    so I was using rom manager to put on cyanogenmod and get rid of froyo because of the terrible battery life and now i cant turn my phone on. I saw it going through the back up stages and everything but i cant even get into recovery mode. any ideas?

    How much battery did you have when you started the upgrade?

    It may not charge now that it's screwed up. You may to borrow a battery from a friend or go to Verizon and get a charger that will charge the battery while out of the phone. Your problem be totally battery related.

    Had this happen to me once. Thought i broke the phone boot because it wouldn't turn on. Just have to let it sit on the charger for a good while. Just make sure the white charge led is on.
