Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3i Cellular Phone
My friend had gotten a new phone, therefore he didn't need his old razor so he gave it to me. When he had it, it worked great! Unfortunately it did not come with a SIM card so I had to go out and buy one. I put the SIM card into the phone and I could access all of the phones features for a day or two... Eventually the battery died, and I realized he had not given me the charger, so I went out and bought a charger for this specific phone. I plugged it into the phone, and the only thing that happened was the backlight flashed blue, and the screen flashed white every 10-15 seconds. I unplugged the phone from the charger the next day and pressed the power button and the backlight flashed blue at a very fast speed, then slowed down and dimmed, then eventually stopped flashing and turned off. I tried charging it from the computer through the Motorola phone tools program, but my phone never connects because it always turns off before the program can detect the phone. Sometimes If I hold down the power button until the Motorola screen pops up it will say "Charging", then turn off immediately and go through the whole flashing white and blue cycle again...
DO I NEED A NEW BATTERY OR A NEW CHARGER? The phone worked perfectly fine before the battery died so I don't think its the phone.
ANY INFORMATION WOULD BE EXTREMELY HELPFUL! THANKS!
What if the motorola razor charger voltage is a bit too high? Does the phone reject the voltage or charge anyway?

As i think that charger was not compatible to your phone so when you tried charging it the battery is dead bcoz of excess voltage than it normally bears with the compatible charger of ur phone ...
so this excess voltage has made the battery to be short circuited due to this may be the charging ic or the capacitor is gone ...
so i suggest you to take the cell to the near by technician and just have a check...
the only problem with all motorola phones is that it only charges with the charger with the desired voltage ... if the voltage of the charger is low then it will not show any response(i mean it will not charge but it will not cause any thing to battery as it is of less voltage than the desired voltage )
so i think the charger you buyed provides more than the desired voltage so the battery is dead .....
