I just bought a v3i off ebay. I have been trying to get the bluetooth to power on so I can transfer files from my old phone, but every time I try it just says bluetooth power failed. Do I need to send the phone back for another?? Thanks! (I have gone to settings>connection>bluetooth link>setup>power:on)

Do you need to connect a bluetooth headset , or do you need to start bluetooth file transfers? In either case, to activate blue tooth on the RAZR V3i go to settings>connections>bluetooth (May appear as "bluetooth link") > hands free> look for device. The Razr will scan for other bluetooth devices. If you need to send files over bluetooth, turn on the blue tooth antenna, and navigate to the files you wish to send. Press the menu button, and press "copy" and select the device you wish to send it to in the devices list. If there is no device, or the device you with to send it to is not in the list, press "look for devices".
I have the same problem with the same phone.
I bought a Zeemote (bluetooth controller) which needs to have a .sis file installed on the phone, but the phone does not recognize the file type. Please help.
As for mefonna's problem, I usually connect my phone to my laptop, go into 'My Computer' to access the phone and just transfer files (drag and drop) across directly to your phone from there. There is also an app you could download called 'Bluetooth File Transfer' (which is free) to transfer files via bluetooth.
according to motorola, this phone has bluetooth and micro SD card slot. if you have computer with bluetooth, then you can pair the computer and phone and simply send music files wirelessly via bluetooth. if you dont have bluetooth, then you can buy a cheap usb bluetooth adapter from ebay and have a bluetooth enabled computer, then follow above step.
if you have SD card slot on your computer then you can get a SD card to micro SD card slot adapter from ebay or elsewhere, where you can simply put music on then card from pc and then transfer the card to the phone.
here is the phone manual.for safety read the whole manual. p.55 for music and p.79 for bluetooth instructions.
How are you copying these Files, USB Cable to the phone, or a card reader?
What operating system are you using?
I/O device problem, disconnect from usb, wait a minute then plug it back in, it might not have installed correctly. (if problems persist with this you might need to acess Device Manager)
Does this phone have Itunes in it? are you attempting to transfer files using I tunes.
I found putting the card into a card reader attached to my PC works best, using MP3s.
Below is assuming you are using a card reader and a PC.
It works like any flash drive.
I would format the memory card
(open your My computer, where you should see all the drives in your PC, you should see the flash drive/ card there, right click on it and a window will pop up, click on quick format )
what file type are you attempting to transfer.
I open the flash drive, then I open my music folder (transfering only MP3s), I drag my files from one to the other.
On mine I currently have jpg files and MP3 files and I can acess this from my phone. ( I have the same phone)
I also have some bluetooth heads phones which work pretty well to.
