Question about Motorola Mobility Moto Q

Cannot use Motorola Q in South Africa

I recently gave a Motorola Q (was under contract with Verizon) to my father who lives in South Africa. Only problem is their phones take SIM cards and he says that phones from the states do not take SIM cards.

Now he is stuck with a top class phone that does not work. I am very disappointed.

Can anyone give me some advice....

Thanks!

The Verizon phone is CDMA Vodaphone is (I think) the only such carrier in South Africa.
Try Howard Forums to see if there is a work around....

Palm centro will not power up


One word: RIDICULOUS. My Centro randomly Hot Synced one night, and never worked again. I went to a Sprint tech 5 times, literally. I had the insurance coverage and they order me a new phone. When I picked up my new phone, the tech turned it on in front of me. I go home, charge it up and NOTHING. Went back down to Sprint tech. Sprint does not cover the battery of the phone, and they gave me my OLD battery with my new phone. The phone worked with the tech's battery though (?). They gave me a new battery, go home charge and...nothing happens again. Went back, they checked my charger, and everything looked fine, except they had no clue what was happening. I still have the phone that I can't sell because it has all my info in it.

In the end, I went to Verizon, and ate the $200 termination fee. I called Sprint and said fix my phone or eat the termination fee, and they gladly waived the term fee!! TRUE STORY. The grass is greener at Verizon. They help you save money on your plans, seriously! You may think this sounds like a Verizon commercial, but after 6 years with Sprint, I wish I made the move earlier, much earlier. Search the internet for loopholes on how to cancel your contract without paying! Good luck!!

boot_c_03.08.00r_mpap Paul Sager from FixYa has posted a solution for this problem previousley (as below). I have tried the Motorola and Verizon sites (tried the store as well) and the software is not available to flash the phone. Do you know of a site that would still have it available? Or can this question be sent to Paul to further comment on it? All I want to do is recover the phone numbers, notes and calandar from the phone via Activesync or Windows. Paul Sager 2335 Solutions July 14, 2010 I can help you with your Motorola Moto Q. What has happened is that the firmware of your phone has become corrupted. When this happens your phone will no longer finish its boot sequence. This is a very common situation with many phones: in fact, much of what I do here at Fixya is explain how people can fix their MP3 players, GPS and phones by reflashing the firmware. The good news is that if you take your phone into your carrier's store, they can reflash it for you right there (if they have a competent tech handy.) If you are comfortable with computers etc, you can also do it yourself. Your computer will communicate with and fix your phone, even though it doesn't seem to recognize it right now - I've seen this many many times. My only warning for you is that if you are going to flash your phone yourself, you need to get the correct firmware from motorola's site for your carrier. I just downloaded the Verizon firmware as an example - Motorola's website has about ten different carrier firmwares for their MotoQ phone. I hope that helps.
