Phone shuts down and restarts when typing text

My phone has recently started to shut itself down and restart itself evry time I go to type a message or add a name into my phone. The phone has not been dropped too badly or gotten wet and the rest of the phone works fine except for when inputting text etc. Can someone help? thanks!

    I have the same problem, only when I input text (as a message or contact name) my phone freezes. The only to restart it is to take out the battery, and then restart. I've taken it to TMobile but was told that it was just an old phone and there is nothing they can do about it. Any other suggestions? I'm not ready to "upgrade" phones yet...

Hmm, never heard this type of problem with V3. 1) Turn it off and disconnect everything and remove the battery. Leave it off for about 5 second. Put back the battery and power it back on and see if it still does the same. 2) If #1 doesn't work, try your best to backup all your data on the phone like contacts, etc that you want to keep. Then take it to your provider store (Cingular, Verizon, T-mobile, etc) and show them the problem. There might be a glitch in the firmware. But your provider should be able to troubleshoot it easily. You might lose all your phone information which was why it's best to back them up first.

Hard disk cyclic redundancy check

A cyclic redundancy check error on a hard disk means that part of a file read from the hard disk doesn't match the expected value.


A cyclic redundancy check error, in other words, means that files on your hard drive are corrupted.

Repair a cyclic redundancy check error on a hard disk using the Check Disk tool in Windows.


Click "Start" and click "Computer."


Right-click the hard disk with the cyclic redundancy check error under "Hard Disk Drives" and click "Properties."

Click the "Tools" tab at the top of the hard disk "Properties" window.


Click "Check Now" under "Error Checking."


Select "Automatically Fix File System Errors" and "Scan for and Attempt Recovery of Bad Sectors" in the "Check Disk" window by clicking each option if it isn't already selected.


Start a disk check and repair by clicking "Start" in the "Check Disk" window.


Click "Yes" if the "Do you want to schedule the disk check to occur the next time you restart the computer?" prompt appears.


A disk can't be checked if it's in use, so you'll need to restart Windows to check it.


Restart your computer by clicking "Start," clicking the arrow icon to the right of "Shut Down" and clicking "Restart."


Fix a Cycle Redundancy Check Error


The "Cyclic Redundancy Check" error is a Windows error message telling you there's a problem reading data you're trying to access.


The root of this problem could either be a damaged storage device or a corrupt file.

Windows has built-in tools to attempt to fix to this problem, and avoid further errors.


Click on the "Start" menu in the bottom left-hand corner and click "Run."

Type in "cmd" and press "Enter" on your keyboard.

This will open a black command prompt box.


Type in "chkdsk /f" and press "Enter."

If you receive a message saying the disk will be checked the next time the system starts, press "Y" and then "Enter."


Restart your computer by closing the command prompt box and selecting "Shut Down" from the Start menu.


Wait for the disk scan to reach 100 per cent.

This may take awhile.

When it completes, your drive errors may be fixed.


Avoid future problems with this type of error by replacing the file that caused the problem.

For example, if you got the error when using a text document, open the document and copy all the text (press "Ctrl" and "A" at the same time and then "Ctrl" and "C" at the same time).


Create a new text document and paste the text in by pressing "Ctrl" and "V" simultaneously. Save the new file, and delete the old document.


Hope this heps

My phone keeps shutting off every time i go to type a text message

If it's truly a loose battery, more than likely it's the connections that are making secure contact. You can try with a thin pinted implement to pry the connection tabs on the battery compartment (the connectors onthe battery itself are fixed and imovable) outward ever so slightly and that will make for a better connection. But use care so that you don't over bend and break the connections.

Also look for any corrosion onthe connections which can cause intermittent failures.

My motorola W315 has been restarting itself lately at random times. Now, all night tonight, whenever I try to send a text message, once I press send it shuts itself down and restarts. On top of that, I'm...

sir
its the same problem which i had with my phone.
there is no problem with your phones software but with hardware. Your phones HEAP(RAM) has became very weak to take load of your phone. I will advice you to go to a nearby motorola shop. If its under warranty it will be repaired free of cost.
thankyou for using fixya

Delete recent recipients

Only way I found to delete the recent recipients of texts was to do a full reset using this code *2767*3855# before doing it back up everything you want to keep onto your memeory card and save all your contacts onto your simcard then remove the simcard and memory card. Restart the phone and type in the code *2767*3855# and the phone will restart and recent recipient will be gone.
