    Ok so I was on my way home on the train, typing a message on facebook and then all of a sudden the colours in my screen faded out and the screen went white. i pressed a button and the colours half came back but it was so feint and i had no control over the fone....Battery pulled, after a long long long startup (about 25mins) it finally came back to life and it hasn't happened since.

    Im running the original OS that came with the phone, I was going to update it when I got home but decided against it seeing as I had a problem with the screen....

    Anyone have any ideas what this is? Anyone have the same problem? I got the phone Wednesday/Thursday last week....

    I'm guessing it's the same thing that happened to my Samsung D500 all those years ago, I sent it to Samsung, they replaced the LCD and it worked fine after that....

    I have a feeling all answers will point back to the retailer but thanks for any info provided....
