Guys, just to let you know. I am using the SFR (France) version of the phone with an U.S. sim card.
The phone just got updated to 4.1.2 two days ago. The phone feels very smooth, although I have noticed some applications are forceclosing. I have also experienced some bluetooth/wif issues ( sometimes the network can be found, although other phones can find it)
Play Music is forceclosing sometimes( not experienced before).
Camera ( believe it or not, it's even faster) you have now the option of removing the shutter sound! YES!!!!!!
All togheter, a great phone, not the best looker, but works brilliantly.
Onem thing, can't find any good case for it.Does anyone know where I could get something slim, eventually to cover the screen bezel?

FM radio works until you answer call/make a call. After that dreadful loud noise appears, at least on my "I"...
It's a pity :(

Hey guys, bring other good news. As we know Razr I, supports radio with the "FM radio" application. then the only weakness of razr I, is that does not support flash player. BUT i found a browser that has integrated flash player and is capable of reproducing flash player in razr I. Try it! its awesome, his name is "Puffin Web Browser" I'm not lying, is the only browser that allow me to play flash player. (without install flash player because is not possible). I tried skyfire and dolphin. which are supposed to have integrated flash player but it didnt work with them. so if you want to play flash player try with "Puffin Web Browser". (im NOT root user). I hope in the future razr I supports flash player. Maybe with the jelly bean upgrade. but for now this is my solution. There are other solutions on the web, but you have to be root user. (sorry for my bad english)

Got this phone just after christmas, upgraded from motorola defy. I am very impressed with it. Have found it really easy to use and very responsive. Use it for calls, text, email and as a laptop on the move.
Can't believe how advanced it is compared to my defy.
I would highly recommend this to everyone and sing its praises from the roof tops!

hey guys,you can download "fm radio" application and u will have fm radio. i have it and it works without wifi or 3g. like a normal radio. this is because razr i have an internal chip for radio, but has no application to run it. i have "fm radio" application. I used the application in places without signal and without wifi and it works great!!! receive all local stations. you need to connect the headphones for it to work. razr i is awesome (sorry for my bad english)

This is a great phone, I have been using it since nov-2012. Is fast, actual multitask, works great on 3g, wifi. Great screen, videos look great, good sound, use it for six email accounts and get emails on time always, , also have installed more than 30 apps and all of them work great. No problem with my microSD either. Bluetooth works nice, best Motorola ever. Don´t know why most the world only think of Iphones and S3.

> In reply to A.J 101 @ 2013-01-30 20:24 from nUh@ - click to readGet your facts straigt. if your RAZR i faulted as you described it's because of something YOU did. App, spyware, virus and so on. Otherwise it would have happend to all, and there's no reason why it would happen after 25 days and not the first day or so. Retrace your steps, find out what you did before it started to malfunction.

Secondly, you can hard reset/shutdown your phone by holding the power button and volume down for 15 seconds. After this you can start the phone in boot recovery mode to perform a complete factory reset if necessary*. Then upgade to jellybean, that update is seeding now I think.

Also, it doesn't matter if a phone is budget, middle class or high end (the RAZR i is middle class btw), all phones can malfunction if it's owner doesn't know what he or she is doing.

*How to factory reset if you can't do it in the phone menu:
1) Ensure the handset is powered off

2) Hold down the VOL DOWN and press the POWER ON key

The phone will power up in Fastboot Flash mode

3) Press the DOWN VOL until "Recovery" is highlighted, then press the VOL UP key to select.

A picture of an Android will appear in the screen witha "!" symbol

4) Press VOL UP and VOL DOWN simultaneously

A blue Android system recovery menu will appear

5) Press the VOL UP / VOL DOWN keys to highlight "wipe data/factory reset" then PRESS the POWER ON key to select.

The phone will now clear the data to factory reset which takes about a minute.
