3G Icon

All of a sudden after approx. a month or so my 3G Icon disappeared from my phone, I turned of my phone for a couple times, removed the battery and nothing, after that i called At&t, explained to them what was happening, they left me on hold for about 3 minutes, and when the rep came back she told me she had done a "system refresh", she then instructed me to turn off the phone for about 2 minutes and that the problem should go away after turning it back on, i did as she instructed me to do, and till this day i haven't seen the 3G icon on my phone anymore, now i don't even know if I'm running on edge or 3g.

Has this issue occurred to anyone else? if so what can i do to get the icon back on my phone?

Text messaging alerts

Just have a simple question. Does the RAZR have the ability to have text message alerts OTHER than using the assigned ring tone as an alert whenever it receives a test message? Like for example, I have an assigned ring tone to a person but when I receive a text from that person, that ringtone plays. I just want a regular sound notification like a beep. Is that possible?

Camera Issue

I've had my V3xx for about 2 months now and recently I've been having issues with my camera. Whenever I open the camera application the screen is in all shades of pink and green (no it is not on night vision). I have never dropped the phone or anything like that and the camera worked fine when I first got the phone. I was wondering if anyone else was having this issue and if anyone can offer me some sort of solution?

razr v3xx identifiers

I have been looking to purchase the razr v3xx cellphone. The best price with a contract renewal was at my local discount store. When I went to purchase the phone, there was nothing on the phone, box or manual that said v3xx. Is it possible there are "cheap" imposters out there or is this typical? Can anyone help me out?

The text message symbol on the internal and external screen came on the other day and wouldn't turn off. My first inclination was to reboot it which didn't work and then to reboot it after taking the battery out for a bit. It comes back. Someone else on this forum had a similar problem with the voice mail indication. Has anyone else had a similar problem or have any other ideas about fixing it? I know the problem really doesn't matter, but it is an annoyance.

Lexus (maybe others) hands Free

I have the Moto V3XX (from ATT) and use it connected to the built-in bluetooth hands free system in my car. I am happy with it except for one thing - incoming calls do not ring. The nav screen shows the incoming call but unless I see it, I am not aware of the call until the caller speaks (I have it on auto answer).

Anyone know how I can hack or otherwise modify the V3XX to ring on incoming calls?

Can't change speed-dial numbers

I'm having a problem with speed-dial. I can't seem to change the numbers. I've tried two different ways, through the contact entry, and through the speed-dial settings. It says it's changed, but when I try it, it's still the old number. Any ideas? Thanks...

Once and for ALL -- LISTEN !!!


Me, my wife and teenage daughter have had "THIRTEEN" of these V3xx's over the last two months BECAUSE OF THIS "CALL-QUALITY ISSUE".
AND... AT&T has acknowledged it, as well as MOTO !!! BUT !... they say most people are not picking up on it, and it IS otherwise a great phone... so the problem stays... especially with the V9 and it's counterparts on the horizon. The V9 has Crystal-Talk (as you all know). So...

Now back to this problem. You're all hearing it... those who aren't noticing it are the fortunate ones.

It is a slightly-distorted, OVER-BASS-Y, and MUFFLED, sound... and YES, turning off the "Bass Boost" within the Music Player does make a slight difference, very slight.

Most callers sou...

solid red battery icon flashing

Hey does anyone know what the solid flashing red battery icon means? My phone was down to one bar so I plugged in to be recharged. When I plugged in the charger, instead of your usual yellow/green flashing bar it was solid red and flashing. After a couple hours the phone did not charge at all. The message in the window said charging but the battery icon was flashing red.

After turning my phone off/on several times and plugging in the charger a few times, it finally when to the normal yellow/green icon and it's now charging.

Was it a connection issue? Battery issue? other?

KRZR vs. V3xx

In the market for a phone to replace my original Razr and was wondering if anyone has experience with these two phones. Both look like the would do the job but there are some slight differences and I'm looking for someone who's used both. Thanks- bobbabe

Camera quality?

I love my new V3xx except the camera takes really lousy photos. Blurry almost always, and sometimes dark/underexposed.

Is this just my phone? (Are defective cameras common with cellphones?) Will they exchange it for me (I'm still in my 30-day trial) ? Do they make it difficult to exchange when you have problems like this (like saying I'm just a lousy picture-taker or something) ?

Or do other people have this problem too?

voice dial tips

I've tried using the voice dial and it seems to have poor reconition. I doesn't reconize even the simplest names such as "Paul" or even "mom" or even "Peter". I've tried talking slower, faster, louder softer and even made sure the phone language is set to English. Any suggestion would be appreciated. Confused

Text converting to MMS

I was wondering if any one else has seen the below problems. I have seen 3 phones all doing the same thing:

1. On the V3xx you go to type a text message - it shows you are doing a text message but when the other person receives it they receive it as a mms message. It doesn't do this every time but does do it sporadically.

2. Ringer Id's ~ On the Motorola's the ringer id will go off when the person calls and when a text message is received from that person. Well on several V3xx's this is also sporadic. When the person calls the ringer id will play every time but if it is a text message sometimes it will play the ringtone or sometimes it will play the default text sound.

The first phone I saw like this was a friend of mine's we did ...

Anyway to suspend the browser when closing the phone?

I really enjoy the built in browser and I think it works really well for a throw in, but I have one minor gripe. I hate how it completely quits the browser and makes you start over from the beginning if you close the phone. Does anyone know of a way to suspend the bowser, sort of like you can do with applications/games. It didn't really bother me a whole lot until I saw how my Dad's N75 does this without having to change any settings. Of course that is running on a Symbian OS, which is better than the RAZR's OS. Any info or advice would be great.

Camera and charger question?

I have had the v3xx for about a week and I took back the first one because it didn't look like the camera was focusing at all. This second one doesn't appear to be better. I am sending the pics to my pc to look at them and they are very blurry. I have a old 1 meg digital camera that is a lot sharper than this. Is it my phone or am I expecting too much?
Also the second phone has a tiny bit of blue tape around the cord on the charger (the first one didn't). Would the at&t store sell me a returned or refurbished phone and this is a "mark" that it is? Also the manual is printed almost off the pages. Sad
