Re: slowness of keys when using my razor

First thing is first: try restarting your phone. Turn it all the way off, remove the battery for about 20 seconds, then turn it back on.

If that doesn't help, then Motorola provides a factory reset function that you can try. This will delete all of your contacts, so make sure you have a way to pull them off. (If you have a Mac, and your phone has Bluetooth, try iSync.) Once you've done that, follow these steps:

  1. With the phone on and at the home screen, press the Main Menu softkey
  2. Choose Settings
  3. Choose Initial Setup
  4. Choose Master Reset (near the bottom)
  5. If you haven't changed your password yet, it will be 1234
And away you go.

I bought this phone in the US and now am in India i have unlocked the phone but unfortunately the system has become very slow it takes ten mins to switch on and every button press takes time ......

This phone model isn't a very good phone to begin with, I know from experience. Turning it on will take a while for it to start all the way up, that's normal. The more ringtones/videos/pics/music/texts on it, the slower it gets. If you have many of those try deleting some. If you use this phone for browsing or its mp3 player, that will slow it down a lot as well. Also, there is problems with the Instant Messengers on it, they will make your cell slow, freeze or restart when you use them, so try not to have them on if your cell is already really slow. By the way when your cell first turns on, it will be loading your texts and such; just give it some time, pressing buttons will seem slow and may cause the phone to freeze.

My razor v3 is stuck on the hello screen and do not turn off by pushing the power off button.

Sounds like the firmware has gotten stuck it was a common bug in some of the v3 firmware versions. Pull the battery, replace it and then power on while holding down the # and * keys it will go into bootloader mode. Once on the text bootloader screen you can use flashback (google for it) and flash a more current firmware which will fix the phone.

I am not receiving texts messages on my pink razor from verizion. also when i send text messages to people they dont receive them

when you send a text message out does it actually go out? or is there a beep or anything on your screen that says your request was denied? You may need to call Verizon to have them make sure this feature is enabled by them. They can also tell you the steps to take to adjust the settings so you can use this feature if that is the problem. I have heard of this before, and it was with a Razor, but im sure its fixable.
