that i hear fine out of but others cant hear me


You will have to get your cellphone repaired that is the only solution to fix this problem.IF it is under warranty then please get it replaced.
You can try taking the phone apart if you want and clean and reattached the connections to the speaker in the phone.

Good luck,

When you are on a call, press the up or down buttons on the "top" part of the phone, to the left side of the main screen. If you are on a call, these buttons adjust in call volume. Otherwise, they adjust call ringer volume.
