Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Battery is not keeping a charge

Purchased the razr phone 11/25/06. Battery wasn't keeping a charge. Cingular sent me a new phone in March or April 07 (no battery) so we had the same problem-battery wasn't keeping a charge. Called in July they said they would send a new battery but didn't. Warranty expired 11/25/07. Went and got a new battery 12/19/07. The phone is still not keeping a charge. What can it be. My daughter seems to think it is the charger plug that is not connecting to the phone properly. Help!!!!

Re: battery is not keeping a charge

That is a software problem on the is best to reflash the firmware on the phone.
So you should take it in to a mobile repair store to get that done.

Motorola razr V3 turn on and off within 1 minute

Your phone is basically shot. Two past RAZRs that I've owned both died that way, and Cingular warrantied them and gave me new ones. When that happens, you're done for - there's no feasible fix that's worth the cost, considering you can get a new one relatively cheaply.

Motorola RAZR flashes Cingular logo and then disconnects when phone rings

It may be just a faulty battery
I know you said it's straight out of the box but these things can happen.
try cycling your battery.
Step 1 run your bat now until it is low and phone is beeping to recharge
Step 2 Charger your battery for 4hrs with the phone on
Step 3 use it now until it starts to beep again and then repeat step 2.
Batteries are strange different types have different charge characteristics.
these do not like over night charging or being run dead flat they preform better if they are maintained with charge all the time

Phone won't turn on/charge

Kikimenor: Advise. If this is your 3rd RAZR V3, you must encourage Cingular (Now is the new AT&T) to replace your whole unit with another model. A friend of mine exchange his phone 4 times, until Cingular replace it. Motorola had too many problems with RAZR phones and that's why they launch quickly the SLVR L7. They still producing the RAZR, because users love the style and shape of the phone, but reality is that Motorola had several heavy issues with RAZR (Bluetooth, batt, microphone, etc.) If you're paying for an insurance on your unit, encourage them to replace it.

Weird tm's

I too have an unlocked razr from ebay. Great phone but exhibits this same problem. I have found that this tm originates from within the phone itself and is not sent from anyone. In my case I am not charged for this tm becuase it because it was not actually sent to me. It is just a quirk of the phones software. It never shows up on my tm bill detail because it wasn't sent over the network. It originates in the phone

No display screen Razor

I lost my display on 30th april 2007 without a hint. Have been using the phone for nearly 1 1/2 years without any problem. The battery seems to be not so strong, shall try with the battery cleaning etc. Is this a standard problem with the MOTOROLLA V3? Cheers Bevanie

Phone is dead wont take charge

You simply need a new battery. Razr batteries are notorious for loosing life and the entire problem is the chargers you are using. You MUST have one with an IC chip that tells it when to stop charging otherwise watch how long you are charging it. Also when you have a new battery let it fully charge and fully die twice before you start normal charging this helps a lot.
