Default please help 8310 curve

Please Login to Remove!

OK- so my buddy gave me a while back a curve 8310 for ATT. The device would basically just power on and then stay on the hourglass for hrs on end. From talking to people they basically told me the device was dead on arrival. Last week I tried playing with it again and loaded some software onto it and it actually went to the menu screen! I was excited until I put in a valid sim card. It then powered on and basically stayed on the hourglass. What did the sim card do that now it wont get to the main screen. Any suggestions? Thanks!

No idea. I'd try to wipe the device with JL_Cmder and reload another OS. If it does it again, I'd be done with it.
