Angry U8800 will not even try to boot. (Standard phone)

Hi, I have a new Huawei U8800 (Ideos X5) with Froyo on it. Had it about a week, I had to put my sim card in my old phone to retrieve some contacts.

I powered down the X5, waited til it was safely off, removed the battery, removed the sim, did the things I needed to on the other phone, replaced the sim in the X5, replaced the battery, pressed the power on... Nothing happens. It's as if the battery is not connected. I tried the power+vol++vol-, but again, absolutely nothing. I haven't dropped it or the battery.

I did try also to hook it up to USB to see if I could browse it (ofc I knew it wouldn't work, but doesn't hurt to try, right?) and put it on charge through an electrical outlet. Still nothing happening.

Is there anything more I can try?

Just in case, try this:

1) Power on without the sim card (but it shouldn't make a difference)


2) Power off then plug it in the power point charger overnight.

only things I can think of other than taking it back to where you bought it from for a replacement
