Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Voice mail icon

How do I delete my voice mail icon if I do not have a message? Also, in my outbox I have text messages that will not delete. When I press delete it says "operation failed" or "unable to delete locked messages". These messages are not locked. How can I clear my outbox?

    If I send a picture or MMS , it remains iun my outbox- I can no longer open it and when I try to delete it it says "cannot delete a locked message". Like the other posts--there is no option given to ever "lock" and OUTBOX message, so you can't unlock it.

    I bought another RAZR in January. After 3 months it started doing the same thing. The only way to clear it is to to a MASTER CLEAR and lose everything (pictures, contact info, ringtones). I am tired of having to do that every so many weeks. Is there no other option ? I dont want to spend $300 on another one if this will happen with a third Razr. Is Motorola aware of this problem ?

Highlight the message in your inbox and press menu. You should have the option to unlock. Select that. tHen you should be able to delete them.
As far as your voicemail...
Call and leave yourself a message and then delete it. This will cause the voicemail system to send a message to your phone to remove the icon.

I have a flashing mail icon where it shows you have a text what does it mean and how can i fix it

Usually this means the text Inbox/Outbox is full, once you delete them it should go away. You can have 500 text messages total on your reserved memory. Once you reach 500 you get the flashing mail icon and it saves texts to the smartchip (which holds 30 extra texts) and you won't be able to send a normal sms message, it will make you send a mms slide. Delete your messages, and that should fix it. Hope this helps, if you have anymore questions feel free to ask :)

Deleted voice mail in error, is there anyway to retrieve?

  • Start by tapping the "Phone" icon on your iPhone.
  • 2 Next, access your voice mail messages by tapping the "Voicemail" icon.
  • 3 Look at your list of current voice messages. If you have any messages that are eligible for recovery, you'll see an item at the very bottom called "Deleted Messages". Tap on this to access a list of your deleted messages.
  • 4 You should now see a list of deleted voice messages. If you see the message that you want to recover, tap on it and choose "Undelete".
  • 5 Your voice message will now be sent back to the main list of current voice mail messages.
  • 6 Repeat steps 1-5 for "each" message you wish to recover. This may take time!

    Text is stuck in my outbox

    I had this same problem. Deleting and clicking "yes" at the warning screen would not remove the message from my outbox and the message kept resending for days.

    Solution: In the Outbox, click "Menu" > Empty Deleted Items. Click "yes" at the warning. The message should now be gone from your outbox and your text buddy should now be able to regain sanity.

    T-mobile credited back the resent text messages when I called them.

    Voice mail

    If you do not exit voicemail with *, you will get a text message with a couple of symbols. In that case, go to text message menu & delete that message--the icon on the main screen will disappear!

    Please help me with my problem

    What you need to do is go through your outbox and find any messages with a small lock symbol on the icon to the left. This lock symbol is in the lower right hand corner of the message icon on the left. Now when you?ve found any messages with this lock symbol on press the menu button (Its directly above the directional controls.) This brings up a menu with options for the message selected somewhere in there is ?unlock? option press that and your message will be unlocked meaning you can delete it. There may be more than one locked message so check and see if any others have the lock symbol if so unlock it and check for more if not press the menu button whilst in the outbox and select cleanup messages hopefully that should clear the messages. Note that the phone freezing may just be because of shear numbers and lack of capacity. If it does freeze just leave it for a while and hopefully it?ll just return to normal
