Let's start with the basics here. Do you have a service provider? Is it activated? Is the phone activated? If NO, then you need to subscribe to one and have them activate the phone. You simply may not have activated the phone before using it. If the answer is YES, then you may be in a "dead zone" or "bind spot". Move to different locations (several blocks sometimes). There are whole neighborhoods without service especially in the mountains. Are you in such a community? If these answers did not solve your problem then you need to take the phone back to the store you got it from.

    What happened? You changed from "solved" to "almost there". Did you take it back and it worked? That's a clue if it did work. Depending who you ask, this model does not have a good reputation. I would demand a new phone from your dealer and only be satisfied if it works once you get home.

    There are no settings on this phone that will allow us to help you solve this issue. The settings have to be made "at" the dealer when he programs it for you. Get a new phone.




Before purchasing cell phone, we should know the types of cell phones and public trend and which are using on demand so that we can assume which is best.

inspite of several assumptions and with our knowledge we took cell phones eventhough by fate of us cell phone may not work to our expections.

it will depend on only individual luck.

SOURCE: contact service provider

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.

SOURCE: Change service providers on Motorola Razr v3xx???

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.

Motorola razr v3 not catching signal

Have you used the external antenna port? If this is damaged it renders phone useless. Somehow connected to main antenna.

I have a motorola razr v3 and i lose connection

From what I have been told from a similar experience is: When it is a phone that is exclusively made for one service provider they tend to pick up a better signal since they are programmed to just accept that signal. Motorola makes phones for many service providers so they don't program it to be exclusive to one provider. By doing this the phone doesn't pick up as good of a signal as it would if it were originally programmed to pick up just one provider. I know this is a bit confusing and kinda hard to make sense by typing it but I hope it atleast helped a little bit.

Motorola RAZR V3 No signal (bars)

I had the same problem with my phone- i got a cheap generic battery to replace the old one (which wasn't holding a charge for a full day, at that) and then i lost all signal, basically. I tried what scm_pa said he did - charged my old battery up, with the phone off, till the charge was complete- turned the phone on, and voila, reception!
