I thought I had a dead RAZR and the problem is apparently an incompatible cable. I plugged my RAZR into an LG USB cable that I use with my work Blackberry and left it overnight. Next morning the battery was totally dead. The only indication when I plugged it in was the alert light (top left of the screen) showing solid white. Next morning, this phone was still dead and the light was out. Plugging it in again, the light came on for a while and went out, still dead. I called Verizon and was about to make a trip to the Verizon store to get my third RAZR (first had a whacked screen). Before I left, I connected the Moto cable and after a few minutes the phone started up. I don't know which cable is proprietary, but it's definitely incompatible. P.S. I just created a rule using Smart Actions. When the phone is charging on USB display a message. Plugging it in with the Moto cable triggered the rule. Plugging in with the LG cable did not, even though the green battery animation showed that it was charging. The LG cable charges my work Blackberry all the time.
