I am facing a peculiar problem while rebooting my phone. When I try to power the phone on, 8 out of 10 times, it gets stuck at the "M" sign and doesn't go beyond that. I have to take the battery out and then power it on again which usually makes it works (have to do that more than once sometimes, though). Any idea why it could be happening and how to solve it? Thanks.
Sounds to me like something has gone haywire...possibly some corrupted data. I'd do a factory reset. The best instructions I've seen are posted in the first post if the thread below. The whole thing might take you 30 minutes.
You could also use a Q-tip dipped in alcohol (only dampened, not drippy) to clean the contacts on both the battery and X. It doesn't take much to interfere with power transmission when all the parts are so small.
Yeah. 1-800-922-0204 from another phone, preferably a non-Verizon number. Customer Service. You will probably have to go through, or pretend to go through, some of the steps here... but they should be able to help you out.
BTW how sad is it that I know that number off the top of my head?
