    Ok so they put a new battery in and the phone turned on but when plugged in it would not charge at all. To me that sounds like a phone issue, did they not say anything about a replacement or something of that nature?

    As long as the full SBF ran then it is stock unrooted and you should be fine.

    Plus, they won't or shouldn't spend too much time checking to see if your rooted (unless its obvious). If you can access bootloader, I'd run the sbf again. If its possible of course

    Well right now the battery is completely dead..so it wont do anything..yesterday it went to an all black screen with a white "M" and than the screen changes and it showed a big grey empty battery icon with a big "?" In the middle of it..but right now it wont turn on for anything..all i see is a lil white light thats on the side of the charger where its plugged in cuz im trying to leave it for a few hrs just to see what it does..i wonder what went wrong after i sbf..could it be that the "cut USB cord method" fried something in the phone..like maybe the connector ports where the battery goes?

    By what you are saying I think you should be fine. I forgot that it failed when you tried to update to GB. You are going to need to get a battery either way unless when you put your old one in the new phone it works. But you would probably be better off just picking one up.

    Yeah one thing i forgot to tell them was to try my battery out on another D2..since they said they were sending a replacement..but i was told the at another phone shop that the battery was good..that the problem might have been inside the phone..something went wrong for using that "cut USB cord method" thats is what made my battery say its invalid..

    As long as the numbers match it should be ok. I just have never gotten one from there. I have just always had luck getting them from Amazon so I stick with it.
