    And of course I can't switch online to my older phone and Verizon phone support is closed. real crappy week and this made it worse.

    Stock phone. Right before this happened, I was trying to wake up the phone with the power button and all that lit up was the buttons on the bottom.....this has happened before and I thought as usual I just need to do a battery pull and it will start up fine.

    nope.

    only thing I see is a blank backlit screen, no moto logo, nothing. No other lights appear on the unit. Tried removing battery and sd card and powering with wall charger. no go. also tried holding x key while powering on. nothing

    what the hell happened? i forsee a grim future where i have to track down the over 130 apps I downloaded on a replacement phone. Is there anyone to recover my current phone? Thanks

    Ok well what I would try first is plugging you phone into the wall charger. Make sure it is the wall charger. Let it charge for like 30 min to an hour and try to turn it back on. This happened to me once and it was because the battery was dead.

    The phone is stock and I've never messed with bootloader. How do I check on this?
    I did notice that when I plug it in my PC via USB, my computer recognizes something being attached.

    How did you charge your batteries, did you use wall charger or something else?

    Right now it's on a wall charger. I usually charge via computer USB, wall power, or since I use two batteries, I finish one battery and put it on this moto battery slot charger I got from eBay that you put the battery into and charges via USB. I've done this for months with no problem.

    Try leaving it on the charger for awhile. Sometimes if the battery dies. It won't charge any other way but the wall charger.

    no problem. do you guys think I now just have a unrecoverable paperweight? i'm leaving it wall charged with battery and sd inside overnight. If there's no luck in the morning, I'm calling vzw to switch to my older lg flip phone temporarily while I deal with the dead droid. ugh , crappy crappy week
