Hey im wanting to root my razr but this sounds stupid but how do u root it
The biggest reasons for rooting are removing the bloat packaged with the phone and installing custom ROMs. You can still take OTA's when rooted but you will need to restore any apps you removed and unless you use voodoo ota root keeper the ota process will break your root. Rooting is one of the first things I do when I get a phone... its really your decision but to me, its worth it.

My HUGE reason for rooting is free wifi tether...only if you're on unlimited plan though. Other than that like JP said there is really no benefit to rooting. I've flashed custom Rom's that are supposed to make the phone faster/more battery life ect...but honestly I've found that the stock Rom gives best performance and battery life. Rom's for me just give me more settings/themes and stuff to play with that the stock Rom won't have.
If you want a different look for themes then you can never go wrong with a 3rd party launcher like "Apex Launcher" and "Nova Launcher", those two with UCCW can give you a nice looking phone. Check out "mycolorscreen" on youtube. That guy has some sick homescreens using those two apps.
That's just my opinion though so take it however you want lol
