    Ok so I've noticed today after putting juice defender on my razr the back of the phone getting pretty warm...kind of odd
    or normal? Battery was at 30%..... I just got a silicone case for it today...do ya think its just not letting the heat
    dissipate? When this happens should I shut the phone down or just leave it be?

    Android phones tend to heat up sometimes, espcially with the power running through that monster.
    If you were playing a game/streaming video/any other antenna or processor heavy action, its normal. If it was just sitting, screen off, no foreground apps, then you might have a problem.
    If the phone gets into the excessively hot (110+), I would shut it down, but moderate heat isn't a problem.
    On a more personal note, I don't like juice defener (or task killer) type apps, they interfere heavily with the way android natively runs, and because android was made to be a MOBILE operating system, it was built from the ground up with multitasking and battery life in mind.

    The only time I've noticed mine get warm in the 5 days I've had it is when I was doing some heavy web surfing. I would think the heat would dissipate fairly well with such a thin body, but then again...

    Is Juice Defender some sort of "task killer"?

    I don't see the point of using juice on Razr.. But whatever works for you mine was getting hot.. Turned off pocket dection mode and it stopped.

    Yeah, the idea of Juice Defender is to have it turn things on and off when needed. I got it for my OG Droid, but I never saw any battery savings. For example, it would turn my WiFi every so often to see if there was a connection, even in places where there was no WiFi. There's lots of customizing you can do to the settings, but even though it said I was now getting 2X my battery life, it lasted the same as without JD. YMMV as others will swear by it.

    I use JD to toggle wifi on/off for one minute every time I unlock the phone. This way when I am home smart actions picks up I'm home/work and starts. if not it toggles off wifi for me.
