Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Half of keypad not working

Left side of keypad doesn't work. I tried turning off, and back on, but no good. I tried taking sim card out, and back in, but no change. The main problem I now have is I cannot unlock my phone because the some of the pin # are keys that dont work. The phone wasn't dropped. Also I noticed that of the external buttons, on the left side the large button still works, but the small one below it doesn't - eg: I can see what ring setting I have, but I can't change it. Thanks

Hello, my phone just stopped making phone calls, I can text without problems, but the phone will not put a call through, incoming or outgoing. It will start dialing and say the call is active but there is...

Hi there,
Though it may sound simple, there are a few tricks to try first.
Turn off your phone, pull out the battery and SIM card. Check your SIM contacts (little gold pieces on the bottom of the card) Are they clean? If not, wipe it off with a soft cloth. Now place the SIM card and battery back in and turn your phone back on.
I worked for AT&T customer service for a good long while and this is the very first thing they will request you to do.
Attempt to make a call - If it still doesn't work, you're going to need to call AT&T customer service as they have tools to push settings and much more. Generally if your phone is acting up it's because you've left it on 24/7 and it just needs a reboot.

My HTC tilt is givin me a "sim card missing message"

There is a possibility that your sim card has gone bad. If you have access to another AT&T phone (or whatever GSM provider you use) try it in that phone and see if it works. If it doesn't work the sim is bad. If it works you may want to try hard resetting your phone. To do a hard reset:
  1. Power the Device Off.
  2. Press and hold the left SOFT KEY and the right SOFT KEY, and at the same time, use the stylus to press the RESET button at the bottom of your device.
  3. Release the stylus, but continue pressing the two SOFT KEY'S until you see the following message on the screen:
    • "This operation will delete all your personal data, and reset all settings to the manufacturer default settings. Press SEND to restore manufacturer defaults, or press any other button to cancel."
  4. Release the two SOFT KEY'S, and then press SEND CALL the button on your device.
Before doing a hard reset, back up any information from the phone that you want to keep as all user data/programs will be lost and the phone will be put back to factory settings.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

Moto v6 keypad problems

I have or should I say I had the same problem with my v6 maxx keypad not working. So I started to look into the flex cable replacement idea. I remove the back cover. Removed the Sim Card, Battery and Memory card fully intending to split the phone and have a look around inside. But then I came to a grinding stop when I saw how small the hex screws are. Gotta get me some of those. While I was there staring at the screws I noticed a small amount of dirt residue inside the back of the phone so figured it wouldn't hurt to give it a spray with CRC Contact Cleaner (it leaves no residue). I left the mobile in the sun to dry for about 3 minutes. Replaced the battery, memory and sim card and now it's working PERFECTLY.
Done. fixed. *** twas just dirt.
