Question about Motorola Mobility W315 Cellular Phone
My motorola w315 was dead over the weekend because i left my charger at work. now that i've plugged it in though, it won't turn on. instead of saying battery charging on the external display like it usually does, it just lights up, then goes out, then lights up again, etc. when i open the phone the screen just displays the motorola powering on logo. i tried taking out the battery and putting it back in, but it's still doing the same thing. i've had it plugged in for over an hour now and it still won't turn on. (it would usually be able to turn on immediately when i plugged it in.) i tried holding down the power button for a while too, but that didn't do anything. (the phone is only a few months old and serviced through alltel, which unfortunately doesn't have a store here in chicago where i could take it to. i usually charge it every other night, and don't make many calls on it, but it goes dead quickly because i'm always semi-roaming...)
My husband's w315 is doing the same. This phone is a replacement sent to us because the original w315 I purchased for him had a problem with the screen. (It went blue and never displayed another thing!) When we rec'd this replacement, it worked fine until we had to charge it. They don't send a new battery with the replacements, you have to use the one out of your original phone. Soooooooo, back to the battery/charging problem. We have been to our local Cellular South store, and been given 3 new batteries & 1 new charger. Guess what.......the problem is still there!!!! We have now been instructed to file a warranty claim on this replacement w315 that we rec'd to replace our original w315!!!!!! I've gone to Motorola's web-site for help, but help I did not find. Thus.....here I am! Personally speaking, I'm not a fan of the w315.

Mine does exactly the same but mine is a sony ericsson W550I and won't turn on atall sometimes there it a little red light at the top but not all the time and i have tried all the things you have but still the same it doesn't work and I don't no what to do to it but i think the best thing to do is take it to a shop to get it fixed but if it costs more to have it fixed then the phone is worth buy a new one well thats what i am goin to do
