    Can I use Motorola Phone Tools to transfer games from one RAZR to another? If not, is there another way?

    Not as far as I know. I believe when you buy a game and install it, the game ties itself to your phones unique serial number (IMEI or ESN) so that you can't transfer it to use on another phone. This protects the revenue ($) of person who made the game to ensure their game won't be copied and spread around en masse.

    ...if I'm wrong or if you do find a way, please let me know, because I also have some old phones that have games on them I'd like to transfer to newer phones.

    These were free games. If I could just retrieve the files I could install them on the new phone.
