    can I buy manual for droid razr phone? or a phone number to talk to some one?
  • Robin Pearson Sep 29, 2014 04:30:
    This is one of the most useless sites I have ever seen! All I wanted to do is find out how to record AUDIO on my Droid Razr. The manual is ridiculous​--I couldn't find anything I needed! Even typing my question in the search area came up with nothing!

    ​IS THERE A WAY TO RECORD ONLY AUDIO WITHOUT THE VIDEO??? Every other, cheaper phone I've had could do it!

    Can I PLEASE get an answer??

    ​Thank you
