Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3m Cellular Phone
My motorola razr says no service in an area that does. Have a friend with the same cell provider but gets 4 bars in the same area. V3m does intermittently is not able to get service. Sometimes it works fine. sometimes not. I am in areas where I know there is service. I think I have traced it to something to do with the battery connection or the battery cover. there seem to be contacts between the phone and battery cover. The cover is worn at one of these spots. Could this be the issue.
Try typing *228, and send. Select option 2 -- updating your roaming capibilities. The phone will go through a sequence of unlocking and reprogramming...DO NOT SHUT THE PHONE OFF DURING THIS PROCESS. It only takes a couple of minutes...or less...and will notify you that the phone was successfully updated. I had a similar problem a couple of years ago, and this seemed to solve it. Good luck!! I'm not sure that a battery connection problem will cause you to not have service in a solid coverage area. Did you possibly drop the phone? If so, maybe the antenna connection inside the phone is loose, and you are only getting a muted signal. There are phone repair shops that should be able to fix this, if THIS is the case. Your service provider will probably want to sell you a new phone, so they will doubtfully be of any help.

If it were me i would skillfully place some tin foil at the worn spot just small enough so it fits that tiny worn area

If the external antenna port was damaged at all the same type of thing will happen only I got no signal at all.
