As it's under warranty I would only take it to a Nokia Reair Centre otherwise you may invalidate your warranty.

I would just tell your operator that you tried switching the phone on & it didn't work, straight out of the box.

They'll courier over a swap next day (at least Vodafone do).

to tell you guys honestly, i cannot bring it to a nokia repair centre because we dont have one here on the island..my phone was purchased back at the phillippines and it would take me quite a while as i cant go back there at the moment..i tried looking everywhere on the island, looking in phone book directories to see if we have an available nokia repair center..but the closest ive gotten looking to if a cellphone repair shop that offers flashing..thats why i consulted you guys first..does flashing require opening the phone?isnt it just usb+pc+phone?im just looking at my only option here as i am far from salvation..

Flashing doesn't require opening the phone as you correctly stated.

ok thanks..but im just wondering why they need for me to leave the phone with them 2-3 days..maybe i should just let them know that i just need it to be flashed..btw,the repair shop also does software updates..does flashing alter anything in the phone though?i mean performance wise?does it invalidate anything?it doesnt right?correct me if im wrong..

Flashing doesn't alter anything as such in the phone. I don't know why it should take them 2-3 days. Having a non Nokia service centre do it would, I believe, invalidate your warranty though.

well then..its best that i punch some sense into them and let them know that flashing does not take 2-3 days..i think i better show them this thread to show evidence of so and so..

flashing revives a bricked phone right?and how exactly is flashing done on a BRICKED phone?
