Question about Motorola Lands Phones

1 Answer

I purchased a Motorola V170 cell phone and use it only for emergencies. Therefore I have the phone shut down most of the time but will activate it when traveling. When the phone is shut off, it will automatically turn itself on at various times during the middle of the night and during the day. How can I delete this problem so the phone does not automatically turn on and I am awakening by the tone.

Please help me

I cannot be sure, but did you buy the phone privately or from a store ? if it is from a store there is something wrong like the phone was not activated. the only othere thing I can think of it is a stolen phone sand the previuos owner has reported it missin/stolen. the service provider can then shut off the phone.

Display problem on Motorola V170 cell phone

The display should still be there, but the backlight is off. What you need to do is get the display under a bright desk lamp and find the setting to turn the back light back on.

Open the phone, hit the center button between the arrows, find "Settings" with the arrows, press the top left button (thats select, as the hard to see screen says).

Now navigate with the arrows through settings to "Other settings", (hit top left button again), "Initial setup" (button again), "backlight" (again), and choose 20 seconds. Right now it is on "off", which makes it so hard to see.

Hope that helps.
