Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Problems getting bluetooth connection to stay on.

I have no problems using my bluetooth when I have it on and connected to my phone before I make a call.  However, if I answer a call and then decide to turn on my headset and choose the option "use bluetooth" in my phone, it only gives me the choice to "temporarily turn on the bluetooth", and then  it only stays connected for a few mintues, after which I get a message telling me I have a weak signal, and asking me whether I want to disconnect the bluetooth.  It doesn't give me any other choices.  What am I doing wrong?  Is the bluetooth only intended to work for a few minutes if accessed after a call has already started?  I have a Motorola Razr V3m(red)  and a Motorola H500 (red)headset.

    This solution does not apply to the V3m.  the bluetooth is turned on from the icon on the menu screen.  The problem is the "low signal strength" message one minute after turning on bluetooth during an existing call.

Your bluetooth is turned off.
Go into
MENU> SETTING> CONNECTIVITY> BLUETOOTH> STATUS (I THINK) ITS THE LAST OPTION> MAKE SURE THE MIDDLE OPTION IS NOT TURNED OFF.

We want to change the properties for our connection to the internet. This is the adapter we want to share "from". Just right-click in the corresponding icon and select Properties.

The Bluetooth Network adapter was automatically created during the Bluetooth installation.

There's a bug in Windows 2000 before SP3 where changing the sharing option may change IP configurations in this adapter. To make sure you're safe, we will note the current configuration.

In the General tab select the Internet Protocol components and click Properties.
Write down all the information from the next dialog, and click Cancel.
Back in the Adapter properties, select the "Sharing" tab and tick "Enable Internet Connection Sharing for this connection".
Now, to configure the Bluetooth USB, right- click the Bluetooth icon in the system tray and select Advanced Configuration.
Change to the Local Services tab and double click "Network Access".
Change the type of service to "Allow other devices to acces the Internet/LAN via this computer".

The alternative to this option will allow your device to connect to your computer as part of a LAN, but will not have internet access.

Note the Configure Connection Sharing button: it'll open the configuration screens we've visited before. But some Bluetooth software will not have this button, hence I guided you through the other route .
Now, on your Pocket PC... Tap the Bluetooth icon the the status bar and select Bluetooth Manager.
You'll see your notebook or desktop here, and if it's out of range a question mark (like in the mobile icon in the picture).

Tap the icon corresponding to your computer or notebook.

If the computer does not show here, the devices are not paired! Go back and pair then.
Tap the Actions menu option.
Tap the "Connect to Network Access" option.
If all is ok, you'll see the message "Connected for Network Access" here !
Just start using your favorite programs... ICQ, Pocket Outlook, MSN Messenge, Pocket Internet Explorer .
Yes, visit the Geekzone mobile, or browse the internet from the sofa...

"Hmmm, what's on the movies tonight?"
If you tap the Bluetooth icon in the status bar again...
You'll see the computer or notebook is connected .
To disconnect, simply tap the connection icon in the status bar, and tap the Disconnect button.
And this is the result of disconnecting...
To check your connection from the desktop or notebook, double-click My Bluetooth Places, and open My Device.
The icon in green show which Bluetooth profile is in use right now. Right-click My Network Access, and select Properties to see its current status.
That's it!

Bluetooth connection


First I would need to know the model Bluetooth you have so I could tell you what to do to reset the headset. You can always reset a bluetooth headset to repair it to another device. Normally though to reset a bluetooth headset, you would have to power the Bluetooth device off and then press and hold the device to get it in pairing mode. Usually when in pairing mode the device's light usually stays lit a solid color such as red or purple, or it flashes two different colors simultaneously. At that point you can get your device to find the headset (make sure that you device is bluetooth capable, is on, and is visible to devices) and then pair it. There is always a passcode or pin associated with the headset which creates a secure connection between your device and your bluetooth headset. The default pin code is 0000. Hope you get it working, if it doesn't shoot me a message with the make and model of the bluetooth headset and I can walk you through it.

I can't get my phone to connect with other peoples


I assume you are trying to connect to another phone via Bluetooth. It would help quite a bit to know what kind of phone you are trying to connect to, but here is what you need to have configured on your phone for Bluetooth file transfers:

1. Create a link between your Motorola RAZR Phone and any Bluetooth Accessory 1.0 and up, you need to turn the Bluetooth connection "on". This is how: Go into your phone "settings". > Then select "Connection" > "Bluetooth Link" > "Set Up" > "Power" > "On". The connection will stay on until you turn it off. We recommend to turn it off when not in use to preserve battery life.

2. To connect your RAZR to another Bluetooth hands free kit or headset, go into "Settings" > "Connection" > "Bluetooth Link" > "Handsfree" > (Look for Device). You phone will scan for available devices located within the range of the RAZR, approx 30 feet away. If your cell phone is already connected to a Blue Tooth headset, you must disconnect from it to find other devices. Once you have identified your bluetooth device, highlight its name and click on the "select" button.
3. The Bluetooth device will ask permission to connect. Select "yes" and press the "select" button; after that you will be prompted to insert a PIN code to initiate a secure connection. The PIN code is usually provided by the Bluetooth device manufacturer, not the RAZR (unless you are connecting to another phone). Once the connection is made, you should see the bluetooth logo displayed on the internal screen, while the external screen Bluetooth indicator will flash.

4. You can now "Copy" media files to the phones nearby that you have connected to. Copy is an option while browsing through the files.
