I am using the key combinations vol+/- power on, but everytime I get a bright pink screen, although I did manage to get recovery ONCE. I am going to take the phone back to Vodafone AGAIN, but need to make my case. How should I raise the problem them?

Getting a bit fed up with this now, and my initial impression is proving to be erroneous.

Thanks, people.

What recovery are you using? If not TWRP, you should use it.

Install it in fastboot while connected to your computer, and then reboot, it should work after that.

It says you need an unlocked bootloader and I have no intention of doing this. Rooting was bad enough?

Why don't you want to unlock the bootloader? I'm not sure if there's a recovery built into the phone, but I think unlocking your bootloader may be the only way to do it.

Vol+- takes you to official firmware update and it looks for a "dload" folder located on the SD. If there's no sutch folder you get pink screen. You enter recovery by pressing just vol+ and pwr or get in fastboot mode by pressing vol- and pwr. :)

Ah clarity at last. In fact, I discovered vol/+ combined with the power key.
