Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Keyboard works then doesn't

After receiving a weird message, my phone started acting weird. It started making calls, sending messages on the internet and freezing. Then it went asleep for two weeks only allowing the off/on function to work. Two weeks ago it started working fine. I took it apart to see if a cable loosened and found nothing. After two weeks, it received two old messages and started working, all functions. Now after working fine, it stopped and went into like a locked state. Has anyone experienced the problem where it completely stops the phone keypad and then starts after a period of time. It worked without a glitch for several weeks. I have used the phone when keyboard malfunctions as receive only.

Re: keyboard works then doesn't

Take the phone and have it service then if that does not help the issue take it to a mobile service center and have them reflash the keypad with the flash file.

I cannot get the internet to work on my LG Neon for straight talk

Can you still make/receive phone calls and send/receive text messaging without pictures? Do you have enough signal strength (3G or 4G bars at top) to get a good signal without roaming?
When I was in Greenville a while back, I had problems doing anything other than making/receiving phone calls (no internet, no pix). Ends up, AT&T simply had a very weak signal where I was at. I ended up switching to another phone and carrier that had better support in more areas.

I'd recommend calling AT&T cell phone support to also make sure your data (internet) and messaging (text&pix) plans are still active.
Of course, if you can't even make/receive phone calls, you likely have a more basic problem; your phone may have not been validated with AT&T yet.

In either case I'd recommend calling AT&T wireless tech support at 800-331-0500 (type 0 to get a live person) to help troubleshoot the issue with your phone. If you haven't received your phone number yet, you may need to remove the battery to provide them will more detailed info regarding your phone and sim.

Cant send sms but still can call

First make sure you have the SMS feature on your phone. Who's your wireless carrier? Sometimes the wireless carriers have network problems and interfere with sending messages. Also make sure person you are trying to message can also receive messages.You can turn cell off then on again and wait a bit and try again.I go through the same thing every now and then when person I am trying to message doesn't have any minutes on their phone.Just try again in a little while. Good Luck!

My picture messaging isnt working but my internet does

In order for you to send/receive pictures, your MMS must be activated. You use GPRS for internet and MMS for sending/receiving multimedia messages. Call your mobile service provider to activate it.

Just recently I started receiving a text message back when the the person I sent the message to received it. It's weird becaue it's not every text message and not even messages with the same area...

It's called a delivery receipt\confirmation.

Depending on the setting on your phone, your carrier and what carrier you are sending to, you may or may not get them from a successful SMS.

Many phones have settings to turn it off...

4. go to message settings>message center number
5. insert the number which is noted by you and save it
this solves your messaging problem ...

Can receive messages but will not send is new and am just getting started. neon slide out keyboard

Im presuming you are refering to multimedia messages (as opposed to basic text messages)?
Call your carrier / service provider and ask them to send you mms settings via sms.
You will not be able to send any multimedia messages without the correct settings.

My LG acts like it has a virus..

I have run into this problem a few times. So far, the first time I had to cold reboot the phone to factory settings. The second time, I noticed that it seems like a txt message is stuck, so I called the person and had them send a second message to push the first one through. This seem to correct it a bit. I then too out the battery and the sim card and restarted the phone without the sim card. Made sure that the contacts were all there, synced it and then put back the sim card for operation. So far so good.
I also checked, and found out that my sim card is still Cingular, which might also be a problem so I am going to change it for an AT&T one to see if it finalizes the solution.

You need to get the Settings for Internet/Wap and MMS from your Network Service Provider. These settings are usually sent as a text msg. When you receive the msg. choose save or install on your phone. Or get the settings directly from their website. The MMS service doesn’t always work between networks.
