    I have the same problem with my phone. The external display used to work, and to be honest I can't tell you when the last time was that I noticed it worked, but I think it was around the beginning of this past week that I noticed it was not on any longer and when someone calls now I can't just look at the phone with the external display showing, I have to open it up and then answer it if I want to talk to the caller. What can I do for this? I have no insurance on the phone and I know it's way past any type of warranty period. Thanks

    My phone just started doing this same thing about a week and a half ago. External is blue, internal is white. Open and close a few times to get the internal to work. External was hit and miss, but not so much of a concern to me. Now does not want to work at all, even does weird "pixel" things on occasion, i.e: display is just a screen of small squares in varying colors. My phone has never been wet, but the indicator tab inside the battery compartment is red, so they won't warranty it- even though it's less than a year old. I acquired my phone on a "buy one, get one free" deal. The thought has crossed my mind that it was meant to be "disposable" from the manufacturer to suck consumers in ( I LOVE my RAZR) so we would 'need' to buy a new one. Or possibly there was a defective lot and they ran the BOGO sale to get rid of them (and still possibly benefiting from the future sale forced by the defect). I went with the RAZR because of the thin size, so I carry it in my pocket without a huge bulge. I believe the indicator turned red from sweat and body heat. My brother went in on the BOGO with me- his phone is fine and he carried his in his pocket, it has never been wet and his indicator is red. REGARDLESS... I cannot call anyone unless they are stored as a speed dial and I know what that # is. I was told by my wireless provider that I could purchase a "ceritfied" used phone for $60 or $70. I find it VERY odd that two others here started having the same problems at the same time!

    OH YA... and my battery quite holding a charge. I bought a new one, thinmking this is somewhat normal after a period of time, and the new one will only take aboiut a quarter charge. I've tried all the little things you hear (let it die completely, make sure it's off while charging, etc. Before the new battery, it seemed to charge better with the phone on.

White Screen on Razr, What is a "Strip Problem"

Before you open it and look inside it check to see if the magnetic switch is stuck. Check it with a kitchen magnet to the upper righthand corner of the keypad. There is a magnet in the lower righthand corner to activate it. Do some of the function work when it is closed? If they do then it is not the cable but the switch. Does the outside screen look the same as if it is closed then it is this switch? Could be a bad one, something stuck in there, or it could be stuck.
