HOWTO_Connect How to connect Motorola W375 to a Windows computer Introduction¶ This document describes how to connect your Motorola W375 to your computer in order to use it as a modem, or to administer it with Motorola W375 Manager software.
Connecting¶ To connect your motorola W375, follow the next steps:
  • Download and uncompress Motorola W375 Driver from this site.
  • Connect your W375 to your computer with its lid closed.
(You can also connect the device with its lid open, and choose "not" when it asks for permission to connect as an storage device)
  • When Windows asks you for a driver, select Motorola W375 driver folder.
This way, the next time you connect your mobile phone closed, your computer will recognize it as a new communications port and you are ready to use it with Motorola W375 Manager. If you open this "COM" port with a terminal emulation software (i.e Windows Hiperterminal) and type "AT", the mobile phone will respond you with an "OK" string.
Using it with Motorola W375 Manager¶ To use your mobile with Motorola W375 Manager, simply connect your mobile phone closed and then, start Motorola W375 Manager software.
Using it as a modem¶ To use your mobile phone as a modem, install "Standard 19200 Modem" driver and select the communications port associated to your motorola W375.

Motorola W370 will not charge


Motorola provides a USB driver for just charging the W370. I installed it using the installation instructions from the Motorola website, but it just wouldn't work. The USB driver would install but would not activate (error Type 10). The W370 said that it could not charge. I recommend not bothering with this device driver, at least not with Windows XP.

However, I did figure out how to get the W370 charging from a USB port by trial and error. It's a pretty simple process.

1. Before plugging in the USB cable, turn on the W370 and wait for it to fully boot.
2. Connect the phone to the USB port of the computer.
3. When the phone asks "Connect phone as storage Device?", press the phone's left soft key, choosing "YES".
4. The phone will say "Please Wait...... Connecting Phone as Storage Device"
5. Eventually, the phone will display a white screen with the message, "In storage mode, no regular phone activities can be done."
6. Flip the phone closed. The yellow battery indicator will be lit. The phone is charging.

You'll note that the computer will see the W370 as a storage device with around 512 Megabytes of free memory, with empty "picture" and "sound" directories. The W370 appears to be a generic mass storage device to the computer. No special device driver is needed to charge the W370!

Motorola W315


(If you are charging you phone inside your house) First make sure you have power to the receptacle you are using. test this by plugging in a lamp or radio into the receptacle you will be using.

I own the same phone and I have found that the phone has a small rubber cover that goes over the charging port. It's hinged but I found that it has to be removed in order to charge it because the charger can't connect securely with the rubber cover on the phone.

(If your are using a mobile charger) I have observed that my phone has a short in the mobile charger also and changes the ring tone after I charge it. My phone rings 1/2 of the time and I have found that this is a fault of the mobile phone charger. It charges the phone w/o any problem but the connection from the mobile charger is loose. This shorts out something inside the phone and changes my ring tone automatically.

My phone won't turn on/charge?


My husband's w315 is doing the same. This phone is a replacement sent to us because the original w315 I purchased for him had a problem with the screen. (It went blue and never displayed another thing!) When we rec'd this replacement, it worked fine until we had to charge it. They don't send a new battery with the replacements, you have to use the one out of your original phone. Soooooooo, back to the battery/charging problem. We have been to our local Cellular South store, and been given 3 new batteries & 1 new charger. Guess what.......the problem is still there!!!! We have now been instructed to file a warranty claim on this replacement w315 that we rec'd to replace our original w315!!!!!! I've gone to Motorola's web-site for help, but help I did not find. Thus.....here I am! Personally speaking, I'm not a fan of the w315.
