DROID RAZRs Receiving “Sim Card Authorization Error” – Verizon is Aware of the Issue

Over the last couple of hours, we have received a number of reports (they are filling up the comments now too) from DROID RAZR owners who are experiencing some sort of micro SIM issue. In their notification bar, they are seeing a message that reads “SIM card authorization error” and “The SIM Card may not be authorized for LTE service. Please Power down the phone and contact Wireless Provider Customer Service.” After receiving these messages, the phone cannot no longer operate on Big Red’s 4G LTE network.

Verizon is apparently aware of the situation, but from what we can tell, may not know the cause of it. Some of our readers are being told that they simply need a new SIM card – would be unfortunate if every RAZR owner in the U.S. needed to order one though.

I should point out that my RAZR so far, has not experienced this.

Everyone’s RAZR OK or are you running into LTE and SIM issues?

Cheers Andrew, Ryan, Jerry and Luis!

  • Droid Razr… happened to me after awaking from sleep.  A feature I normally do not use.  Never seen this before and the weird thing is that the email it had linked with the “SIM card identity verification was a hotmail not my gmail…  Kind of felt like an app to capture passwords.

  • I had a problem with getting the LTE. Lost my data when they put in a new sim card now the lte is agian not there getting a new phone. 

  • Pirfeckt

    Mine just got this error

  • Matt0824

    I just had this happen to me. It’s been 1 month since I received this phone. Can’t seem to shake it off either. Guess I have to call and see what’s up.

  • Alleneugina

    I just took the card out a and put it back in, it worked fine after.

    what’s coming this Friday?

  • Guest

    hey, who removed my comment?

  • Michelle

    I got the error last night around 11:30ish

  • Doug Backholm

    Hate my razr because of this problem.

  • Dave C

    I had to have two sim cards replaced, it eventually confused the device so much it ceased to exist.  Verizon replaced the device, but it still didnt really work as advertised.  The 4G network is down more than its up in this area.. I took it back today… NO THANKS!!

  • Rkevinadams

    Like the look and feel of my razor but been very disappointed. Snubbed iPhone 4s cause who wants a 3g phone. First had the sim card error. New sim card..still didn’t work. Told limited number of razors were having problems. Engineers working on it. Downloaded update yesterday. Still spotty 4g and lost signals. No consistent 4g experience. Hear varied reports of verizon 4g network problems. Is this phone the problem or the network? Live in Richmond, VA.

  • Robertpek

    After 1 week of owning the Razr I received the error message 3 times in one day. The Verizon Technical Support Rep in Northbrook Illinois says it happens when the Razr goes from 3G to 4G and that it is normal. I do not by this at all. To me it’s definitely a hardware or software issue.

  • Foxslying

    GN no golrilla glass no good!

  • Robslp

    My error message showed up today for the first time. I am in IL. Guess I will contact Verizon.

  • Bobv1971

    I had the problem after I enabled the SIM card lock under Location and Security. After experiencing the error, I disabled the lock, rebooted and I haven’t had the error again. 

  • Smokering

    Received the error this afternoon…..powered phone down, re-seated SIM card, powered back up and seems to be working fine now.

  • Douglb8875

    It just happened to me…..for the third time. First time new phone, but they sent the wrong SIM, new SIM second time, this time, a reset fixed it.

  • Masterrom

    I too have started receiving the SIM card error message as stated above.  Got my phone thru Amazon.com during their penny sales event.  Have had the phone for about 2.5 weeks now or so.  Also, a side issue, aren’t these phones supposed to have 16GB internal memory?  My storage info states only 8GB.  The external card reads 16GB however.  I have not contacted Verizon yet, but looks like I will.

  • Brutality1100

    I woke up this morning with the error I turned my phone off, took the sim card out and put it back in. Now it works fine and the error appears to be gone.

  • stephen jester

    yeah having the same issue, again.. no 4g in minneapolis

  • Corvettegs

    I have a new razor phone just received it and it has the air on an I can
    get rid of it yes it is very upsetting

  • Monty Waggoner

    Hmm, I noticed that yesterday in the Verizon store. I was playing with the RAZR and Rezound. I thought it was a little BS that the iPhones had internet but the ones I was looking at didn’t. I figured it was so the iPhone customers wouldn’t accidentally see how fast 4G was. Now I know!

  • Carlos7019

    You have to turn your phone off for about 10 min. And it should take care of it

  • Anonymous

    I just got a Razr, It had a dead pixel, Amazon sent me a new one, and it has more dead pixels. Anyone else with this problem??

  • Nerdslogic

    I experienced this. Reboot fixed it.

  • Iheartsavannah

    I currently have no data at all, 3G came back for about 5 minutes but is gone again. I only have the signal bars at the top. Only able to make phone calls and text. Sure hope they fix this fast…

  • Joe Smith

    My razr had this pop up today around 11am in Phoenix, then I lost all data, then data came back for a couple hours on 3G around 3pm, and now I am back to having the SIM card error message with no data, and no cell service

  • Alexm22289

    not sure if its just me but recently 2 minutes ago my 4g symbol popped up in the corner of my razr and everything seems to be fine. same with you guys?

  • Scottdroidx

    Are the Droid razrs the only ones affected by this?

  • Alstef

    Had no network connection for abt two he’s.

  • Scottdroidx

    I has it happen to me earlier while I was in New Orleans. On my way to Verizon to see about getting another similar card.

  • Just Talked to Verizon customer service and they stated that the reason for the authorization error was because of the 4G network being down.  Whether or not that’s the reason is to be seen.

    • Jayson M Wright

      I can believe that…… here in Milwaukee, my Mifi 4g cards have been “off again, on again” all day.

  • Jayson M Wright

    Just had the same exact thing happen!!! What I want to know is: Why won’t the Razr revert back to 3g when 4g is not available????? Answer me that!!!!!

  • Anonymous

    I have this problem on my phone. Customer service wasn’t much help beyond saying they’re working on the problem. I actually just now got the SIM error again and can’t dismiss it. But I was at least able to get the phone to stay online by disabling LTE. From the home screen, do settings > wireless & networks > mobile networks > network mode > CDMA only. It took a couple minutes to kick in but I’ve been online fine since then.

    • Jayson M Wright

      Will try that and update!

  • Smid30

    Yup same here. had sim error emssage for abput 16 hrs.  for the past 4 hours I havn’t seen the sim error message but I still cannot make any calls, text or surf the net. Verizon custoemr service advised that I geta  new sim card

  • just got it today.. powered on.off and 4G was on for like 10 mins. Gone now! no 3G either.

  • Ram77

    I just got this error today. The only thing I can figure is that my area didn’t have 4G coverage and was expected to have it available soon.  So Ive been running 3G for a bit.  Maybe that could be it … not sure … but I really like this phone, hope it’s a quick fix. 

  • Wnydek

    Its not the SIM card: it’s Verizon. Went through the replacement routine yesterday – then on hold with support for a hour. Said they were working on it – try today. It worked this AM, then errored this afternoon, then came back after a reboot.

    They said it’s an issue with 4G LTE new activations. I suspect its not just new ones, though.

  • Nexusplz

    today mine got this..Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr
    first the Bionic was playing its 4Gto NO-G games so I returned that in Sept..Now this. WTF Moto?

  • For the record, just stopped by Verizon store, to see if they could hook me up with a new SIM card. I was told that replacing the SIM card would resolve the issue for perhaps 16 hours, after which issue would come back. Which is just awesome.

  • Ghest

    SUCKS FOR YOU PEOPLE WHO BOUGHT FROM ONLINE ( AMAZON, EBAY, BB ONLINE) HAHA

    I wouldn’t bother with customer service about this. They have an automated message saying, “We’re working on it.” 

  • Jeroth Behemeloth

    I’m having the same issue.  Verizon told me to go to the nearest Verizon store and get my sim replaced.  I got my phone through Amazon’s 1 cent sale.  I wonder if others with this problem also got their phone through Amazon?

  • newrazr

    Damn, just got the message. So I guess I need a new sim card?

  • cobalt train

    yes i have the sim error and have had my sim card replaced and 1 week later had the problem again, called verizon and was informed i would have to get a whole new phone

  • chris

    I got mine on black friday i was able to access LTE for about 10 days and then ive had this same message ever since with the red “X” on the notification bar and it annoys me a lot, It seems that i cant even get on 3G as i used to before.

  • Rob Z.

    I received the error and followed the instructions. The Verizon Support Representative did not initially know of the issue but after searching their systems did see that there was an issue with the 4G LTE network.

  • Jonathan hernandez

    this started on Monday for me and they reset my phone and it worked. I thought it was because my new phone had shipped from Amazon, first one had a dead pixel, and that it was thinking it was supposed to be in the new phone. Well it was working fine until I put it in the new phone the next day and within a couple of minutes I get the error again. They reset it again and it worked for a bit, at least an hour, left it charging and when I picked it up again there was the sim card authorization error once more. I call and they decide to send me a new sim card, I chose to ship it instead of heading out to the store last night. It just came in and the dumb asses set me the normal sized sim instead of a micro. I call in again and they say it is a network problem when yesterday they said there was no outage and it was my phone. they said a new sim would not fix it. It does not make sense that this is a network issue if it is just the razr being affected. I got this phone for 1cent from amazon so can’t really replace it for a different phone unless i want to pay the current price. So if this is not fixed soon I am just canceling and going back to virgin mobile.

    • Monty Waggoner

      It doesn’t matter if you paid 1 cent or $1000, your phone is under warranty and can be replaced for free. It’s not your fault you got a good deal.

  • Down in Chicago.

  • Panzram47

    JJust got this error

  • Tytrojanman

    Just happened to me here in Cedar Rapids, IA at 1 PM. Just got off the phone with Verizon, said they opened a ticket 4 hours ago to look into the issue. They do not have an ETA on when they expect it to be fixed. They did offer to call back or text me back with updates as they become known. Very disappointing. In the meantime, to get internet access on 3G you can toggle back and forth between Airplane mode and Normal if you lose your 4G.

  • Mine is just fine. I have yet to experience any of the problems mentioned on this site. In fact it has operated perfectly for me so far.

  • Dodgegt8

    Its verzion’s whole 4g network that is having the problems. Not just the razr. My 4g xoom is down, same with my brothers thunderbolt and my dads bionic. Verizon is working on the problem.

  • Darthseph23

    I reported in earlier, and wanted to note that I still haven’t seen the issue.  I’m in San Diego and still have that sweet little 4GLTE logo active on my Razr.  This includes an overnight switch to WiFi thanks to Smart Actions.

    Also, I’ve only had a battery issue once, but that was due to heat (I could definitely feel it coming off the back of the phone).  Heat is by far the worst enemy to battery life I’ve ever seen.  Otherwise, I can get through most days with no issues.  I tend to use computers more than my phone though for browsing and whatnot, so that could be a factor.

  • I just received that error on my Razr within the last hour.

    Just happened to me at 12:40pm EST in Western Michigan. Damn it all.

    • Jello219

      Same time same issue, same location

  • my RAZR is running smooth as silk! no issues whatsoever. On the ither hand LTE devices typically do have activation issues, so i woudlnt besuprised if thats what folks are complaining about. My old bionic took 5 hours to activate! RAZR activation took 15 minutes. Who knows?

  • Anonymous

    It’s on more than just RAZR’s, devices having problems with LTE in general according to vzw twitter.  Just that RAZR is the only one indicating there is an LTE problem (and putting you on 3g instead).  

    So the question is would you rather know your device isn’t going to get 4g due to a problem and be stuffed to 3g, or wonder why your data isn’t working?

  • I don’t believe this is only a RAZR problem.. it popped up on my Xoom on 12/6 and hasn’t gone away, even with restarts.  I don’t regularly operate in 4G area, so it’s not really affecting me, and 3G is working fine (although I’m on wifi 99% of the time anyway)

  • Same problem here, i was going to call verizon back when they were troubleshooting with me but saw this and decided to hold tight

  • Aranciot

    Around 3pm est I also lost my sim connection I called Verizon wireless and was told there was a batch of new sims that were defective and were entered in to the system causing a the sim registration to fail. In order for Verizon to correct the issue the LTE registration and authentication must be shut down so no other bad sim cards can register. I called verizon back today and was told this issue could last over a Week or so.

    Saw the error this morning. I was back on LTE and the message was gone 2 hours later after I restarted the phone.

    Here in washington DC, my RAZR is working just fine. Was waiting for GNex but amazon’s offer of RAZR for a cent was too hard for me to let go…… The phone is awesome and have no regrets buying it….

  • Cmubwanel

    This is funny as I got this message last night and called Big Red, after doing the simulated battery pull and then removing and returning the SIM card.  The technician actually couldn’t think of a fix, so they are shipping me a new SIM card that will arrive today.  We’ll see how it works/doesn’t work, but, either way, my RAZR has been nothing but great.  The battery could last longer, but, from what I’ve read in the forums it is lasting longer than other new devices.  Then, after talking with a colleague who has the i*hone 4, the longevity is comparable to his device.  Works for me.

  • No problem with my Razr

  • HOGya

    I started getting the message yesterday.  I went to a local Verizon store after work, where their excellent customer service told me to…call customer service (I literally called Verizon customer service from within a Verizon store).  Anyways, I talked to some woman and she assured me it was simply an issue with the 4G network and not the phone.  She instructed me to wait “about an hour” and that the problem should be fixed.  Well, it’s now been about 12 hours and I’m still getting the same error issues.  Not only can I not access the 4G network, but it seems to occasionally be negatively affecting my 3G access as well – I have received a few error messages this morning about apps not being able to load data.  What a mess.

    • HOGya

      I should also note that I live in Pittsburgh…maybe it’s a regional issue with 4G?

  • Drazyw

    Ok, so I talked to the verizon guy at my local store. He said I need a new SIM card. Well, we put in a new card, and that didn’t work. Now, my phone is stuck with nothing.  The old SIM won’t let go of the car and with the 4g side down, it won’t register that I have a new SIM. So now nothing works. Don’t let them give you a new SIM.  It will kill everything till their system is back up.  After he talked with Verizon on the phone, they told him that the LTE netowrk was down on the east coast and that my phone wouldn’t work until it’s back up. Who knows when that will be.  I tried using my old SIM and it worked for a while, but eventually it stopped.  So I’m sitting here waiting.

      Sorry, but duh.  This issue was posted last night.  Why would you go to the verizon store for a new sim or phone?  This is a verizon system issue and even affects 3g.

        Going to the store you bought the phone from to get service?  Yeah…what the hell was he thinking???

          Look at all of the comments…..I’ve had the issue since 5pm monday and only have 3g.  Even Verizon initially didn’t know what was going on and people are still making an issue out of something that is being worked on.  Yes, we are getting a sim message, which has returned on my phone this morning.  Its just not worth the trip, when WE KNOW its not our razr.

  • Have not yet seen this error, still on the blazing fast LTE. Still wondering what all this battery fuss is about, I go 18 hours under very heavy use, music, games, sketchbook, with out it charging with no problem. Did notice that Blur takes up a solid 300-400MB of ram though. And all the bloatware apps that I can’t freeze restart themselves. So I could probably extend battery with a rom when they get released

    I got this error originally yesterday. VZ replaced the hardware – I still got the error; so I replaced the same, I still get the error, so swapping the sim does not resolve the issue. Restarting can sometimes allow the sim to connect briefly 4G before the error pops up again, and you lose 4G 

  • Atabizi

    Yup, I started getting that error about 4 hours ago.  I called customer service and I was told that Verizon 4G is down in the whole northeast.   It should be back up tomorrow morning.

    Wow lots of hostility here… having no problems here on my RAZR but when i did go to buy my RAZR at the Vz store the guy was turning on and putting in the sim card and the phone shut down and refused to turn back on even after being plugged into a computer. Really not concerned either way as it is just my rental phone until the nexus comes out. I would be keeping this phone because it is so thin but the lack of corporate sync working for me and there also seems to be some data error when I try and use the browser which sometimes requires a reboot. I don’t know if this is a lte issue or a phone one but come Friday I hope the nexus can fix this problem.

  • Christopher McVicker

    This started happening to me this afternoon.  Phew, I thought I was the only one.  Not that I really care.  I’m only “renting” this phone until the GNex comes out.  The battery on my Pre Plus was lasting about 20 minutes on a full charge and I couldn’t take it anymore.

The rep i talked to said it sounded like an sim card problem but the thing is after i make a call or turn the phone off and back on I lose my 3g for like an hour… a bit upset and interested by the sudden onset of the problem.

    Spoke with VZW and this is a network issue on the East coast. All LTE phones in the area are in 3G mode. Only the RAZR is sharp enough to notify about the actual cause.

      I definitely still have blazing fast 4g on my bionic.. unless its been fixed by now.

    • TC Infantino

      Hmm, they must have fixed it then, because I still have wicked fast 4G speeds on my HTC Rezound with Beats audio (just had to list the whole name because I have been browsing the owners manual and they refer to the phone with the full name every single time.  It is laughable, I wonder if Monster and Dr Dre get a kickback everytime the beats is mentioned.)

  • Don’t worry guys, I know Motorola and VZW are working on a fix.  When I was having tons of issues with my Bionic they told me Motorola was working on a fix for all my issues that would be out in November…. Now that it’s already December, I realize what the fix was… it was the Razr… My guess is the fix they are working on for your Razr’s will be some other new Motorola phone that will come out this, or next month at the latest. 

    See, instead of fixing phones that Motorola has already released, they figure, why not just release a complete new model instead!

    F*** YOU MOTOROLA!!!! F*** YOU!!!!!!

    sincerely,

    A Bionic owner who will be ditching this POS as soon as the GNEXUS arrives.

    • Dude

      All you have to do is install the leaked update on the Bionic. Completely fixes the phone. Really not that big of a deal.

      • I did install it actually, and I’m still having intermittent radio issues.  However, the fact remains, why should I have to resort to some *hacked* fix to get my phone working normally.  As far as I remember, I bought this phone expecting it to work, not as a kit to test my ability to install and tweak software.

        • Alexander Garcia

          Then you just may be following the wrong camp. I hear that iOS and WP7 work perfectly fine out the box with minimal to non tweaking required. Just a thought to consider. 🙂

          • Anonymous

            that’s not cool.  phones should have a minimum level of functionality.  and the bionic definitely had some issues meeting this expected level.  i’m in agreement that i shouldn’t have to resort to leaks to get my phone to a working state.  sure it’s easy and i’ve debated pulling the trigger on 893 for a while.. but it really doesn’t sit well with me that there are no bootloader and kernel stock images in the fxz file out there.. i don’t want to get off the upgrade path.  and at this point, the upgrade should literally be around the corner since we’re in the >3 months time period now as well as a few days into the 30-60 days time frame matt the forums manager gave on the upgrade.  i’m trying to wait as long as i can for the the official since i’ve waited this long.

            but don’t berate someone because they didn’t install a leak.

          • Dude

            In all reality it doesn’t even matter if you’re off the update path. Droid life always releases the updates as people start receiving them. When I had my og droid I installed all the updates before they ever hit my phone over the air because of Droid Life. You will get the ota updates faster that way.

          • Anonymous

            i understand that.  but with all those different leak version numbers floating around out there, there is some uncertainty surrounding getting back on the path if you install the wrong one.  this is complicated by the fact that the bootloader and kernel always remain at their updated versions and we have no stock images to flash to return the phone completely to stock.  the OGD’s sbf file had all of this.

          • Dude

            I installed the leaked ota update on my Bionic by just dropping it into the root folder. I went into settings, system updates and it found the update and installed it.

          • Anonymous

            Well in that case I stand corrected. On stock? Thought I heard it wasn’t the case anymore on motos phones.

          • Alexander Garcia

            No berating nor sarcasm intended. I love Android and what it offers… BUT it is definitely not for everyone. Android is so flawed in many ways that tweaking and modding is pretty much a standard going in. That being said, you gotta give Apple and WP7 credit in that their phones simply “just work” and work pretty well out the box. Even Google’s own Galaxy Nexus had issues when launched in the UK.

          • Anonymous

            touche. i agree. i wish all android phones were as seamless as apple products. they’d really be perfect then. but id take what we have over the alternative any day.

          • Alexander Garcia

            agreed my friend. i’ll stick with android cause the benefits i get from it far outweigh the headaches 🙂

            I love android, but i feel IOS is well polished and even WP7 as you mentioned. Come on google get your act together already and stop playing kids games.

          • So you think it’s fine for cell phone manufacturers to release cell phones that cannot reliably hold cell reception?

            I’m sorry but I don’t think the android crowd expects to have to tweak their phones to make them work as phones…

            Honestly, Apple does seem to do a better job of addressing issues with their products.  They popped out a fix for the iphone 4s weeks after it was a known issue.  Motorola seems too focused on crapping new phones every month then fixing current issues. 

            This is my first and last Motorola phone. 

          • Alexander Garcia

            no it is definitely not okay. but what do you expect from such a highly fragmented platform where the carriers pull all the strings and even Google has very little to no final say on the devices being put forth. this is pretty much what we should all expect from Android going in. ive accepted it and i deal and in all honesty the benefits far outweight the troubles.

          • Anonymous

            Just one phone. Moto has to work with a lot of products. They got all their device on GB. Tell me which manufacturers can say that?

          • Mike

            What on Earth are you talking about? Coming from a Motorola Atrix 4G and Motorola Xoom, in the past year, I can easily say I will never purchase another Motorola phone as long as I live. The support for their customer base is *horrific*. They couldn’t care less about how their customers feel. They don’t release updates, they release new phones. They lock everything down so nothing can be changed, then they say it’s the carriers that ask for it (despite the carriers saying they didn’t).

            So you’re saying you should fine receiving a phone with spotty reception and bad software (MotoBlur? LOL) because you can easily fix it…but we’re talking about a company notorious for not allowing their customer base access to the bootloader, which makes the fixes very difficult to pull off.

            Stop defending Motorola, they make ****y products and they don’t stand up for them at all.

        • Dude

          It’s not a hacked fix. It’s the ota update that Verizon is releasing.

          • It’s not an official OTA that verizon is releasing.  So far VZW has done nothing but state they are working on a fix.  Get your facts straight.

          • Dude

            haha 😉 I did plenty of research before I installed it. It’s all gooood. I actually just found a post somewhere where someone who just bought a Bionic turned it on and the update was already pushed to his phone ready to be installed. Wish I knew where I read this so I could quote it. Believe what you want buddy, the update works.

          • As I stated earlier… I AM running the update but I still have intermittent issues.  It’s made it more stable, but I still get occasional drops, the phone locks up sometimes and the buzz is still their, albeit fainter now. 

            It’s still not an official update and that is my point. I should not have to scour through XDA to figure out what the fixes are to get my phone working better.

          • Dude

            Hey I agree with ya that we shouldn’t have to find the fixes. But my point still remains, there are fixes available. Last I checked there were 3 leaked updates. The first one I installed worked for me so maybe you just need to try the other ones. Call me crazy but I bought the phone long after I knew about the issues with it. I bought it, applied the leak and I fell in love with the phone and have no problems 🙂

          • I’m glad you like it, it just irritates me that a company would release a product then not address known issues with it in a timely manner. 

            I think for me its more the principle of the situation that really rubs me the wrong way.

            Funny that Bionic owners are so active in Razr threads!! hahaha 🙂

          I had 5.5.893 which gave me no problems but Im now running the [S]HIFTER BAS3 rom which is based on 5.7.893 and it hasnt given me any issues either.

      If the razr has separate modems like the tb, there should be an option buried deep somewhere to have it authenticated differently. Gives you 3g back. Look up the LTE outage on here when the thunderbolt was all that existed.

    My RAZR has been DOA since getting a new SIM card at the VZW Store. The moron at VZW first accused me of doing something to my SIM card. Then another VZW rep’s RAZR went tits up. They put a new SIM card in and told me to come back in the morning, if it didn’t authenticate in a “15 minutes or in the morning”.  F this I’m trading up to a Nexus.

        you didnt miss anything. friday will bring the 3rd highest rated phone on verizon behind the rezound and razr. but GN fans just cant seem to read and understand the poor reviews their baby is getting

        • EC8CH

          Honestly the RAZR would probably be my second choice, but I would probably wait until they released an update with a HD screen.

          Poor reviews? got any links, most reviews I’ve read place it substantially ahead of both the RAZR and Rezound? example: http://www.theverge.com/products/galaxy-nexus-gsm/2946

            Using The Verge is like referencing Fox News.  The GN is getting good reviews though, but so have the Rezound and Razr.

          • Anonymous

            The razr is a 9 according to the reviews. I do not feel the GN nor the rezound can top that.

          • Dominick DeVito

            which reviews show a Razr as a 9?

        A plastic device with bad radios and gps.

        • Anonymous

          ATTN: AnGeLFaCe77 — the RAZR is made of plastic (just with a kevlar coating) and pretty much EVERY OTHER MOTO PHONE is made of plastic.  

          Bad Radios & GPS?  Samsung has had issues in the past, but simply implying that all Samsung phones have the same issue (particularly a GED device) is just ignorant.

          It seems very apparent you’re trolling or really don’t know anything about the Galaxy Nexus as it shares a non-proprietary glass very similar to Gorilla Glass that has been shown to hold up just as well if not better than the RAZR glass.

            retardedface77 is in denial. exception is the 2nd step to healing. sounds to me more like once you go Motorola, you realize you’ll never go Motorola ever again. LOL Motorola has way too many bugs and blur and locked bootloader and retardedface7; Who would want any of these?

          • Anonymous

            GNex fans have this narrow-minded view that everyone cares about the same features on their phones, ignoring that 90% of people don’t care about a “locked bootloader” and many of the other differences

          • Bill Mitchell

            Yes it’s good, but again, it’s not the best working.

          • Anonymous

            since I’m more specifically looking at the droid 4, I’ll gladly sacrifice a little bit of screen quality for a physical keyboard and moto smart actions… god forbid someone didn’t need a phone to be ‘stock’ or ‘unlockable’

          • Bill Mitchell

            Well yeah, but you’re talking about completely different things! A keyboard is something you might want, and that’s understandable. Fact is fact though, and my Razr is not nearly as fluid as the Galaxy Nexus is. It lags when I try to open apps, scroll, and especially when playing games. Why do you assume someone is less intelligent than you when they say they want stock? :'( Very sad.

          • Anonymous

            I didn’t say anything about intelligence; I just get the feeling that Gnex fans are presuming that stock ICS is a solid plus, and its not.

          • Bill Mitchell

            Well… It pretty muchis… but I can understand why you’dthing Blur is better!!! That was a lie, I don’t understand how anyone couldthink that.

          • Bill Mitchell

            Plus a better processor, screen, and not only ICS but STOCK ICS 😉

          • Anonymous

            moto could have gone with 460, but they wanted to have the best battery life possible. Not everybody love stock android. Moto has moto action and moto cast something google does not have.

          • j4s0n

            Performance wise you’re looking at 2 almost identical phones. Both have 1024mb of ram, and dual core 1200mHz TI processors. Sure the Nexus might have one that is a bit newer but its not a HUGE life-changing night-and day difference at all. When looking to get a top end high performance phone, you can’t go wrong with either the Razr or the Nexus!

          • Bill Mitchell

            Specs arent everything though, and ICS is leaps and bounds in front of gingerbread. The Razr will get it in a month or so anyways, though.

        • Guest

          Before this RAZR, my previous two phones were Samsung Android phones, and I’ve NEVER had more unreliable, buggy electronic products in my life! The second was a supposed step-up replacement for the first, which had all sorts of problems, and the replacement was significantly worse than the first one! Crashes, restarts, freezes, drops. The thing drove me nuts!! This LTE problem, granted a BIG problem seeing as how I now have no data service at all and they have no idea when it will be fixed, is the first and only issue I’ve had with the RAZR, so far (knocking on wood now).

          • Bill Mitchell

            I understand where you’re coming from, as I’ve heard about a lot of problems with Samsung Galaxy phones (not nearly as many with the Galaxy S2s) but the problems are mainly with the software and not the hardware. Don’t get me wrong, Moto makes quality hardware, but the software… don’t get me started :p I just am pretty positive that the GN will be a quality phone in Hardware (Samsung) and definitely software (Google). Just my opinion though!

        • pony express

          are you kidding, i traded in the GN for the RAZR…just wait you will kick urself in the butt

          • Bill Mitchell

            I returned the Razr when I got my Nexus on launch day, and this is miles better… I really do not understand why you guys hate the Nexus/ love Moto so much, this is faster, more open, and more capable than the Razr. And like I said, I’ve had both. The Razr was good, but this is a lot better. What reasoning do you have for liking the Razr more?

      • Anonymous

        I could not agree more. It also has a bad camera, and weak radios as usual.

          I’m using a DX2 right now, and I need to share how annoying it is having separate internal memory plus an SD card. I would prefer one or the other like the DX or the GNex. Some apps default to internal “SD” memory, some to external. This happens despite using patches that flip flop the assignments.

          Point being 32GB is plenty of storage and I’ll prefer the GNex to my DX2 in that regard. I also prefer one large memory allocation over being able to connect as an SD card reader.

          • kretz

            I had the DX (assuming you’re referring to the Droid X) and it used both internal memory and a SD card. I believe the GNex is the only current device to not use an SD card.
