I used to have a Razr. Got rid of it. It would never hold a battery charge for long. No matter how many new batteries I bought. The phone was crap.
I now have a HTC Tilt and its awesome
I suggest you upgrade phones!

Ok so If you are going to purchase a new phone, just take it from me, STAY AWAY FROM TOUCH SCREENS.
Stay away from anything thats been out for less than 6 months. Why?
Because as stated above they are first generation phones. Which means that they are unfinished, un-polished, Trial versions which are made in limited quality and sold only in countries like the US or India where there is a massive market for them.
After 6 months to a year of having all kinds of malfunction/hardware issues, they release a second version. 2nd Generation and above are what you want.
As for a recomendation, I use a Blackberry Curve 8900, 4th generation. Perfect, no problems at all.
If you're going to mobile way, I suggest an LG Voyager, Samsung Instinct, or a Rumor 2.

I just had this conversation with a group of people in real life the other night. Two people had cell phones that shut off while they are using it, including talking on it. I think the issue is probably more pervasive than people think. One of them mentioned two years and the other one agreed it was about that long before it started happening. I automatically thought about planned obsolescence but then one said they called the phone company and they were sent a new phone for free. So I'm not sure now.
