Hi

Im about to make your day (Hopefully)

The same thing happened to me, i just fixed mines 2 minutes ago.

Follow this link

http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/support/softwaredownloads/detailed/updateservice/w880i?cc=gb&lc=en

Download the software

and follow instructions.

it will even tell you how to connect to the computer
even if it doesnt switch on.

Follow it trust me it helped me :)

However some of your things might be lost.

But NOT Sim contacts.
Mines have not gone
so there is a possibility they might stay.

Its just a software update.

By the way, when you have to chose the phones from the menu

pick the w880 as their is no w880i option
it works the same

So there you go

Good Luck :)

Has this ever powered up? Have you tried the ac charger? Have you pulled the battery?

 

Thanks

    Do you have a spare battery to put in it? Most cell phones will not work if the battery is bad. If this is not the case my bet is that the phone is dead.
