    My razr freezes up everytime i go to text...but it lets me text little words like "hey" or "no" but no long messages. I am HUGE on text messaging, I do get on the phone, just not as much as I text. Every time it does freeze up, I end up having to take the battery out. But i don't know what I should do because I know that it can't be good to keep taking the battery out, any suggestions?????

First try removing the battery for a minute or two and re-starting.
Sometimes it's because the memory is full. Try deleting old texts and transfer photos, mp3's etc to your memory card(must buy it-not included). Last resort is to delete all user info via the master file, be sure to save your contacts and important data.

Same problem -.- its been suggested to put it in your freezer for about an hour. if that doesnt work that try to return it. it may be because you had the phone for a long period of time.

Its common with motos razors to get freeze ups. I even heard about it happening when sending sms or working on the calendar. If you think it might be the humidity, you could try putting it in an airing cupboard for a few days, with bat disconnected. If nothing works, try getting it fixed on warranty if valid, just don't mention the humidity part ;] good luck
