Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3
I've had a Motorola RAZR V3 for three days, and it has yet to stay on for more than a few hours. Sometimes it turns off in minutes. I figured the battery was dead, but upon charging it more there was no difference, if anything, it's worse. Does anyone know if this is a common thing? Also, what can I do to fix afformentioned problem?
Your battery may need to be replaced.

I'm not too sure what it is. My friend's having the same problem. her cell phone turns off and then back on within seconds then 30 seconds later it turns back off and on again. It's been doing it for the past 20 minutes now. We've taken out the charger, made sure the contacts were touching, tapped it with our palm, everything and it's still doing it. We even pushed the restart button behind the battery and still nothinggg. & we just got the phone 2 months ago & it was fine up until now. We threw away the reciept and box and didnt get insurance on it. I guess I should have... Does anyone know how to help?? if so please txt Angelica at 570-423-7441. THANK YOU!!

I went through several Motos with the same problem. I finally isolated the issue: An aftermarket charger! I quit using it and never had the problem again. If you're not using OEM EVERYTHING, Motos are very sensitive to it!

There could be several reasons for this happening. 1. Housing issues. 2. The battery connector may not have been seated properly during manufacturing or could be faulty. 3. The battery itself could be damaged. 4. If you're using a non-OEM Motorola battery (in other words, if your'e using a replacement no-name one) then chances are it's just cheap design. A lot of the replacement batteries have lower mA/H which means they will not last as long as the Motorola one will usually. Those are just a few of the problems that it could be. Here's solutions for those 3: 1. Go buy a T7 driver and see if you can reseat the housing of the phone itself. These are easily found on eBay. Pick up a tool that preferably has T7 and below because if I', not mistaken, the RAZR uses both T7 screws and T5. This could be useful in the future should you decide to change your housing. 2. See option 1. Or if it's faulty, http://www.cnn.cn has new battery connectors you could replace it with. You'll still need the tool to open up the RAZR 3. Borrow someone's battery. RAZR's are everywhere. See if it causes the same problems with someone else's battery. If you can keep power for more than the time it typically takes for it to shut itself down, then you know it's the battery, and you can find tons of them on eBay for cheaper than store prices. 4. Always go with an OEM Motorola one though, no-names tend to be less powerful and probably won't even LAST. If they have higher mA/H then realize that non-brand name batteries are obviously cheaper and will are not made to be durable or long-lasting.

I'm having the exact same problem. I have the v3t (T-Mobile) The phone just turns off. I'm not even touching it. At work it'll just be sitting on my desk and I'll check my phone to see if I missed any calls or text messages and surprise! The phone isn't even on. Recently while on the phone talking it just suddenly powered off. When the phone restarted the battery meter was red, as in the battery is dead. But that's impossible because I had just unplugged my phone from the charger before I left the house. It's interesting what the post on 04/27/07 says about a casing problem. The back cover of my v3t does not fit properly.

I took the battery out, waited 15 seconds, popped it back in and tapped the phone on my palm a few times. Held the red button and it came back on.

I had the same problem with several Nextel motorolas...all had to have the casings replaced. They think it was that the battery was not sitting right in the casing.
