My w960i while loading to boot on it turns black screen.Until I r

A month ago, it happened to my phone too. I got it reprogrammed at a local repair shop for only $10. The repair man says the problem is brought about by over charging of batteries or by downloading of certain apps which eat up a huge amount of the phone's 8GB internal memory. So he advised me to be careful so it won't happen again. I hope this helps. =)

Sounds like a fault that can be fixed under Manufacturers Warranty.

Go to and take it to an Express Repairs Center. If it is still within warranty they can repair it for free.
