the screen was meant to go blank and then it restarts when update finish's/or near finish you should of just left it carry on until it stopped updating by itself.
sound's like you bricked it by unplugging it

Tend to agree with ccraig, sounds like you may have bricked it. You could try pulling the battery out for a minute then replace it and try the Call+3+* and switching it on. May work.

Not a lot else I can suggest. You might try reading this thread:-

http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/forum...ate+failed+n95

Failing that you could return it under warranty.

I think that as you only got it today that you should contact whoever you purchased it from and just say that you want a replacement as the one you have is faulty.

Have you tried doing the firmware update again? Worth a try.

I think Nokia service centre will help you failing that.

So long as you haven't changed the product code on the phone, which in some cases seems to invalidate the warranty, and you were using Nokia's own Updater Software I cannot see a problem with them repairing your phone.

there is ways to flash bricked phones but b/c you phone is brand new it is best to take back to where you brought it and make up a excuse & see if they swap it or take to nokia shop they'll reflash under warranty
should cost u nothing too b/c your problem happend under warranty using their official apps/software
Just don't tell them(nokia) you unplugged it before finish.

nokia centre will probably beable to tell that a firmware upgrade did'nt finish ,just say you was upgading it freezed up and would'nt finish ,say you left it for hours and it was just stuck .


What shop did u get it from ?
Because some phone shops just employ salemen who know nothing about the software if its that kind of shop they might just swap it or send it off for you,But you can take to nokia directly yourself under warranty
