Re: Software

Hi Socrates,

If you purchase and install the Motorola Phone Tools (, the software will update the firmware in your phone when you connect it and run the update tools. It walks you through this (and makes you do it) when you start the software for the first few times.

This may help with battery life, but also keep in mind new batteries can be found on eBay for less than a dollar. Also, a good tip with any rechargable device is to charge it completely when you first get the battery, and then drain it completely without charging it right after that. This helps to set the "life" of the battery, and will generally increase the lifespan of it significantly.

How to connect phone to desktop

You need a cable, and software. To make it all work:
1. Read the first post completely. It contains links to a zipfile with the files to install the driver, and instructions for installation.
2.Download/buy the PhoneTools or MobileEdit.
Motorola PhoneTools (
MobileEdit (full version): (
I say buy the software so you have a legitimate complaint if something doesn't work as expected.
3.If you want to edit MP3s to suit, then find, download, and install either audacity or Nero (I think that's a $$ product or get portable UltraISO).
4.Then attach the phone, cable, computer and enjoy!
Drivers link above.
Go to this post above, it explains all, for you. Use it to get and install your phone software, and get a cable, eBay, often has sets available, for very little cost, and you get cable and drivers together.

My razor has a blue screen that says bootloader usb init. The only responds I get is when I push the off button, then it goes to the hellomoto screen, and then back to the bootloader screen.

This is a generic problem of Motorola RAZR V3. This is a common problem caused in this phone when you are out of Warrenty and the at the same time there was a software upgrade on the Motorola site. This screen came because the phone was blocked from upgrading due to your out-dated Warrenty ( Because only phones having Warrenty can upgrade in Motorola ). This problem can sometimes be resolved by performing a Motorola Software Upgrade. It can be done using the PC Suite. This problem can't be resolved by yourself, you have to take it to a service center. You go to :
For the motorola software upgrade. You can identify your phone's upgrades, models, etc at : Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Can i upgrade soft in site???

Try going to the following website:
This site has a fairly extensive array of download links for you to be able to download the Motorola v31 software and USB drivers. The site does not directly indicate that it contains "upgrade software," as you suggest, but it does allow you to download the compatible software and USB drivers for your phone. According to the site, Motorola does not have a direct support website, but hopefully this site and its associated download links will be helpful to you. Best of luck!

Motorazr v3i software

These phones do NOT use software,, they use a firmware and it has to be the right one, I can not explain it in a few lines, and one mistake and you brick the phone. That means its useless and motorola
won't fix it because they know that the firmware was messed with.
Same with skins, you must study on what software you need to install the skins and how to do it. I will post a site below that has everything for you to do this, read through everything about your phone then read it again, its not a 5min thing. So good luck,and READ everything.

Just register,any name, and you should be good to go.

Phone hangs and battery

I suggest checking Motorola's Suport link for software updates, like any other electronic device , the firmware is improved a few months after the initial product launch.

This link works for USA carriers...
Try the home site for your specific region.
