When you power up first let it going into off chargeing mode, then hold the power button to turn it on, continue to hold it through this whole process, then after the sitck together box has been completed (which may take a few attempets) rapidly push the right soft key until your phone jump in and out of the t-zones area which should be your default right soft key buttong then you should be able to use your phobe normally, note that it did take me a good half an hour of doing this to make my phone through the whole process. :)

My Ideos is doing the same, it was a present and has been working fine (4 months).I tried to go on the net and it wouldn't let me (usually has the H symbol), tried market and it wouldn't work, uploading photos wouldn't work. Messages were full and memory was also full.
Battery has always been bad, my friends gave it to me, and I'm not sure if they pre charged the battery (for long enough) or if it's just a bad battery.
I brought a Data cable and it has been fine, and got another one from the net which I haven't used yet (car/usb).
The phone is still on the Ideos screen page atm, it does it's animation and turns itself off. I can't turn it off with the power switch, it only turns off when I take the battery out. When I put it back in and switch it on the screen page is still up. When I charge it , there's no charge or picture charging it. I was going to put all my pics etc on the computer tomorrow and it desides to play up today, luckerly I'd already put some up a month ago so they won't all be lost if it doesn't come back on. Very annoying I can't put my alarm on or make calls, nothing :(

you simply fried your battery by overcharging it. Just get a new one, let it fully charge and fully die twice before you start normal charging. Then you will want to only charge it for about 2 to 3 hours or find a charger that has a smart chip that tells it when to stop charging once the battery is full.
