Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Error when first turned on

When first turning on my Razr v3, I get a text message with an error saying the message cannot be sent. Please enter a 10 digit mobile number or valid short code. I did not send anything. How do I find and correct the outbox settings on this phone?

    That may work, I'll try. The phone was bought off of ebay from a company as "new". It is unlocked, but seems to be from T-Mobile. If I use Cingular/att, and the local shop flashes the memory, will it reset it to T-Mobile?

    Thanks. I decided to take it to the shop earlier, figuring either way it would not hurt. They tried a few things, as well as issuing me a new SIM card. Even the new card did not stop it from happening, so I dropped it off at the post office to get sent back. Your help did give me a few more options to try first. THANK YOU !!!!!

The phone probably has some flakey firmware. Have you tried to re-do the over the air programming? *228 with verizon or us cell.
That may fix the problem, or you may have to take it to your local store to have the phone flashed. That resets all the memory to factory fresh. If that doest help let me know ill help all i can!

    it depends on the shop some only flash the basic firmware. This is usually called a flex it changers the basic Programming for example like a computers os. A true flash changes all the software kind of like going from a mac to windows! This can change the startup screen from t-mobile to Cingular. Thats probably what you want done. I'm sorry this is so long but yeah you can flash it to Cingular but it really depends on your local shop. If they cant do it for you let me know, I have the software here at shop!
    Good Luck!

I have a motorola razr v3 and it was asking for a subsidy code then when i found a code and turned the phone back on it says contact service provider and there isnt a way to enter the code does any one...


If one of theses messages appear :

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


It's because you already entered too many wrong codes, you just have to let the phone ON on theses errors messages and after 40 min to 2 hours, the message "Enter Code Special" will appear again !

please try again after some time.

Hope this information helps you
Thank you

I have to jump to the obvious first question here: Have you tried clearing out some data from the phone? Make sure you clean out Sent and Deleted messages, and delete some pictures that maybe didn't turn out so well.

Is the status still the same?

Text messages from phone to computer


dck2's solution worked for me on my razr, I opened the text message, went to "copy all text", went to "Create Message", chose "New Multimedia Message," went to "Paste," and then sent it to my email address, and the entire message went to email, including the date.
