Question about Motorola Mobility V710

1 Answer


Doe any one know by chance, how to update my V710 on an EXTENDED NETWORK. I am in Kodiak, Alaska, and I bought a phone on Ebay, but it won't let me update, because Verizon Tech. Tells me that I need to be on a Verizon signal to update my PHONE. Does anyone have any ideas on how to go around this???? Thanks

There is a way to do it manually, using a program called PST. Definition is below:

"Motorola Product Support Tool, Phone Support Tools, PST

  • Motorola's Product Support Tool, or sometimes referred to as "Phone Support Tools", is a program used in service centers around the world for basic repair and upgrading of motorola phones. Features include flashing/flexing phones, changing NAM settings, etc. Not available for legal download to the public, only available in Motorola Service Centers. Warez links won't be provided at this site."
Though this program is found available for download many places online, it is illegal for use outside of motorola.

The information on applying the PRL update is HERE.

That link also provides the abbreviated names of other programs from which you can manually program your phone. Manually programming your phone is dangerous, as it is much like a computer and you would be reprogramming parts of it! If you follow the directions very carefully, it will explain exactly what to do.

Unfortunately, this is your only option. I'm sorry the solution wasn't simpler! Though, I do hope that I answered all of your questions and provided the information you needed!

Hi everyone i 've got nokia 6300 doesnt work becuause i try to update it through the internet nd during the updating i disconect the usb cable i dont know what happen so please find me solution for it.


If you want a home remedy, it is really to update the software again - low chance of working. Highest chance of working is of course to send it into Nokia Care. But must remember to back up information first.

Unlocked iphone

Just to give you a run down. When they said it was jail breaked or jail broken this means they ( the place you got it from ) have voided the warranty of the phone and broken the terms and conditions of the contract with apple and have unlocked it to any cellular network ie before you tried to upgrade it on itunes it would of worked with any network ie T Mobile etc

Because it was jail broken by the person at the store you got it from and you tried to update it over itunes , itunes and the firmware update detected this and has consequently locked the iphone so you cant do anything with it unless you apply the latest jail break to it or you go back to the shop and get a refund and buy from somewhere reputable ie an apple store or a cell phone place that is big.

I would suggest getting a refund and getting a normal one as jail breaked phones will always have the issue where everytime itunes releases an update it will re lock it if you try to update it through itunes which is a pain and the amount of stuff you have to do to re apply or get it re unlocked is a nightmare.

Easier to get one that is not unlocked and that way you can upgrade it with piece of mind and know it will update with out any issues.

Motorola A780

the a780 handset only has the o2 network as default.
to have your phone run with another network sim card, you must call your phone company,ie t-mobile,orange,etc and explain to them you need the browser update msg sent to your handset for picture msgs and also ask for the internet browser update msg too.
when you get the browser msgs sent to your phone, open it and press the left green button, i think? it will give the option to update, you press update.

and all done, happy picture msg. andy. :0)

You may just need to update the towers. Depending on your network you can dial something like *611 or something and it will automatically call and update your towers for your phone. You need to check with your carrier to find out what to dial. This may help...
