    Lo que encotramos al reparar estas unidades es que el cable “flexible” o la pantalla estan defectuosos. Trata de llamarle a Sprint/Motorola y explicarles la situacion. Sigue llamandoles hasta que te contesten.

    7/29 About 8 weeks ago the screen on my Motorola I880 went upside down. I got used to it. Now, for 2 weeks, the screen is white. I can’t get used to that! If I only open it about 1/4 of the way, I can see the screen otherwise it’s white. Any help from anybody appreciated.

    Joseph, Easy fix for NO SIGNAL. Go into your SETTINGS then all the way down to ADVANCED. Then go into TRANSMITTERS and turn them to ON.

    As far as UNSIDE DOWN inside screen on the i880, Mine did it just this morning, and I am trying to find a fix. I paid the full price for this phone as I went with Boost in a effort to have good serverice with lower cost.

    When I plug my phone in to charge it and then flip open the front the back light wont turn on for about 10-15 seconds. Also times when I open it it wont interact with the keystrokes into the display for a couple of seconds and then it will just shoot them all threw.

    I use a i880 though Boost, then my screen went upside down, then all white. I took it to a sprint store that is a authorized repair center, they took my phone, and in less than 30 minutes I got it back with a brand new upper section. I had no problems at all. I was gonna send it to Motorola to fix it, they said 10 days to 2 weeks. Sprint did it free and fast. Not just any Sprint store, Do a location search and look for one that does repairs.
