    Hi all,only had the phone 5 days.Due to battery life i tend to switch it off overnight.Powered it on this morning(i was half awake!) and it hasn't booted to the home screen?Instead there's a white screen with three androids on skateboards at the bottom and i have to choose one of four options?Fast boot,recovery,clear storage or simlock?Why has it done this?Or how have 'i' done this lol.I've left the phone in this state so would a fairly quick answer if possible as i need to use the phone,cheers!

    I'd recommend a battery pull and try booting the phone again

    You get to that screen by holding volume down when you turn on the phone :)

    no need to pull the battery, just select reboot

    Maybe the battery is drained?

    Maybe the "volume down" button is stuck in. Try pressing the "volume up" button to test this, because both buttons have a "see-saw" arrangement.
