Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

2 Answers

MMS picture messaging

My provider was CellOne that recently became AT&T. I have a new Razr V3xx phone. I can receive photos from several people using AT&T and Alltel; however, one friend with Alltel when he sends me photos I get a blank white screen with the message "medial.jpeg". The photo does not appear, but I can forward the blank photo page back to him and the pic is there. I talked to customer support, forwarded it to them like I did my friend and the pic was there, but when I forwarded it the same way to the AT&T store rep all he got was a blank page also. Alltel says the problem is not on their end. So far AT&T hasn't figured it out. I figure it is a setting in my phone. Oh yah, my friend's mother is an Alltel customer like he is and she has the same problem as me. Alltel says it's a setting in her phone also. Can you help please???????

His older razr will take pics,and he can text me but they will not open.I'm getting the medial.jpeg. I tried to bluetooth it and it will not transfer,saying it is an unrecognized file format.

I found out from the technicians that they are having this problem with certain models of the Razr phones....I believe my friend's Razr is a generation older than mine but the model escapes me right now. Since they are aware of the problem they are working on it but hard telling how long it will take. They gave me one solution which of course didn't work for me so I have to wait on them. They told me to open the message to the blank page and save it. Then go to where I saved it and I might be able to view it. The solution works for some but not others. By the way this is Snydley58, I had to use a different account cause my password wouldn't work, neither would the one they just forwarded me. Thanks for trying!!!!!

In my opinion, if ALLTEL believes that the issue is a simple setting in your phone, yet they can't tell you where the setting is or how to fix it, then they are KNOWINGLY passing the buck. Most likely some wireless engineer is telling customer service "I dont know why our system is behaving like that... but it isn't my fault"... they too won't take ownership of tech problems.

High tech Engineers can't admit technical problems like parents can't admit they have a rotten kid if they had one. They want to believe there is no problem so badly, they are in denial 24/7... lol.

Unfortunately, Cell Phone carriers since the high tech wave, learned quickly that if they can not fix what THEY BROKE, it is easy to point the finger at software, hardware, or user induced problems so they don't have to address it. I have watched them do it firsthand for many years.

I wish could help more, but with this particular issue you don't have a ton of options. Personally, I would stand in the store I bought it from and refuse to leave until someone can show me that it actually does works like they claim, or compensate you for your loss and their misrepresentation of product and service!

How do I transfer data from my Motorola RAZR V3xx to v9 please?

I can get pictures off of the original phone. but not messages.
I know how to transfer photos to the new phone, but you have to text message them to yourself. obviously, unless you have unlimited pix and data, this will cost you alot on your next bill.

to transfer pictures off of the original phone:
purchase Datapilot
install it
hook your phone to your computer with a USB cable (doesn't have to be a susteen, datapilot, or verizon cable, this can be any cable.
transfer your photos.

MMS messaging on RZR phone

I will need to know your who your service provider is to help you. Yet, I can suggest that you go to your service providers website and go to the support section. Then look for MMS profiles or settings. Many of the providers will send the settings to fix the problem straight to your phone. This also means that you bought an unlocked phone by the way.
