Replacement v3 phone 1 wk ago, now won't turn on

Battery was recharged this morning. TMo sent me a replacement for a phone I bought < yr ago. TMo did not sent repl battery and back of phone. Problem originally was: when non-SMS text messages were being received (ie, forwards to my cell # from my Outlook email), original V3 was white screening and shutting off or staying on white screen. TMo sent me replacement, today I received the 1st non SMS msg onto the replacement phone and ever since then, it won't turn back on.

Battery taken out, contacts wiped lightly with alcohol pad, battery replaced.

Hold down the * and # hash key simultaneously then insert the battery while holding them down, then press power ON,
if the phone goes into 'flash' mode u just need to software upgrade it :D

HTC battery wont charge


If the cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

My razr v3 died yesterday. tried all night charging, still dead. no juice to turn on. bought 2 years ago, worth new battery?


Well... I would say no.. Not worth battery.. I had the same thing happen to me where my phone wouldn't charge and we bought a new battery for $50.00 and then we find out my phone is shot.. so I would strongly recommend getting a new phone..

My Razr V3xx won't turn on


I've had two RAZR phones die in the same way. The first time I went into Cingular to see if they could fix it and they told me it was a goner. It was replaced under warranty. I had one die that way a week ago as well, and got that replaced. The first time, I lost every number and address I had in it. This time I had it all saved to the SIM card so I could upload it to the new one. Sad fact is, that phone is most likely done for and the numbers are lost.

Invalid Battery


Totally discharging the battery is the way to go. But what you can also do to use your phone in the meantime is this. Plug your charger into the phone withOUT your battery in. It will tell you "Unable to Charge." When it says this, put the battery in. It might tell you "Invalid Battery" a couple more times, but it did eventually say "Charging Battery" for me. After that, simply turn the phone on and it will return to normal. This is when you drain the battery completely. Once I did that, I did not get the invalid battery error again.

Motorola razr v3-wont turn on


I am having a simuler problem. I bought my Razr V3 the 1st week of Dec of 2004. in less than 3 weeks I started having problems. I live in Western Okla. and Dobbson is my provider. When I bought my V3 Dobbson said that there was no insurance that I could buy to protect it but, that they use a compainy that for $35 will advance exchange a phone while the broken 1 is being fixed. The compainy sent me my new phone back 17-Jan-06. phone worked great! For about 4-6weeks that is. I called the repair compainy again and they told me that my waranty had expired. So I lived with the trouble I was having(check SIM)for almost 1 year. I found that by putting paper between the SIM card wire retainer & SIM the problem was deminished. Around the 1st of 2007 the phone started having more problems. Locking up, screen going blank (white), & turning itself off. I contacted the Dobbson and they gave me a new repair compainy to contact. I sent my Razr to them expecting to receive the phone back in working order. They received my phone on 6 Feb 07 and they sent it back on 7 feb 07 for the reason that my phone was out of warrenty. I went to motorola.com and put in my phones ID # and was told that the warrenty had expired on 2 Feb 07. Later I found out that the 1st and 2nd repair compainy were both the same compainy. The same compainy that had told me my phone was out of warrenty approximently 1 year earlyer. I have sent a letter to Motorola about this problem and that was over 2 weeks ago and havent heard anything from them (motorola). I also called the repair compainy and after not receaving any help from the lady that answered the phone so I ask to speak to the supervisor. I was transfer to the supervisors voice mail, so I left a message. And of course I have not received any communication from that supervisor eather. Don't know what else to do. Anybody haveing simuler problems? What did you do? Thanks Gregg
