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?

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: http://bit.ly/cIo8dG


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.

My audiovox smt 5600 can't show start any more if any one can help me restart it with a code pls mail me at temitope.4all@yahoo.com


I assume you mean the phone is asking for a network code or password before the Start Menu is available, ie, phone can be used.

If this is so and it is asking for a network code, then you need a SIM card that matches the carrier the phone was designed for. If it is ATT/Cingular, you can buy a SIM card from the new ATT/Cingular network for $6. It is a pay-as-you-GO phone SIM, but once you have it, you can call ATT to as for a number xfer as well as a standard monthly contract using this SIM.

If it is from the old Blue ATT network, then it cannot be used on ANY carrier unless it is unlocked for use on ALL carriers. This would be noted witht the docs that came with the camera. If nothing says ATT/Cingular, and especially if someithing says ATT without Cingular, then it is probably an old Blue ATT phone. You can buy a BLUE SIM off ebay which will get you to the point of being able to use the phones functions, but it will not work to make calls until you unlock it and replace the BLUE SIM with another current carriers SIM. Sprint will not work either because it is not a GSM ATT type network. Cingular and T-Mobile yes.

Google phones model number and UNLOCK and you will find a way to do it yourself at no charge if you have an XP or earlier PC with a USB port. Vista OS cannot be used to do it with the downloaded unlock software. It is also very hard to find anyone that can do it selling Unlock Codes based on phones IEMI code.

If it is not a network lock message, then it may be the last users personal lock password. In this case, you can hard reset the phone by holding down both right and left softkeys while powering on the phone.

Unlock cingular 8525


I don't think anyone here can give you a sim unlock code. Unless you want to pay for it you can buy from ebay.

http://pof.eslack.org/hermes-unlocker/

Run this unlocker on your phone. Follow the instructions exactly. Don'tunlock the CID unless you planning on installing another custom romother than ATT on it.

Unlock my blackberry 7290


Like you being with T-mobile, I bought a cingular phone off ebay that wasn't unlock. My sims didn't work either. My network just said call Cingular which is now AT&T and they gave me the MEP code to unlock it. Beware, you need to confirm all of your information from your network before they will help you.
