    I've used odin to update my firmware to Gingerbread 2.3.3, when it had said successful i unplugged the phone then phone shut off unexpectedly. Since then phone does not turn on AT ALL or respond to any buttons. Is there anyway i can unbrick my phone?

    Try pulling the battery, sd card, and sim card. Plug usb cord into your computer. Then while holding vol up + vol dwn plug your usb cable into your phone then put your battery in. That sometimes gets odin to recognize your phone which will allow you to flash.

    If you ever get a black screen with different colored dots all scattered all over then that's a good sign of life. Flash with odin when in that screen

    I was in the same situation couple of weeks ago. Flash went wrong and got hard bricked. Phone was dead. I send it in to get unbricked for $30 including flash to gingerbread. Got a phone back in 4 days including shipping. Send me PM and I can shoot you the contact details for the guy that did it.

    Ive tried what you have said and nothing what so ever and i have tried it more than once. Ive sent it to samsung and they have it for a week and a half so far, still waiting on the repair price. Do you know an estimate of how much it would be?, cause they are taking a while to figure it out
