Even when I press the button to turn the phone on, it will not turn on.

If your phone will not turn on, try turning your phone on using the power button when the phone is plugged into a manufacturer approved charger.

Check to see if the charging display screen turns on when the phone is plugged into a wall charger.

Even though I’m pressing buttons, none of them seem to be working.

If none of the phone’s keys are responding when they are being pushed down, including the power button, take the battery out of the back of the phone and wait five seconds before re-attaching it. Then turn the phone back on and see if the buttons are responsive.

If only some of the buttons will not respond to being pushed, you may need to replace the keypad and clean behind the keys.

My pictures are always blurry or they never turn out good or I am unable to take a photo.

If your pictures are not coming out as nice as you would like, perhaps it is a problem with the way you are taking your photos or the place in which you are taking pictures. Perhaps you could try taking pictures in well-lit environments, making sure to keep your hands steady while taking them.

If your memory is filled to capacity with videos, songs, apps and pictures you will not be able to take photos. Try deleting some things you do not need or transfer them to another device so you do not lose them.

If your camera lens is dirty, your photos can come out looking fuzzy or spotty.

To clean the lens, take a piece of cloth or a Q-tip and wipe gently in circular motions until the lens is clean.

If your pictures are still not coming out the way you would like, perhaps it is a problem with the actual camera. Your camera may need to be replaced.

There is no ringtone for incoming calls.

If this happens for everyone that calls you, check your ringtone settings and see if it is set to a low volume ringtone. You can do this by selecting “Menu,” then “Sound Settings,” and then “Phone Ringtone.” Make sure your ringtone is audible.

If this only happens to certain people, check their personal ringtone settings. Perhaps a certain ringtone is prescribed only when they call. You can check a personal contact’s ringtone by selecting “Contacts,” then choosing the contact in question, and selecting “Options.”

The Motorola Razr V3m will not hold a charge or it dies quickly.

If your phone will not charge correctly, perhaps the problem lies with the charger you are using. Make sure you are using a charger that is compatible with the Motorola Razr V3m.

If your charger is compatible to the Motorola Razr V3m, the problem may be that the charger is not working correctly. Try connecting your charger to a compatible device to verify that it is working properly. If it is not, you may need to purchase another charger.

If your charger is working correctly but your phone will still not charge, this may be a sign that your battery needs to be replaced.

If you have replaced the battery and the problem still occurs, your Motorola Razr V3m’s charging port may be damaged and may need to be replaced.

If the problem persists after testing the solutions above, you may have defective Motorola Razr V3m. Check with your cell phone provider for replacement policies.

The Motorola Razr V3m is unable to receive or send picture messages.

If you are in an area of poor service connection, your phone may not be able to send or receive messages. Verify that you are in an area of good service connection by looking at your service connection icon on your display or by contacting your service provider.

If you have having problems receiving or sending picture messages, your phone may need to be restarted. Restarting your phone may correct a temporary glitch.

If you are having trouble finding your pictures to send to others, it may be because your phone is not reading your SIM Card. Make sure your sim card is correctly inserted into the phone.

If the problem persists, your SIM Card may need to be replaced.

Incoming calls keep going straight to voicemail.

If you are not located in an area of service coverage, incoming calls may be redirected to voicemail. Verify that you are in an area of good service connection by looking at your service connection icon on your display or by contacting your service provider.

The Motorola Razr V3m’s Call Forwarding feature temporarily redirect incoming calls straight to voicemail. To turn off Call Forwarding, access your Voicemail settings.

It is difficult or impossible to hear an incoming call.

Perhaps you turned down the volume in the past intentionally and forgot to reset the volume. To access your volume settings, press the volume buttons on the left side of your screen. Press the up button to make the volume louder volume higher.

If the Motorola Razr V3m’s Bluetooth settings are on, you may be unable to hear incoming calls by pressing your phone’s speaker against your ear. Make sure your phone’s Bluetooth settings are turned off.

Restarting your phone may correct a temporary glitch.

If you are still unable to hear incoming calls after following the solutions above, your speaker may need to be replaced.

One Comment

None of the suggestions above does anything. My mobile gave out an unknown ringtone from the back of the car. Thought nothing of it. Later, it went crazy. Screen picture went into overdrive zapping up and down. eventually it settled and what I see now is Silent. At first this interchanged with Vibrate. The keys are non-responsive so can’t select ringtone. Somebody please help. I’ve had the phone since it first came on the market.
