Galaxy Prevail Just Stopped Working, only 2 months old????
I have a Galaxy Prevail and just purchased it less than 2 months ago. Everything was working perfectly and all of a sudden yesterday it just went off and never came back on.
At first I just thought that it was in sleep mode, so I pressed the power button, expecting it to light up, but nothing happened. The last time I looked at it, it was charged more than halfway, so I wasn't sure why it would have died out so quickly, so I tried charging it for about 2 hours and it still wouldn't turn on. This is the first time it has happened. I took the battery out, waited a few minutes and still, nothing is happening. I have charged it overnight and still nothing this morning.
The phone is only 2 months old, something is very wrong for it just to quit working like this. Please help!

before you go out looking for the backup though try booting it to emergency mode first, should be hold down camera+volume down+and power until you see a samsung screen, if you do see a samsung screen it should boot into emergency mode no problem, if not sadly I think it's fubard. I find the prevail to be interesting for what it is they put way more of a cpu in it than really needed and it gets hot fast; my friend keeps his underclocked at 480 without performance issues, vs I want to say it runs at 800 by default. Than again I'm in Texas so heat is on my mind a lot with electronics that may not be related to your issue.
Good luck, sorry to hear about your device and the slow response.Swiss cheese android; the aged stuff, with huge holes.
