I bought an s3500 a few days ago, but when I was passing some files with the bluetooth suddenly it died and I can't turn it on. I tried to charge it but it useless it doesn't even appear the battery icon

Hi, your phone frooze up due to excessive files sent to the phone memory with is to small for such content. What you have to do is to take the phone to a mobile phone technician to flash (the only way to restore the phone back) the phone and it will start working.
Make sure you accept bluetooth transfer on your micro sd card next time to avoid such problem.

Take care

My phone wont turn on properly. I try to turn it on and it freezes. It gets as far as the screen that says Nokia then the screen with 5 little dots that flash back and forth then it freezes on the second...

For resolving your Nokia N900 problem, I recommend a firmware replacement to reinstall the system software. Once these devices start acting silly, this is generally the way to fix them.

Full instructions and software are available here.

I hope that helps.

Distorted screen

Turns out it is a defect in the phone. I traded for another Lotus; it doesn't happen to all of them and hopefully it won't happen with my new one.

Touch screen

KateKiller here

Upon installing this God-forsaken Kate application last night while lying down in bed, I realized that my touch screen wouldn't respond in all programs other than the home screen.

Holy ****. My iPhone died.

Long story short, I came here, saw your thread, and was about to post another "My iPhone died, plz help omgz" thread but I actually fixed the problem. Here we go:

1. Connect your iPhone to your computer, preferably removing the Dock so you can actually hold the phone comfortably.

2. Get on your home screen and find the Kate application icon.

3. Click and HOLD this icon until all icons begin squiggling around the screen.

4. Hopefully your "Kate" icon has an "X" on the top left corner of it, which is there to delete or uninstall the application. Click this.

5. Kate will ask you if you would like to uninstall or delete...go ahead and click Uninstall, then it will give you a set of instructions on how to uninstall, and also a 2nd uninstall button you'll have to pick.


6. Leave your iPhone plugged in and on this last menu, and just set it down on the table. After a minute or two, my phone randomly synced again with my computer, and the phone was back to normal again.

Pay attention here...if you uninstall the program through installer WITHOUT unchecking all of Kate's settings through the program itself, your phone will still be messed up as far as fonts and other things go.

Hope this helps, and I'll be around to answer any questions.
