Re: Phone shuts down and restarts when typing text

Hmm, never heard this type of problem with V3. 1) Turn it off and disconnect everything and remove the battery. Leave it off for about 5 second. Put back the battery and power it back on and see if it still does the same. 2) If #1 doesn't work, try your best to backup all your data on the phone like contacts, etc that you want to keep. Then take it to your provider store (Cingular, Verizon, T-mobile, etc) and show them the problem. There might be a glitch in the firmware. But your provider should be able to troubleshoot it easily. You might lose all your phone information which was why it's best to back them up first.

I have the ZTE MAXX with Cricket as the service.

I would take your phone into the store you bought it from. Ask them to check if it is under warranty. Your phone may need to be repaired or replaced.

My phone keeps shutting off every time i go to type a text message

If it's truly a loose battery, more than likely it's the connections that are making secure contact. You can try with a thin pinted implement to pry the connection tabs on the battery compartment (the connectors onthe battery itself are fixed and imovable) outward ever so slightly and that will make for a better connection. But use care so that you don't over bend and break the connections.

Also look for any corrosion onthe connections which can cause intermittent failures.

My motorola W315 has been restarting itself lately at random times. Now, all night tonight, whenever I try to send a text message, once I press send it shuts itself down and restarts. On top of that, I'm...

its the same problem which i had with my phone.
there is no problem with your phones software but with hardware. Your phones HEAP(RAM) has became very weak to take load of your phone. I will advice you to go to a nearby motorola shop. If its under warranty it will be repaired free of cost.
thankyou for using fixya

Delete recent recipients

Only way I found to delete the recent recipients of texts was to do a full reset using this code *2767*3855# before doing it back up everything you want to keep onto your memeory card and save all your contacts onto your simcard then remove the simcard and memory card. Restart the phone and type in the code *2767*3855# and the phone will restart and recent recipient will be gone.
