Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Multiple Problems, language, spelling, date and time, service

I bought an unlocked "NEW" cell phone from electronics-4u on ebay. I have multiple problems. There is some misspelled words ie. Dialled, Dialling, Centre, Personalise.... Next the phone is set in English, but the Quick Notes are in a foreign language. The phone thinks that it is June 2008 and stays on military time. The voice of a caller is low and the volume is on 7. It also fades in and out and the phone disconnects and shows "No Service" while the phone had a full signal. I previously owned this type of phone and had no issues in this same area with service. Please Help!

    i have the same issue w/ my new unlocked razr, same misspelled words and quicknotes issue. we probably got it from the same people! haha anyway, theres a way to change the time and date, in the setup somewhere, my boyfriend figured it out, so i cant really help you there other than to let you know it is possible. my screen randomly stops working and i found a quickfix on here i think where you squeeze part of the screen, but so far the fix hasnt lasted more than a couple of days each time, but everytime i retry it, it works. i had a razr before also from att and had no such problems. sometimes the network name on the screen changes from ATT to Cingular One DS or somethin like that...not sure if its roaming or what, didnt think that still happened. who knows. as for the quick notes, i just deleted them and ill just deal w/ the random spelling until im due for an upgrade in a few months i guess.



    also: anyone know if theres a way to configure the browser so itll work w/ the att network now?

Jncharles+jdcrutch - with all those problems you should return the phone and have them exchange it.....yo could also have the firmware reflash on the phone....but most times you have to pay for that.....as to the phone fading in and out....sounds like you need a new LCD.....so with all those issue it may cost you more than the cost of a new phone....so just have it replaced.

How can i unlock my sim card's puk code???


Unlocking or open lining your cell phone is a simple taskall you have to do is get the code! There are two ways to get the code tounlock your phone.an0n0mus_2.gif The first and cheapest way is to ASK YOUR CARRIER. Each onehas its own policies in place about the release of the code however they allwill provide it to you at no cost. Typically the requirement is length ofservice with the specified carrier. The second is to PURCHASE YOUR UNLOCK CODE. These can bepurchased from a third party source usually on sites like ebay. Just enter thetype and model of cell phone you have followed by the "unlock code" and searchfor the best price. In either case you will be required to give them your IMEIwhich is your electronic serial number. From your serial number/IMEI a code canbe generated that will allow your phone to function on multiple networks. Hope this helps!

To add another language 1.
Open Regional and Language Options in Control Panel.
2.

Not able to enter phone number under new receipient dia


This usually occurs after an Internet Explorer upgrade. I spent days banging my head against the wall searching for solutions, when I stumbled across this. It fixes the problem every time.

WinFax PRO hangs or shuts down
- during installation
- when prompting for a phone number/CSID
- editing a phonebook entry
- adding/editing an IP address, or setting up Host Sharing

The problem started occuring after installing Internet Explorer 7/8.


SOLUTION:

1. In CONTROL PANEL, Click on REGIONAL AND LANGUAGE OPTIONS

2. Click on the LANGUAGES Tab.

3. Under "TEXT SERVICES AND INPUT LANGUAGES" Click on the DETAILS button.

4. Click the ADVANCED Tab.

5. Under System Configuration, enable the option "Turn off advanced text services" (Put the CHECK mark in this box.)

6. Click OK.

7. Restart the computer and then try WinFax PRO / TalkWorks PRO again. Number entry should now work in WinFax.

8. Now go back to the control panel following the steps above and undo step 5, un-check the option "Turn off advanced text services."


Note

• To open Regional and Language Options, click Start, click Control Panel, click Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options, and then click Regional and Language Options.

• Use this procedure to turn off handwriting recognition, speech recognition, and some accessibility features temporarily. These services can affect performance, and if you are not using them with your current program, you can turn them off temporarily.

• If you are not using a text service at all, you should remove it.

• Turning off text services does not affect multiple languages or keyboards that you have added under Installed services on the Text Services and Input Languages dialog box.

You would be better served to get a new phone. Getting a cell phone wet is almost alway death to the electronics. Even if the phone dry out completely, The problems caused by the damp electronics will cause strange and intermittent problems.
