Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

6 Answers

Contact Service Provider

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???

 

 Thanks,

        Mike

    Its a T-Mobile phone and im trying to use my Cingular sim card. I changed everything to cingular (ex: when you flip the razor open you see the cingular dude insted of the T-Mobile logo) and i leave it sit powered on and then it asks for a Subsidy Code. I tried entering 0000000 and it says its wrong then goes back to 'Contact Service Provider' then i let it sit once again and it gives me the prompt to enter a Subsidy code. I tried calling T-Mobile, Cingular and i even tried Motorola with no luck. How do i get the Subsidy code myself?

    Bought this TMobile Razr on Ebay, put my Cingular Sim card in and it asked for a password which the guy at Cingular said was the last owners password so I tried 0000, 1234, 5555, etc until it locked me out and now says Contact Service Provider. I called T-Mobile and the guy there said once you've entered in too many bad passcodes it locks the phone and there is NOTHING I can do and the phone is useless!!!! Please say this aint so!!!! 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.
Thanks

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.

Therestrictioncodecan be got from your old service provider..This restriction code iskeptto prevent someone who stole themobile from using it withanotherprovider...

They will have a security check done with your date of birth etc..to verify whether you are the exact owner of the phone..

After that they will provide you the restriction code to unlock it and use it with another service provider..

It is all free of cost donot pay anyone for this seeing some advertisement over internet . That is all fake ads.

I need an unlock code for a RAZR V3


Contact cingular. If it's a SIM locked contract phone and you fulfilled your minimum contract time, they may provide you with the unlock code for free or a small fee.

Change service providers on Motorola Razr v3xx???


If you have an unlock phone and say for example you're now w. AT&T (cingular). Ofcourse your service will be provided from At&T, however sometimes there's gonna be a possibility that sometimes your service may upper under a different service provider. It's because all service providers sometimes borrows service for their customers from other carriers (roaming partners) if they don't have any coverage in the area, and that's what they call "roaming." However if you're question was say for example .. the phone turns on and it identifies Telstra when you turn the phone on just like when you have an at&t phone and phone identifies at&t when you turn it back on. It's only going to identify that service provider if phone cam from that service provider and unfortunately you can't change it.

T mobile razr v3 need to unlock to AT&T


I had an opposite problem. Cingular to T-mobile. Called cingular and they refused to give me the code. I called T-mobile and since it wasn't their phone they couldn't unlock it, but said they would have been more than happy too if it was. Call T-Mobile 1-800-937-8997, and ask them if they could give you the subsidy code. If they don't you will have to get an unlock program called MotoBlaze, it costs $20, but works! You will also need a mini usb cable for the phone. If all goes well (and will), you than will need to call Cingular and have them link MMS Messaging and Medianet to your phone. Hope this helps.
