Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

2 Answers

Phone freezes when entering text

I got a new laptop and installed mobile Phone Tools but didn't update it to the version I've been using on my current pc. After sending a long message (successfully) using mPT, disconnected the phone and tried replying to a message - as soon as I tried to enter the first character it hung, nothing worked except removingche battery. Everything else works fine, but entering text, either in calendar or sms, causes the phone to freeze as described. I would GREATLY appreciate any suggestions to fix this. (ps, it's an older V3 without memory card)

    I have the same issue with my V3. When you go to use the address book it doesn't click into it at all but instead takes you back to the main menu.

Well I believe that the phone must still be stuck trying to send that long message. The easiest fix would be to reset the phone and that should clear everything up. You could even use mobile phone tools to back up the information on your phone, master reset it, then if you lost anything restore it back.

Hi,

If your phone freezes, hangs up unexpectedly, vibrates continuously ,touch screen wont respond or in other similar ways doesn't perform as it should, this can often be solved by performing a software update. Software may perform incorrectly for many reasons without there being a fault in the phone. Some problems may be fixed by re-updating your current software, while others may require installing a new software version.


To keep your phone performing at its best, it's a good idea to perform a software update regularly. You might not always notice what an update has done, but it can prevent future problems.


To update or reinstall the software please go to nearest authorized service centre of your mobile make and they will update or reinstall the software as required.


Note: Reinstalling the software will delete all the content in your phone like contacts, calendar entry etc.

Thank You

Are you using the latest version of Motorola Phone Tools v5.2.7?

Go to the following website:
http://motoroladownloads.webs.com

Sign up to enter the site. (It's as easy as 1-2-3)

As a member, you can then download the Motorola Phone Tools v5.0.5 which when installed will automatically update to v5.2.7. Using this version should solve your problem.

**Make sure you download the USB Drivers for Windows, too.

The download for the PC Suite is in .zip format. You'll need to unzip it to a new folder. (You can create a new folder on your desktop)

After unzipping the file to the new folder, double click on it to open > locate the >>
Setup884ac5e.jpg icon and double click on it.

This will install Motorola Phone Tools (PC Suite) on your PC.

Start the Phone Tools Program by double clicking on the icon on your desktop.

Download the Data Cable/Modem drivers and attach your phone to your PC with a USB data cable.
(You may also be able to use Bluetooth)

The PC Suite will include all of your options on the left hand side. <...>

Text messaging freezes the keypad


this type of hanging problem is due to virus attack to ur phone...
due to the virus attack some operating software files have became unstable which are needed for successful operation of the cell...
this virus attack is may be due the transfering of some datas like songs etc from pc or from the other mobiles via bluetooth .....

so i suggest you to give restore factory settings ...
ie in motorola there will option called master reset some thing like this just give it ...
your cell will work correctly ...
but you will be losing the data s which are stored in phone memory ....
b4 contacting technician if problem persists then download the software called p2ktools from net ... and connect your cell to pc it will ask for driver to install then give the location "drv folder" inside p2k tools.. then just go p2k mode then give flex ... by flexing your problem may get solved.....
note: while downloading p2k tools download the old version dont download the new version (new version may be p2k tools3)


if the problem persists then just take your cell to technician ..
the technician will be having a special DKU series cable which are used for resetting the phone,removing codes,reinstalling of softwares etc......
