I have had my Sanyo M1 since Telecom brought them out, Great phone, but all of a sudden it wont turn on, unsure why. It has not been damaged in anyway.

All I want to know is to how to either turn it on without sending it to get repaired. Or be able to get the photo's and contacts off it somehow as I will be upgrading to a new one. Please note that this phone doesn't turn on.

I have tried a replacement battery and it still doesn't work.

If anyone could help, that would be gratefully appriecated.

Cheers Adam

Catch 22.  Don't send it away to get it fixed if you want to save the phone numbers.  They are most likely to be lost when fixing it, as I have been told by Telegistics.  If you aren't sure, take it to a mobile phone shop for them to look at.  Maybe it's only the battery contacts bent or broken?  It won't be under warranty since you have had it since day one...

Thanks for your help so far,
Just wondering if anyone knew of any software that can get into a cellphones internal memory when a cell phone wont turn on.

Any help will be grateful.
