I must admit I find the whole RAZR situation quite interesting myself.
Just out of curiosity why did you send yours back. Likes , dislikes etc?
First I was using Nokia's when they had good build quality and individual keys. Before the "fashion phone days". Then they began to cut back on quality and the plastic bodies would creak, and they started using "rocker" style keys where one key served as two.
So I migrated to the moto flip phone models. Mainly because I have rather large hands and prefer individual buttons to dial the phone, or text. However that said, I did not particularly like the moto phones. So I tried several other brands.
Then the RAZR came out and it appealed to me because it was one of the wider phones which felt very comfortable in my hand for long calls even though when in the car I use BT. The other thing I like about the RAZR, and perhaps I just got lucky is that mine had very good build quality, call quality and after two years It's still in fine shape and works very well. Also it has a great keypad (at least for me) that is well illuminated. Another feature for me is that it is flat with no external antenna. I generally do not like to wear a phone on my belt and during the week I'm in a suit, so this slips in my pocket without looking like a phone in my pocket.
When it comes to marketing obviously they did a good job and my wife likes the PINK RAZR just because it's a fashion phone, its' Pink, and she can also carry it easily. Again, we just got a good one.
So needless to say when I got my first BlackBerry I was really happy as I don't need a phone with a camera (although I would not mind once they get to 3MP or whatever it takes to get decent pictures) and I don't care about music.
Currently I could not be happier with my BlackBerry's as they both meet and exceed my needs.
