    Picked up Nexus S from Fido this PM...A Disaster!

    They set it up and gacve me the phone,
    I was asked to charge it up when I got home and i DID.

    Now when I turn it on it tries to boot and the screen appears and its even flashing a text message that I got, the battery is full green and I get signal. The only two icons are the speaker and the lock (unlocked)

    The color lines go up and down and sideways for about10-15 seconds sometimes less and the screen turns off. I do nt think anyone has any idea of how mad I am.!

    Please help

    Janus

    Welcome to the forums!

    It sounds like you got a defective handset... it happens, though not very often. When you say color lines, do you have any pictures or anything? Sounds like it's got a bad logic board or a loose display connector. Both of those would require a replacement device.

    Like Dorian stated, it does sound like you got a bad unit. I would get a replacement immediately.

    Send it back and buy an HTC! Lol.. Ok I am a little biased towards HTC! But, seriously, it is in the device and I bought one two months ago, same kind of issues. I took it back and got my refund.

    Interesting. I had a Nexus S up until just recently, and I've never heard of this particular issue. ? It can't be that widespread...

    Wow - Fido -haven't seen that since I was living in Canada about 10 years ago! I would take it back and get it replaced ASAP as well.

    Its not. They had some problems with some of the devices. Very similiar to when I had the behold2 and it would start eating my text messages. Very few had that problem with that device. I was just one if the unfortunate.
