My V3xx RAZR has lost signal. I bought an external antenna that plugs into the plug on the back of the phone. After having it plugged in over the weekend and after unplugging it from the external antenna, it quit receiving a signal. What have I done?

Sounds like the battery, plug this in your car, or home power adapter, If the problem still exists, I would say someone tried to hack it that did not know what they were doing. You can check you warranty at motorola.com unless you can send it back to the seller. Hopefully you can tell just how new it is when you check the warranty. Hope its under warranty and works out for you.
I've had two RAZR phones die in the same way. The first time I went into Cingular to see if they could fix it and they told me it was a goner. It was replaced under warranty. I had one die that way a week ago as well, and got that replaced. The first time, I lost every number and address I had in it. This time I had it all saved to the SIM card so I could upload it to the new one. Sad fact is, that phone is most likely done for and the numbers are lost.
Under the settings for usb connection type change the setting to memory card connection. This is subject to having a memory card (Micro sd) installed. Otherwise you may have to install motorola phone software into your computer and use this to update files on your phone. Regards, David M-G
I have the same problem. Contacted 3rd party tech, take sharp pick or equal and there is supposedly a button in the very center of the antenna port of the phone. gently push the pick in the center of the jack and it will trip the switch. I tried it on my second damaged phone and it worked, so far.
I had the same problem with my phone- i got a cheap generic battery to replace the old one (which wasn't holding a charge for a full day, at that) and then i lost all signal, basically. I tried what scm_pa said he did - charged my old battery up, with the phone off, till the charge was complete- turned the phone on, and voila, reception!
