I bought a razr v3 cell phone on ebay. I just through my sim card in and went. It worked for about 4 weeks and then the service went dead. I thought it was just a dead spot but the service never came back. I did a master reset on it, I tryed searching all networks (it said no network available) What should I do?

This could be a couple of problems. A it could be a software problem and could be fixed by updating your software on motorola.com. Otherwise it be a blown antenna. Just for you future refference, unless it's from a phone company or wireless provider Online is a terrible place to get anything to do with cell phones. In fact, there is often times more counterfiet and defective items available than legitimate. eBay is actually the worst for this.

It may be caused that when you take out sim from old phome it has damaged, try for old one is it still working? if not then your sim is dead, also old phones made SIM-s to be bend and such SIM-s have difficlt electrical connection with new phones.
Also find if "this sim only" is activated in your phone.
It must give you signal, Insert sim card, or insert proper sim. If insert sim card warning card is damaged or have not enough good connection, if another, then this sim only is activated you first you must unlock it to work .
alot of guys that sell "unlocked " phones sell a regular network-specific phone but they'll include a universal unlock wafer-thin sim that fits in your phone between your sim card and the phone contacts. Look in the box ..if you still got it look for a plastic sd card sized container and see if there's one with you phone... if not you can get one on ebay for about ten bucks.. let me know what happens...
