    So I got a good deal on a Huawei Ascend (m860). I bought it off a guy trying to switch to Verizon from Metro, I took it to the store and verified it wasn't stolen. The only problem was it has a password and I lost the guy's contact information.

    I cant install any apps that would allow me to boot it into recovery mode and flash a ROM with the original stuff onto it.

    The SD card slot may or may not be broken.

    How do I get this phone up and running?

    Any advice, I'm looking for help.

    So the SD Slot is not broken, I can plug the phone into the computer and view and modify the files on the SD card.

    Could I perhaps put a ROM onto the SD Card and then try to boot into recovery mode?

    That would be my approach, whether flashing it back to stock or using a custom ROM. I'd rather start clean than with someone else's potential issues, personally.
