Have you tried removing the battery for 30 seconds and then reinserting it?

If a battery pull doesn't work then it's pretty well broken. If it's still under warranty you may be able to get it exchanged at no cost.

Sounds like you're up an unsanitary tributary without means of transportation my friend. Been there. I hope you either have insurance or a warranty to fall back on.

it does sound like the device has been liquid damaged or dropped severely for this to happen. did either of those happen? take the back off and look at the battery and the indicator under the battery, do they look red/pink?

that sucks t-mobile is jerking you. sprint doesnt charge for replacements that are covered by insurance (so they say). you can always sell it on ebay even a broke pearl should fetch you a few dollars maybe enough to pay for your insurance. but i have never had to file a claim my treo never broke and the pearl is new. so knock on wood.
good luck.

Sprint will ask you for defective phone back due to it will usually have to be sent out and remanufactured.

wow did they specify why you had to pay even though you are paying for the insurance every month? because i'm only paying for the insurance now so i WON'T be stuck in that situation

Angry This is sooo frustrating!

I am soo glad that someone else is going through the same thing. My phone...for no reason...just decided to go berzerk today. I can push buttons, but nothing happens...I took the battery out and put it back in and the screen came on, but only the scroll would work and when I click it...nothing. It lights up when I get calls, but I can't answer them! I haven't dropped it or spilled anything on or around it...It was working fine this morning and out of nowhere..bam! I've only had it a few weeks...this is crazy!

That is unfortunate, with Verizon I only had to pay $50, and it wasn't a refurb.

I have Sprint and when my BB stopped working they took the old one and gave me a new one as simple as that. I didn't have to pay a dime. I don't have the insurance. I have the protection plan. I think I pay about $3.00 per month for it. I wouldn't have a BB or any expensive phone without it.
