Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3
When I close the flip, the backlight continues to stay on. I have tried changing the display timeout, etc. How do I fix this?
Try removing the battery for a few seconds then restart the phone. Other than that, it could be a defective switch on the phone that detects when it's closed. If it answers / hangsup when the opened or closed... the switch is good.

I had this same problem after dropping my phone once. Turns out there's a very tiny magnet inside the phone that trips a proximity sensor when the phone closes, in turn starting the backlight "turn off" timer. Since I do this sort of thing for a living, I cracked the phone open and glued the magnet back in place where the supporting plastic had broken allowing the magnet to move slightly.
WARNING! Do not attempt this fix unless you're very good at this sort of thing. That stinkin' magnet is super tiny and I lost mine for about an hour since I didn't see it fall out while I was taking the phone apart. Good luck!

I have a GSM V3 Razr I purchased unlocked. The "Display Timeout" settings are, "Off" "1 Min" and "2 min" but it doesn't matter what it is set to as the "Backlight" setting choices are "5 sec" "10 sec" and "20 sec" and these are the settings that seem to control my display. 20 sec. is the longest my display stays on. How can I change it to stay on longer?

I had the same issue with my razr. what worked for my phone was going to the backlight timer settings, and setting it on the '1 minute' option. it's now nice and dark. for some reason, the 'off' setting doesn't do this.
