    I got this phone last December and I love it!!! BUT....yesterday I went to check to see if I had any messages and for some reason it had turned itself off. When I went to turn it back on...it wont. It just keeps vibrating every couple of seconds and never actually turns on. I did a battery pull. No luck. Plugged it in incase the battery died. No luck. Plugged in without the battery it still does the vibrations and never turns on. I am seriously about to smash this phone out of frustration. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Id like to keep this phone and not go out any buy something else but if i cant fix this quick its going into the trash. HELP!!!!

    There isn't any type of warranty left. I guess unless Samsung themselves have one. I guess I'll have to look into that. Id much rather figure out how to fix it though.

    Should have 1 year warranty from factory. Pull the battery and see if your water indicator is pink. If not, take it back to the your carrier for replacement. If it is pink, then you are probably out of luck.

    Sounds like a stuck power button if it's continually vibrating. Try gently needling out the area around the power button

    Have you hooked it up to Kies yet to attempt a restore?

    Mine did the same thing. AT&T warrantied it. Not sure what happened. Completely stock device, no damage ever, no exposure to moisture. Plugged it into the factory charger to charge, and a couple hours later it was doing that .
