    I turned off my T Mobile Dash because it had been acting up a little. When I went to turn it back on, it goes between the white T Mobile Screen and the green Windows Mobile screen and WILL NOT boot all the way up. Please help! My next step is to take the phone to the store and have them replace it.

Mine does the samething. I'm running 6.1 and have found the problem to be the system fails to read the sd card on boot. When I reset my memory I don't put the sd card in until the system has booted back to the start screen. Works fine everytime.

Seems you have to do a hard reset, you will lose all the data on your phone and be reverted back to factory settings
If you are locked up and can't get to the Clear Storage utility, turn the phone off; hold down the two softkey menu select buttons (above the home and <- buttons); press power on while still holding the buttons down and follow the prompts on the screen. Timing is critical on the latter option, so if you miss it once, try again.

1. Press and hold soft1 and soft2 keys.
2. Press and hold power button for around 1 to 1.5 seconds. Release power button. REMAIN holding soft1 and soft2 keys.
3. Instructions will be displayed.
4. Press the green button (the button u wud use to dial someone (on the left side of the home and soft1 keys) **Remember you have to remain holding the two soft keys and then you release it after pressin the green button and then the phone will continue to boot.
5. It may seem that the phone is frozen at the tmobile screen, but wait a little bit and it will go to resetting
6. If it doesnt work, repeat steps 1 to 4.
The timing is critical.

Tmobile Dash won't work at all

I had to visit quite a few stores and finally purchased a used battery from a licensed dealer. With the new battery I was able to restart the phone and the new battery also held a charge. This phone is prone to overheating and gets what the phone tech called, "thermal shutdown." Too hot, it turns off or freezes up. I ran into other problems with this phone so I finally got a different one.

My tmobile dash freezes every time i try to start.

Turn the handheld off, hold the two soft keys (the dashes to the left and right of the phone buttons) hold the power button for 1-2 seconds and then release the soft keys. It should prompt you to clear storage. The “send” button is considered as the green phone button.

My phone will not turn on weird stuff !

Turn off phone, remove Media STORAGE card, not the SIM card.  Reboot phone without storage card and it should go to home screen.  Then replace STORAGE card and enjoy! :o)

Dash stuck on opening TMobile screen

The Windows Mobile installation may be corrupted.
The only way to fix that problem is by re-installing the windows software on the phone.
You can get the software for the T-mobile dash at the following link:
Be warned that if you use this method most of the data on the phone will be lost, like text messages and etc. Your contacts should be fine as the are stored on the SIM Card and if you have been syncing your contacts with your PC then they should get loaded when you do the up

T-mobile dash

I tried using a the google mail java app on my tmobile dash. It froze up on me, and when i turned it back on it just stays at the "tmobile" splash screen. I have tried using the soft key and power button reset but it doesnt work. What's weird is that it wont power down unless I take the battery out. It powers on, shows the tmobile splash screen, then freezes. Is there any other way to reset it or is it totally bricked? I bought it new off craiglslist so tmobile wont replace it for me cause I'm using it unlocked on cingular.

Ok bro I know I am a bit too late to help you with this problem but someone else may benefit from these directions. I see most places online only have half advice about this very common problem with T-mobile Dash.

This is what you need to do, you have to do a hard reset exactly like "reviel" mention. Also like he said timing is essential but the trick is that you need to show some patience through the process.

Note: Please read the directions completely before doing anything for better results.

Step 1: Take your battery out and shut off your phone
Step 2: Press and hold the two soft key buttons.
Step 3: Press and hold the power button for exact two seconds, 1001, 1002 and release, but continue to hold the two soft key buttons.
Step 4: Within seconds a black screen with some text will come up asking you to confirm if you wanna delete everything; and right then you let go of your soft key buttons and press the green call button (also known as the "send key").
Step 5: You are done but not really, your job now is to find something else to do and leave your phone alone for at least 2 minutes. Eventually if you don't have a SIM in it, it will prompt you for it and you click the soft key to choose "OK"; also, it will ask you to confirm to restart and you click the soft key to chose "Done" for it.

Wait a minute for it boot up and overall it should do it.

T mobile dash

This happen to me more than once, the latest today (may 25 08)at 9pm. Tmobile will tell you how sorry they are and that's about it. I am on my second dash and second battery.
Try to hold both top keys (between call green and hung up red) while you are pressing on the shut off switch for 2 seconds. Whe it comes back to life, everything will have erased but supposedly, the phone will be like new.
I am collecting names and emails of people who are fed up with the Dash and Tmobile. Write to me

do a sw reset....its possible it was damaged when it was dropped in the water, but not likey....

turn the phone off, press and hold the soft keys (buttons with the lines on them above the home key and back arrow key) and hold it the power button while you are doing that until the white t-mobile screen will come on, then instead of going to the green windows mobile screen, a black screen with white the green will get you in your phone but it will erase your info as a result....
