Just an update:
Vodafone wouldn't accept my Huawei G300+ for warranty because I never bought it from them (got the phone unlocked from eBay). They can't send it away for warranty if the phone was not on their system to begin with. Huawei's direct phone number was no use either. They told me to take the phone to Vodafone to have them send it away.
So I took the phone to a repair shop. After trying for three weeks, they told me they couldn't fix the phone. It's something to do with the boot loader on the phone - it got completely corrupted and they can't force the boot firmware to overwrite and fix it. Apparently for some phones it can be done, but not Huawei. So now I'm looking into a new phone.
You have to have a massive fight with Vodafone for a refund. I would go in to another store, and say that the battery ran out or something and now it wont turn on at all. Do not mention that it is unlocked, and that usually works
A WARNING TO ALL G300 OWNERS! Please Read! (The Flash Memory Problem!)
If you have a problem with your G300, and you haven't checked your flash, please do that first and then tell us what you have. Then we know what the main cause of the problem might be, and it saves you time. Of course, if it doesn't turn on at all this does not apply. Thanks
