I updated to new firmware on 05/20 and since that day I have had to reset my phone everyday because it became unresponsive. This morning the phone finally bricked. I get the Nokia logo and then a blue screen. I have tried hard reset with button with no success.
I contacted Nokia for assistance and they provided me with the steps for the hard reset
I purchased it from HSN
The phone is still freezing up so i will be sending it in for repair.
that sucks. It seems that this is one thing Windows Phone needs to improve: Firmware Updates. If it silently fails or installs incorrectly, it seems to brick the phone. They should add a failsafe, such as a backup partition or something...
