Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Phone freezes at random times, pull battery to restart

V3 will freeze at random intervals ranging from a few seconds to several hours. I have to pull the battery & reseat it to get the phone back on. Checked battery contacts and swapped batteries; neither helped. I can turn it on and set it down and it will freeze or it will stay on while I carry it around. Leaving it open or closed makes no difference. Any options other than replacing it?

Your old phone may have just needed a new sim card, as for if your new is not working use the warranty and send it back and replace it.

Phone freezes up within moments of turning it on.

That sounds like a you have an antivirus or internet security on your phone? If the factory reset worked, then its probably one of the apps that you have on the phone which has a virus programmed into it. when you factory reset it did you reinstall apps?
my advice? factory reset it again and the very first thing you put on the phone is a free anti virus like AVG.

Hi, when a phone screen randomly freezes, it means that the phones memory is faulty or when an application you downloaded has virus.

What to do is this,

You will have to flash the phone to restore the memory of the phone.

My LG acts like it has a virus..

I have run into this problem a few times. So far, the first time I had to cold reboot the phone to factory settings. The second time, I noticed that it seems like a txt message is stuck, so I called the person and had them send a second message to push the first one through. This seem to correct it a bit. I then too out the battery and the sim card and restarted the phone without the sim card. Made sure that the contacts were all there, synced it and then put back the sim card for operation. So far so good.
I also checked, and found out that my sim card is still Cingular, which might also be a problem so I am going to change it for an AT&T one to see if it finalizes the solution.

Freezing/Stalling of Samsung Rant also Some Features have quit

I have found that disabling the key guard keeps it from freezing almost completely. Also, disabling and enabling bluetooh causes it to freeze - but that usually only lasts for a few seconds. It's definately the issue with the key guard for my phone that causes the problem.

Phone freezes up, restarts randomly, and is very slow.

Hello sg2134,
I too use the Sony Ericson Z750a. If the phone freezes up or it does not respond to the button presses, then switch off the mobile and switch it on again. If the problem persists, you can remove the battery and and the sim and put it back again. Then you will find the mobile to be normal again.
