So like how an exorcism gets the craziest right before the demon is exorcized, my awful phone is giving it all before I upgrade in a few weeks. I open my keyboard, and the background defaults, then it flashes between the background picture and the app, then locks the phone. My phone was frozen on the texting app, so I restart it, something I do often to try and fix my issues with the phone. Well, it's been restarting for a while, and i've even restarted the restart, but nothing works and I don't know how to fix this. Any tips? The battery should've been full enough, it was above 50% although it has dropped from 40% to 1% (like I said, a lot of problems). I have a Droid RAZR M.

I had a situation with my RAZR M once where it just started overheating for no reason and became unresponsive. I was finally able to get it shut down and let it cool for a while. But it would not turn on again. I was able to boot into the Recovery Menu and do a Factory Reset (FDR) and it ran great for almost another year. Never did figure out why. If you can get it to turn off and charge for a while, booting into Recovery and doing a FDR may be the only option?

Sounds good, but I don't know if I want to do a FDR when i'll only have it for a few more weeks. I don't want to lose everything, and I don't want to set up two phones in a month.

Understood. I'm not sure what else you can do right now. Hope you can find a way to get it running again to get you through the next few weeks.

I got a new phone (I was planning on it anyways) and did the factory reset, but still no luck, it's still stuck...

Sorry to hear that, I had hoped it would get the old phone running again. I know how much of a bummer it is to lose personal files, pics etc. Just curious, what new phone did you get? At least that is something positive.

Yeah it is a plus, hopefully I won't have to frequent the forums any more. I got the droid turbo! Yeah I mainly just want to access my SD card in my phone (this phone doesn't have a slot) lots of the stuff were backed up on the cloud

Excellent choice! Very nice phone. Hope you enjoy it and can recover what you need from the RAZR M's SD card.

Thanks! I'm loving it so far it's very fast and has a great battery. I'll post here if I can get it to work for others

Its strange that your RAZR M did this and then other people reported similar issues in the past week on the Moto forum. Very strange. Both of my daughters have a RAZR M & so far so good with theirs.

Oh really, other people had these issues too? My phone has always had issues so I wouldn't think many other people would have the issue, strange.
