HI All - anyone else had this? SCreen wont work - plugged into PC can be read. Restored (incl new firmware), restore worked...still nothing on screen!

How long do you think it would take to get a replacement from Optus? I'm due to go away on Sunday :( :( :( :(

ok, update: after a couple of hours i pushed the button and the screen flashed, so I did the actions to turn it off even though I couldnt see it, and it seemed to work. Half an hour later I turned it back on - it worked intermittently for a while, but has worked ok for the last hour and a half, so the restore might have taken............I'll leave it for now as I really want it for my trip, but I'll take my old Nokia with me just in case!

Do you mean the screen doesn't work completely, or just the backlight doesn't work? I remember someone else having a problem with the backlight, then doing a restore and suddenly it's fine. So you might be okay.

Other people have had this problem:
