Thanks! I could not even figure out which part was the battery cover before seeing your post! In my Google address bar, I typed 'removing battery' and it suggested 'from motorola razor'-- obviously I'm not the only one confused! Incidentally, your blog was the first listing Google brought up! Thanks!

Thanks! I took my Razr apart, removed the battery and then reinserted it. Now everything works, including the charger. I didn't need a new battery, just your great advice.
