Motorola Razr v3 stuck in mute mode. Finally find mute switch during a call, turn it off , says mute off with green arrow and then it reverts back to mute!

No idea how phone got stuck on mute! Impossible to get mute to go off. Made a call & got the mute setting to finally come up & I turned it off - it says mute off, green arrow shows. Then it reverts to mute again!

Back up your data and do a factory reset. You will lose all data but this usually will fix this issue.

    I was hoping to not have to do that. I don't know how to back up this phone's data (didn't know I could). It's an old phone, probably 8 years old... I pulled the battery & it didn't help. When I hold the mute button & get the unmute to come up, how do I make it stay? The green arrow checks UNmute but it goes away & the red mute comes back on in the lower left corner of the screen & of course I can't hear anything. When the mute button is held & I press options it takes me to another area unrelated to the mute feature. I have no idea what triggered this miserable thing since it can only be turned on during a call & I never knew it was there!
    I simply answered my phone & it was on mute!

    Some people have had success putting their phone in a bag of rice for several days with battery out without turning it on. For some this works but it is usually only temporary. Plan on getting a new phone and transferring your info even if you get it to work as your days are likely numbered. Wish I had better news but water and electronics don't mix.

    Computer will not charge your phone if the computer is off, may stop charging during standby or sleep mode. If failure to charge over night was on wall charger its a problem with charger/cable. OR your phones battery is junk.

    Lost unlock code

    Depending on how many modifications, hacks, or customizations that you perform on your Motorola RAZR V3 phone, there may be situations where the phone becomes unusable or completely locks up. I have had visitors to the site report not being able to delete ring tones, text messages, or have other strange behaviors with their Motorola RAZR V3 phone.

    If this is you situation, then you may be interested in performing a master reset (or “hard reset”) on your phone. The master reset will effectively restore your phone back to the factory condition, inclusive of all settings. Be warned, any data that you have not backed up, photos you have not transferred, calendar settings, or messages you have not saved will be lost! Make sure you do this first, if possible!

    Here is how you perform a Master Reset on the Motorola RAZR V3:
    1. Open your phone up and go to “Settings”
    2. Next go to the selection for “Initial Setup”
    3. Next go to the selection for “Master Clear”
    4. Then select to confirm the option.
    5. Now enter the security code which should be “000000”
    6. Finally press select or ok and the phone will reset itself to the factory condition

    Congratulation you have performed a “hard reset”, “hard reboot”, or “master reset” on your Motorola V3 RAZR and it should return to normal operating mode!

    Razr in mute mode

    the only mute function is to mute/unmute a call during the active call.
    It is the - key (center button at the top of the keypad)
    Have you turned the volume too low?
    If you turn the volume to low, it will stay low all the time until you reset it to a higher level.
    You just press the volume keys on the side of the flip lid or set in the setup menu.

    Is there a way to turn of predictive text completely?

    From Twitter by @handbooklive,

    @RAZR_Problems To switch to another text mode on RAZR watch chapter 11 of a HandBookLive RAZR v3 video

    Good luck.

    Turning the phone on

    take out the battery and put it again then keep on charging. if you see the charging light on your phone then it'll surely work

    Razr V3 will not ring?

    that means the phone's main-board is faulty so you both need to have the mobiles exchanged.
