    Default Moto V3 can't charge

    Battery can't be charged no matter what. What should I do? Send for service?

    Or any suggestions?

    Try changing the charger first.

    judging from the trade in prices of a V3, you might be better off getting a new phone.. =)

    Check the battery. If it's slightly bloated, it's the battery problem.

    the V3 can be charged via USB. use a standard USB cable and hook it up to ur pc and see how it goes.. of cos u gotta install the drivers and software tat comes with the phone for it to work.

    if you are using a mac, you do not need to load the software
    also try using another battery

    Phone doesn't have a CDROM inside.

    But I downloaded the driver from internet, but can't run it.

    You don't really need to install the software. Without the software installed your PC will "complain" that it cannot find the driver for the new device that has been attached to the USB port. Simply cancel the prompt to install the driver. Charging will still carry on (assuming your battery is still in working condition).

    That's a 6-sigma phone you have there. Yours must be the few in a million that can't work. Consider RMA the phone.

    wow...crises
    if it were me, I would simply take my phone down to the motorola service center. ask them to put it on a charger that is known to work. if no work, ask them to put in a different battery that is known to work. if still no work, leave it with them...

    why put yourself through the ringer on something quite simple TS
    good luck

    Go send it back to the service centre. It's at Plaza Sing.

    Been using my K1 for sometime now, and I find that I kinda prefer Motorollas to Nokias now...
