Just had this problem, phone not turning on although the blue ring is lit whilst on charge. Luckily though witha bit of luck I held the power button in and a then followed by holding volume up at the same time, it gave me a system menu the top option being reboot system now which I did and the phone is now back on. I think the battery is damaged but I wont let it run out of charge ever again. will keep updated within a few days but for now its on.

Welcome to the community
Sorry to hear you are having issues with your brand new phone.
It's probably a good idea to take it back to place of purchase for them to investigate. As you have only had it for less than 7 days, I beleive they may be able to swap it out as it may be considered 'out of box' failure.

Exact same thing has happened to me! phone is not even a week old! charged it overnight through my laptop and when i went to use it it only displayed the blue ring. Changing power source and charging cable doesnt fix the issue. I have moved to a new city since purchasing so i cant take it to the shop.
Also this phone has a nano sim card so i cant even put it back in my old micro sim card phone and use that! This is a huge issue for me because i require my phone for my job. Very disapppointed and in need of a quick fix.

Sorry to hear of your phone issues. Any issues that involve software/hardware are best dealt with in store. Sadly, we cannot diagnose any faults on the community.
Some stores offer loan phones for a returnable deposit. Best to take it in asap for a service agent to look at

I Bought a new Vodafone Smart Ulra 6 six days ago, and it too won't turn on. As per the previous reports, it shows a blue circle on screen while charhing, but nothing else... It seems that this is a fault with these phones.

Also having this problem. Had my phone about six months. Plugged in and the blue ring is on at the bottom. I saw on the UK vodafone site that this problem eventually sorted itself for many people on that website. Anyone here had that luck?

Held down the power button for about 30 seconds and it restarted. I don't know if this was affected by an update of some kind or what, but the My Vodafone app has a different icon, so.....???!!! I dunno, but it's going again!

I'm having the same problem.
I bought this Vodafone Ultrasmart phone 5 or 6 months back, and it was working fine until today.
This morning as well, it was working fine, but now when I came back to check my social updates, it is turned off. So, I tried to turn on, but it doesn't happen. So I put it on charging, and came back to check if it switches on, but it doesn't.
It is showing the blue circle when I put it on charging, but it is not turning on.
I don't know what to do. I have a lot of data and apps installed.
