    Obviously that's no longer possible with devices like the Razr. :-(
    How about Airplaine mode?

    Or covering it with your tin foil hat?

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Well, as the OP, my final solution was get the Razr Maxx (instead of the Razr), hoping for better overall battery life and at the same time pay Verizon for their extended warranty.

    Not a perfect solution, but otherwise, it's just about the perfect phone.

    Old days are gone. Now the US government -- in actual fact -- has a separate chip with unpublished specs or capabilities, and an app that self-installs with full email read/write permissions implanted in every new cellphone.

    Put that under your tinfoil hat and toke on it.

    From PhoneScoop News:

    National Weather Service Emergency Alerts Start Today

    Thursday, 10:17 AM by Eric M. Zeman

    The National Weather Service today announced that its text-message emergency alert system goes live starting today. The Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) service, a joint effort between U.S. wireless network operators and the federal government, will deliver text message warnings to cell phone users based on a number of potential hazards, including tornadoes, flash floods, hurricanes, tsunamis, dust storms, extreme winds, blizzards, and ice storms. The messages are delivered based on location, so even those who are traveling will receive alerts for where they are, not where they live, if there's danger. Carriers participating in the program include AT&T, Cellcom, Cricket, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon Wireless. The alerts are not sent via the traditional SMS pipes, and are instead delivered through a system that is not affected by network congestion. The WAE can also deliver both AMBER Alerts and Presidential Alerts. Wireless subscribers can opt out of AMBER and Weather Alerts but not Presidential Alerts.

    Are you now claiming that the National Weather Service has made non-removable batteries legally required or something ??

    See xda link for context.

    NWS piece wasn't a specific page so I pasted it in. Yeah, too long for off-topic. But it does fit the flow of "Big Brother" and "tin foil hat".

    If you need a solution to be able to recharge your battery look into the energizer xpal external battery. I bought one for $54 with tax. It has 2 usb ports so you can recharge 2 phones at one time and the battery is 4000 mah
