If you are not rooted and can't get it to boot then your options are few. Warranty exchange a possibility?

It does boot, everything looks fine (except for the date of 1980!?), I can see the wallpaper and the "lock/unlock-bar", battery status, etc. I just can not swipe the "lock-bar" down to unlock the phone, the touchscreen is completely non-responsive.

Does it respond to any touches on the screen or does it just timeout and turn the screen off?

No response what-so-ever, it just times out and goes blank.

My gut tells me it has something to do with the date being 30 years off (1980) ...but I am new to all this!

BTW, there has been no physical damage, I have not dropped it or anything like that.

I really do appreciate your time!

That would be correct! Still unsure about the touchscreen unresponsiveness though...sorry.

No problem, I appreciate your time!

What about the 1980 date, have you ever heard of anything like that before?

I wouldn't get too hung up on it. Could just be a messed up setting... Unless you believe someone from the past is trying to communicate with you.

..."Unless you believe someone from the past is trying to communicate with you." I wish!

No, I just thought that like on a computer, if the date is far in the past it can mess up the "communications" within the device. The date was correct before and then after the "update" is went back to 1980, was just wondering if that is "confusing" the phone...I know it worked on me!!
