HERE IS A LINK
to more info about the vision, including brick advice and teardowns of your phone.
If your looking for a cheap fix you can often find a used cracked screen broken g2 on ebay for under 40$ and its easy to swap logicboards. if you really want a qwerty phone there are few to choose from and this is still one of the top choices.
I own many qwertys, htc g1, g2, mytouch 4g slide, samsung sidekick 4g, just bought a samsung relay and really my favorite to this day is still the htc vision.
my advice if you cant get yours working, consider swapping logicboards, take about 10 minuets and LOOK HERE
cant promise anything of course but sounds like a perfect phone to swap logicboards and only costs 24$
best of luck!
