I inserted a SIM card and the battery -- no microSD card.
I charged the battery all the way.
I explored the phone for awhile and was very pleased.
I decided to install the updates listed in Notifications.
There were 7 updates totalling 13.3MB, if I recall.
It had no problem downloading everything but got stuck at "Uncompressing..." for over 5 hours.
I used the phone during this time.
I finally decided to cancel the "Download".
It showed a single update as a remaining task -- System, 9.1MB, if I recall.
I selected Later.
I held the power button and selected Restart.
The phone is stuck at the fox screen, no animated tail, and does not respond to power button or USB charger.
I attempted a soft reset, as suggested in a previous post.
I removed the battery and the SIM card.
I waited over 10 seconds.
I replaced the battery -- not the SIM card.
I pressed the power button.
It is again stuck at the fox screen.
