  • Select Menu, Settings, and then Security.
  • Enter your lock code. (if you didn't change this when you got it it's the last four digits of your phone number ;) )
  • The Security menu is displayed.
  • Select Reset/Restore Phone.

    It's different then most phones, so it took awhile to find this out. You have to enter your code twice before it works but thank god it works: )
Warning: This will change your phone back to factory settings. Your phone will still be active, however, all personal settings will be lost.

SOURCE: how to set picture to caller id for motorola rival

Go to the person's contact you wish to set a picture to. Select that contact and then select edit. Scroll down to where it says picture. Click Set ( left soft key) then it will give you a choice on taking it from your pictures, downloading a pic or some other choices. Choose the one you want and save. Your picture should come up when that person calls you or you call that person. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: my motorola rival A455 cell phone got droped in water

try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

SOURCE: I need to know how

Hello reapermc303,
Yes the A455 can be unlocked with software. The software you need is called 'Mototools 6.2' and although I do not see the A455 listed I have contacted them and they assure me that this phone can be unlocked with Mototools 6.2 as the firmware is the same as the A630 which the software also unlocks.

I have used this software and it does genuinely work 100%.

A455 has locked, how to unlock it and reset to factory settings. I don't have any previous information


Just open the keypad, or hit the center button twice, that should do it. If not then there is something wrong.

To reset it, go to menu > setting & tools > phone settings > security > restore phone.

Motorola Rival A455 phone restarts whenever I send a text message


This is all I know... Something went wrong when downloading the Firmware onto the Rival, it is a factory defect. Fortunately there is a fix (as far as I know).
Doing this will loose ALL MEMORY including contacts list and inbox.

1 Press Menu
2 Select Settings
3 Select Phone
4 Select Security
5 Enter Unlock Code & Press Done (Usually the last 4 digits of your phone number)
6 Scroll to Restore Phone and press OK
7 Confirm by selecting Yes
8 When prompted Enter 4 digit unlock code and press Done

PS do me a favor, let me know how this works out for you??

Thank you for contacting Fixya!

Problem: Transferring Music from Computer to A455 Rival Phone

Solution:

You can use the Micro SD card to transfer music and other media from your PC to the phone, and vice versa. The microSD card must be inserted for you to be able to view the storage card menus.

The A455 does support the MicroSDHC card.
The Rival can support up to an 8 GB Micro SD card.
