    Yesterday my phone was working normally in the morning. Come the evening and it's off for no apparent reason, and won't allow itself to be turned on. It seems pushing the button has no effect whatsoever. So I switch batteries with a friend of mine who also has a w800i, still no luck. Last resort is getting home, removing the battery and plugging it into the mains, the little red "low battery" light flashes but nothing happens on pushing the buton.
    I charged the phone all night and it still won't turn on, tell me I won't have to return my phone... And on that subject, I'm on O2 online, I bought it in August, can I just send the phone to them? their website isn't terribly helpful.

    Any help guys? Would be appreciated :)

    Yeah give them a ring and they should sort it, i had a similar problem about 2 weeks in and they changed it fine, my new one seems a little dodgy aswell but nothing too serious yet.
