    Can you get to the phones recovery menu by holding down volume whilst powering on?

    If that app keeps Force closing, you may need to do a factory reset. :(

    Can you plug the device into your PC, what happens?

    Yes i can but nothing happens.I have inserted my sim and it will sometimes pick up my wireless network or let me read contacts but thats it

    You can't even open the apps menu or the market without the FC happening? I'll be honest and say that it doesn't look good.

    Do you know if USB Debugging was enabled at all?

    Yeah, it is a cracking wee phone.

    Talk to your brother and ask if it was rooted, if it was, there's a good chance we might be able to do something.

    Hi mate,just to let u no i sorted it.Because the phone would still receive calls i rang it to access my missed calls list.From here i got to my key pad and went to change keypad theme which got me to the android market and from there i uninstalled all the apps he downloaded.The apps where go locker and it now seems to be working fine.Im really pleased with myself seeing how im not a technical wizz
