The phone is unlocked, running B888, not rooted.
I was using the phone yesterday whilst still plugged into the power adapter and suddenly the screen went blank. Pressing the power button did nothing, also noticed the green light for charging was gone too. Basically the phone was completely dead. I have discoved however that if I take the battery out and then fire up the phone with just the power adapter it comes back to life and boots up, although in emergency mode only. If I then put the battery in, it says it's at 0% charge (despite having been nearly full when it went) and then starts to try and charge it. However after a couple of hours it was still showing 0% charge. If I then leave the battery in and try to reboot it, the phone is dead again. Take the battery back out and re-seat the cable and it boots back up into emergency mode again.
So basically if I try to boot up the phone with the battery in, it's as dead as a doornail; no lights, nothing, even with the charge adapter plugged in. If I boot it up without the battery via the charge adapter and then put the battery in, it registers as being dead as a doornail 0% charge and will not charge up.
So what do you think the cause of the problem is? Has the battery just suddenly died some how or is it the phone software that has corrupted or the phone itself that has developed a fault?
As a side note I took it back to the Vodafone shop and the chap there thought it was more likely the battery, but as it was unlocked he added that I had voided the warranty. So I won't be getting any help from them. Which seemed a little odd considering that they have been selling unlocks themselves. Anyway, unfortunately they didn't have any spare batteries for me to try out and nowhere else stocks the batteries because it's a Vodafone exclusive.
