Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3
Hi, ok so I've had a common problem with my V3 after TWO DAYS of ownership. It went dead and now I can't turn it on no matter what I do, the keypad just flashes and that's it. I tried taking the battery out and putting it back in again, doesn't work. T-Mobile is sending me a new one. Won't take a charge, nothing. Now I have to get a replacement phone after TWO DAYS. This is rediculous. How many replacement phones does it usually take to get one that actually works? What is the problem here, are they just made really badly or what is it? Should I consider just getting a new phone altogether, and if so, what are your recommendations? What phones are the most reliable? Is there a way for me to fix this problem myself? I really do like motorola phones, but will NOT put up with this crap. I really had no idea there were this many problems with the razrs. Thanks a lot for your help.
I've got a Sony Ericsson W580i. I have sworn by Sony since 2002. I've had 3 sony phones since then and not one of them have ever given me problems. All are still in working condition, I've only switched every couple years due to upgrades in technology.
However, as far as the Motorola Razr's go, everyone I know has had problems with them, they all seem to break down completely within about a year - sometimes less. I've been spending a long time researching these problems online in an attempt to fix my friends phone for him (or at least get the data off) and it seems as though a majority of the people who own one of these phones all have similar issues.
My suggestion - get a new phone, these ones are very poorly made. Do not purchase a razr if you haven't done so already!

I WAS an owner of a V3 for about a year I believe you have just got a dead battery so when you get your new phone you should be ok, I must be honest I only bought the V3 for its looks and multimedia capability I was happy with it until I started using the MP3 player and the voice recognition software I find this phone will crash 2 out of 5 times at random time whether your in a call listening to music or dialing a number.....In short nice looks great design crap software if you have the cash time etc I would not bother with the V3 I switched from a V3 to a SPV_C600 windows mobile based phone its great and they cost around £70 ($140) hope this helps you make your mind up.
