    My phone was going dead last night so I pluged it in to charge overnight. When I woke up the screen was blank. I went to plug it in again, because I thought maybe it wasn't pluged in all the way. When I pluged it in the screen was still blank. I unpluged it and took the battery out, and replaced it. Still nothing. Has anyone ever had this problem in the past? Please help me!:icon_eek:

    Is it hot? Mine used to shut down until it cooled down.

    is the little white light coming on by the usb port when you have it plugged in?

    try plugging just the usb cord into a usb port of your computer. Maybe the wall inverter died. I dunno. just throwing something out there.

    OH! your phone will come on without the battery. So if you pull it out and try plugging it into a wall or computer it should still come on. If not, i dunno.

    Try the usb cord into a computer first. hopefully just the wall charger died.

    Weird

    I tried all that but nothing. It's funny you mentioned the white light by where the charger plugs into the phone. When I first tried plugging it it I thought I saw it come on for a second and then it went out. Thanks for the ideas though.

    Are you plugging it into the wall or into the computer?

    I tried both. Also when I take out the battery and plug into the phone the light comes on for just a second and goes out. It wont flash with the battery in. Its the light right where you plug into the phone. I think that maybe the problem. Verizon is sending me a new phone mon. She told me to make sure I install my battery and sd card into the new phone. I don't think it is a battery problem. Or at least I hope not because then I will have to wait for a new battery.

    Yeah, it sounds like its more of a port problem. Is the new phone coming with a new cable? If so (or you already have a spare), try using a different cable just to eliminate that as being the culprit (whole lot easier to replace).
