My razor v3 will show that i have 3 or more bars when closed. flip it open and i lose all signal. wait a few seconds, signal comes back, make a call and it will either never ring, or it will connect and drop the call after only seconds. never been dropped, never touched water. i tried turning it off for a while but that hasn't done anything. my speed dials were deleted somehow. sometimes it will turn off, and then turn right back on when i flip the phone open. any ideas? oh and now i can't recieve texts. can send sometimes, but not always. never had any problems before. not one.

With the phone closed, hold down the multi-function button on the lower-right side of the phone for a few seconds; that will lock all of the buttons on your phone until you either a) open the phone, or b) hold down the same button for another few seconds to unlock the keys.
To the best of my knowledge, there's no way to set the button to ALWAYS be disabled when closed; you have to lock it every time you close the phone.
NOTE: Locking your keys can create another problem, at least on my phone, where I've disabled the option to anser a call by flipping it open (I prefer the option to view the caller and ignore it if it's not a priority). When I receive a call with the phone locked, I have to wait a few seconds after flipping the phone open before pressing the "answer" key; if I answer too soon after flipping it open, the phone tends to lock up for about 30 seconds, which obviously kills the call.
This is the Early signs of Failure! Just had to Upgrade my RAZR for the same Problem. Your Options are (1) Have it Repaired-Costs a LOT! (2) Upgrade to a New or Refurbed Razr. There are no other Solutions
Hate to say it, but your phone is on the way to its death. I've had two RAZRs die on me, and both showed similar symptoms before they went down. It's a combination of the ribbon wire that connects the screen to the keypad half of the phone (causing the power problems) and the open/close sensor on the phone not realizing you've shut the phone (which is why it's keeping the T up on the screen). If you have warranty coverage on it, move all your contacts to your SIM card, send any pics you want to keep to your email address with mms messages, and then go show them the problems. They should give you a new phone.
Common failure of RAZR phones. It's not necessarily water damage. I have had two of them die on me that way - there's a very thin ribbon cable that connects the screen to the keypad and brain. Over time, flipping the phone open and closed damages that, and when it breaks, you lose your display. Unless you can micro-solder, you need a new phone.
the hinge is the middle of the phone where the top and bottom of the phone meet think of it this way if u close ur razor the top of the phone is the hinge its the things where it has two shiney cirlces on each sides hope that advice helps thanx.
try to open the top flip there are four screw covers around your display then take them out whit a little pin then take the screws out whit the t5 screw driver after that hold the caller id down whit your left hand and pull up the top flip whit ur rigth hand or u can use a thiny plastic around the top flip to take it out after u take it out u will see two flex cables on the top one is the end of the camera and the other is the end of the flex cable. pull the flex cable up and desconect it clean the flex cable connector whit alcohol or just blow it then put it back a little hard till u heard the click then try to clean the camera connector there is a little brown plastic on the top of the camera connector pull it up and open it like a door after u clean it put it back and close it then put the side keys back if they were moved then the top flip, screws, and screw covers.
if the problem still u have to buy the lcd display but the lcd is too expensive it would be better to buy another v3
