Question about Nokia 5300 Grey Cellular Phone

1 Answer

No service after dropping the phone once.

I dropped my phone yesterday and it wouldn't get service...then about 5 hours later it got service and worked up until a few mins ago so it worked for almost 24 hours. I know it isn't my coverage because my husband has the exact same phone and it get perfect service. When it started working last night I thought it was fine.....now out of the blue it started again...i didn't drop it again or anything just stopped working. Nothing is rattling in it and it didn't get beat up so I don't know what is wrong with it......And I have taken out the battery,sim and memory card and put them back in...and nothing....please help I just got this phone not to long ago and can't upgrade again right now

This usually happens when you drop it, what happens is that when it comes in contact with the floor or hard surface, it can damage the componets without you knowing, you can not tell what exactly is wrong with it unless you take it to a repair shop and if its a major componet you might be better off just buying a new phone, or if you have T-mobile you can call them and they will send you a new phone for free its just when you get the new phone they need your broken or old phone back. Hope this helps. =)

Blank screen


Mine did this too. Once you dropped it, The screen went blank because it's the first time you've done it. Just leave it off for a few hours, And it SHOULD go back to normal... If It doesn't contact T-mobile. :)

Screen will not light up.


Well as crazy as it seems, by dropping it you most likely damaged the backlight for the phone thus making it not light up anymore.

Razr phones are notorious for being damaged easily. There is little you can do but replace it or accept it the way it is.

Sorry for the mishap, and I hope this gives a little clarification on the subject. Thank you for stopping by Fixya.
