    Yep... That's for sure about messing with the digitizer... I have a micro USB and it's super duper caraaazy! :D

    Welp... I guess if you did have a charging issue they would ask, I didn't think about that... =P

    Your old car charger is fine. I'm using my HTC Inc car charger in the car and generic micro USB on 1.1 hub at the office. All work fine.

    The Droid X is a Motorola phone and so is the Razr so there is no compatibility issue. The symptoms I mentioned are not specific to any particular charger brand, and I have found both generic and name-brand chargers which exhibit the mentioned symptoms, as well as some which don't. Just remember, if you take your phone in for repair, make sure you don't tell them you were using a non-approved charger or they may wish to blame the damage to theany non-approved charger brand and void your warranty.

    As the saying goes, "your results may vary", and for charging only, virtually any USB charger should work fine. It has only been while charging and using the phones (D1 & D2) that I have experienced the crazy screen issues. Just keep the fact that you use non-approved chargers to yourself if you have to take the phone in for a charging problem.

    USB stands for universal serial buss. A standard developed to insure consistatcy across devices and connections. I use my OG charger and my old EnV2 charger on my Bionic with no issues. I use a multitude of MonoPrice USBs to connect data and charge. I use a RadioShak car charger. All that being said, I have seen enough posts on the Bionic to know that this doesn't work for everyone for some reason. The Razr may be the same YMMV scenario

    I just got a Razr and have been going crazy with these issues, thinking at least any decent USB cable would work. However, I found that if I don't use the Moto charger and Moto USB cable I have trouble getting the phone to charge all the way. Also, I could not make the phone and computer recognize each other to sync USB (so I can download Rhapsody music to my sd card) until I saw a thread here and went out to my car and grabbed the USB cable the Razr came with and, voila, instant sync!

    I decided to not take any chances after spending so much on the phone. I went to the Verizon store to buy a wall charger. :blink:
