Question about Samsung SPH-M500 Cellular Phone
When you turn on the phone it flashes power up & never gives us the screen. Therfore, unable to use.
I tried taking out the battery, but no luck!
I received Samsung M300 from Sprint back in July 2008 as a "freebie". I observed exactly the same behavior **out of the box**. Did not drop it and did not get it wet. Since it was sent to me by a Sprint phone solicitation, the local Sprint store had no interest in the problem (no swap out). I suspect these "freebies" are actually refurbished phones, but I have no proof.
I tried battery replacement (with known good, fully charged battery), cleaning battery contacts and patiently pressing the END/(!) button repeatedly to try to power on the phone.
My next step may be to take it back to the Sprint store and have them "test" the phone (rather than pushing for a replacement). Maybe that would lure them into doing something if they see it as a potential "add a phone" scenario! :)

You problably dropped the phone, or got it wet. Thus short circuiting either the motherboard or the battery.
