Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3
Hi everyone, I've had my razr v3 for little over 3 months (I'm in my third phone right now.) IT hasn't caused me problems and I did get it a little wet on the inside from dropping it into a puddle. About a week ago my phone would not charge, turn on, and was constantly turning itself on during the day by itself and off. It would also reset on its own which I know is a common problem. So O took it to cingular and they said it was most likely a battery problem, so they gave me a new battery yesterday. But today the same thing is happening. My phone won't turn on, won't charge, and I don't know if the battery is the problem. Anyone know what is wrong with my phone?
I am having the same problem and I never dropped my razr in a puddle or got it wet at all. If it is the water damage you can tell. There is a little dot sticker under the battery. This sticker is supposed to be white. If it is purple it is water damage. Each color means a different thing so any other color than white means bad news.

Kikimenor: Advise. If this is your 3rd RAZR V3, you must encourage Cingular (Now is the new AT&T) to replace your whole unit with another model. A friend of mine exchange his phone 4 times, until Cingular replace it. Motorola had too many problems with RAZR phones and that's why they launch quickly the SLVR L7. They still producing the RAZR, because users love the style and shape of the phone, but reality is that Motorola had several heavy issues with RAZR (Bluetooth, batt, microphone, etc.) If you're paying for an insurance on your unit, encourage them to replace it.

flyboy - Your phone was, indeed, unlocked, but they put the T-Mobile software on there and even though they use many of the same frequencies, the phone will have to be "flashed" with Cingular-system compatible software which will replace that. Having Cingular/AT&T send you the new browser settings *might* work, but I have noted that unlocked T-Mobile phones, more often than not, do NOT work on Cingular without the flashing. It's a complicated and potentially problematic process that I don't recommend using unless you are computer/cell-phone savvy. You can find more information here:

If you have an unlock phone and say for example you're now w. AT&T (cingular). Ofcourse your service will be provided from At&T, however sometimes there's gonna be a possibility that sometimes your service may upper under a different service provider. It's because all service providers sometimes borrows service for their customers from other carriers (roaming partners) if they don't have any coverage in the area, and that's what they call "roaming." However if you're question was say for example .. the phone turns on and it identifies Telstra when you turn the phone on just like when you have an at&t phone and phone identifies at&t when you turn it back on. It's only going to identify that service provider if phone cam from that service provider and unfortunately you can't change it.

First, dial on the phone *#06# like you are going to call someone. This should reveal a code called the IMEI. Write it down, then call AT&T either by 611 from the phone or 800.331.0500 and provide them with the IMEI. Then, they will give you the unlocking code and walk you through how to put it in.
Hope this helps. :)
