    My razr maxx has quit vibrating on text messaging and backing out of forums. I can lightly tap on the side of the phone and it will vibrate again. I called Verizon today and he had me run the phone in safe mode for a couple of hours to see if it still did it. It did. He also told me to disable my smart actions. He said that they can send me a factory certified replacement if I want. Has anyone had this problem and if so any ideas on how to fix it? Also, is it a good idea to accept the factory replacement? I just don't want to get a "new" phone and the battery be horrible

    Most factory certified replacements are better than getting new. I would go for it and get it replaced asap.

    Typically, production runs are subject to QC and QA processes. This usually means the manufacturer will pull units at random for testing purposes to ensure the units are within spec. "Within spec" usually translates as "good enough." There's all kinds of complex math involved in determining the right number of units to pull for testing to "ensure" that a given (usually high) percentage of the production run is within spec.

    These test units and returned units are then moved to, for lack of a better term, a certification bench where the units are given the once-over and adjusted to bring every system of the unit to within spec.

    So, the difference is the units coming off the bench are known to be within spec in all their systems. Units coming off the line are assumed to be within spec. The land between "known" and "assumed" is where the faulting units are found.

    MUCH easier/safer to just get a free replacement. Why risk damaging your phone? And having no warranty afterwards? Sounds dumb to me...:D
