Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Phone going haywire!

My razr is going nuts.. it's sending and deleting text and picture messages on its own and I randomly receive weird text messages that show that they are from ppl in my contact list but just look like %#!*#!@!!&! and in one case, it was in German! Once, I began to dial a number and the phone was online. I take it that this is extraordinarily abnormal behavior. A friend said that there's a remote possibility that it's a virus or perhaps just maybe the phone is short circuiting due to dirt and moisture (cuz it goes through hell). Any ideas?

Re: Phone going haywire!

Sounds like you phone is dying - alzheimer's If the phone has had water leak in it will cause corrosion and the units will go nuts or just not power up anymore.

Can't send or receive PIC messages...

try rebooting your phone 2 to 3 times daily and deleting text and phone calls regularly. this may help your situation. rebooting is taking off battery waiting at least 15 seconds reinstalling battery and powering on... best bet is to delete items then reboot... your problem should go away. unless of course your messages are too large to be sent than that's a totally different issue

Text messaging problem

Delete everything in your inbox and outbox. That solves the problem, I promise. Apparently this is very common with Razrs.

Motorola V3 Razr Sending/Receiving pics in text messages

ATT should have looked to see if the internet service is turned off for that particular phone. If thats the case, you shall not send receive pictures. Thats the only the reason you should not be able to send receive pictures.

Call ATT again and ask them that. Sorry to say you might have got the high school dropout rehab person that day.

Phone Sending MMS Messages as Default

The phone allocates a certain amount of storage for messages on a whole. Even though there may still show space available for text messages, you have hit an invisible "limit" and the phone is now defaulting to MMS messages because there is "room" there. Delete a fair amount of messages and you should be able to start sending regular text's again.
