I bought my Nokia 3230 about 4 months ago on a visit to Ukraine. I came back from Ukraine (to Canada) 2 months ago....The phone has been dead for 2 months now. Shortly after I came, when I tried to turn it on..I would only see a white flash (3 secs or so) on the screen (happens before it starts up), but there was no startup....Curious thing was if I pressed the "turn on" button, and while the screen was still white, plugged it in to charge...It would stay white for as long as It was plugged it. When I plugged it out, it dissapeared. Now it's totally dead....It doesn't even react to the "turn on" button....If anyone knows what the problem with it is, I'd really like to know...I've grown to like the phone and would not like to throw it away.

Generally this phone is taking 2-3 minutes during start up.If your phone takes longer than this there might be some problem.So, my comment is to format by following this

1. Maybe there's a virus.
2. Often restart can drain the battery.
Format it by pressing the green key or call key + no. 3 + asterisk(*) at the same time. But 1stly, turn off ur fone, then b4 the NOKIA logo appears, hold these following keys altogether. You will see the "Formatting" word afterwards..
Format it by typing *#7370.
