This phone had been active and functional for over 6 months. After leaving it plugged in for the day while I was gone, I came back to it being messed up!
It will NOT turn on-it's stuck in a boot loop(flashes beginning white cricket screen, then goes black, and repeats.)
When I press power button for a second, it says it has 77%; but when I try to start it up (both by holding power button, and/or by the various ways of rebooting it via power and volume buttons), it flashes a screen showing the battery as dead, and needs to be plugged in. BUT refuses to acknowledge being plugged in.
BTW-when I try to get to the menu by holding power and volume key, no menu will pop up- (except a screen indicating it needs to be plugged in-regardless of how much charge it previously said it had)- UNLESS it is plugged in.
Also-NOTHING new has been done-NO recent updates, NO new apps downloaded; just plugged in for a full day. (I normally only charge a few hours at a time, or overnight). So what the hell??
