Question about Cell Phones
I have a Motorola F3, brand new, but si far I've been unable to charge the battery - no life signs at all !!
Can anyone help with this ??
SOURCE: Motorola W370 will not charge
Motorola provides a USB driver for just charging the W370. I installed it using the installation instructions from the Motorola website, but it just wouldn't work. The USB driver would install but would not activate (error Type 10). The W370 said that it could not charge. I recommend not bothering with this device driver, at least not with Windows XP.
However, I did figure out how to get the W370 charging from a USB port by trial and error. It's a pretty simple process.
1. Before plugging in the USB cable, turn on the W370 and wait for it to fully boot.
2. Connect the phone to the USB port of the computer.
3. When the phone asks "Connect phone as storage Device?", press the phone's left soft key, choosing "YES".
4. The phone will say "Please Wait...... Connecting Phone as Storage Device"
5. Eventually, the phone will display a white screen with the message, "In storage mode, no regular phone activities can be done."
6. Flip the phone closed. The yellow battery indicator will be lit. The phone is charging.
You'll note that the computer will see the W370 as a storage device with around 512 Megabytes of free memory, with empty "picture" and "sound" directories. The W370 appears to be a generic mass storage device to the computer. No special device driver is needed to charge the W370!

SOURCE: "unable to charge"
I had an old Motorola V3, which used to show me that error. It could result if the charger is not firmly connected to the phone. To diagnose this, try borrowing someone's moto charger. It's also possible that battery contacts could have dust. Try dusting them off so that they're nice and shinny as usual. Finally, try removing the battery for a few minutes, reinsert and charge, leave the phone off when you charge. The phone usually starts working after the regimen. If the problem persists, you'd know which method worked and what failed, so you can press for a warranty. Cheers

Check the contacts between phone and battery,
if necessary align or clean. Are
you using original Motorola charger? This solved my problem; I was trying to charge
it with one of those "universal" chargers.
Hope this helps!

Clean the charging port, remove battery, clean contacts between battery and phone, also be sure to use an original Motorola charger instead of one of those "universal" type chargers.

5: picture download phone to computer:I don't know anything about a disk, but I got my pic off my phone with a usb cable and my computer recognized it. I run with Media xp. Now on my older PC I just sent the pic to my t-mobile account and them sent them to my photo ablum. It's a drawn out process and take more time then the cd, but like I said I never got a disk with my phone neither. I hope this helped
REINSTALL SOFTWARE:Dear customer,
Try to use the code *#7370# to do a master reset on ur N70, this usuauly works. Or else try formating the phone , press (send + * + 3) keys at same time then press power key until power on and keep pressing the three keys for 40sec. If the above given solutions dont have the desired effect then you have to search for cracked phoinex software and flash your phone with USB cable if still the same then it is hardware problem ( either faulty OMAP or faulty RAM
