Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Need complete recent call log and more days for text message storage

My recent call menus do not show all the calls received. For example, if a person tries to call me twice, the received call listing only displays the last attempt (showing only one call instead of two calls). Also, the text messages delete too quickly. How do I extend the time received and sent text messages are stored in phone?

Re: Need complete recent call log and more days for text...

The call listing only shows one caller by design, to help with clutter on the list. It's a little funky, but if you think about scrolling through pages of the same caller just to find that number to the pizza place again, it makes sense.

If you open Messaging, you can access the settings in the menu there to increase (or set to never delete) text message life.

Please let me know if you get stuck!

Why is my phone not showing my recent text messeges

What OS are you operating?

If you open the Settings app on your iPhone, select Messages, and set the iMessage slider to the off position, you will no longer send or receive iMessages on the iPhone. However, depending on your situation, you may end up not receiving text messages from iPhone users. Additionally, if you have multiple Apple devices, the iMessages will still be delivered to your other devices. This is usually not desirable because you want messages sent to your phone number to be delivered to your iPhone.

When i receive text messages just the number comes up how do i change it to name showing

You need to copy your #s to your phone from your sim card. If your #s are only in your sim card and your preferred storage for your text messages is set to "phone" it's receiving and saving according to that setting. If your preferred storage is set to "phone" it will only tag it with names that are actually saved in your "phone" not sim. *NOTE: You only need to copy to phone the people you want text name tags for. Your incoming calls will not be affected by this.

Hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!

The call log won't list any recent activity,example of this is when i have a missed call, i press the button to find who has called and the log is clear. this has happened the same time as why text...

probably you did a firmware update or installed apps
click on white button - log - options - highlight recent calls - options - settings - change log to 10 days - once it shows 10 days double click on 10 days to ensure that it gets set and then press back (not before that)
switch phone off and then on - it should work - then you can change the log back to 30 days

How do you delete the recent contact log off a samsung sgh a737 ?

To erase the recent recipients list, you must do a master reset of the phone. This will erase all texts, alarms, and any other personal settings you set on the phone, but it will erase your recent recipients. This is the ONLY reliable method I found

MOTORIZR Z3 - Message Memory Issue

One of my few complaints about my Z3 is the low message capacity. I have a 2gb sd card in there...why can't I store more than 500 texts?
But...500 is a lot more than 10, there's definitely a problem here.
I know there's a way to change the default storage location, although I'm not sure it will change the location of texts or not. Here's how to do it:
Go to the main menu and select "Settings". Scroll down to "Phone Status" and select it. Then select "Download Location" and finally, select the memory card.

Now...What concerns me the most is the 4Tb message flood O_o

Deleting the recent log

thank u so much for trying to help. I guess my message wasnt clear enough though. The phone is not storing my "messages", I'm not having a problem with that, I can clear them, no problem. Its the "recent log" under the "add recipients" that does not clear. The "recent log" stores all the numbers you ever text messaged to. I want to clear the #'s that I've text messaged to, not regular calls, thats easy to clear. For some reason this phone stores all the #'s that you text to. If you can figure it out, i'll give u a million dollars!!! just joking of course.
thank u!

It won't let me im!

are you able to access your data services. If you dont have access to your mobile internet IM will fail. IM services use text messaging and wap access. Make sure you have both.
If you do try to log on with IM short codes.
Text in [Yahoo! ID] [password] to 92466. Do not include quote marks, brackets or commas. For example, if your Yahoo! ID is chatsalot77 and your password is 123456, your text should read : in chatsalot77 123456. Leave a space between in, your Yahoo! ID and your password, as illustrated.
  • You will receive a text message confirming that you are logged into Yahoo! Messenger on your mobile device.
  • To log out: Text out to 92466.
  • Alot of the time after this is successful you can log off through the menus in the phone and be able to log on successfully.
