Do you see the Huawei screen when you first turn the phone on?

Sounds to me like the LCD has failed. No solution for that other than replacement. That being the case, you probably won't have to worry at all about unrooting or otherwise reverting anything.

Hopefully you've synced your contacts with your Gmail account, which means you won't have to figure out how to save them from the phone. Also, if your PC has no trouble recognizing the phone and browsing the SD card, you should be able to backup anything you may have placed there.

The manufacturer warranty will cover it as long as there is no physical or water damage

Since the phone won't display anything, there's no way for them to check. I would say just take it in. Loss isn't covered under warranty, and if you have the insurance, you still have to pay a deductible.

yea, i jus called a store and its an extra 65 dollars for lost phones while insured. im just afraid if i take my phone in they'll say its rooted and they cant do anything about it. But its no way for them to check because my screen isnt showing.

Exactly. They can't prove anything, therefore they can't accuse you of anything. The only thing they can prove is that the screen won't display, so the only answer is warranty replacement. Make sure they don't try to skive off by giving you a refurb either, insist on a brand new phone.

I wouldn't think there should be a difference in charges. How long have you had your phone? I was assuming not very long, which is why I suggested making them give you a brand new one, as I've heard of stores giving refurbs for replacements, and "refurb" might mean a phone that was returned and has not actually been refurbished by the manufacturer, in which case I'd demand a brand new phone. I don't want someone else's potential problems, I want a clean slate if I'm getting a replacement.

By chance you should elect to accept a 'Refurbished' phone,1st check for an actual refurbish by going to Settings>About Phone>Device Info. That SHOULD tell how many times the phone has actually been refurbished.

Any idea where exactly this would be, or what it would say? I looked at mine but have no idea what it is I'm supposed to see.

After selecting device info, scroll down to the bottom of the page.It should say 'Refurbish Info',press & it says "Refurbish Counter".Mine says '0'.,thankfully.BTW,I'm with Cricket,if that makes any difference.

That might explain it. I don't have that option on my Metro phone. The last thing in that list is Warranty Date Code.

Well,that explains a lot then.CRICKET gets METRO's broken phones,&re-packages them w/a refurbish counter installed,starting @ZERO,since it is 'NEW' to the lucky purchaser w/CRICKET service.*

My ascend is doing something similar. Except it turns its self off, and then I can't power it back on. The screen just goes black. I have to take my battery out and leave it out anywhere from a few minuets, to a few hours. And I can't figure out why it's doing it... and my provider isn't talking...

That would be a different issue if it won't power on, but still a warranty issue.

My phone did the exact same thing today.. My screen went black for about 15 minutes before coming back on again.. and then when I would try to turn it on the screen wouldn't come up.. But my keyboard also stopped working.. Cricket said they couldn't help me even though I had insurance, Wtf! Anyways, I just did the factory reset on my phone & its working fine now.. So advice, Next time just do the factory reset and it should fix the problem.

Defective hardware, take it back to MetroPCS and attempt to recreate the problem.

I have same f.up phone. Never dropped it or got it near water. was working fine, then next time i pressed menu it was black. same deal everything works . Did the remove batt thingy, the up volume+send+power key thingy. nothing. now it doesn't want to stay on either. going to contact Huawei directly after this and see how far that gets me. Oh and I bought this phone from a friend so warranty is null. Happy fracking new year
