Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Model V170 Every time I turn it on it says "reading sim card" then it says "searching for10 or 15 seconds" Why? My previous Nokia that I lost in a snow storm while back east in Feb. never acted like this. It came on immediately for use.

Try to turn it off. remove the battery and the sim card if there is... for about a minute and put it back and try to turn it on. if you are still getting the same error message, better yet to have it check in your nearest Full Service Store so that you won't be getting the same problem everytime you turn it on because it is a hassle... :)

I have a tracphone motorola V170. The flip door broke. Can I buy a new motorola phone not a v170 and transfer the sim card?

Ah, I am a former tracfone customer, and the v170 phone was my first model. :) . Unfortunately no, because all of tracfone's phone models use a different sim card, even if you attempted to replace the sim card with an identical phone it would not work, the phone simply reads, UNREGISTERED SIM CARD. Its tracfone's way of making money, so unfortunately you'll have to put in your contacts all by hand :( which is a major pain in the rear.

I bought a second hand nokia n97 and my sim acrd is with three mobile and so is the phone and when i put my sim card in it tells me sim card not registered... how do i fix this?

Is the SIM card registered? Have you used it in a phone previously? If so, it sounds like the N97 you purchased is 'Blacklisted' and you should contact the seller and request a refund

Can't read sim card

Have you used this SIM card in another phone?

Some cell phones have trouble reading SIM cards that have been used in other phones. (Example: The Samsung Jack may not be able to read a SIM card that has been used in a previous Samsung BlackJack model.) I run in to this problem almost daily with my customers.

Your HTC phone probably has the same problem. To correct it, you'll need to purchase a new SIM card (you can get one on eBay for the least amount of money) and contact your cellular provider. Tell them you have a defective SIM - that you purchased a new SIM card and you need your account switched to the new SIM card.

After you give them your new SIM card number, it will take about 15 seconds and the new SIM will be ready to use in your HTC TyTN.
