Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3
Okay, I have this V3 Razr that the default provider was T-Mobile. I flashed/flexed as Cingular. It still continues to say 'Contact Service Provider'. It asked for a Subsitity code of some sort and i entered it in wrong a bunch of times and thats when it went to the Contact Service Provider screen. The only buttons i can press is 1 and 9 for emergency calls only. Any Help???
If you have the mini usb i may have the tools soft for it.
But it will only work on Bootloader version 8.26 and below.
To find out what boot load version is your phone, just press # * @ the same time while pressing the power button.
If your bootload is the one above or below the email me for the software. but only if you have the mini usb cable.
The software will flash the the phone unlock it and then you can put what ever carrier software you may want.

I called cingular for my unlock code and after 2 days they emailed it to me. i now use the motorola slvr i had with cingular with t mobile. phone companies HAVE to give up the code. its the law. assuming you dont owe them any money. they ask for imei # located in back of phone. saved me from buying another phone/extending contract.

An even easier solution. It costs $20, like Frakmann says, but you don't have to send it in. You will need a Mini usb cable for the razr, if you have a digital camera, you probably have the cable. Download Motoblazer, it will tell you if it can successfully unlock the phone, than just pay the $20 via credit or debit and boom! The phone is unlocked. It works, Cingular refused to give me the code.
FIRST AND FORMOST! Call T-mobile first, they might give you the code (unlike Cingular, it's like pulling teeth)

You need the subsidy code, not the PUK. The PUK is something totally different.
What you need is a sim unlock code which is another name for subsidy code. This will allow you to use the tmobile phone on any network. The problem is that tmobile is the only one that can really get this code and you have to be a customer to get it.
You can have it unlocked online through a service that specializes in this, but you will have to mail the phone in and they will unlock it with a cable and computer. It usually costs about 20 bucks or more for the mailing in.
The BEST way is to find a local authorized retailer for cingular that will unlock it for you. Most will do it for free if you sign a contract for cingular through them. They want your business and will do it to get your business.
I had to get my tmobile phone unlocked before i switched to cingular and tmobile did it for me. I told them that I was going overseas and wanted to use a simcard from europe for cheaper rates. They unlocked both of my razr's in about 3 days by emailing me the subsidy code for both phones.
