Question about Motorola Mobility A1200

A1200 auto reboot & signal problem

Phone sometimes auto reboots on its own.
Also, phone shows good signal strength with Cingular but sometimes its not connected. I turn antennae off & on to resync in order to make a call. Its upsetting because I've missed calls & don't get voicemail alerts until I turn the antennae off & on.

Is this a sim or phone problem? I have an old at&t wireless sim. Are they messing w/me?

    I have a MotoMing A1200 model. For quite sometime I am noticing that it reboots itself quite frequently. Also Many a times it does not catch any signal and remains in Emergency mode. This is quite a headache. I also have a Nokia phone. That works fine so I deduce that probably this is not a signal related problem. Can u suugest a solution.

It sounds like you may need a new SIM card. However, the fact that your phone is rebooting on it's own is troubling.

Has your phone been exposed to any liquids that you know of? There is a small round sticker inside your battery compartment, if it has turned red then it has been exposed to moisture. If so, then that could be the problem.

I would try a new SIM card first.

Some times the phone signal freezes (it shows some lines of signal but you cannot receive or make calls). I usually turn it off and on again and it starts to work but sometimes it is not turning off,...

remove your battery and leave it out for around 5minutes, when you put the battery back in, the phone should auto reboot, hence sorting out any problems it has, if this fails, contact BLACKBERRY DIRECT, they should solve the problem for you with a secret menu!!

I have full signal strength, but NO NETWORK!!

I've resolved numerous problems with phone that has a signal but cannot make calls.

What I did is to I reset the phone, but it'll completely delete all files in the phone memory.

If you want to reset the phone, perform this steps:

Turn ON the phone without a sim card then tap on the dial pad.

press *2767*3855#

phone will then reboot & put the sim card back in..

Try to make a call..

Hope that'll help you..

Happy Holidays.

I have same problem

I talked with Motorola Tech Support. The software for this phone does not have an option to Turn On or Turn Off the display of the "Time" on the External Display.

Motorola suggested to do a Master Reset. I did this and rebooted the phone. This did not fix the problem. So no Time on the Display, but everything else works.

Good Luck,

Freezing and rebooting

Go to your local service provider store and show them the problem. It is probably covered by warranty.

Motorola Phone Tools can not access to A1200 (System Memory is full)

It sounds like a bad flash or firmware to me. I would reflash to a different firmware. You can only flash to the same or a higher track with these phones, so be careful not to flash to a lower track. You could brick your phone.
