    Just pull the battery out and stick it back in. If nothing changes go to your provider.

    Yes, it is highly undesirable to drop any small electronic devices. Damage can be expected in that circumstance. Try the above suggestion with out dropping the next one.

    I think you have bad luck. I've had mine for the longest time and have never had any issues with durability.

    Depends on what you mean by formating. If DM recognizes the device you can back up your data.

    When I dropped mine, it did that. No help with the battery pull, but after about an hour it just up and worked fine again and has since. Give your poor traumatized phone a little time to recover.

    The internal components on mobiles are not designed the same way today as they were some 4 to 5 years ago. These days some mobiles just takes the slightest bump and they give you problems.
