    ok.. so last night i fell asleep and before i closed my eyes i seen my battery life on my phone. it was really low. so i figured hey its going to die. ill just recharge it back up tommarow morning. when i woke up, i tried charging it and the 4 buttons were blinking white? i did some research before posting and nothing has helped. i tried removing my sd card, i tried removing my battery and charged the phone WITHOUT the battery in it ( still didnt turn on, only blinked). i even left it charging all day today and nothing.... and i havent downloaded apps in the past week so i no i didnt catch a virus from an app.. i also noticed that this is a common problem for huawei ascend holders (researched). also the master reset method isnt working either, the whole pressing the power button, volume up and send button. can anyone help? :/...

    Did you root the phone or doing anything to it yet? If not you can take it back to the store because there is a one year warranty.

    Yeah it sound like the phone is bricked for whatever reason. Maybe when you were charging it up it took a power surge. I would let it charge with battery in obviously for about an hour then see what happens.

    However you can always take it back to the store you got it from because of the 1 year warranty.

    On a side note, if the TapOut was not such a POS i would brick mine on purpose, because my metro store only has the TapOut Ascends....

    neither Here nor There
    Also have the store check the battery. You might just have a defective battery.

    Very true...My GF went through 4 batterys on her ascend...Of course on the 4th one we found it was actually the ascend that had a faulty charging port. It would show on the screen it was charging, but never did charge the battery....

    alright... and by the way. i figured how to turn it back on. but now it wont even charge. i left it charging in the morning as i was in school. when i got home the battery level was still at 0%.. lame. what does defective phone even mean by the way? lmao. no way to fix it? and yea i tried replacing the phone once before. but they actually found the superuser app that auto downloads on yer phone system if it becomes rooted. so they couldnt replace it. i just want it fixed.... if not ill be going bak to the lame none droid phone "imprint".... LOL.

    You have to do a master reset. Cricket support will only tell you to get a new phone. Although I haven't done a hard reset thats how my boyfriend fixed my phone. If it works for you please pass on for anyone else who has problems with their Huawei Asend phone. Hope it helps o(^.^)o

    LOL, it will make it like if you took it out of the box when you purchased it, without customizing your phone. It won't fix the phone if it has an actual problem with it. And fixing "defected" phones, not sure, but it won't fix "defective" phones! :D

    Your phone randomly bricked? If a Hard Reset or a Factory doesn't do it, time to use your warranty.
