Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Trouble making & receiving calls

I have an ?unlocked? Motorola V3 ? I have inserted my sim and battery; the phone is fine for sending text messages, but a few seconds into making or receiving a call - the call ends and I?m returned to the main screen. The sim works perfectly in other phones when making and receiving calls, which points to it being a problem with the V3 itself rather than a problem with the sim/network. Can anyone tell me what?s wrong / help me fix it, please?

Re: Trouble making & receiving calls

Whoever unlocked your phone didn't do it right and you'll need to have your firmware reflashed onto the phone. Just have a professional do this cause it is far too easy for someone unexperienced to mess up the phone.

I have a network busy message on a RAZR V3 when trying to make a call. I can send text messages and the sim works fine in another phone. When I call the phone it goes straight to voicemail.

Turn off your phone then take the battery and sim car out for ten seconds replace then reboot your phone. This performs a soft reset. If it still doesn't work back as much stuff up as possible (contacts, pictures, apps, ect.) and perform a hard reset.

Good Luck!

Phone Cannot Send or Receive Calls and Text Messages: A Simple Electronic Glitch

It is frustrating when only your phone cannot send text messages no matter how strong the network signal is. Sometimes you feel nobody cares about or remembers you because nobody calls or texts you but actually there are. Your phone just can't be reached or can't receive text messages. When these happen, turn off the phone; remove the battery and then the SIM card. Insert the SIM card to another phone and try sending text messages; if you still cannot send text messages, remove the SIM card and let it sit off the phone for at least fifteen minutes then insert it gain. You should be able to send text messages after that, but make sure you have credits.

The next thing you should look into is the phone. Make sure network signal is present then insert a known good SIM card in your phone and try sending text messages. Reset the phone if you still cannot send text messages, but back up important files and data, such as contacts, videos, images, and messages, before doing so.

One simple way to "reset" the phone is by removing the battery and letting it sit for at least fifteen minutes. Another way is by restoring the phone settings to factory settings. Simply navigate to settings then phone settings and select "restore to full factory settings" depending on the brand and model of the phone.

This tip is not intended to solve virus or firmware problems but rather to avoid unnecessary visit to the service center and save few bucks from a problem only caused by a simple electronic glitch. Check the network signal strength and your credits before jumping into any conclusion.

I cant get my motorola w510 to send a text message

Hi, issues like this are related to your Sim card (network),
not your Cell Phone . In most cases, regarding the text messages,
the problem is from the Service Operator. Have you tried the Sim card on another phone? If not,
remove the Sim card, insert it on another phone and try sending a message from another mobile to you number,
or you can do it in vise- versa by inserting another Sim card on your mobile.

If you can't receive text messages even when it's inserted on another handset,
then you will need to call the customer care of your Network Operator and tell
them your problem, they will help you fix it immediately.

You can check the message center number, but I don't think
it's very much important in your case, well, if you wanna try,
just check the text message settings and verify that the message
center number (which is currently in use) is the same number which
is on another phone with the same network (the other Sim should be
of the same network in your area). If it's different, make the changes
and save the settings. Also disable the "Receive Via" or similar settings..
(I can't recollect the exact settings as i don't have the same model with
me, please excuse me for this.).

If the same Sim card doesn't receive text messages using another handset,
don't bother to change the settings or to make any changes with it,
first call the customer care and verify from them, you may make mistakes instead of fixing it.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for using fixya.......

Can't send or receive text messages

The problem is not on the phone setting but on the sim card itself. Remove the battery and the sim and let it sit for 5 minutes. After that, insert sim and battery then try sending a text message.
To verify, insert your sim to another phone and use a different sim in your phone.

Do you still have messaging service? Check with customer service, they can re-send the data files to make it work, could also be a bad SIM which carrier will usually replace for free.

Phone doesn't make call

what carrier are you using? If you have SIM cards you can try your sim in another phone to test and see if the phone is working properly or not.
