    hello everyone!
    i live in Venezuela and bought an S2 back in march online because Samsung doesn't officially sell the phone here. at the moment, i didn't notice that it wasn't a normal S2 but rather the G variant. near the 20th of august, the phone died. i was using the music player with the phone locked, when the song ended, i tried to wake it to change the song but the phone wouldn't respond. i restarted the phone, but as it was booting up (with the S logo going round) the screen locked and took on a reddish hue and became stuck like that. after that, i took out the battery and tried to start it up again but the phone only heated up and drained the battery. i took the phone to a couple of samsung's official reapir shops and they told me the phone was dead.

    however, i got home and plugged the phone in and it started back up, only without any information on it, as if i had just taken it out of the box. then, 3 minutes later, the same red hue came on and the phone died again. it seems that if i wait a couple of hours before reinserting the battery i can revive the phone for a few minutes. i've changed the software from gingerbread to ics and back again many times, even changing the PIT using odin, but it still keeps failing.

    the company i bought it from gave me a 3 month warranty and the phone died 2 months after it expired, and Samsung Venezuela won't take my phone because it doesn't sell the S2 here, much less the G variant.

    is there anything i can do to get my phone back?

    (i've got pictures of the red screen if anybody wants them, i just can't post them yet because i'm a new member)

    Maybe it's damaged by some water that came into your phone.

    Nope, it's never gotten wet and it hasn't fallen from anywhere
