7100i wont boot
a buddy of mine just purchased a 7100i on ebay. It booted up fine the first time, with the ebay sellers sim card in. So i threw it on the charger.......
then, once my friend arrived, i manually turned off the power to the phone, by holding down the power button near the antenna. We then removed the battery, and replaced the sim card in the ebay bought 7100i.... .
well thats as far as we got, it shows the spinning hour glass icon, repeatidly, then as it changes to the yellow background displaying the NEXTEL text, it just sticks there and goes no further.
I attempted to install the new/ 4.1 OS on the phone, but since its stuck on the nextel (yellow boot screen) the DM doesnt even connect to the damn phone.
Any experts/ any one! got an idea
Re: 7100i wont boot
phone somehow now works, just kept jump starting the phone by touching the battery, then backing it off again. i know it couldnt be good for the phone, but it works!!!!
