View Full Version : Motorola Razr V3 Connectivity via USB

Hey guys. I am new here and would love some help with a new Motorola Razr I just picked up.

I am totally unfamiliar with how it is supposed to interact with my computer. I am home for Fathers day and using an older G4 without Bluetooth. As such, I would like to connect the phone using a USB cable. The goal is to transfter a mp3 ring tone I created using Quicktime Pro.

When I connect the phone to the G4, the phone does not mount. Do I need some special driver/software? Do I need to use isync? I really have no idea what I'm doing and would love some help.

Many thanks.

-Ted

I sync will allow contacts and dates to be transferred between the machines. The Razr should have come with a CD that contains some utilities for doing what you require if memory serves.

I've never tried syncing via USB but to transfer from via BT I use the browse device feature that the BT transfer utility has. I don't know what the equivalent for USB would be. Although a very mundane and patronising answer have you looked in the phones manual for help?

Thanks Bob,

I have read the phone's manual. Interestingly, it only discusses transferring via bluetooth and only from the phone to other devices. Also, the phone does not come with software of any kind... Very odd.

I have bluetooth on my home computer. I may just have to wait until I get home to activate it.

Anyone have any other info?

I hate you by the way.

Me = about to get a RAZR
Verizon = calls about a special deal
Dad = exits the web browser and I dont get a RAZR
Me = goes to store and gets Moto V710

Even though qualitywise the V710 is the best phone out there, I WANT A RAZR!

I recently tried to mount my nokia by the USB cable that came with it, thinking that it would show up as an external hard drive. It didn't, so that's probably a quirk of the symbian operating system.

The software at the bottom of the page is similar to what your phone should have come with. My V3 in the UK came with a CD called Phone Tools Lite. I haven't installed it but assume this would do what you need. I advise you call the place you bought it and enquire about the CD.

Thanks for all the info guys. Here's an update...

I spent a ton of time trying to figure out the deal with the mobile phone tools in the US. Turns out, the software is only compatable with PCs. Since I'm 300 miles from my home computer with bluetooth, I went to the Apple store today to play around with some of their Bluetooth enabled computers. After some time, I was able to get my razr to pair with a G5 imac identical to mine. It doesn't offer the transfer speed of the USB but at least I know my mac and razr will get along!

I'm going to follow up on the USB issue, but the confirmed bluetooth connectivity is a load off.

Thanks again.

i got a v3 razr last week (for $99 at best buy!). but it didn't come with any software like you guys in the UK get. i managed to iSync my razr with a G5 (without bluetooth) running OS X.3, using a USB cable, but i was only able to sync contacts from the address book (i didn't try the iCal).

but what i WANT to do is transfer files from my computer to the phone (homemade ringtones, wallpapers, etc) which i cannot seem to do. i was thinking the phone would mount on the desktop, like a cd. but nope...nada. the Motorola Mobile Phone Tools software appears to be only for Windows, not Mac. Half the reason i bought the razr was so that i can make my own mp3 ringtones, etc.
information on mac/razr file transfer (either USB or BT) is darned near non-existent. i'm just hoping to find out if anyone has managed to do it.
please lemme know, via email or on this forum.

has anyone had any luck with this?

thanks so much!

has anyone had any luck with this?Just got my black razor v3 (for FREE!!!) last week. Transfering over BT is simple. Enable BT discovery on the phone, and scan for new devices on the Mac. Pair them up. Then just browse the device from the BT menu in OS X.

According to this link (http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/isync/) the RAZR should be able to sync contacts and calandars, but I can only get the contacts. When I select the "Calandars" button in iSync it says (see image below) and when I open iCal then click the tab again, it still doesn't work. And the Help Viewer says that if you have iTunes 4.8 or later, to use that to sync, what is the deal? :confused:

Nah, we're british! :D

American cellphone operators seem to be atrocious - cost, lack of deals, crappy handsets... It's the only thing I'd say britain is ahead of america on, technology-wise...

I've had the V3 Razr for about 3 months, it looks nice, but it's the worst phone I've ever owned! My old Sony Ericsson worked a lot better with OS X - I could send text messages from the address book!

yeah, i got my Razr like a week ago (99 at best buy too!). got home and synched it up to my Powerbook no problem. Edited my mp3s to make custom ring tones and transfered them wirelessly over to my phone no problem. Browse device in your bluetooth menu on the finder bar, connect to your phone and you should see folders and stuff, you just upload you mp3 to the music folder.

yeah, but see, i don't have a bluetooth mac! it's an older G4 with no bluetooth. i have a mini-USB cable, which i used, and can indeed get the address book contacts synced easily...but there's no icon mounted on the hard drive or anything that would allow me to transfer files like mp3s or pictures. my question is, how do i transfer files to my Razr via a USB cable? i'll check out that link above. thanks for that!
a coworker of mine suggested i upload the files i want up to an ftp site and then type in the url on my phone and download them that way, but that seems kinda laborious.
if i got one of those USB bluetooth adapters, do you think that might make it work? i'd still need to get the bluetooth software, wouldn't I? there's no bluetooth settings or anything on my system preferences panel...

I have been considering that software and cable kit, for a moto v60s. what is the good and bad? can you tell me more? did it work with 10.3 and 10.4? I am very curious!
Thanks.

lol, quality wise? blah. Verizon has a hard time making phones that aren't crippled out of the wazzu. You have to "hack" iSync just to be able to transfer contacts over. And forget about sending pictures and mp3s to the phone. Verizon disabled the OBEX therefore you must pay Verizon to store the song or picture onto their servers then download it to your computer from the interweb. I swear, if I wasn't hurting for money I'd have gotten off the plan with the rest of the family and go Cingular.

Yes, it would work for sure as long as you get one supported by Apple (all the name brand ones are).

You already have all the software you'll need (OS X).

I can sync my ical with my razor and transfer files I can even sync from my contact to my phone but how do I sync from my phone contacts to my mac?

Andrman
Jul 20, 2005, 11:27 PM
Is this with BT or USB?

I think using iSync may just be one-way with the V3, from the computer to the phone. Make a test contact on the phone and then run a sync.

I personally use an app called OnSync to sync my contacts between my phone and computer; it goes both ways and has tons of options and ways of recording to the phone and Adress Book, or Entourage or whatever you choose. Right now it requires a USB cable to be used with the V3, but they are standard easy-to-find cables. (Bluetooth support for the V3 is coming)

Well all I can suggest is that you make sure BT is turned on on the RAZR and that it is discoverable, this is only done 30 seconds at a time manually (see manual or visit the connections preference pain on the RAZR which is under options or something similar then select bluetooth and navigate from there). Use the BT setup assistant on the mac to pair with the phone then use the BT transfer wizard to send data back and forth. You may have to keep making the phone discoverabe if it isn't automatically seen by the mac.

So is anyone having issues where they used to be able to browse the phone over bluetooth and cannot anymore? One-by-one push to the Mac works, but the Mac can't pull from the phone. BT File Exchange just kinda chokes.

First, go through the entire pairing process so that your Mac and RAZR can communication with one another and you are able to use iSync, then...

Go to Applications/Utilities/Bluetooth File Exchange

Just select the file you want to send (I have tried with a photo, I am assuming that MP3s and videos will work too)

You will be asked which device to send it to... select your RAZR.

A warning will come up on your RAZR asking if you want to accept the transfer.

DONE. So simple I almost kicked myself when I figured it out. Ohh, and images for the wallpaper are best at 176x220, so do a little editing to get them just right.

After pairing and re-pairing the v3 with my iMac, I'm noticing that if I set it to any device, the Mac thinks the Razr V3 is a headset not a phone. That is why address Book will not dial out or send an SMS via the phone. Has anyone found a work around? Is this an error with the Motorola Razr or is this a bug in OS X's bluetooth setup utility? I am using mac OS 10.4.4. and yes I did have the setup software select the v3 as a mobile phone too. Either way address book wont dial. iSync worked however. It synced iCal and my addressbook but, names with multiple numbers had each number entered as a separate listing giving me duplicate names with different numbers.

I've just bought 5 razrs for my family--all those great review--but if you read carefully you'll find lots of complaints near the end of the articles about the awful UI and the totally inadequate address book. Still some articles and 'help you select a phone sites' say it has PIM interface.

Here is what I've learned: in the UK the phone had a "cube" address book that listed up to (I think) nine numbers for one name. The cube turned kind of like when you switch users on the mac. As far as I can tell that isn't released in the US. Anyone in the UK want to share with the folks across the pond?

The US phone book can be set to show only the primary. This shows only one name per person. Choose view under the person's name and you can scroll through the other numbers. It is clunky and inconvienent.

The phone book (sometimes they call it an address book) does not allow you to enter an address or any kind of note. The calendar is the same. You can't enter the address of the place you have an appointment or a note about it. The reminder alarm, however, is nice. You can set it to days or hours prior to the meeting and the phone blinks a little red light and makes a very discreet beep about every 5 minutes until you tell it to stop.

The phone syncs painlessly using isnc, both calendar and phone book but the software/firmware on the razr only lets it sync the information in those very limited fields. I've used blue tooth to transfer audio, pictures but don't think there is a way to add a data file to use as a to-do list. Any 3rd party software out there to do that would be appreciated. It seems crazy to have a phone that can text message but can't leave itself a message. I suppect they want you to use air time to send yourself a note or access the internet. More money for them.

The voice recognition feature works really well if you don't want to dail anyone with a 6 syllable name unless you can talk very fast. Anyway you can avoid the address book a lot by training the phone to recognize short names for your contacts. You find the person in the address book, choose view, choose record voice, press the right side button, say the name quickly, it asks you to say it again and usually your done. Sometimes it says it can't do it but that just means you spent too much time saying "her royal majesty the queen of england" Better settle for "queen".

For a person who wants the media functions its cool (I don't. I have a laptop computer and pay for internet already) If you want BASIC features like a real address book, a to do list, and to attach notes to your appointments, it is a LOUSY phone. I do not want or need a pda. Also you can't disable the buttons and menu selections that take you on line.

I think Motorala should have to give us an update to fix the basic functions. They have sold millions. Write them and complain.

Oh my @*#&ing god. I love you. I have a V220, which I bought without really researching if it supported Macintosh, and I slapped myself several times when I realized I couldn't get picutres off of it or put ringtones on it, and I fumbled around with iSync and Mobile Phone Tools (which doesn't work very well on Windows) for hours before admitting defeat and keeping my picture-count low.

I love you.

Trying to connect the razr with my iMac G5 using VPC can anyone help, its not working :(

installed the phone tools and all

It won't work at all, in all likelihood. The Motorola phone tools for Windows creates a virtual serial port to communicate with the hardware directly, something VPC can't pass to the host machine. Also, since Macs don't have serial ports and haven't had them in ages, there's no easy way to fake one, because the necessary underlying components aren't there. The Bluetooth stack is specialized to do a similar "virtual serial port" connection, but it's all neatly packaged in the specialized hardware.

For those of you looking for a free way to use USB for file transfers, the short answer is that there isn't one. It's not easy to do this on a Mac, and Motorola phones are not fully spec-compliant anyway. There are USB utilities out there for cell phones, but the combination of Motorola handsets and Macintosh computers is a no go over USB. Bluetooth is your best bet, and BT adapters are $20...which is an inexpensive and easy alternative.

Preparing Pictures on your Mac

I happen to have Photoshop Elements 3.0 for the Mac. You can use any program that will allow you to reduce the size of your photo to 9 kB or smaller. Seven to 10 kilobytes seems to work best. Once your photo is prepared, proceed to the section called Preparing your Macintosh.



Open Photoshop Elements

Open the picture you want to sent to your Razr.

Click on Image, drag down to Resize and over to Image Size.

Under Document Size, change width to 3 inches. The height will automatically change to the correct number.

Click OK.

Click on File and drag down to Save As

Make a folder on your desktop to save the picture in.

Repeat steps 1-7 for each picture you want to send to your Razr.

Make sure Photoshop Elements is open.

Have all of the pictures open that you changed the size of.

Do the following to each of those pictures. Click on File and drag down to Save for Web

The Save for Web window will appear.

Change the Settings to JPEG Medium.

Click OK.

Save the pictures in the folder you just created on your Desktop.


Preparing your Macintosh

Note: I am using Macintosh Operating System version 10.4.6.

Plug your Razr into your Macintosh. (I took my Razr into my local computer parts/repair store. The man looked at the port in the Razr, and came back with a cable that fit the Razr on one end and had a USB connection on the other end.)

Open the Razr.

Open System Preferences. In the Hardware section click on Bluetooth.

The Bluetooth window will appear.

Click on Turn Bluetooth On.

Put a check next to Discoverable.

Put a check next to Show Bluetooth status in the menu bar.

Quit System Preferences.

Look in the menu bar in the top right corner of your screen for the Bluetooth symbol. Click on it and drag down to Set Up Bluetooth Device.

The Bluetooth Setup Assistant window will appear.

Click on Continue.

It will ask you to Select Device Type.

Click on Mobile Phone.

Click on Continue.

It will probably say “No phones have been found. Please make sure your phone is “discoverable.”

Now it is time to get your Razr Bluetooth ready.




Preparing Your Razr

On the Razr keypad, push the button that is shaped like a circle.

You will see nine icons on the screen.

Click on the icon in the top, left corner. It’s called Settings.

Scroll down to Connection and select it.

Under Incoming Call you will see the Bluetooth Symbol on the right. Select it.

Under Bluetooth Link select Setup.

Under Setup, Find Me will be highlighted, so all you have to do it select it.

You will get a message that says, “Bluetooth Power is Off. Temporarily Power On?” Click on Yes.

It will say, “Bluetooth Powering On.”

Then it will say it will be Discoverable: 60 seconds. (this means you have one minute to go back to your Macintosh and get it to find your Razr. The Bluetooth Setup Assistant window should still be open on your computer monitor.

You should see Motorola Phone under Mobile Phones.

Click on Continue.

The next window will say Gathering information about your device. When it is finished, it will say Gathering additional information complete. Click Continue to proceed with configuring this device.

Click on Continue.

The next window will be entitled, Pairing with the mobile phone.

You will see a six digit number in the middle of the window.

Go back to your Razr. It will say Bond with [the User name of your Macintosh]? Select Yes.

The Razr will then ask you “Enter Bluetooth Passkey:”

Enter in the six digit number you see on your Macintosh. Select OK.

Go back to the Macintosh.

It may say There were no supported services found on your device. Click Continue.

The next window, entitled Conclusion, will say Congratulations! Your mobile phone is now set up to use your computer’s Bluetooth features.

Click on Quit.

Now your Razr and Macintosh recognize each other.

How to Send Files from your Macintosh to your Razr

On the Macintosh, click on the Bluetooth symbol in the menu bar in the top, right corner of the monitor.

Drag down to Browse Device... A window entitled, Browse Files, will appear.

Click on Browse.

A window called, Browsing..., will appear. Click on the appropriate folder (In this case it is picture.)

Click on Send.

Maneuver your way to the folder on your Desktop where you saved the prepared pictures.

Select the pictures you want to send to your Razr using the following tips: Hold down the Shift key and click on the top picture, and then on the bottom picture. See how it selects all of the pictures in the list?

Now hold down the Command key (it has an apple on it) and click on the top picture and the third picture. See how it didn’t select the second picture?

Click on Send.


The pictures are now on your Razr! Congratulations! :D

Hello everybody!

I just bought a non-Itunes unlocked motorola 3vi. I have a Mac and the phone tools software is only for PC. I can't seem to get isync to read it. The micro SD reads on my desktop. I bought the datapilot. but i can't get that to work either. does anyone have any ideas or am I just SOL.

Hi all,
I apologise in advance for my ignorance when it comes to correct terminology.
I discovered a way to access the 'files' on my Motorola Razr V3x via USB cable on my Mac G5. I am hoping it would work with other Motorolas & other Macs because there seems to be a lot of questions out there regarding Motorolas & Macs and accessing, transferring etc. because it obviously isn't as strait forward as most things are with Macs.

Anyway - TRY THIS - connect your Motorola to your Mac via USB, stay with the Motorola, go into your menu & to "Connection" then "USB Settings" change your Default Connection to Memory Card. Back or clear out & turn off your Motorola. Then turn on your Motorola (ensure it is still connected via USB to your Mac). You should get an Icon on your desktop named "RAZR" or perhaps something else related to the name of your Motorola. You can now access all the files & stuff on your Motorola as though it's a USB stick (or something similar).

OK, so, IF NOT - you may have to open Macintosh HD or something else in Finder & you might see another icon there relating to your mobile.
OR I guess another thing you could try is changing your Default Connection to Data connection & following the same steps - this is not the way it worked for me but I guess you never know when it comes to electronic devices.

Well, I hope this helps someone out there & I'm sorry it's taken so long to find an answer - there probably aren't many out there with what many would consider to now be an "old" phone.
