Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3c Cellular Phone

Verizon VC3 shut itself off

I was helping a friend do some home remodeling, and I was sweating profusely. My Verizon VC3 was in the pocket of my shorts. I wanted to make a call and noticed that it had shut itself off. Now when I try to turn it on all I get is the Verizon wireless banner that usually shows up on power up. It will shut itself off again after a few minutes, unless it's plugged in. When it is plugged in it gives no indication that it is charging or that any other activity is going on. I removed the battery and left it overnight hoping for a resolution, but to no avail. I put the battery from my wife's VC3 in mine, and nothing changed. I put mine in hers and got a message that the date/time needed to be set.

Re: Verizon VC3 shut itself off

The date/time needed to be set is normal especially if it took you a longer time to put a battery back again. if you are having problems with the phone that is not charging and it's not with your charger or with the battery, ou are having problems with the phone. However, if this had been in contact with liquid like water or sweat, this can cause liquid damage on the phone. check if the the tiny round sticker at the back of the phone if it is white.

I have (2) problems: 1.. Randomly shuts itself off (extremely frustrating) 2.. Front Screen goes to solid white, although inside screen works fine. Thanks

hello,it could be as a result of bad battery that your mobile phone shut itself off,so you will need to get a new battery,it's a flex problem you are encountering with your screen,so you will need to get a new flex,after that is fixed you will have your phone working as supposed.

take care.

How do i insert my sim card into the pocket pc xv6700 phone

The XV6700 phone is on the verizon network, thus uses CDMA technologies,

Unlike CDMA, GSM uses SIM cards to identify the handset.

In short: the pocket pc XV6700 cant accept a SIM card, sorry!

My env3 always shuts off for no reason

It is a common problem with them.Every couple days,remove the battery for a few min.and let the phone reset itself.You also should shut the phone off a couple nites a week.And remember not to over charge it.It is never a good idea to leave them on the charger for more than a few hours at a time.I was having the same problem with mine,And now it seems to be fine

Does not get past the Verizon screen when turning the phone on.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the only thing i would say try is taking the battery out for about 30 seconds. putting it back in and trying again. if it does not turn on then i'm afraid the phone will not come back. It's a somewhat rare problem but does happen.

Unfortunately all information is gone unless you had downloaded backup assistant.
