I have a Vario on T-Mobile in the UK. It's been fantastic for the last 16 months but, on Friday, did somethign strange. I'd sync'd it with my PC and had left it on to charge via the USB to the PC while I was still working on the PC. I got the disconnected device sounds from the PC and the phone and since then it's done nothing.
It won't charge, either via the PC or mains USB cable.
The PC doesn't recognise it.
It won't swith on unless I remove the battery and re-insert it. I swith the phone back on and the T-mobile startup page reappears, fades, and the screen then goes black again.
I've tried to hard reset at this point and get the blue Windows mobile screen before it too, fades and the screen goes black.
I've spoken to T-mobile and they've confirmed I can claim a repair or replacement under the product's 2 year warranty but wanted to know
1) what's caused this fault?
2)Anyone had similar?
3) What's the prognosis for a fix?
I'm due an upgrade in 6 weeks and it seems a bit ridiculous that T-mobile may send me a replacement phone and I then claim an upgrade to a Vario 2 or a N95 a few days later.
Any thoughts would be most appreciated.
