    Turn on your computer, plug the usb into the phone then to the computer...at this point you should get a screen (or a notification, at the top...if so, drag it down) on your Razr giving you the usb options...select "pc mode".


    Then on your phone....click the menu button (botton left), settings, wireless and networks, tethering and mobile hotspot, and select USB tethering.

    You can only select USB tethering if the usb is plugged into the computer and phone...otherwise its shaded out and non clickable.

    Thats how mine works...
