Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Help! stuck in "No Service"

I got this brand new (in-box) Razr V3 phone from an old friend, but I'm not sure where he got it. I took it to my T-Mobile dealer, because when when I put in my SIM card it says "Searching for Network" for about 30 seconds and it can't find any, it just says "No Service". They told me it was unlocked but they couldn't figure out why it wasn't working. They had me talk to technical support for about a 45 minutes. They couldn't figure it out either. They had me call Motorola where they told me the phone was manufactured for somewhere in Europe (Germany maybe), and that it was out of warranty. They had me do a master reset but it didn't do anything. They suggested I go to their website and update the software. I went through all the trouble and did it all, but the Razr still can't find the network.
PLEASE HELP!!!!!!! What else can I do? ANY IDEAS?
Motorola's software says this about the phone:
IMEI Number: 3594180XXXXXXXX
Model Number: RAZR V3
Operator: andere Netzwerkbetreiber - autre opã©rateur CH

Unlock razr v3

Which Country Network Lock now?
You can get the Unlock code and Unlock Instructions at
follow the Instructions and Unlock it step by step:
Motorola RAZR V3 Unlocking Instructions Warning : Do not enter any wrong unlock codes on your Motorola RAZR V3 mobile phones. If you enter over a certain amount of wrong unlock codes on your Motorola RAZR V3 mobile phone, your phone may get hard locked and sometimes become unusable.
1 - Switch ON your Motorola RAZR V3 with a NOT ACCEPTED SIM Card,
2 - Phone will display "Enter Special Code",
3 - You can now enter the Unlock Code.

NOT ACCEPTED: We mean, to use a sim card from a network other than the network your Motorola RAZR V3 is locked to.

WARNING: If one of theses messages appear :

- "Contact Service Provider"
- "Tampert Alter"
- "Wait before enter special Code"
- "Contact Service'

It's because you or somebody already entered too many wrong codes, you just have to leave the Motorola RAZR V3 ON with the errors message and after 40 minutes to 2 hours the message "Enter Code Special" will appear again!

I need a subsidy code for a Motorola V3 razr

which one is locked? the phone or your sim?

your friend's mobile phone might be sim-locked into a particular network only. T-mobile phones uses only sims that are T-mobile. If you inserted an ATT sim into a T-mobile phone, it is expected to react that way. That is also why, ATT told you to call T Mobile because it was not the responsibility of ATT if their sim won't work into a T-mobile phone (if that was really the case).

that was just a hint. the initial remedy would be is, insert a T-mobile sim into the T-mobile phone first and also confirm to your friend if it was a sim-locked phone.

subsidy codes are exclusively from the company. it's very, very, very (nth power) seldom that one can be provided online (w/c is safe and reliable). so please hope that either my suggestion would work or they will still provide the subsidy code because the case might be beyond the warranty requirements.

try changing the battery.....if that does not help you may have to get the mobile service or flash from a mobile tech....but if the phone is 3days old, just take it back to the provider and have them give you a new one.
