they are going to collect it via FedEx and repair it for free, very good service IMO.
i am hoping that if i leave it on over night (the backlight is glowing) and flatten the battery, with a charge it might come back to life (i hope)

I just tried fox news and it says media type not supported, I wonder what they are using?

I have a strange issue, I'm in the browser on crackberry, and i can scroll around in the window on the screen using touch. However the onscreen keyboard wont come up. I'm typing this on the bb bluetooth keyboard. None of the swipe from the border will work so i cant switch to other tasks or shut down the browser. I think it will need a three finger reboot....

I found at least one fix - the details of my Contacts would disappear if I changed the sort (from First Name to Last Name as an example). It works fine now. Also discovered a small blue arrow in the Messages listings which indicates I have subsequently responded to the specific message.

Just installed the update, so far I'm very glad to report that I finally have the ability to update my free apps without it nagging me for a payment method. Before the update, it was asking me to enter a PayPal account or credit card number, despite the updates being free, as I have the payment method set to my phone bill from my Torch.Z30 (10.2.1.2947) | Lumia 1020 (WP8.1 Dev Preview, Lumia Black) | Nexus 4 (Android 4.4.2)

Did the update. Download was fast. Install slow to start, but then went OK. Reboot, no problems. Tried the normal stuff. Websites seemed a bit faster to load, but maybe just the time of day? Anyway no issues and no noticeable improvements for average user like me.

Debating whether i should update or not. Because i fear that it might brick, or download the large update and might get into problems. And that my sideloaded apps would disappear.Follow me on Twitter: @itsmetakuma089

None of my sideloaded apps disappeared during the update, but then again I didn't experience any of the issues anyone has reported, my update was silky-smooth. Downloaded and installed the 37MB version in reasonable time, restarted quite quickly, and working perfectly since then (Even had an annoying bug fixed as I said a few posts up).Z30 (10.2.1.2947) | Lumia 1020 (WP8.1 Dev Preview, Lumia Black) | Nexus 4 (Android 4.4.2)

Have you tried
To fix an issue, try these in order:
Restart using the Battery Icon and press Restart
Press and hold the Power button for 10-15 seconds. Then leave it for 20-30 seconds and see if it restarts.
Press and HOLD all three keys for about 10 - 20 seconds: PowerOn, VolUp and VolDown. Start with the PowerButton. Keep holding past the 3-choice options screen. If you hear a shutter type sound, you've taken a Screen Shot and probably missed the PowerButton.

I still wonder what happened. I got the small update Notice (what 30-40MB), started it, download took its time. Install was taking forever - seriously at least 20 minutes of NO activity. I swore but left it alone. Came back, I don't know when and it was then downloading the 400+MB - that went slow but not as slow as the small download - I could see the bar increasing. But I left it alone, too. Came back and it was INSTALLING for quite a while. Came back and it wanted to RESTART (like I had a choice). Restart took a while of bubbles but finished. So I don't know why or what about the larger, what I'll call SECOND download was about. I do not believe that I deleted any basic native apps.
