okay found the links and the stuff i was talking about. I was wrong.

Something is missing or not right. Have you tried holding down the home and power button? May need to hold it for a while...

Another thing is may want to see if Tmobile can help you get it back to normal. Tell them you must have downloaded a virus or something and when you rebooted the phone one day it went to that. I know they are not stupid but there is a warranty on them phones. I had a year warranty and i screwed my very first one up BAD to where it was asking for a rom.

side note... this sounds familiar like i have done what you did before... I honestly cant remember if i had to YEP.... call tmobile and get a replacement. You might be crap out of luck. Then again its been over a year so my memory could be bad.

damn it i hate being old...

Sorry that i was unable to successfully bring your phone back to life.

Did a quick google on the color of your LED and found this:

Solid blue: battery is fully charged, when connected to the AC adapter or computer.

Solid red: battery is charging

Flashing blue: you have a pending notification

Flashing red: battery is low and needs charging.

purple/yellow: get away, it's about to blow up!

Do you have a friend that has an MT3G? Sounds like it may be a battery issue and its about to blow or extremely bad. Maybe placing his battery in yours to see if that helps.
