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

    I put the phone on the charger like I do every night but this morning when I went to wake it up it wouldn't respond. I held down the power button and it wouldn't turn on and the charge LED wasn't lit :/

    I pulled the battery out and reseated it and then it turned on finally but the battery only shows a 50% charge. It's almost like the battery 'disconnected' during the night. bizarre but so glad the phone wasn't dead!

    anyone else see anything like this?

    P.S. - not rooted and no mods to phone

    This happened to me twice. Once in the monring after charging it during the evening. Also, it happened when I tried to restart my phone. It completely died, woudn't charge, and I had to pop the battery out. I am still debating on whether I should exchange the phone or not.

    it's only happened to me the one time and has been the only issue I've seen with the phone since day one. hopefully it will be okay. curious if it's the phone or the battery though...

    What apps do you have installed on your TB? Maybe it's a hanging App? Something is causing your phone not to come out of standby. As far as the discharge of your battery, no clue. Could be a connection into wall or phone.

    Good luck

    the newest app is the Amazon App Store. I wonder if it was trying to update and got annoyed because it wasn't allowed to? hopefully it just never happens again :)
