Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Call fails. SMS failure to send. Status 254.

Hi there, this was a perfectly good phone and it refuses to call numbers, giving a "call failed" message. When sending a text, it fails and then tries to resend. But then intermitently sends it. It also sometimes goes to "Emergency Only" instead of displaying my phone company's name. Where would I even begin to look for repairs?

I had the same problem. All you need to do is reset the phone settings :) Then it's back to normal.

You cannot send messages because the message centre number stored in your mobile may be wrong.

Please enter the correct message centre number. To get the correct message centre number please call your service provider and they will provide you the number.
