can you call me on this number i cannot use my virgin mobile phone because it will only go as far as the load up of the virgin mobile app people dancing picture My phone number you can reach me on is(###) ###-####
Cell Phone Technician: Richard, Technician replied 3 years ago
I am not able to call sorry, but if my last instructions did not work it confirms the problem
It is the internal memory that has faulted.
A corrupted firmware can cause this. But we have ruled this out by trying to reinstall it. The fact that we cannot get to the recovery window, confirms it is the memory that shorts out, and causes the device to stall.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the phone to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
