    I had the same problem. My phone went dead. and then found out had lost all data on my sim card. The card used to have hundreds of contacts, but somehow they disappeared. The ATT provided said my battery was good but phone bad. I got another razr V3 thru the warranty service. Put my battery in and sim card in and within hours it wasn't working properly. The keypad froze. I can't even turn it off! Something very weird is going on. I have spoken to 3 other people whose Razr's malfunctioned last week. It's like some virus has spread to all of the Razr's!

    The exact same thing happened to me yesterday. One minute, my address book was perfect; the next minute, all the names were gone and only numbers were left. Then, after the next call, all were gone except a very few random numbers

Spules - reflash the mobile that should correct any issues that you maybe having.

fittrainer - have the firmware on the phone reflash take the phone to a mobile service center and have them fix it for you.

(Note:This code will reset your phone to default settings and all your data that is stored on your phones memory will be erased,so store your important data on your memory card before you type this code.)

Contact Number


Hi, You can import phone data from a Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card to the address book application on your BlackBerry smartphone.
Contacts in the address book can be saved to the SIM card individually. You cannot import data from the address book to the SIM card.
To import a single contact, complete the following steps:
1)On the BlackBerry smartphone Home screen, open the Address Book.
2) Display the menu and select SIM Phone Book. The SIM phone book is loaded.
3) Select the contact you want to import, then select Add to Address Book.
4) In the New Address screen, add any additional information.
Import all contacts, complete the following steps:
1) On the BlackBerry smartphone Home screen, open the Address Book.
2) Display the menu and select SIM Phone Book. The SIM phone book is loaded.
3) Display the menu and select Copy All To Address Book.
4) Go back to the Address Book and make sure all the entries are displayed.
After adding information to ddress book you can able to veiw contact list, I hope this information will be helpfull.

No unfortunately not once they have been overwritten they are gone. You may want to get a copy of Motorola Phone tools for future use so you can back the phone up to your PC

I assume that if you cannot remember your password or pin and have got to this point, then you may not have any other options and will lose any contacts, music, pictures and anything that you had saved on your phone, this will not effect your memory card (If you have one inserted, or your SIM card (Which should NOT be inserted during the reset anyway.)

WARNING!!!!!!!! This will reset your phone back to the factory settings.

( Remove the battery and take the sim card out. Power-up the phone, you will see the insert SIM screen. Type in *2767*3855# like you are making a call, press send.
After you enter the code it will take a few seconds ( you should get text saying not to do anything and that it will reset when its done. ) The phone will automatically restart. Shut the phone back off, then put your SIM card back in and power your phone back on. That's it, your done.)

Remember that it WILL DELETE EVERYTHING off of your phone, so i HIGHLY recommend after the reset and for future purposes that you save everything off of your phone and upload ALL your contacts to your SIM or memory card. to do that:
COPY Phone to SIM:
1. open up the address book
2. options
3. OPTION 13: COPY TO SIM ..or.. OPTION 14: MOVE TO SIM
(NOTE: OPTION 13: COPY TO SIM will produce multiple copies, showing PHONE and SIM contacts (both be displayed in your address book list.) To fix this: you will have to open the address book settings, "View Contacts from" : SIM or Phone.)

COPY Phone to Memory Card:
1. open up "My Stuff"
2. options
3. option 4: copy folder
4. Copy to: Memory Card

Hope this helps.

Problem over sim contacts


If you have an unblocked iphone and have put your old sim card in, then your iphone won't read the sim. All phone numbers are stored on the iphone not your sim.
Ive tried a few ways to read it but no success. Sorry.

Everything works but the screen. Need help to recover address book


Yes you can access the address book using a data cable, but why don't you just take out the sim card if the numbers are stored on there? Or are they stored on the phone? I have a v551 with the sme problem that i am trying to fix so I have mine in pieces. If I can fix it I will let you know.
