    1. Everything on my phone works just fine. You are correct, no time display, no status bar and no wallpaper. Completely blank from top to bottom. No images what so ever. Blackout.

    Yes I took it to a Tmobile store and they were of no help, they insisted that I just get a new phone or pay my deductible and have the phone replaced. This happened once before where the screen completely blackedout. I left it alone for a while and the screen reappeared This is the second time but the screen has stayed black for the past 3 days. Then when I tried trouble shooting the problem myself like pressing the * and the # buttons together the screen flickered then blackedout again. I'm going on the 4th day now, I'm just waiting for my new phone that I ended up purchasing, I wanted to see if this one could be spared as a back-up.

Hello all,

jhunter: have you lost your wallpapers? and what particular version of the V3 do you have?

Guest: the only way to possibly get your phone entires that you didn't save to your simm card and can't see your screen to upload them via an app or drill down to save them to your simm card, would be to take your phone to a phone store your service provider operates. They have the tools to dock your phone and access the entries. They should be able to replace your phone under your insurance plan unless they deem it to be a manufacturer's fault.

Any questions and responses, please use the comment box below to reply.

    May I please understand this correctly. Everything about your phone works just fine, the screen is just blank. Do you see the time on the front, the upper and bottom stataus bars, just not your wallpaper? Or is the front and inside display blank from top to bottom?

    Do you also have MyFavs on your phone?

    I came across some information online that stated the Miami Ink version was sold by T-mobile.

    Did you buy through them and take it to an ATT or Verizon store?

    Well I doubt it will be reliable if it comes back on. The problem sounds like it is in the power circuit internally that powers the screen section itself.

    Since this can't be fixed by me or any other tech I would appreciate a fixed solution rather than any rating at all, as I've spent all this time on your phone and a rating such as fixed when a product need warranty or service and can't be fixed via tech support means a lot to those of us who work in the free area and not just the Premium Pay portion of the web site.

    Thanks in advance and good luck,

Broken screen and text messages

I broke my screen too and this is what i did to read them:

my friend has the same menu as me (both verizon users) and so held his phone in one hand and my broken on in the other. then what ever i did on his phone i did with my phone.

I basically went into my inbox (blindly basically) and individually forwarded the messages to his phone...after i read them, i replied in the same manner using my phone.

Its kind of alot of work, its worth it and it gets the job done...I could read my texts!

Hope this works
