    Picked up an 820 on eBay was going to fire it up to hard reset the device.

    But upon turning on the device, and plugging in the power cord I'm just getting a black screen with "NOKIA" showing up. Question is does the device require the SIM to boot up (I wouldn't think this was the case) or is it Bricked and I've got to swing by a Nokia Service Centre.

    Tried Bing and Google but got nothing

    Cheers

    No it does not need it. Try the forced reset for Nokia phones. Something like holding the down vol. button and power. Bing it and you will find it.

    If not, return it.

    Bummer, battery died before I could try it and it's not charging

    Starting to feel like I got a lemon.

    No most smartphones nowadays don't...

    Ah...the times when Nokia's phones required a SIM card to boot up...
