Third razr. Now the wifi is stuck. Done master reset. This phone has so many issues including the battery issues. I have a rezound coming in the mail as a replacement. Everybody pray this is a great phone!

I've heard great things about the Rezound, think it's the sleeper phone of this year. Hopefully it works out for you.

The rezound as far as usability goes is the best phone. Not debatable.

I'm probably heading for the Rezound too if I can get Verizon to send me one. SO far, they are telling me I need the Charge for a "like" replacement??

Makes a person wonder if a battery pull would work since the master reset is software dependent? One reason why I'm shying away from the Razr and yet, I love Moto especially for build and more importantly for actual call reception in fringe areas. I might end up keeping my X for another year!

Actually the reset key combo is HARDWARE dependant.

Cereal Killer is 100% correct (BTW, that's also my nickname by my wife because I could eat an entire box of Corn Pops in one sitting...LOL!).

The reset combo is completely separate from ANY software function of the phone, so it can effect a full shut-down even while the phone is completely frozen. This is identical to the 10-second press of your desktop computer's power button which does the same thing. It signals a separate circuitry on the motherboard that is totally hardware dependent, and triggers a count-down for 10 seconds (or thereabout), then electronically disconnects the power to the motherboard, effectively creating a "battery pull". The countdown may not be a true clock countdown, but could be a capacitor that is connected to a resistor by way of the key-presses, and slowly drains the capacitor until it's completely drained, triggering the shutdown. I can't find research to describe the actual process, but rest assured if the motherboard is functioning normally, the two-button press WILL do a "battery pull".

I came from the Bionic to the Rezound. You will like it. Very solid phone, no reception problems what so ever.

Take the time to get to know the phone though, Sense is WAY different than Blur.

Yea, the Rezound is a great phone. The only two real drawbacks are the weight and battery life. Hardware wise, everything else is either equal to or better than the Razar, especially the display and the camera. After researching all three flagship phones, I ended up with the Rezound. The Razar just felt uncomfortable in my hand and the screen and camera absolutely did not compare.

Have you played with any of these new phones? They all make my once loved DX look like a dated lag king!
