    Exact same prob as Timmmmy. Just randomly happened. No drop, no water. Turns on, takes me to the 'Enter code' screen, wont respond to any buttons 'cept the power on/off. Still gets reception n everything just wont respond. Taken the back off, dissconnected n cleaned connector but yup, still....

    Exact same problem with same phone. Only this didn't start until my daughter tried to download a game. The screen went blank and now only the power button works. When it first happened i took the battery and sim card out then put them back in and it fixed the problem for a little while. But now that doesn't work. Have only had phone three days. Any help will be appreciated.

Wow cheers for that! haha
All good now, problem fixed! I stripped the entire fone down and clean with sum circuit board spray. Twisted the keypad to loosen stuff up and put it all back together. works a charm!
The fones bout 2-3 years old now i guess, so yeah it probably gettin on like 80 in human years right? But yeah id recommend just gettn small screwdriver and makin as many peices outta the thing before puttin back together for a result. Its pretty simple really. not much to them

my phone did the exact same thing.
i figured out the keypad had died. the only reason the power/end button works is because it went back to it's emergency/natural settings. if you have a two-year contract like i do then i suggest you get a "new" one. There's really no way to fix it. I tried the stripping it down to the bare necessities. That didn't really solve anything. So.. Just a get a refurb or something. Cus the phone is a piece of **** after a while.
Good Luck to y'all.

Phone turns on fine but nothing happens pushing buttons except power.

If your phone has a keypad lock option, make sure that the keypad is not locked. Refer to the user manual to know how to unlock the keypad.

It is also possible that the keypad is defective and needs to be replaced.
