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.

try taking SIM and battery out placing it back in an powering on.

If you try this and it still does not work you may need a new SIM card. Take it to a local dealer they should have a new SIM they will put your number on it and you will be back in business.

If the new SIM doesn't not work you will now know it is your Phone, which means time for a new one.

good luck

The sim card goes in the other way. The cut should be on the bottom left facing up. Try it and see if it works.

My LG Vu says Emergency download after I dropped it in water. And it won't do anything but go to that screen fell into the toilet and when i tried turning it on i saays Emergency Download

Take out the battery....then put it back in. Do not try to turn on the phone yet. Next plug the phone up to charge. Wait until the charging screen appears and then power the phone. Worked for me.....good luck.

No SIM card installed

I too have had the "no sim card installed message. What has always worked for me is to go into settings and put the phone into airplane mode for about ten seconds and then switch back to regular mode which causes the phone to reconnect to the ATT network. The sim message goes away. This is also a good fix for when your phone isn't connecting to 3G or showing an "E" instead of 3G.

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.
