Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

My RAZR V3i don't ring when called up from other Cellular Phones, only from regular phones. And it erases messages very often by itself. And I can't "view" numbers in address book.

    The message stup / Auto cleanup has always been set at "none" so it can't be this then ?

Razr v3i has auto eraze option, which automatically erazes the message, either this option should be turned on.TO turn off this option

Navigate phone menu, select messaging, then scroll down to message inbox dont select it just when its highlighted hit the meny key (right in the middle of exit or select) scroll down to Inbox setup, hit select, go to Auto cleanup hit the select or change button, then scroll all the way down to Custom, hit select, and customize your inbox, same with outbox...

Regarding the razr not ringing for some phones..

Its issue with the firmware problem, Try updating the firmware from the moto website, this should solve your problem..THis issue is callef delay ring lock, which is the common problem with the motorolo RAZR V3i

    If this is the UNLOCKED phone, it wont ring for some callers and you wont able to view the address book,,This states that the phone is not fully unlocked, only certain features such as network is unlocked,,Try taking it to local shop and ask them to unlock fully

My cell can receive call from another cells but none from `fixed phones !!!!

you need to talk to your cell carrier about that, there is nothing in the phone itself that controls whether it can receive calls from landlines or other cell phones.
