    This did solve the problem. Later buttons decided to fall off and I gave it away. Loved that fone, it was my first touch screen.

My phone p1i restsrt

Just found something potentially helpful in this thread:

@scotland67 wrote: phone just hung every time on logo screen... was getting worried (didn't want to re-flash/lose all data). ......battery out/battery back in... but it was still stopping at logo screen. So, during this I simply pressed the on/off button, pressing it for >10sec... this seemed to do a reset of sorts, and the phone started up ok next time (and been ok since). Phew!"

I know it's a bit late, but may be useful for anyone else with the same problem....

Try cleaning the battery terminals. You may have corrupted your phone's software. Try flashing it once. Flashing may cost arounf 7-10$
