Alright dude. calm down.

The people who will help you wont respond any better or faster because you posted multiple exclamation mars, all caps title, and the word emergency (which clearly this isnt, its just a bung phone, which given the fact you have internet access, is not your only form of communication with the outside world).

Reset the phone back to factory settings using the menu system (check your user manual if need be).
If no luck after this, continue reading.

If you have not caused any damage to the phone (dropped, bad settings, moisture, heat etc etc), then your phone is still under warranty, and the retailer is required to repair, replace or refund, under the consumer guarantees act.

Set the answer to "where did you buy it from" as X

Take your phone back to X. They will sort it.

Have you been seem editing the phone at all? - I did that with my V3 Razr and stuffed it up until I realised what I had done wrong.
