    Yes, timbone, it appears that the device has become damaged. The lack of functionality in 2 of the 4 real buttons points to that. The very short battery life tells us also that some of the damage is in the charging circuit (unless you feel a lot of warmth/heat when the device is not being used, that would indicate something freewheeling such as a sync loop, etc).

    You have some choices, of course; I'm sure you've already contemplated all that. ;). As for me, I'd take it once to a local cell phone repair place and have it looked at. I wouldn't fool with it myself, but that's just me.

    Perhaps it's time for a replacement, unless your provider has another resolution for you.
