Phoenix flashing=Dead phone!

I have Flashed 2 N80's and 1 N70 sucessfully using phoenix 2006, but when I attempted to flash a friends 6630 I have renderd the phone useless with just a white screen.

I can not understand why this has happend especially after I have flashed 3 phones before.

All started well, phoenix recognised the phone. I selected the firmware from the list (euro 1) and started the software upgrade.

Phoenix then started to flash the phone, then it reported flashing failed.

I havew tryed to re-flash the phone but Phoenix will not recognise the phone. I have seen some instructions on how to flash a dead phone with Phoenix but that does not seem to work.

Any ideas how I can sort this?

How much will a Nokia service centre charge to sort out this mess?

Scott

That kind of tools, are always a risk... You take it, so... Why do that by out, when a 6630 is possible to do by in, with Nokia Software Updater Now, only Nokia Service can save the device, and is a pay service, instead a free one
