I hate my Motorola Droid Razr! After 3 years it has turned out to be a real crappy cell phone. Does not belong in the "smartphone" category. Forever freezes up, doesn't respond to anything I ask it to do. I am purchasing another brand of smartphone and will NEVER go back to Motorola again. I have tried many help/support tutorials and solutions and nothing works.I HATE THIS PHONE!!!

If you've had the phone for 3 years, then it's time for something new. The Motorola phones I've had have been pretty solid, but if you want to switch brands or even providers, then go for it. 

Technology changes so quickly that a 3 year old phone, regardless of manufacturer, is likely to seem slow, buggy, laggy - simply because it doesn't have the power to match the network capabilities NOW.  If it's only capable of 3G speeds, it will be slow compared to a phone with 4G capability.  After three years of use, the internal memory may be maxed out, especially if you haven't cleared stuff out, wiped the cache, etc, causing freezing and non-responsiveness.  It may not have enough RAM to effectively run updated apps....

I would say you are due for a new phone - so compare the newest models, go to a store and try them out, and then get whatever brand and model will work best for you.

You mad?  At the very least, it sounds like your phone could use some spring cleaning.  Try clearing the junk files from your phone by clearing your cache (especially Dalvik cache too), deleting old text messages, etc. because over time that will impact your phone's performance.  You'll be surprised with how much those simple tasks will improve the performance of your phone.  Also, something else to consider is that it could be an app that is conflicting with the stability of your phone.  Good luck.

The Razr & Razr Maxx have been around for a while, but it just got it's latest OS update in January. As EddieOC stated, a little maintenance and you can keep your Razr running smooth...clear cache & dalvik cache, delete junk files and unused apps. Clean Master has lots of good housecleaning functions in it. Good Luck!

eddie i just made a post and was hoping you could take a look at it.  i still kinda like my razr maxx.  sd card and hdmi out make it a real great phone over the current maxx.  not to mention the fact i can keep my unlimited data plan by sticking with a legacy phone!
