I have the i856w, with the same problem. It is a manufacturer defect. From sliding the screen up and down, the ribbon cable for the screen has a bald spot on it from rubbing against the frame of the phone, where it passes thru to connect to the main circuit board. A new ribbon cable would fix the problem and get your screen working again, however, the sharp edge of the fram would only rub away the new cable and you would be back in the same boat again with a blank screen. Maybe if you wrapped a small piece of electrical tape over the edge of the frame it would help with extending the life of the ribbon cable. Hope this answer reached you in time and helped you with possibly saving your phone, if you still have it that is.

You can Unlock it simply using the Unlock code,You can get the Unlock code from the site
www.mobile-unlocker.com
and Follow the instructions and unlock it step by step.


Motorola I856 Select your current network to see a list of available unlocking services noimage.gif Network Provider Select your Current Service Provider


Motorola I856 Unlocking Instructions Warning : Do not enter any wrong unlock codes on your Motorola I856 mobile phones. If you enter over a certain amount of wrong unlock codes on your Motorola I856 mobile phone, your phone may get hard locked and sometimes become unusable.
1 - Switch ON your Motorola I856 with a NOT ACCEPTED SIM Card,
2 - Phone will display "Enter Special Code",

NOT ACCEPTED: We mean, to use a sim card from a network other than the network your Motorola I856 is locked to.

WARNING: If one of theses messages appear :

- "Contact Service Provider"
- "Tampert Alter"
- "Wait before enter special Code"

It's because you or somebody already entered too many wrong codes, you just have to leave the Motorola I856 ON with the errors message and after 40 minutes to 2 hours the message "Enter Code Special" will appear again!

I856 white screen


Hi,

there is nothing wrong with your screen. The problem is from the screen flex. The flex is either worn out or has disconnected from its right position.

So you need to open the phone cover and check the flex. If the flex is well fixed and the screen is still displaying white, then it means you have to change the flex completely.

This kind of problem is common with flip and slide phone. Its as a result of constant opening and close of the slide or flip phone.

Take care.

My screen went blank or white, on my brand new motorola i856 .. i recived a text ... hit reply .. and bam ,,, blank white screen ... 4 days old ... what do i do ???


This reply is somewhat late, but, the WSOD on the i856 is thought to be caused by the ribbon cable breaking or tearing in the slide.  If it is under warranty, contact motorola.  But do it quickly, the phone only has a 90 day warranty.
