It sounds like you will need to take the phone in for professional servicing or possibly replacement. Here are a few suggestions to try before doing that. First, read the manual for proper battery maintenance and follow it strictly. Allow the battery to fully discharge, then fully recharge it (but do not overcharge it) then run it all the way down. Then repeat that process. This is called "resetting the battery".
Second, You may try replacing the battery (it is always good to have a second one for the Q anyway).
If all else fails, try a master reset. The Q is vulnerable to certain viruses just like any other computer. Caution: Completing a Master Reset will cause you to lose all of your personal information and additions to your phone. You can complete a master reset by clicking on Start, then System Tools, then click on the "Master Reset" icon.

When I send text messages I can't see the words I'm typing, it wont let me text certain people, it wont stop sending messages to other people, and it keeps freezing.


I had the same problem, and it will only get worse. It's a simple fix though...just follow these steps. I actually found this solution on this exact website =] so if you can't fully understand how I explain it, ou can find other posts as well.

Settings >> Text Input Settings >> Uncheck box next to "Suggest Words When Typing."

Simple enough, restart the phone and start texting, It should be fine. Hope this helps!!

Can't send or receive text messages anymore!


Pull the battery out while the phone is still on, wait 30 sec. to 1 min and then put it back in, should solve the problem.

*Mine has done the same thing 3 times so far, just keep pulling the battery out and put it back in until they figure out what the issue is and make a fix.*

Nokia e50 wont notify me when i recieve a new text message


Hello there! thanks for using Fixya.com!

Try the following instructions, to personalize your Nokia E50!
Profiles
Warning: In the offline profile you cannot make or receive any calls, or use other features that require network
coverage. Calls still may be possible to the official emergency number programmed into your device. To make calls,
you must first activate the phone function by changing profiles. If the device has been locked, enter the lock code.

Select Menu > Tools > Profiles.
You can adjust and customize the ringing tones, alert tones, and other device tones for different events, environments, or caller
groups.
To customize a profile, scroll to the desired profile in the list, and select Options > Personalise.
Define the following settings:
Ringing tone — Select a ringing tone from the list, or select Tone downloads to open a bookmark folder containing a list of
bookmarks for downloading tones using the browser. To listen to the selected tone, select Play. If you have two alternate
phone lines in use, you can specify a ringing tone for each line.
Say caller's name — Activate the text-to-speech ringing tone feature. When someone from your contacts list calls you, the
device sounds a ringing tone that is a combination of the spoken name of the contact and the selected ringing tone.
Ringing type — Select how you want the ringing tone to alert.
Ringing volume — Select the volume level of the ringing tone.
Message alert tone — Select a tone for received text messages.
Or you may still go to this website for more info! http://nds1.nokia.com/phones/files/guides/nokia_E50

Remember the Motorola Q is more of a computer than a phone. Think of it like Windows Vista :(. I use the Q and love it. But I have run into this problem several times. There are a few things to try before taking your phone back. First, remove the battery and then put it back in. Second, replace the battery (power is everything). Third, try using Task Manager to kill any programs that you are no longer using. Do this on a regular basis. Fourth, refer to the manual for proper battery care. Fifth, try selecting the "Home Service/Wireless Manager" button on your home screen. Then choose phone to turn the service on. Then choose phone to turn the service back on. Resetting the service in this way is often helpful. Good luck.

boot_c_03.08.00r_mpap Paul Sager from FixYa has posted a solution for this problem previousley (as below). I have tried the Motorola and Verizon sites (tried the store as well) and the software is not available to flash the phone. Do you know of a site that would still have it available? Or can this question be sent to Paul to further comment on it? All I want to do is recover the phone numbers, notes and calandar from the phone via Activesync or Windows. Paul Sager 2335 Solutions July 14, 2010 I can help you with your Motorola Moto Q. What has happened is that the firmware of your phone has become corrupted. When this happens your phone will no longer finish its boot sequence. This is a very common situation with many phones: in fact, much of what I do here at Fixya is explain how people can fix their MP3 players, GPS and phones by reflashing the firmware. The good news is that if you take your phone into your carrier's store, they can reflash it for you right there (if they have a competent tech handy.) If you are comfortable with computers etc, you can also do it yourself. Your computer will communicate with and fix your phone, even though it doesn't seem to recognize it right now - I've seen this many many times. My only warning for you is that if you are going to flash your phone yourself, you need to get the correct firmware from motorola's site for your carrier. I just downloaded the Verizon firmware as an example - Motorola's website has about ten different carrier firmwares for their MotoQ phone. I hope that helps.
