Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Memory Card Issues

I have recently purchased a brand-new Motorola RAZR V3m from Verizon Wireless, it's about a month old now. I purchased a 1 gigabyte memory card for it as well about two weeks later. It was fine for a while, but just yesterday it simultaneously shut off, and then got stuck in the restart process, at the Verizon logo. All the keys were non-responsive, and I took out the battery to restart the phone, which I did several times, all with the same effect of completely freezing, even when I inserted the card when the phone was on and idling. Then I started it without the memory card, and everything was fine. I've placed the card in a friend's Motorola KRZR, and it worked just fine. I deleted all the music while I had access to the files when it was on the KRZR, just in case it was a bad music file. Then I reinserted it into my RAZR, and the problem persisted. Any help with this issue would greatly be appreciated, as both the phone and the card were no small price for dis-function. Thank you.

Re: Memory Card Issues

As other Hard Drives memory card has also it's MBR. Your MMC is seems corrupt in it's file system. Just format it in computer using FAT file system and it will work again OK. Frequently on and off leads it's file system towards corruption. When it will be fine it will co-operat your phone. Don't forget to take back-up before formatting.

try all the defaults the last four digits of the phone number last programmed to the phone then standards defaults for all phones are 9999,1234,4321,0000,1111 if none are successful you will have to hook the phone to a charging station which is at the verizon wireless store I do believe they still have the software if they dont they will need to replace the phone either by upgrade to a verizon phone (two year contract) or activating an old phone you own or bought online elsewhere or got from a friend etc. or insuarnce claim which is fifty bucks and they give you the same model i have to say of all the razors thats the good one so if you do go with insuarnace i wouldnt accept anything else they might throw at you as comparible its not

How do you bring up pics from a memory card from an old phone to a new phone without erasing them (new phone is Motorola razr v3m)

There are two ways to do this, you either transfer the picture from you old phone to your new phone through bluetooth, or just take out the memory card from you old phone and insert it in the new phone.
In some cases, the picture might be to large to display in your motorola, so i will advice you send the picture to you computer and compress it to a reasonable size (maximum 500kb) and put it back in the memory card and it will definitely show.

Unlock a Motorola v3m from t-mobile

RAZR v3m is not compatible with T-Mobile, as it is a CDMA phone, used on services such as Verizon, Sprint, Cricket, etc. The v3m is not a GSM phone and does not have a SIM card, and therefore cannot be used on GSM services such as T-Mobile and AT&T (Cingular).

T-Mobile does have a RAZR v3, but it is not a v3m. The v3m is similar to the v3s, which is also a CDMA phone, but adds a micro SD card to store music and photos on.

Razr v3r

Hi folks - I took apart and totally destroyed my Verizon branded RAZR V3m. There is NO SIM card. Instead, there is a memory chip hard wired to the circuit board. From what I saw, this memory chip is preprogrammed with the phone number and carrier features. The card picture referred to above is for the micro SD card. This card is just for additional memory - for pics, video, and music, dependent on the carrier. I also went to the Motorola web site. They're unlocked RAZR V3's have a SIM slot underneath the battery. Bottom Line? If your RAZR V3 doesn't have a SIM card slot under the battery, forget it. You can not change carriers.

Doesn't read my SanDisk memory card

Here's what you do;
go back to the store, smack the clerk upside the head for giving you bad advice, and trade the 4gb for a 2gb.. (or the razr for another phone). The V3m doesn't support SDHC cards; only SD ones. SD are 2gb and below, while the HC (high capacity) are 4gb and up.
Sucks, doesn't it..

Installing a 2GB PNY Micro SD Card


Only the Sprint version of this phone supports memory cards over 1 Gigabyte. Sorry. But if you have a Sprint phone comment back to me using the comment box below. Thanks.

If you don't have a Sprint phone you need to acquire a 1GB card and use that. Hold on to your 2GB card as it will be usable when you upgrade at the end of your contract period.
