My phone will not charge

My phone was needing to be recharged.(that ever so polite tone was reminding me) I no longer heard the tone so I believed that the battery had just run out so I placed it on the charger but the phone did not register being is just off. do you think that the battery is fried and when I replace it the phone will charge normally or is this a more serious problem? please help me...

    I just want to know how long does my phone need to charge if it has not been in use you a couple on months?

    I was given a Motorola RAZR V3 phone as a gift from my brother. The phone made a beeping sound every 3 minutes last night. I guess this was a battery low warning. I removed the battery to silence the alarm. Now the phone is completely off, even when I put the battery back. When connecting the phone via USB cable to a PC, the phone remains off. I believe I need a driver for the cable to work properly.  Do I have to buy this driver, or is it freely available?

The only way to find out is if you insert someone else's battery into your RAZR and plug in your charger. If it works, then it's your battery, and you need a new one. If it doesn't work, then you have a serious problem..which may require you to send the phone into repair unless you're happy with attempting the repair yourself. Check the problem "My RAZR won't stay on" for my advice on the more serious problem.

Well take your battery out and then plug the charger in and attempt to power it on. if nothing happens try a new charger first. If this still won't work then you have serious problems with the phone.

Why is it that the phones battery only lasts 24 hours even when im not using it and it is on idle mode? how can i change my message tone from items that i downloaded from the market?

some of the message tones on other cellphone brands are irreplaceable and you can't change that for it is on default not unlike those of the smartphones they have the option of either adding message tones and ringtones or removing entirely all default tones embedded.

on the battery life, try to turn off bluetooth, infrared or other active applications when not needed to minimize battery usage. if possible, try to configure your display's brightness too. if you have a new battery try to wear out factory charge whenever possible before recharging it fully. this will give the battery the boost after it had been recharged fully.

Does "battery missing" on a Garmin GPS simply mean

There's no fee needed for help. I have to admit - I've never heard of this error on Garmin units, but there's always a first. It would help to know which Garmin you're talking about. Could you please leve the model name or number?

"Battery missing" would indicate that there is absolutely no charge left in the battery - which would make the GPS believe none is present. Attempt a recharge if you can. More info will come once I know which GPS you have.

My phon will not let me use ringtones. it is saying that it is corrupted

The proprietary software can be picky. It can also corrupt data. If the ring tones are downloads from your official cell site "im assuming its sprint." you should be able to erase them and download new copies free of charge. If they are third party ring tones they could be corrupt or an unsupported format. If you continue to have issues with corruptions take your phone into the store and have them do a software upgrade or a refirb. It sould take no longer than 30 mins and will reformat the opperating system and firmware in most cases. FYI any saved data on the phone could be lost including phone numbers unless they make a back up. REMIND THEM. Good look.

The phone does not have a dial tone,but the corded phones do

hi my phone does not have a dial tone. I've tried taking out my phone from the charger but its off

On hold alert

You probably need to be more specific as to which tone is annoying :-)

The ON HOLD source is what the caller hears when he's put on hold. It can be adjusted in SYS programming to Tones, Music, or None.

The HELD REMINDER tone is what your phone does when you put a call on hold. It can be set for none to 180 seconds in 30 second increments (at least on a CICS).

The programming is done using a 7310 or better phone in system programming.


Cant get one of the phone to get dial tone says unavalibel

All you have to do is put the phone that does not get a dial tone on the MAIN CHARGING BASE for 20 seconds! it will then sync up!

Good luck!

I want my N73 to ring for longer than 2 rings


Set a FULL SONG from your archive as RING TONE. This will play longer time to remind you that someone is calling.


Supriyo DG

Missed call reminder beep

if you try turning off the warning tones it should stop this happening but remember this might stop your alarm from working if this dont stop the prob then you will need to get the phone reprogrammed this can only be done through a phone shop hope this helps
