I have this phone, first night I had it home it would not charge. I took it back to the store where I bought it and they gave me a new battery. Two days later the screen went black I could still recieve and make calls if I could see my screen,LOL. A day or 2 after that well the phone will not come on at all. I am very upset and help would be appreciated. I paid $175. for it from a sop in the mall. The man at the shop is not wanting to help me at all.
Thanks in advance.

Well... I would say no.. Not worth battery.. I had the same thing happen to me where my phone wouldn't charge and we bought a new battery for $50.00 and then we find out my phone is shot.. so I would strongly recommend getting a new phone..
New charger is needed - Razors are VERY particular about their type of charge - If it is a bad charger - You will see the battery indicator flashing red - and it will be empty - this is the phone saying pretty much that it cannot use this charger -
I have had ALOT of problems with razors and returned chargers - Try to scoop up an original - or take it to a location and test the charger first -
You can try to remove the battery and then put it back in - then try to charger it but i doubt that will work -
Get a new charger - TEST IT FIRST IN STORE!!!
Your phone is basically shot. Two past RAZRs that I've owned both died that way, and Cingular warrantied them and gave me new ones. When that happens, you're done for - there's no feasible fix that's worth the cost, considering you can get a new one relatively cheaply.
Totally discharging the battery is the way to go. But what you can also do to use your phone in the meantime is this. Plug your charger into the phone withOUT your battery in. It will tell you "Unable to Charge." When it says this, put the battery in. It might tell you "Invalid Battery" a couple more times, but it did eventually say "Charging Battery" for me. After that, simply turn the phone on and it will return to normal. This is when you drain the battery completely. Once I did that, I did not get the invalid battery error again.
Advise. If this is your 3rd RAZR V3, you must encourage Cingular (Now is the new AT&T) to replace your whole unit with another model. A friend of mine exchange his phone 4 times, until Cingular replace it. Motorola had too many problems with RAZR phones and that's why they launch quickly the SLVR L7.
They still producing the RAZR, because users love the style and shape of the phone, but reality is that Motorola had several heavy issues with RAZR (Bluetooth, batt, microphone, etc.)
If you're paying for an insurance on your unit, encourage them to replace it.
Don't buy a RAZR. i work for verizon and the RAZR is the worst phone for battery life. There is, however an extended battery that may provide a temporary fix until you buy your next phone....and don't buy a RAZR
