Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Phone won't turn on/charge

Hi everyone, I've had my razr v3 for little over 3 months (I'm in my third phone right now.) IT hasn't caused me problems and I did get it a little wet on the inside from dropping it into a puddle. About a week ago my phone would not charge, turn on, and was constantly turning itself on during the day by itself and off. It would also reset on its own which I know is a common problem. So O took it to cingular and they said it was most likely a battery problem, so they gave me a new battery yesterday. But today the same thing is happening. My phone won't turn on, won't charge, and I don't know if the battery is the problem. Anyone know what is wrong with my phone?

Re: Phone won't turn on/charge

I am having the same problem and I never dropped my razr in a puddle or got it wet at all. If it is the water damage you can tell. There is a little dot sticker under the battery. This sticker is supposed to be white. If it is purple it is water damage. Each color means a different thing so any other color than white means bad news.

Re: Phone won't turn on/charge

Kikimenor: Advise. If this is your 3rd RAZR V3, you must encourage Cingular (Now is the new AT&T) to replace your whole unit with another model. A friend of mine exchange his phone 4 times, until Cingular replace it. Motorola had too many problems with RAZR phones and that's why they launch quickly the SLVR L7. They still producing the RAZR, because users love the style and shape of the phone, but reality is that Motorola had several heavy issues with RAZR (Bluetooth, batt, microphone, etc.) If you're paying for an insurance on your unit, encourage them to replace it.

I believe that the problem is that you got it wet by dropping it in a puddle (Oh Duh!). You need a new phone. Hubby

SOURCE: razr v3 new from ebay unlocked how to remove t-tones to use cingular

flyboy - Your phone was, indeed, unlocked, but they put the T-Mobile software on there and even though they use many of the same frequencies, the phone will have to be "flashed" with Cingular-system compatible software which will replace that. Having Cingular/AT&T send you the new browser settings *might* work, but I have noted that unlocked T-Mobile phones, more often than not, do NOT work on Cingular without the flashing. It's a complicated and potentially problematic process that I don't recommend using unless you are computer/cell-phone savvy. You can find more information here:

SOURCE: Change service providers on Motorola Razr v3xx???

If you have an unlock phone and say for example you're now w. AT&T (cingular). Ofcourse your service will be provided from At&T, however sometimes there's gonna be a possibility that sometimes your service may upper under a different service provider. It's because all service providers sometimes borrows service for their customers from other carriers (roaming partners) if they don't have any coverage in the area, and that's what they call "roaming." However if you're question was say for example .. the phone turns on and it identifies Telstra when you turn the phone on just like when you have an at&t phone and phone identifies at&t when you turn it back on. It's only going to identify that service provider if phone cam from that service provider and unfortunately you can't change it.

SOURCE: i'm trying to unlock the subsidy code on my motorola razr v3?

First, dial on the phone *#06# like you are going to call someone. This should reveal a code called the IMEI. Write it down, then call AT&T either by 611 from the phone or 800.331.0500 and provide them with the IMEI. Then, they will give you the unlocking code and walk you through how to put it in.

Hope this helps. :)

I've got a Motorola RAZR 3 or 4 years old. I just bought a new car with Bluetooth (Ford Sync). How do I get the car to recognize the phone?

In order to make other devices see your motorola mobile phone, you should enable "discovery mode", which is activated in Bluetooth menu of your phone.
Please be aware that this feature is turning on only for 3 minutes, then new devices won't be able to find your cell phone. If 3 minutes is not enough, you can activate this feature again (and again).
This procedure is only required for initial pairing, there is no need to perform this operation every time.
Hope this helps!

My Razr v3 won't turn on and it's only 2 months old. the battery was fully charged in another phone. I've tried holding the on button down, plugging in the charger and replacing the battery but the phone...

Well you seem to have done the hard bit.Either charger or battery you`ve tested.

Just had one thought,How long was the battery out of the phone?

So put the phone in a warm room for 2-3 hrs.As condensation can form in the phone. Firstly remove the battery and check there`s no moisture anywhere.

The last solution I can think of is to try a battery in the phone ,plug the charger in and try charging for 3 hours. It can take time for the graphics to appear.

Well after it not being the battery,charger it will be the phone. So take it back to your retailer and ask for a replacement.

Hope i`ve helped!

I have a RAZR V3 Cellular phone which I did not use for a couple of months. Now I am unable to switch it on (even when charging it). What could be the problem?

Ok, leaving a battery for that length of will run it down.
If you plug in the phone you could see the screen staying blank for up to 30 mins.

If the above did`t help.go to a shop where you can try a new battery.

I hoped i`ve helped.

RAZR V3 - New battery w/full charge drains in 1hr of standby

take out a battery and check if there is any red paper dots on the back of the phone. If you do have a dot that is at least partially red, that means that your phone got wet and it can not be fixed.

Cannot access most Multimedia submenus

I have a similar problem occasionally after using the internet on my phone, I usually take out the battery and place it back in and it usually works. However this is only a temporary solution you more than likely have a software problem.
