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 been bought a Nokia 5230 phone for Christmas but every time i insert the sim card it says 'sim card registration failed' i have tried the sim card in my other orange phone and this works? Do you...


Hi by what you have said ,to me it sounds like the hand set is barred,if the phone was bought from new i would take it back if it is a second user phone they may have reported it has lost, but try another sim in the phone it may not like that sim.
hope this helps.

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

Nokia 7360 wont read sim card


I think there's some problem in your sim card.To confirm it just fit your sim in another mobile & see if it's working.

Phonebook says "try later"


The only thing I've found that helps is to proceed as if direct dialing. Enter (1) digit then end. You can then get to your phone book etc. I've had (2) V170 and had the same issue with both.
