    Help, wife threw Motorola Razr V8 Flip Phone - Now in 2 pieces

    Yea, my wife threw my Razr Flip Phone and now there is no flip, just 2 pieces. Any chance this is repairable and I can recover the 300 contacts? Anyone know of a repair shop?

    Phone doesn't turn on even if plugged into socket.

    Please Help!

    You can retrieve the contacts via Motorola Phone Tools, as long as the phone will hold a battery and power on. (You don't need the upper-flip for the phone to power on.)

    No power

    The phone won't power up. It will hold the battery and I can get the back cover on. Do you actually need the back cover on a phone to power it up?

    Is it possible that the battery is damaged and a replacement battery a solution?

    Internal circuitry a more likely cause?

    I can't really find any repair shops online either. Yea, I know the phone is 3 years old and was going to be replaced. I have Motorola Phone Tools but need power first.

    Thanks for your help.

    No, you don't need the battery cover. When you hold power, you don't see the keypad light flash? Typically, when a flip phone is broken in half, it only rips the flex cable, which shouldn't affect phone power.

    From the first time that I put the phone back together (flip came apart, battery was out) and then tried to turn it on, I've seen no light, flash, nothing. Thinking maybe the charge was affected, I plugged it in. No change. Holding down the off key doesn't generate any change.

    If the phone is really dead, my question is what is the likelihood it is a battery issue (it was 3 years old - could the impact have damaged it?) or it is an internal circuitry issue. Replacing batter easy and cheap. The other, well, not so easy.

    You could always get spare parts and try rebuilding the phone yourself..

    You're probably out of luck, honestly.

    Where do the contacts get stored on the phone anyway? Let's say the battery is the problem. Is there a backup battery source or is the battery failure enough to cause the contacts to disappear anyway?

    You can buy a new battery, but I wouldn't expect it to work.

    Try a local phone store, they have special tools for syncing and retrieving contacts. No promised if its possible without power but that is honestly your best bet.

    Google and try to rebuild the cell if not give it for repairing, the local stores sometime do a neat job and doesn't cost too much either. If the problem still shows after that, I think you'll have to go for a new one and this time tell the wife it's her's too
