    I was thinking of a solution until I read it worked without the battery... So, I have to ask - is it possessed?

    When you get a battery, plug it in and do a full wipe with BBSAK then re-install your OS.

    Here is a tutorial for your situation....

    See if this helps...

    When you find your battery...I would suggest wiping your phone. Since you don't have files to back up you will need to reset your info..date..time..etc. just like its a new phone.

    I don't know...

    If it won't boot up...you won't be able to back it up. So you're probably starting over. Did you have google sync on you phone...if so...you can reinstall that and log in and re-sync your contacts. Sorry...otherwise. Good Luck...find your battery.
