    So, I've been having trouble with my phone's battery the past few days (ever since it's been ghost calling the *22899 number and updating my PRL).

    Anyway, I just got home, turned on my screen. I went into a menu to see something and the phone did this... (What is this?)

    What is this?

    Obviously, I will be taking this phone back to Best Buy tomorrow.

    The phone will not turn back on. I did not pull the battery.

    You should attempt to pull the battery.
    This could have been a memory error in the phone.
    So taking out the battery will flush the memory. (GOOD THING).
    Let me know how it goes after.

    Maybe. But you should try this first. It could have been an error with an external source on your phone like an app. or something like that. Let me know what happens.
    BTW:
    There is nothing bad that can happen by taking out the battery!

    Yea I would try a battery pull first and if that doesn't work get it replaced. It appears to be some kind of problem with the lcd's ribbon cable connection to the mobo though to me so it may actually be hardware, but there is always that possibility it's software related.

    I have the phone plugged in, and it won't turn on at all.

    Isn't it just easier to bring it to Best Buy and show them that it won't turn on? I am also gonna bring them a picture of this screen.

    I don't want any problems down the line.

    Thats fine.
    But did you try the battery first?
    They might ask you that too.

    Pulling the battery out does no harm to the phone. Go ahead and try it. :)

    It turned back on, it dialed *22899 and stopped after 14 seconds. Now what?

    Perfectly? No such thing. It ran so well the other day before this stupid auto-dialing of *22899 that I didn't ask for.

    All of my settings and screens are back. I just don't know if the battery is draining like it did before. I imagine that it still is - it seems to be tanking.

    My JuiceDefender Ultimate used to read over x2.00, and it's now reading a lame x1.66 - please help me. Thanks.

    (*228 will not call.)

    I didn't know which was more appropriate, because I've been having problems ever since the ghost dialing.
