    Motorola Razr

    :-D My son has given me his old Razor :thumbsup: But it is locked to T- Mobile and as I use Vodaphone for my work mobile I was wondering has anyone got a code to enable me to unlock it?

    I don't think you can, you will need to take it to one of those guys with stalls in markets and shopping centres.

    thought so, but was just trying to save a trip in to the city centre as my wife will end up wanting to go shopping at the same time8-) Oh well looks like my credit card will be getting a hammering again:cry:

    Hi fern, I wanted to unlock my V3 and got some procedures that are meant to unlock the phone, I never tried it as I couldn't understand the computer jargon, if you P.M. me with your e.mail address I can send you the links that I got,

    fern you might want to edit those out... better to send email addresses through pm.

    it is possible but you need some idea plus software,have a read through here,i unlocked mine from t-mobile.


    motox.info/sho…568

    basically you need a bootloader,stock firmware and the motounlocker software,this will unlock and debrand,also installs save video .

    you can diy all the unlock and unbrand. more info on

    [FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]Everything works except the unlocking[/SIZE][/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]When I put a different sim card (not T-Mobile) I keep getting [/SIZE][/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]ENTER SUBSIDIDY PASSWORD
    Any Ideas?:confused: [/SIZE][/FONT]

    what exactly did you do?.did you just run the unlocker if so this wont work you need to change bootloader and firmware.here is how i did it posted on motox.

    first i changed my bootloader to 07.do using the scotty 2 downgrader,at first it said no need to downgrade.so i ran 8.26 bootloader replacer then ran scotty again.

    then i updated to latest monster pack the one feb 20 06 planetmotox.net/mon…php

    then i downloaded and installed universal simlock remover
    simlock.techgsm.com/sim…php
    and selected motorola
    v80,v220,e380,c450,c650 unlocker ran it and hey presto phone is debranded and unlocked.the phone was locked to t-mobile but i put a vodafone sim and and it accepted it fine.

    whether you actually need to downgrade bootloader i am not certain try it with either one.

    when I try to open this site all I get is a blank page
    ]http//si…php
    I open the unblocker it says it has worked but when I put in a Vodafone sime card it keeps asking for a [FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]SUBSIDIDY [/SIZE][/FONT]password

    it will say that but wont work until you change to stock firmware get the monster pack from the link.if your bootloader is 8.26 you will need to downgrade following instructions in my post.

    here is a link for downgrader files

    uploading.com/fil…tml

    in steps it works like this

    run 8.26 bootloader replacer
    run scotty 2
    install monsterpack(scroll down to razr vw uploadd feb 20 06 stock moto)
    run the unblocker.

    :confused: Still no luck
    Will have to go to see the bloke in the market
    Thanks for all the help
    Other sites only sent me to sites that wanted me to send them the phone!

    fern

    :oops: sorry ------ Thank you



    You changed post #5 to woops but your email is this there in the link.

    i was on vodafone and i had an o2 chip i wanted to put in, i rang vodafone and they gave me the instructions as to what to do, including the subsidy password, i'd been with them a few years so maybe this is why, although i don't understand why they let me to unlock my fone to all networks ?? But it worked anyway

    can you explain how I can remove my email address or is it to late?

    Anyone know how to put the V3 on silent/meeting mode?
    For nokia I could chose profiles but having trouble with V3. So far I've had to put volume on 0.
    I'm missing my Nokia now. V3 has no voice and video recorder and stopwatch/timer (or maybe they are there and can't find them :giggle: )

    try reading the manual ?

    ryoooh

    try reading the manual ?



    For your information, that's what I did first.

    and for those who can help and have a V3:
    The only way I've seen is to lower the volume to 0 for silent. If I want total silence, I have to go change the sms as well.
    What I'm looking for is a function to chose a profile (vol and sms to 0). Is there a particular way you put everything on silent?

    hi
    to put my phone on silent while I am at work I use the silver button on the top left hand side of the phone then navigate to the silent mode with the smaller button underneath (this is done while the phone is closed )
    the v3 does have a voice recorder in the extras section
    hope this helps
    :thumbsup:

    thanks for that :thumbsup:
    found it and working fine. I'm still learning how to use it properly after 3 months. :giggle: I've been a Nokia person for 6yrs and only reason I changed for V3 is because it's slim and fits in my bag and pocket :-D
