    Marco, or whoever you are, LOL, please feel free to put your own complete instructions in here. I am attempting to put together some trouble shooting tips for those who need them. If they can be made better I would appreciate it and then I will adjust the first post accordingly.

    Thanks! :)

    Nothing happened at all. No vibration, zip. Had alrady taken out battery earlier, and the lights just flash on and off, on and off. Followed instructions above, beginning with again removing the battery, waiting, and pushing the three buttons together but ... nothing. Now screem is black after flashing for like ten mnutes. What is wrong here?! Haven't delted anything today, worked fine until I bought a new charger yesterday. It acts like it charged it but ???

    This worked out good for me. All i had to do is take out my battery for 3 minutes and then press the volume up ; call button ; and power button! then click ; Select wipe data / factory to reset & then click reboot phone now.

    The only bad thing about it was that i lost all my contacts , and messages , and calls . :(

    But i'm glad that i have my phone working again . i missed it the 30 minutes i didnt know what to do. :D
