This is my preliminary V3C information page... Changes to this
will be coming, these are just "the basics" right now to get started... Sorry, this is all I have time for at the moment... More details/walk
throughs to come later..
NOTE: For the V3M I am SLOWLY integrating the information into my
pages... Most of the V3C information applies as-is with the major exception of FIRMWARE... There are a few slight variations
from the V3C... so for preliminary info and discussions please see -> V3M info to be
added to http://mark.cdmaforums.com... Suggestions wanted!!
While originally written for the Moto V710, and later updated to support the
E815... I have received confirmation from
V3C users that the following information pages
still apply to the Razr V3C/V3M with notes as follows........
Stock Phone 1, File formats supported, PC Software2, USBSER.SYS info, Seem Edit Process3, MPT info4, Transflash6, Ringers, Graphics, Express Network5, BitPim, and PC
Bluetooth pages all apply to ALL the V710, E815, V3C, V3M with some
1.The V3C does not have a Transflash (aka TF or Micro-SD) slot.
So any/all references to TF do NOT apply to the V3C. Seem Edits ARE REQUIRED on
certain V3C firmware levels and the V3M to have full functionality with MPT. As for the reference to Dial-up Networking,
please see note #5 on this page.
drivers for the V3C/V3M may need to be obtained separately as they do not come with
earlier versions of MPT
or PST. A live update to MPT v4.04b or higher will bring down the driver for the V3C to be
seen as Moto USB Modem in Windows, MPT V4.21a or higher is needed for the V3M,
and v4.36 is needed for the Krzr K1M but I suggest you use BVRP's Drivertool
instead, however drivers for PST will still be
needed. I have them on my PC Software page as
well as below.
3.While the seem edit
process is the same, the seem file is a different number and I have noted that
on the seem edit page. Some of the "popular Seem Edits". ALSO the V3C/V3M
uses a different USB Data Cable. Please see the FAQ or the info below for
USB Data selection for the V3C/V3M.
Out of the box,
the Razr V3C may or may not require Seem Edits to use the multimedia features of
MPT. See the V3C FIRMWARE NOTES for more info. You
can work with Calendar/contacts via USB Cable and Bluetooth no matter which
firmware you have. HOWEVER MPT Must Be at version 4.04b to recognize and
use the V3C, 4.21a for the V3M, and 4.36 for the Krzr K1M. And according to BVRP (who make
MPT), there is a Firmware BUG in the V3C Calendar so use that function at
your own risk!!! NOTE: this bug was fixed in the V3C's .04 firmware and is not a
problem in the V3M or Krzr K1M.
Due to Verizon's TOS forbidding tethering with EVDO phones (i.e. using the phone
as a Modem to connect to their high speed data networks) you must implement
workarounds to disable the phone's EVDO feature forcing it to 1xRtt before Express Network works.
I have more info below.
6The V3C does not have a Transflash card slot, but any of the "4 ways" to
get ringers and graphics onto to the phone listed at the bottom 1/2 of the transflash page
that do NOT require a TF card can still be used... EXCEPT seem edits are needed
depending on the phone's Firmware Level.
I have a Verizon Razr, How do I know if I have a V3C or V3M?
Well, there are a couple of ways....
1. Take the battery out, and look at the label with barcodes in the Phone's battery compartment, it should say which model it is.
2. Does your phone have a slot in the battery compartment for a Transflash or MicroSD card? If yes, you have a V3M, if no, you have a V3C.
3. Check which firmware is on your phone, use each of the firmware links
below and match it up.
IMPORTANT!!! -> V3C Firmware Notes.
<- This link contains info on the various V3C
firmware/software levels available and what features are available on each!!
READ THIS BEFORE YOU GO ANY
V3M Firmware Notes
I do not have a V3C or V3M, so for some of the V3C/V3M
specific hacks I just have links to threads.
For the most up to date info, please consult the HOW TO's page...
When it comes to Bluetooth OBEX File Transfers or Bluetooth File Transfers
using MPT on the Verizon Motorola V3C... It depends on the phone's
Firmware. Please read the V3C FIRMWARE Notes page, the Phone Bluetooth page, and/or the MPT page for more information.
The Verizon V3C/V3M phones do not support Bluetooth Object Push (aka OPP). So this means, you can not do phone to phone transfers...
this is because the Moto Phones Verizon sells do NOT support the bluetooth
profiles/protocols needed for phone to phone transfer.
(added to FAQ) USB Data cable. See the FAQ.
(added to PC Software) USB Driver for Windows.
See the HOW TO page
(added to PC Software) Driver for PST... See the PC Software page
(added to PC Software & SEEM EDIT)PST v7.23 appears to be "more compatible" with the E815/V3C.
While PST v7.1.1 works for a lot of users, some users have had issues when using
PST v7.11 where P2KSeem will say connected, but not READ the seem file from the
phone. It also may not save the seem properly to the phone. Apparently
this does not happen with v7.23. So if you can get PST v7.23, please do!!
(added to MPT) BVRP, the makers of Mobile Phone Tools (MPT) have
mentioned a bug in the Firmware of the Verizon V3C Razr when it comes to the
calendar... As such, they have disabled calendar support for the V3C in their
software. When it comes to MPT and the Calendar
functions with the V3C, Use at your own risk!! NOTE: This bug has
been fixed in the V3C GATW_01.0F.04 firmware, and does not exist in the V3M
(added to MPT) Purchasing MPT (Mobile Phone Tools) -> info and discount codes have
been added to my MPT page and are also posted at -> http://www.howardforums.com/showpost.php?p=6348765&postcount=4
(added to MPT) Installing/configuring MPT (Mobile Phone Tools) with USB cable My
previous instructions of How to connect a V710/E815/V3C to MPT
via USB Data Cable (and
enable Multimedia Studio) have been updated to include V3C/V3M info, and now can be used. Notes on V3C are
included in-line.... Note: SEEM EDIT
may be required for MultiMedia Studio to work.
(added to MPT) Installing/configuring MPT via Bluetooth My
previous instructions of How to connect a V710/E815/V3C to MPT
Bluetooth has been updated to include V3C/V3M info, and now can be used. Notes on V3C
are included in-line... Note: V3C/V3m may require a SEEM
EDIT for MultiMedia Studio to work.
(already on RING TONE)Making custom ringtones... The same
information I have on my RINGTONE page still
applies to the V3C/V3M.
Making custom pictures/wall paper...
The same information I have on my Graphics page still applies to the V3C/V3M. However, while the V3C/V3m's screen size is still 176x220,
the area taken up by soft menu keys, banners, Verizon UI, etc.. results in a different
portion of the graphic being visible.
added to Phone Bluetooth page) Using Bluetooth OBEX File Transfers to
copy files to/from the phone... No version of Verizon's V3M firmware supports
this. For V3C phones with Verizon's GATW_01.0F.02 firmware this works out of the box with NO SEEM EDITS
NEEDED and allows you to by-pass using MPT and Get-it-Now to add ringtones/pictures
to your phone.. instructions/walk through of how is still to come...
For now, if your PC's bluetooth device uses the Widcomm drivers, double click on
My Bluetooth Places icon, and consult your Bluetooth device's documentation. For phones with Verizon's GATW_01.0F.03 firmware or GATW_01.0F.04
upgraded by the store... this does NOT work. The .03/.04
firmware does NOT support OBEX File Transfers, and a seem edit can NOT fix this.
For Bluetooth OBEX File Transfer support, your phone must have the GATW_01.0F.02
firmware, or the LEAKED GATW_01.0F.04 that you flashed at home.
(already on BitPim page) Info on setting up BitPim... the
same as the BitPim info I already have for the V710/E815...
so use the Navigation link on the left for BITPIM
to Express Network) Getting DUN to work... See also the HOW TO page
Free WAP -> See the HOW TO
Instructions on how to
edit the Homepage and setup free WAP. Written by Phreakish
for V3C users, this should also apply to V710 and E815...
Enable Vibrate Then Ring... see Verizon V3C Vibrate
THEN Ring SOLVED!!!! It is a Seem Edit to Seem 2742, Record 1, Bytes (h) 90 (note: in this case 7A is not high enough, you
must use 90), find Offset 7B, turn
bit 3 off,
bit 4 on.
What Bluetooth dongle to get for your PC see the FAQ as that
info still applies.
