Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Text/Voice Messages I've had my phone for over a year and a half. Since day 1, I have had text messaging problems meaning I wasn't recieving nor sending them out until I would turn and off my phone. My battery was also terrible and decreased tremendously up until recently where I would make 1 phone call and it would die on me. Anyway, I got a new battery and now my text messaging problems are in full force to the point where not even turning on and off the phone solves anything and my voice mail is not even coming through. HELP!

I had the same problem. If you go to your message settings and select GPRS, change it to ON then to OFF. Then turn your phone off for a few mins then back on. You should receive all of your messages and all of your sent ones will go through. I have had to do this a couple of times, but it does fix it for quite a while. It is a know problem with the V3. Hope this helps. :-)

Cant send or recieve text messages on my mobile phone

hi, if you are having trouble sending or recieving text messages then the fisrt thing you need to do is delete all the sent and recieved messages and also drafts due to the fact that if your memory is full this will give you loads of problem sending and recieving text or mms messages so deleting these will then get your messages working again.

If how ever you still cant send or recieve text messages then the chances are that your message center number is wrong or got mest up, what you need to do is contact your service provider and ask them to send you the text message center number settings, they will then tell you the correct message center number and how to change this setting on your phone.

They wont charge for this and it will only take 2 minutes to solve your problem.

Unable to send messages form zong's sim on Htc mobile shadow II

Seems like you have a problem in your text message service center number. Either by knowingly or unknowingly, you have edited the service center number for text messages for that particular sim.
The best way is to find a friend who uses the same network and look at his service center number and type that number exactly in your device's service center number field. That way, it'll be fixed

How well will Google voice integrate with my phone? I am getting an Android phone, and wondering whether or not I should port my current number to Verizon or to Google Voice. Before I make a decision I...

Google Voice is integrated withthe dialer. When you use the dialer, it uses Google Voice to call out. Theactual Google Voice app is where you'll get your text messages and voicemails.
When you call or text someone, they'll see your Gvoice number.
The main downside to it is that in order to get your voicemails and texts, youhave to have data enabled, so you wouldn't be able to use an app likeJuiceDefender. And if 3G goes down while you're out on the town, you won't beable to get your messages unless you can bum wifi off a Starbucks or something.
Personally, I've only had that problem once or twice (but I use Virgin Mobile,with Verizon it shouldn't be a problem at all), so it wasn't a huge deal. Youalways have regular texting if you really need it.

Why can't I recieve text messages from other cell phones?

I had this problem once with another cell and I found out that some of the text messages from other phones, like the LG and PDA phones send with kilobytes that are needed to be "downloaded" through a multi-media package or internet access. If you are able to send texts and they receive them, check with your carrier.
Also, try shutting the phone off and restarting.

Let me know if this helps.
