1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    So, this morning my wife unplugged her D3 from the charger and pressed the power button to wake the phone. The back light came on but she got nothing on the screen. So, she held the power button to turn it off then turn it back on except it hasn't turned on since. I've tried multiple battery pulls, tried booting into safe mode and factory restore mode. Nothing. When it's plugged in I can't get any verification as to whether it's charging or not. I took it to Verizon and they tried a new battery to no avail. I have a new one coming but of course she didn't save anything on the SD card. Any suggestions on how I can get this thing booted up? Or at least talking to my computer so I can pull her assorted pictures and videos off? Thanks!

    Yeah, you come and explain how if she wants to be sure not to lose stuff she needs to make sure she saves it to the sd card. I'll come to your funeral... ;-)

    Pictures and videos usually store to sd card by default. Try using a card reader and put card into that, then see if her stuff is readable on pc. Paid apps wont be lost, but data may be, unless they were backed up in titanium...

    New Development. Just for giggles I plugged the D3 into my computer and the light next to the usb port lit. Is this usually on during normal charging or is it just a sign of life indicator telling me "yeah I'm here but not happy"?

    The light is usually on when it is drawing USB power. Did you try powering up?

    Did you try cleaning the battery contacts with a clean pencil eraser? This works more often than you might think. Good luck
