My girlfriend recently gave me a V3 RAZR to use, and every time I open the phone, it presses the right button, thus going into the Ring Styles menu, and changing it to loud, to soft, to vibe & ring, etc. It is constant, and when I try to send a text, it moves the cursor to the right, and selects different letters than I need. Does anyone know of this problem and how to fix it?

Re: V3 RAZR constantly pressing right?
As you describe it, your problem is the keypad. Maybe dirty or wet inside though that part is a totally replaceable pad with a connector only so you must buy a replacement and replace the broken one.
About how to do that: being the razr a common phone is pretty sure you'll find guides, photos and maybe videos around the web, googling, guiding you on how to do it. Maybe the shop where you buy the replacement can have a forum or guides. The other option is to pay a technician to do it.

REDUCING KEYPAD VOLUME
Press the phone's menu key, located between the two soft keys on the top of its keypad.
Scroll to "Settings" and press the center key to select it.
Scroll to "Ring Styles," press the center key, scroll to the specific ring profile that you are using and press the center key to select it.
Scroll to "Key Volume," select it by pressing the center button, turn the volume all the way down and press the center button to lock your changes.
Press the soft key labeled "Exit" to exit the menu system.
Repeat this process for every ring profile in which you want the keypad not to make sound when you use it.
As per my understanding you have set your ring style profile to loud and highest volume 7 but still ur phone phone rings on silent when someone calls..
Please change the Profile setting once again as mentioned below:
How to change call alerts and styles?
1.From the general menu, select "Settings" > "Ring Styles" >
"Style Detail" 2.If you select one of the styles, ie. "Loud" you can then highlight by
scrolling down on the wheel & select "loud detail" & press on the
"change" button (top right corner key). 3.Here you will be prompted to change any feature available to the
"loud" style: volume, ringtone, alerts, voice mail, text messaging

feature you need to change with the directional wheel and press the
"change" button for each.

the problem has a solution.There are two way to deactivate the silent mode on the phone:
Through the Menu, or Through short cut.
Go to through the menu, click on the menu button, you will see the settings of the phone. Click the setting button and scroll to the second option on the menu which is ring styles, click to open option one which is the style.
When you click the style option, you will see all the style options available in there. Then you can now select the one you want.
If you want to go through the short cut option, just hold down the harsh button ( # ) it will automatically deactivate the silent option.
1. press the middle button "-" at the top of the v3 keypad.
2 go to settings, and press on the button with a screwdriver and spanner
3. go to ring styles, press on the line below style.
4.Go to text msgs and press change to alter
I have this problem I can't access the loud setting but I can the soft I'm not yet sure why but you may need to update the software on your phone to fix this bug. Sometimes I take off the back and take out my battery and put it back in and then sometimes i can access also when you select your ring tone to change just push left or right instead of using the menu that drops down that also sometimes works for me hope one of the helps.
