right well my v3x broke about a year and a half ago. ive just unscrewed it all, and unscrewed it and the usb connection has melted!
the solder connection has melted!
i always thought the phone overheated and it couldnt have been any good for it.
There's no problem even if you purchsed your phone in Scottland, the problem is you haven't configured your phone's settings properly that's why you can't use your mobile browser in your area,, that triangle, on some countries, is sometimes replaced by an engraved globe icon, there's no problem they still have the same function,, what i want you to do is to Contact your Network Provider on how you could get your "Configuration Settings".. actually there are types: 1) GPRS/Internet/3G 2) MMS.. save everything that your network will send you and once done, make the GPRS/Internet Config Setting from that network as "your default" connections,, then when everything is clear, try to browse the site by pressing the triangle/globe icon on your phone's keypad.. alright?
If you need further assistance don't hesitate to post another comment here..
Sorry for that one, but i think you used your phone roughly, every phone from every brand with a Slider, Flip / Clam, and Rotate / Twist style uses "Flex Cables or Ribbons that connects from the main console to its screen, if you don't treat your handset right it won't last long,, My phone is more than 2 years now but honestly i'm not yet experiencing any of the problems stated below,, except when i tried to save huge amount of files making the storage full then i once experienced that it turned off but nothing more other than that.. so to prevent this from happening only consume the 40 - 60% of your storage.. pls refer to my early post about "Phone Care Guide & other Practical Tips" for further info..
hi. i have my v3x from scottland. i had its line opened but still there are features i cant actually use. there is some sort of connection to the network of scottland that i cant even use applications and games as it still needs some kind of license to the browser or something. i really cant understand it. its a triangle thats in the browser button instead of a globe thingy... and a sign of number "3".. im not familiar with it, how can i use my phone and make it compatible with services here in the philippines..... or whats the problem really??? thanks in advance...
can anyone help me? i have this phone for almost two years already and for that 1 year of using it i'm experiencing a white screen and then it will restart automatically. there are times that it will hang and my remedy is to detached the battery. after that, a few days ago my battery was drained. after i charged it, my phone no longer work.
I thought of testing it with a new battery coming from my sister, since we have the same
phone but it also didn't work out. i tried to
bring it to a repair center but its very much cossy since it cost a thousand bucks, the center said it was the ribbon. anybody experienced this? pls ASAp
thanks moto lady.. i did what you told me but unfortunately i didnt find any memory card in the storage devices it only says phone memory.. i have a memory card but i cant understand why it isnt there in the storage devices
www dot hellomoto dot com / then select your country from where you've purchased your phone, download the "Motorola Software Update" program,, update or refurbish your phone.. just make sure you had a back up of all your phone data because refurbishing may take time to finish...
Install the Software Update on your PC, update it by connecting to the internet, and so on,, once done, connect your phone to the PC via USB then..so on and so forth.. kindly read all the instructions carefully before proceeding..
@Rick (Trade Mark) i've this phone and have similar problem. can you tell me how i can find the last firmware of this phone and a guide cause i've never change the firmware. my mail is helloct @gmail.com
before you can use the video calling feature of the phone,of course you need to configure the settings or activate that feature through your carrier. that really depends if your service provider supports video calling. once activated you can only use video calling if you have a 3G signal.
Hi there buddy! yeah i do understand what you mean, i also have a user's manual and there seems to be little information regarding videocalling..unfortunately, if you don't pay closer attention you won't definitely see it..
Well, using videocalling is as simpple as making calls, let me guide you, do you notice that blue button just above the green button (left), yup the green button is for making regular calls but that BLUE BUTTON just right above it is the VIDEOCALL BUTTON..See? just dial a number you wish to videocall or browse the number in your phonebook then press that blue button and you are way to go..
Your phone might have virus,, you need to refurbish your firmware to knock off things like this.. on-off phenomenon, etc..
I just received my V3x today i live in Ontario Canada my provider is Rogers.The phone keeps turning off & on and it won't even turn on when the battery is fully charged. Also i did my home work to purchase a new phone that has video calling since we have that feature in Canada,so when i was looking on line the specifications said that it was one of their features but in the manual it has nothing to say about having it.This is not a good start..any answers might help
i have a motorola v3x. after i registered to my networks unlimited texting service, my phone no longer can create message, add a contact to my phonebook or update my calendAR. whenever i try to input something on my phone, it turns off, flashes white screen then turns on again. its always doing that whenever for example i try to create a message or reply to that message. but i still can make and receieve calls and messages. it this some technical issue? is it a virus? or is it hacked by my network? pls help me!!!!

These are just additional features & are made by 3rd party software developers / encoders, installing this firmware is at your own risk, there might be some issues that might occur upon installation.. please read all the statements provided by the makers of this software prior to installation.. Because there are some do's & don't's as far as this firmware is concerned according to the makers.. just follow instructions carefully.. If your phone still has a warranty..the decision lies in your hands whether you install this or not..in short, it's up to you:)
Rick,does adding all those features make this unreliable phone reliable?and does adding those features end my warranty on the phone?
this is my first moto phone given to me by my very generous bf hehehe and i worked for motorola us as well...one of the best phones i have...
If you are used to Nokia before i think this one is bit "Gotcha" for you..specially when sending photos via bluetooth..
To send files via bluetooth all you have to do is:
1) Browse / go to the file you want to send
2) Press option (hey i know what you're thinking, don't select "send" alright?
3) But instead, select "Manage"
4) then select "Copy"
5) then finally select "Bluetooth" and so on..
See that? A bit tricky right? It's the Moto way,,
