This morning I woke up and noticed the phone was turned off. I turned it on and after entering my PIN, I saw I was connected to my operator. Seconds later the screen went blank. The cell phone had shut down. Now, that's all it does anymore. I took it back to the store to see what they had to say. I thought it was the battery since I get no reaction from the phone whatsoever when I try to recharge it: no nice indicators on the display, nothing.
The guys at the store took a look and told me it was probably a software error, not the battery. Since it's out of warranty, this would cost me € 119 to fix! Obviously I'd rather get a new phone altogether if I can't sort this problem out.
The phone is running SmartPhone 2003, but it has been doing that for well over a year now. It's also been working fine up until now, apart from some occasional quirks that are solved by removing the battery.
Does anyone have any idea what's going on?
