Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3
When I turn my phone on it goes straight to a blue screen with the motorolla sign and at the bottom it reads "bootloader USB INIT" and I can't get out of it. Any suggestions!
This happens to phones that have had water damage or something else and a way that might make it work is to take the battery out for no more than 60 seconds and put it back in and push the *,# and power buttons at the same time and if the blue screen comes up, while on the screen push the buttons and hold them until it goes normal. it worked for me

Pressing 'power' and # and * at the same time will start the phone in this boot mode. It is used for preparing a phone for new software to be uploaded. If your phone is doing this the software is probably corrupted and you will not be able to recover. You may be able to have it flashed with new software at the store. (You can flash it yourself with a usb cable and some software found online if you are brave)

My free verizon motorola w755 did this after I dropped it in the pool. I was not ever expecting to get the phone to work again and had already gone back to my old razr when I noticed this thread on howard forums: http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?p=11659206
I flashed the phone, which I guess basically puts the OS/firmware back on there. All works fine now. Re-activated through account online and dialed *228. Sweet!

Get this Phone reflashed. Of course if you Dropped the Phone or if it went into water then Forget it about spending 35-50 Bucks on reflasing this phone. because it will go back to Boot Mode.
