Intermittant Keypad lock up & intermittant antenna reception
My Razr has the keppad unresponsiveness and loss of signal, both of which come and go. Sometimes I can "wake up the phone keypad.". My phone went swimming with me once when I had to save my 4 yr old in the pool and has been dropped more than a few times. Also Can you recommend a battle hardened phone with no camera to buy in the future?
I use At$T but I'm open to whoever and prefer a pay as u g plan.

Re: Intermittant Keypad lock up & intermittant antenna...

Check,connectors keypad to main board,could be corrosion or check" on and off" button could be dirty,if not try to swap another flip,if not replace Gcap3 Ic near the battery contact.good luck to you Van
I install at least 2-3 antennas a week. While Analog stations were no big deal when it came to reception, Digital signals are very directional, and can be very fickle about reception sometimes. Digital is "all or nothing," meaning that if you get enough signal to get a picture, then great, but if you don't, it won't allow you to even try to make the picture.
My suggestion is to first try a 15-25 dB amplifier (with an FM trap) on the antenna. Use it first in-line, immediately following the antenna, before it is fed to any TV's. If that doesn't help, try re-aiming the antenna directly toward the city from which your signals are being broadcast. You'd be suprised how little you have to turn it to make a big difference.
Give these two things a shot. Hope this helps you...
I suggest that you swap a one of the better boxes with the one that is not so good. If you get the same condition there is nothing wrong with the converters. You probably have a signal loss on the one that is not like the other two, could be a poor connection, wrong type of coax, defective splitter or many other things. Good luck!
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 was recently told that if you use an external antenna on the razr, you can 'burn out' the internal antenna resulting in no service or intermittant service, even when in an area that normally provides strong signal, thus it may be that your internal antenna is the problem.
