All bets are off. Since all parts are suspect let's hope you have some sort of extended warranty.
Hi I have a Samsung galaxy 2 4g. It had a problem with water damage and I got it repaired at the shop, The next day I put my sim card in and nothing happened, when I took it back to the shop the guy told me that there was no IMEI number, I never modified my phone in any way.
Anyway I did a factory reset and now when my phone loads it is stuck on a black screen only displaying the top drop down bar, with the time, wifi, gps etc buttons.
There is no wallpaper displayed or bottom widgets, the home key doesn't bring up anything. I can log on to wifi and the keyboard works when i use the internet.
There are two notifications
1. Samsung update .. when i choose this it asks me what country I live in etc... and then it fails to verify
2. Set-up Samsung account... when I choose this it asks me if i would like to update. If i click yes nothing happens, if I click no nothing happens.
So basically I have a phone displaying the time wifi, gps, etc buttons.
No apps, wallpaper, Phone signal or anything
Can anyone help me with this?
