Question about Motorola Mobility Moto Q

Motorola Q freezes up

Lately, my Q has frozen up when trying to text or e-mail. I will get about 27 characters into the message and the keyboard freezes. In trying to open a new application, it will take the phone an extraordinarily long time to open, or else it will just freeze and not open.

I took it to the Sprint Store, and their solution was to replace the phone...at a $55 cost to me. Has anyone run into this problem, and is there a fix without spending that kind of money?

    My moto q has started doing the same thing. It started about a week ago. When I type in a message it will stop keying letters and just put spaces. When I try to open my texts, contacts, or anything it will freeze. Sometimes I can't even make a call or answer one that is coming in. I don't know what to do about it. I am beginning to hate this phone!!

    My phone will completely freeze now when I try to do anything with it, it started with text messaging now its for everything. I ended up getting a go phone, and i turned on my Q without a SIM card in it, and it works fine, no lag or anything but if I put the SIM card back in to it, it starts freezing again.

Sms messages are changing to mms


In some devices the message type gets converted from SMS text message to MMS multimedia message if the message length exceeds the device-specific setting which is typically 5 - 10 SMS submessages (around 760-1520 characters). If the message is longer, it is converted to MMS to avoid potential issues in handling long text messages in the recipient device. The cost of a SMS message consisting of several concatenated submessages may also be higher than the cost of a single MMS message.
The conversion from SMS text message to MMS multimedia message occurs when the automatic message type is selected in the message options. This is the default mode where the device tries to automatically select the best mode for the message.
The conversion from SMS to MMS can be avoided by selecting Options > Sending options > Message type > Text when in the Text message window writing the message. The message is then always sent as SMS text message and no conversion to MMS occurs.
The maximum number of concatenated SMS submessages can be up to 10 (around 1520 characters). In multimedia mode the message length can be longer.

Texting problem


Hello Giggles,

It could be possible that your memory is full.

Try deleting some old messages and even cleaning out your sent items.

If you need instructions on how to do this, give me a shout.

Freezing up


Have you had your phone updated lately if not call in to your cell phone company and ask them to do a up date on your phone and when they up date your cell phone turn off your cell phone and re-turn it back on.

If this dont work take your battery out leave out for 60 seconds and put battery back in and turn phone off and back on.

Phone freezes when entering text


well I believe that the phone must still be stuck trying to send that long message. The easiest fix would be to reset the phone and that should clear everything up. You could even use mobile phone tools to back up the information on your phone, master reset it, then if you lost anything restore it back.

boot_c_03.08.00r_mpap Paul Sager from FixYa has posted a solution for this problem previousley (as below). I have tried the Motorola and Verizon sites (tried the store as well) and the software is not available to flash the phone. Do you know of a site that would still have it available? Or can this question be sent to Paul to further comment on it? All I want to do is recover the phone numbers, notes and calandar from the phone via Activesync or Windows. Paul Sager 2335 Solutions July 14, 2010 I can help you with your Motorola Moto Q. What has happened is that the firmware of your phone has become corrupted. When this happens your phone will no longer finish its boot sequence. This is a very common situation with many phones: in fact, much of what I do here at Fixya is explain how people can fix their MP3 players, GPS and phones by reflashing the firmware. The good news is that if you take your phone into your carrier's store, they can reflash it for you right there (if they have a competent tech handy.) If you are comfortable with computers etc, you can also do it yourself. Your computer will communicate with and fix your phone, even though it doesn't seem to recognize it right now - I've seen this many many times. My only warning for you is that if you are going to flash your phone yourself, you need to get the correct firmware from motorola's site for your carrier. I just downloaded the Verizon firmware as an example - Motorola's website has about ten different carrier firmwares for their MotoQ phone. I hope that helps.
