Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3x Cellular Phone

1 Answer

All I can find are the unlocked phones which my AT&T provider says won't work unless it is locked. I need either to find out how to lock it or to find a locked AT&T phone. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello

So let me see if I understand correctly, you already have service with AT&T and you are trying to replace a motorola razor phone or find a replacement but all you can find are unlocked phones online ?

If this is the case why don't you buy one direct from your service providers store. They would be locked specifically for your provider.Try AT&T's online store for instance. Also you can try narrowing your search for new phones and not used or unlocked phones.

Post back if you need any further assistance, thank you for choosing Fixya!

I didn't solve my problem, " unlock N8"?!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Your phone is under network lock or security lock?
If, your phone is locked to security lock, dial 1234 or 0000.
And, if your phone is lock to network use unlock code.
Get the unlock code from this site Simpleunlocking.com
Here, you need to specify country & network provider it is locked now.
Then, get the unlock code. & unlock it.

Hi,

My name is Ben and I'm your guru, i.e., mentor, an influential teacher or popular expert: a management guru. - origin from Sanskrit, 'weighty, grave'.for today. WOW!

As you evaluate my advise and suggestions, there are a few things you must keep in mind:

• I did not diagnose your problem and am therefore only able to evaluate what you tell me. For example, if you ask me a fuse location, that doesn't mean that I can tell you the reason why the fuse blew.
• A thorough diagnostic approach involves the use of technical equipment, xuch as voltage meters. scanning equipment and other sophisticated devices.
• Lastly, fixing one problem can very easily reveal a problem with something that you might consider unrelated. If that happens, you might want to view me as being incompetent.

Subject: Unlock a cell phone or finding a new PUK code

Customer's exact description: i have a nokia 7373 and have entered a wrong security code too many times now even if i do the right code it says security code error.

Evaluation: The customer needs either to unlock the phone or the SIM card,

My Solution: Provide information for a locked phone and (2) a locked SIM card

First; A locked phone, If your phone is unlocked proceed to the PUK section that follows the locked phone discussion.

Discussion: There are two cell phone technologies that are used by the majority of the world's mobile phone service providers: Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) and Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA). If you have a CDMA phone, then your phone is not unlockable. End of story. However, if your phone operates on a GSM network, then it might be unlockable.

What's the difference? GSM phones use subscriber identity module (SIM) cards. A SIM card is a small card that's inserted into the phone. It contains all your contacts and settings, and it's linked to your account. You can take the SIM card out, put it into another phone, and if someone calls your number, the new phone will ring. You can also put a different SIM card in your unlocked phone, and your phone will then work with whatever phone number and account is linked to that card. CDMA phones have no SIM cards and must be authenticated by the service provider, which makes unlocking a phone impossible.

If a phone is locked, the service provider has installed some software on the phone that ties the subscriber ID number on the SIM card to the serial number of that particular phone. If the SIM card and phone serial number don't match, the phone simply won't work. The SIM card won't work in other phones, and the phone won't work with other SIM cards.

If you live in North America, you can usually determine whether your phone is GSM or CDMA based on the service provider you use. T-Mobile and AT&T use GSM, while Verizon and Sprint use CDMA. In Europe, almost all phones are GSM.

How can you tell if your phone is already unlocked? In Europe, unlocked phones are more common. In fact, many countries have cell phone portability laws that make it illegal for a company to lock a phone to a specific account (though these laws seem to change frequently). In North America, fewer phones are sold unlocked. If you received a phone for free or at a very low price when you signed a contract for your cell phone service, your phone is almost certainly locked.

There's an easy way to find out for sure: Find a friend whose phone is known to be unlocked. Have your friend place his or her SIM card in your phone, and then call your friend's number. If your phone rings, you know your phone is unlocked. If your phone simply generates an error message, then it's locked.

Problem areas: The question most honest people ask me is, "Is it legal to unlock a cell phone?" In Europe, the answer is generally yes. Though laws differ from country to country, they tend to favor consumers over companies. In the United States, the answer is also yes. The U.S. Copyright Office issues rulings every three years, and in 2006, they declared that unlocking a cell phone does not infringe on the copyright of the phone manufacturer or service provider, and therefore isn't prohibited.
In order to provide the customer with precise information, one must have the following information.

• Phone description including the make and model.
• The name of the subscriber's carrier (aka service provider).
• Information as to whether it is the phone or the SIM that is locked.


Possible solutions: The process of unlocking a phone is actually quite simple, and doesn't require any technical knowledge. There are three accepted methods for accomplishing the unlocking. For some phones, you just have to enter a numeric code into the phone. For a fee, some service providers will even give you the proper unlock code for your phone. There are also third party companies that provide cell phone unlock codes for a fee that ranges from $5 to about $25, depending on the model of phone you have.

There is a very high probability that your carrier will unlock your phone at one of its retail outlets. Manufacturers provide their customers (AT&T, Verizon, Nextel, etc.) with the unlock codes. However, if you - the ultimate consumer - write to Sony-Ericsson, LG, Motorola, Nokia, etc. and request an unlock code, that request will be refused. However, be forewarned that some service providers will charge you a fee for unlocking your phone.

Secondly, you can unlock your phone on your own. For some phones, you just have to enter a numeric code into the phone. I don't hand out these numbers because they vary from company-to-company and usually don't work, But if you have the patience, there are several instructional videos on www.youtube.com that provide some useful data. However, I don't recommend them because most of these videos are trying to sell you something.

Lastly, for a fee, there are third party companies that provide cell phone unlock codes at a cost that ranges from $5 to about $25, depending on the model of phone you have. The only company that I recommend is Freedom Unlock and the fee for most popular phones is about Five (5.00) USD. I have no interest in this company and my only contact has been in researching their website.

PUK Codes

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from AT&T to unlock your SIM card.

Since I don't know the name of you carrier, I'm using AT&T as an example. Most carriers use the same methodology though the wording may be different.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T in one of these ways:

• Log in to myAT&T online
• Use our Technical Support Chat.
• Contact Customer Care


To get your phone's PUK code online:

? Log in to myAT&T.
? From the myAT&T tab at the top of the page, hover over the Wireless link and select Phone/Device under the My Wireless Service heading.
? From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under the My Make & Model heading.
? The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code and will give you instructions for unblocking your SIM Card.



Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Note: If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."

This is probably more than you wanted to know, but hopefully it solved your problem,

I need to use my phone in another country with their simcard, but It says wrong card what shall i do?


Unless your SIM is activated for international roaming it will not be active . So it is best to get this done with your service provider. Also unless the phone is an unlocked phone it will not be active with another SIM.
If so the phone has to be unlocked so that any SIM works.

How can I unlock a phone that has been locked by a company?


Hi,

Let me give you a little background and then some solutions. This is generic because I don't know your carrier. I'm using ATT as an example.

Phones are naturally unlocked, but a service provider might lock them

When originally manufactured, all GSM cell phones are unlocked. That is, they can be used with any SIM from any cellphone service provider - always assuming, of course, that the cellphone service provider has compatible GSM service on the same frequency bands that the phone can operate on.

Most cell phone service providers electronically 'lock' the phone so that it can only be used with their service. There are obvious reasons why they choose to do this - in particular, to force you to pay what are usually very high roaming charges when you take your phone out of their network and use it elsewhere in the world.

Fortunately, this locking is reversible. With some phones, it is possible to simply enter an unlocking password code into the phone and it is immediately then unlocked. Other phones need to be connected up to a special unlocking data terminal.

Your phone has to be unlocked by the carrier. LG, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, Nokia and most of their ilk, will not give consumers the unlock codes but don't despair.

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your carrier. For example, if you have AT&T to unlock your SIM card, you can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T by:

● logging in to your my wireless Account online
● using their Technical Support Chat
● calling Customer Care at 1-800-331-0500

To get your phone's PUK code online from ATT:

● Log in to your my wireless Account.
● Select My Services under My Account.
● From the My Services screen, select My Phone/Device.
● Select Unblock SIM Card.
● The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code.


Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Note: If you enter the wrong ATT PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator."

There are three other ways to unlock a phone:

● The carrier will unlock the phone for you at one of its retail outlets;
● You can do it yourself by clicking on this link Free Unlock Codes ,
● Pay $3.89 at the following website: www.theunlockshack.com/.

I trust that this is helpful and solves your problem. All the best

Need to unlock LG CE110 I accidentally locked mine


Hello Sir, What is locked Sir ?? The network or the Phone. If the Phone is locked then you need to get the phone to a Service Center where they will get the Phone's software upgraded which will get the code to default. They will enter the code and it is unlocked !! If it is a Network lock then you need to contact the service provider, they will get the Network unlocked.
Please reply me if you have any more problems.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.
