Motorola Razr V3m - won't load mainscreen/turn on


I didn't get to charge my battery so it drained out. When I tried charging it again, it won't turn back on. There is a blank screen on the cover, and the "verizon wireless" screen when opened, but it just locks there. It won't load the main screen when I try to power it on. The problem is I can't get to any of my data (my contacts, pictures, anything!) I tried switching batteries, and the battery works on another razr (a different working battery still doesn't work on mine). I just had this phone since early this year, and kept it in perfect shape. I tried taking out the battery/putting it back.. and I also tried charging it, but it doesn't seem to charge through my phone either, the screen remains blank (with the verizon screen inside) when I plug it in. I can't even turn the screen off or anything either. I don't mind getting a new phone, but is there ANY way to retrieve the data?? Any way to get to the main menu? The verizon people said the only way is to get to the main menu... is that true? :(

Thanks if you could help.

It may be your card. Take the card out and try it again I had to do that and wait for a while for it to turn on all the way

SOURCE: Razr V3M locked

You will have to call the carrier and ask them for the PUK or PUC. This is the password unlock code. They will know exactly what you need. This will allow you to override the password and reset it. Some phones have 2 password codes. If you unlock it and some features still are inaccessible, then you may need the PUK2 code also.

SOURCE: RAZR V3M thinks it's always open - Screen will not turn off

in the top right corner you are suppose to have a little circular magnet that changes the screen when the phone is open or closed. I just changed my housing yesterday and took the magnet out and put it in my new housing but for some reason i have the same problem as you. so maybe you lost the magnet when you replaced the lcd and if that is the case then you are screwed. try have Motorola fix it, don't tell them you replaced the lcd

My inbox on my razor phone says no messages but memory full

I mentioned this in another area. We just got my son a motorola razr v3m, verizon. Any time he tried to check his inbox (which is text) or tried to send a text it would show memory full....this was the same if he tried to take a picture and send it.

First take out your battery, with the battery out, hold down you on button for like 15 seconds to drain the phone of juice, then put your battery back in it and turn it on. If this did not reset your phone, and if you are on verizon as your carrier, then you need to call them and make sure that they have you set up on their text messaging program. It used to be that if you didn't have, then they would charge you .20 cents a text, but with some of the razr, such as the v3m, you have to actually be on a monthly text plan to view inbox, send text, send pics, and receive pics and texts.

you simply fried your battery by overcharging it. Just get a new one, let it fully charge and fully die twice before you start normal charging. Then you will want to only charge it for about 2 to 3 hours or find a charger that has a smart chip that tells it when to stop charging once the battery is full.
