Re: Unable to transfer pictures
Easier way to transfer these to comp is via bluethooth.
get a bluetooth dongle from an electronics shop, load it to your comp, pair phone to comp and then simply send via bluetooth from the phone to the comp.
No messy cables and works with all bluetooth phones ( ie not brand specific )

You will need the Motorola PhoneTools software and USB transfer cable to download pictures from your RAZR V3 and after they are downloaded you can print them from your computer. Click on the link below to view:
Motorola does not make things easy. They conveniently include a mini-USB connector on the outside of the V3 RAZR mobile phone. However, if you use a standard digital camera or other USB to mini-USB cable from your Windows XP based computer – nothing works or happens. Well, you do get the Microsoft Windows Add Hardware wizard, but no drivers can be found. Motorola and the various carriers have even gone as far as disabling the Bluetooth OBEX file transfer service so you are left with a very crippled Bluetooth. The reason for this is that Motorola wants you to spend more money on a couple of options that they have:
Spend money to transfer these files wirelessly, to increase your monthly usage.
Determined not to go either of these routes, I figured there had to be a couple of basic drivers available on the Internet. Two hours later, after scouring Google and wading through the droves of useless advertisements, I was finally able to locate the drivers that would provide what I was looking for. That means that in quick order I could connect my Motorola V3 RAZR to my Windows XP PC, charge the phone and transfer files! However, if this solution is not for you there are other possible solutions incluing ones cheaper than the $59.95 price! To make matters worse, the pages where the drivers were located are poorly organized, littered with unhelpful information, bad text, and had several circular links before you could get exactly what you need. So, in order to make this easy for those who follow after me, here is an easy-to-use guide with links to the drivers you will need. A tutorial, if you will. There will be two section of this “How-to” – the first to enable your computer to charge your phone over USB and the second to enable easy file transfer so you can access your pictures, videos, and more!

In addition, you can subscribe to receive the lastest updates on ONLY the RAZR as they become available below.
I can get pictures off of the original phone. but not messages. I know how to transfer photos to the new phone, but you have to text message them to yourself. obviously, unless you have unlimited pix and data, this will cost you alot on your next bill.
to transfer pictures off of the original phone: purchase Datapilot install it hook your phone to your computer with a USB cable (doesn't have to be a susteen, datapilot, or verizon cable, this can be any cable. transfer your photos.
is that a razr v3 not v3x??well all you have to do is download the motorola drivers and p2ktools, p2k manager or skiman. connect your v3 via cable, install the drivers correctly and then the computer will detect your phone as p2k, if not, open one of the applications that you have downloaded and that should do the work.. then the application will read to your phone files and you can now transfer files from pc to phone and from phone to pc! you can also read the instructions on www.modmymoto.com! thanks and goodluck..
