    It died while i was out and about, obviously. but when i took it home, I wanted to play with it while it was plugged in.

    I plug it in, and it doesn't recognize it's charging (it recognizes it's hooked up to my computer though), and then promptly dies and starts charging.

    is this because it's plugged into my computer?

    Most won't let you turn it on until your at least 5% charge. I'm sure that is the issue. Which in that case shouldn't be an issue. All my phones do this. Peace!

    If this is the first charge plug it in to the wall outlet while it's powered off. Let it sit for a few hours. Do not try to turn it on. After about 3 hours check back. It should be at least 50% charged.

    The Computer USB port only supplies 550mAh of power whichbis about half of what the wall charger supplies (1A).

    I agree 100% with everything you said, except that after 3 hours on a wall charger it will be at 50%. My phone goes from near zero to 100% in less than two hours. His might take a little longer since it's the first charge, but unless my phone is odd, his should be at 100% within 3 hours.

    I was assuming that there might be a problem with the battery. Sometimes you can kill the battery inns way in which the only way to get a full charge is to let it stay plugged in over night.

    Yes indeed! If you haven't already before you do anything when you take it out of the box.. charge to 100% then let die. Then back to 100%. In this time the battery will last its longest from a good burn in....hope you got it running bro!

    Mine would be completely charged, from 0% in about 1.5-2 hours.

    My first charge took forever it seemed, probably around 3 hours give or take to fully charge. It gets better, now it only takes about an hour or just a slight bit longer to fully charge.
