Motorola Mobility RAZR - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


What to do if - "Contact Service Provider", "Tampert Alter", "Wait before enter special Code" message is displayed: If after inserting a simcard from a different provider you notice the message "contact service provider" or any of the messages above, you will need to leave your phone on, at that "contact service provider" screen, for 1-3 hours. Just let it sit on the screen and dont touch any buttons during that time. It will then switch to something like "enter subsidy password", and you can then enter your code.

Hello PattiPaige,

The feature to disable answering the phone when you open the flip can be found under:

Settings & Tools
- Call Settings
- In Call Setup
- Answer Options
- Set option to Off

This will disable the flip from answering the call when opened.

As for increasing the font size, i don't believe there is an option to do so. If I become aware of one I'll try to get back to you on.

Hope this helps,
cHiPz

I plugged my phone up and all of a sudden got the message "Unable to charge" on it. I changed chargers (i had an extra one), i changed batteries (i had an extra one), and i swapped every combination imaginable.
My solution....
My Razr's plug has an opening to plug the phone that resembles a person's navel, and it got dirt and dust bunnies in it while it was in and out of my pockets. I was able to take an old tooth brush (or your new one if your really desperate), and got a can of office duster that you use to clean keyboards. Turn the can of office duster upside down for a second while you are spraying it and liquid will come out as you are spraying the connector. Immediately after that, use your toothbrush to work it inside the dirty connector to free it from anything that will keep it from making good contact. Then, hold the can of office duster upright and it will only spray air... and blow the connector free of anything that you loosened with the brush. Repeat this process if after all this it still doesn't work... because you have a REALLY REALLY dirty connector if it doesn't work after the first try.

You have to use one or the other. If you use the earpiece or headphones, you have to use one with a microphone in it. If you use the speaker in the phone, you have to choose it from settings during the call and use the phone's microphone and speaker.

First thing to note is that the deleted data on the phone will remain there until something new is saved and overwrites it. This might not happen immediately but eventually, after continued use, it will.
Either connect the phone straight to a PC using a USB cable (if supplied with the phone) or take the card out and put it in a card reader attached to the PC. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.

Then try some photo recovery software on the PC. This should recognise the phone or card and then you can scan it using the free download of some good photo recovery software. That will show you what files still exist on the phone or card and what can be recovered.

Possibly that particular SIM and your Motorola V3 do not play nicely together. Separate them and everything works.

Which Country Network Lock now?
You can get the Unlock code and Unlock Instructions at
moz-screenshot-7.pnghttp://www.theunlockspot.com/motorola-razr-v3/rs10wp9/
follow the Instructions and Unlock it step by step:
Motorola RAZR V3 Unlocking Instructions Warning : Do not enter any wrong unlock codes on your Motorola RAZR V3 mobile phones. If you enter over a certain amount of wrong unlock codes on your Motorola RAZR V3 mobile phone, your phone may get hard locked and sometimes become unusable.
1 - Switch ON your Motorola RAZR V3 with a NOT ACCEPTED SIM Card,
2 - Phone will display "Enter Special Code",
3 - You can now enter the Unlock Code.

NOT ACCEPTED: We mean, to use a sim card from a network other than the network your Motorola RAZR V3 is locked to.

WARNING: If one of theses messages appear :

- "Contact Service Provider"
- "Tampert Alter"
- "Wait before enter special Code"
- "Contact Service'

It's because you or somebody already entered too many wrong codes, you just have to leave the Motorola RAZR V3 ON with the errors message and after 40 minutes to 2 hours the message "Enter Code Special" will appear again!

You can report the number to the authorities, or
Yes, sort of: go to Settings->Security->Enter lock code here if you've created one(otherwise ignore this step)->Limit Use->Restrict Incoming Calls

From this step, you'll have to choose to restrict incoming calls from anyone NOT in your Contacts <Except Contacts>. You'll still get the voicemails and notifications of who called, but unwanted callers will go right to voicemail and you can call them back whenever you are ready.

I would search google for "file recovery" software and run that on your microSD disk, just like you would a floppy or hard disk and see if it will find anything.
