    I see the outline of a sim card too! Maybe it's hidden under there!

  • Anonymous May 04, 2009

    No, I've removed the stickers and there is nothing accessable underneath them. :(

    With the display facing downward, open the access cover (located on the right side of the device). Utilizing the notch, carefully lift then rotate the cover away from the SIM card slot. Press in to unlock the card (figure 1) then slide it out of the SIM card slot. If applicable, refer to Insert the SIM Card.

Are you guys serious....

Verizon & Alltel (which happened to recently finalize the merge) use CDMA. CDMA does not use SIM cards.

AT&T, T-Mobile, etc. use SIM cards - wheter they are 3G networks, TDMA, etc.

I have a RAZR V3m also, that I bought at eBay. The slot everyone here appears to be referring to is for a micro SD card. The picture shows how the SD card is inserted. The original owners did not have an SD card installed. And the phone worked fine. Which seems to indicate the phone has an internal memory, probably a SIM card. Which is not user accessable. I'm guessing the phone has to be taken apart to get to the SIM. I'm going to be doing this in the next week or so. I'll check out the suspicious outline that problem 17 refers to first. I'll report back to this page my results.

    Hi folks - I took apart and totally destroyed my Verizon branded RAZR V3m. There is NO SIM card. Instead, there is a memory chip hard wired to the circuit board. From what I saw, this memory chip is preprogrammed with the phone number and carrier features. The card picture referred to above is for the micro SD card. This card is just for additional memory - for pics, video, and music, dependent on the carrier. I also went to the Motorola web site. They're unlocked RAZR V3's have a SIM slot underneath the battery. Bottom Line? If your RAZR V3 doesn't have a SIM card slot under the battery, forget it. You can not change carriers.

Same problem with a RAZR V3m. Picture shows card next to battery but none is there nor is slot big enough to accept one. There is a suspicious outline of a card UNDER a sticker that was under the battery. Anyone think that its hidden there?

The Motorola Razr V3M does not have a sim card so that is an error message. What I had to do was turn the phone off and let it rest for a few minutes then turn it back on and now it's working fine. I had dropped my phone when the error message appeared so it might have dislodged the chip causing it to be discombobulated.

Have motorola razr V3, how do I transfer text messages to sim rea


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. If you have Motorola phone tools installed in your system, then you can directly copy the messages from the phone to your Computer. And, if you are unable to see the messages through the SIM card reader then the messages would be in the phone and not SIM.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Got a motorola razr v3 on ebay. Not reading SIM card.


It may be caused that when you take out sim from old phome it has damaged, try for old one is it still working? if not then your sim is dead, also old phones made SIM-s to be bend and such SIM-s have difficlt electrical connection with new phones.
Also find if "this sim only" is activated in your phone.
It must give you signal, Insert sim card, or insert proper sim. If insert sim card warning card is damaged or have not enough good connection, if another, then this sim only is activated you first you must unlock it to work .

My motorola razr phone will not work. When I turn


Hi when you take that back cover off take out the battery and look for where the sim card is located. It will be very small and slid into a little holder. Take that SIM card out and make sure that the contacts on it line up with the contacts in its Holder. If the SIM is not in right it will always tell you Insert SIM. These phones rely on that SIM Card for the Information and Other Settings they need to work properly.
If you still get that Insert SIM message then it is possible that your phone was not Programmed Properly at the Place You Bought it. Take it to them and they will fix it Free.

Replace a sim card


Replacing the Sim Card on a Motorola RAZR

  1. On the back of the phone you should see grooves for you to slide off like batteries on the back of a remote.
  2. Slide off the plastic cover.
  3. Remove the Battery.
  4. You should now see the Sim card.
  5. Slide the Sim Card out / Lift up the hatch and take it out.
  6. Slide the other one in / Insert the new one and close the hatch until you hear a slight noise of it clipping in.

Sounds like the provider (AT&T, Verizon, etc) has that particular SIM card (and thus account) suspended or otherwise disabled. Call them up or stop in and find out why that would be.
