    My problem is exactly the same as the other guys. Also, when I play any sound like a ringtone for example, the sound stops working and I have to turn it off and back on again and to get the sound back but it is always very faint. Why and how do I/we fix it?

This was a common defect in this model phone it is probably that the earpiece speaker is going bad.

    No problem if you check depending on where you live you can get the speaker replaced for around $10 I know several shops here in ATL that do them

When switch on with sim card the phone sayscontact service provde

Hi there,

This problem sounds like it is to do with your SIM (Service Identifier Module) card, within your mobile phone handset, either this is because you no longer have this card activated, or you have encountered a problem with your contract. In the event that this is a PAYG (prepaid SIM) then just replace the small SIM card and hopefully you are able to use your phone. If on the otherhand you are using a contract SIM card, then you will need to talk to your service provider directly and sort the problem out. However, you could always change your SIM card anyway, and be donee with the matter.

One word of warning on this, you will probably have to tell everyone you know that you have had to change your mobile phone number, as the unique mobile number is attached to the SIM card as apposed to the phone handset. You could always find a cellphone provider that will allow you to keep your existing number, but, as your SIM card sounds like it is no longer active, the chances of you retaining your existing number are slim to minimal at best.

Now I am also an engineeer that keeps all possibilites of error open for investigation, so in this event, it is best to go to and check out the support pages for your phone and see what is said about this; just in case it is a problem with your handset. Better still, any high-street or downtown mobile phone shop will be able to query the matter for you and advise you in person of your next best approach.

I hope this is the fixya for you, and if there is anything that you have to ask or comment on, feel free to do so and I will respond as soon as humanly possible.

Many thanks for using the Fixya service,

Yours sincerely

Hello. Your mic actually went bad from either liquid damage or a small bump. You need to have the mic either replaced at a motorola service center. Or you can do it yourself. It is quite easy. Just buy the mic from ebay for any old v series motorola phone v300 v400 v500, they are all the same. and just install it yourself. If you dont have a local service center in your area, cant find the part or cant do it yourself, look in my profile and i am sure we can help you out. If you found this helpful, give me a rating!
