I use phone tools version 4.0 with the razr v3c from us cellular and everything works fine for me. I did notice that when I switch between the phone tools programs I get the same message as you for a few seconds before the programs switch. But it does switch over and I am able to use all the functions perfectly. I have heard of some people having problems with phone tools version 3.0 and if you are using that version, that may be where the problem lies.

You have no problems with it b/c you have US Cellular, which "allows" you to do transfering of multimedia objects (mp3s, pics, etc) to your v3c.

Verizon doesn't allow users to do that since they want users to pay for that kind of service (Get it Now service). They did however release the v3c with the .02 software to allow you to do this (by mistake I believe) which they fixed by releasing the newer v3c's with .03 and .04 software.

I bought my v3c with the .03 and I'm still pondering if I should "hack" my phone to do this. There are many forums about this on www.howardforums.com but it's a lengthy process with many tools to utilize.

You need to change the phone or modem type to v3m (I think that is the choice) and it will work.
Go into setup and look for the options menu.

Can you describe how to do this? I don't see a setup button on my screen, or on the program that installed the USB driver.

How/where can I get these "tools"?

The "tools" you're referring to is Motorola Phone Tools available for purchase from motorola themselves or even from eBay.

I just flashed my RAZR with the new software at the VZW store and now my MPT will not transfer ringtones to my phone. Did anyone else have the same problem? If so, how did you fix the issue. I have tried changing it with V3cm, E815, etc and nothing seems to work.

Verizon has blocked some features when using the Motorola software. In that case you need to use the Verizon service to transfer ringtones. That's what the tech support told me.
