    I know a thread like this exists all over the Internet but they talk about the boot up screen. Mine wont even get to the boot up screen. My phone just died, I get no lights or boot up screen. I didnt drop it, break it and it didnt touch water. The phone was fully charged went it decided not to turn on.

    I've tried leaving the battery out, hitting up volume, power and home at same time. I've tried a friends battery, left it plugged in from the wall and computer. I've had the phone for a year and a half with no problems and I don't have insurance.

    Anyone else have this problem? Any help would be appreciated.

    Try plugging it into a running (not sleeping) PC for >5 hours. Then try a long press of the power button.
