    Haha! :D

    No mate. it's a useful phrase for people when you know they've screwed a computer or phone up through their actions and you don't want to say it's their fault when they insist on a diagnosis.

    To be honest, there could be a number of reasons that it either didn't boot or got stuck in a loop. The nice thing about Android is that it's a pretty hardy beast. Bet you were looking for some toilet tissue when it happened though. :)

    I have no idea what causes it but its happened to me a couple of times. The only way I could get it to turn on was to boot into recovery and reboot from there.

    Can I have a dunce hat too. I did get the idiot joke either.

    thing was i hadn't done anything to it. would have been less concerned if i'd been tinkering....

    one minute i was sending a text, put the phone down for 30 minutes to do some work, picked it up and nothing!

    I wouldnt worry about it too much syd. At the end of the day, its a computer, and computers crash occasionally

    There are 10 types of people in this world: Those who understand binary, and those who don't.

    I had the same happen to me about once a week when I first got it.
    I could not get phone to upgrade thu Kies either.
    Was about to get supplier to upgrade software, but tried Kies one last time.
    Phone upgraded to a new version (was still 2.3.3 but different version) and it hasn't "blacked out" again since.
    So software upgrade may fix it.
