    I saw this happen on my phone once and thought it was weird. I thought I may have accidently turned off the phone when it was in my pocket, but it seemed to have never want to turn on. I did soft reset and it was fine. Unfortunately, this is a replacement 700wx from Sprint, which maybe a refurbished model. I'm just living with it, since my contract ends soon and I'm planning to upgrade to the 800wx when it soon comes.

    i had this problem with mine if your batter is low it wont come untill its above 5% try to make a phone call even tho the radio is off it will tell you if you would like to turn the radio on press yes. Let me know if that helps.

    If you have hard reset it like you said,,,,,,,,, and the radio still wont turn on then its a hardware problem which means its time for warranty repair or an insurance claim. This is assuming you performed the hard rest correctly. I use to occasionally have this problem on my 750 but a soft reset always fixed it.

    I have a 700p with Verizon with the same issue. It got dropped and now the phone (wireless) piece will never turn on... i get the same thing... when you hold down the button it will splash the screen Welcome! and then normally it would come on but it will just stay with the circle and line through the antenna icon. Very odd. I have hard reset too so i figure it must have broken the antenna or something inside.

    For me, just take out the battery for a while... maybe 1/2 day, then plug it back in and try again. I had this problem when I hard reset the unit
