Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Weird tm's I recently purchased an unlocked version of this phone from Ebay. My current carrier is Cingular. The only problem I have with the phone is that whenever i check a voicemail message a text message is sent to my phone. The text message doesn't contain any usefull information, just an"@" symbol and another symbol that I do not recognize. These tm's are deducted from my monthly limit and are causing me to go over that limit. I have spoken with Cingular and they tell me they can't help me since it is an unlocked phone. What do I do?

Re: weird tm's

I too have an unlocked razr from ebay. Great phone but exhibits this same problem. I have found that this tm originates from within the phone itself and is not sent from anyone. In my case I am not charged for this tm becuase it because it was not actually sent to me. It is just a quirk of the phones software. It never shows up on my tm bill detail because it wasn't sent over the network. It originates in the phone

Where can I buy a sim card to use while traveling out of Canada to the United States?

First, you need to make sure your phone is SIM unlocked. After unlocking your phone, you can purchase an Cingular (AT&T) SIM card on eBay. Then call 1-800-331-0500. And set up a Go Phone account.

Go Phone is owned by Cingular (AT&T) in the United States. This is a pre-pay cell phone account that uses the Cingular (AT&T) SIM cards. You will have several options as to how you will be billed depending on the service you require. Pre-pay data is also available too, for an extra fee with the Go Phone plan.

See Go Phone Plans:

AT&T uses the 850/1900MHz band (1900 MHz UMTS band for 3G data) for cell phones in the US. Make sure your phone can use this bands.

If you need to SIM unlock your phone, you can do this two different ways.

The first is to contact your service provider and inform them that you need to have your phone SIM unlocked for international travel. Most providers require your account to be in good standing and that you've been their customer for a certain amount of time. Then, it's free.

The second is to purchase an unlock code. These can usually be found on eBay for as little as $2 US.

To search for the unlock code for your phone, on eBay, type in your phone model and the words 'unlock code' and your current service provider. (Example: Samsung BlackJack i607 Unlock Code Rogers) Once purchased, simply follow the instructions sent to you with the code and unlock your phone - then use the Cingular (AT&T) SIM card with the Go Phone pre-pay plan.

Tip: On some phones you must insert a SIM card NOT used by your current service provider when you enter the unlock code.
