    So, my phone died yesterday. I pluged it in USB before i went to bed. And I woke up in the morning. I unplugged it and then tried to turn it on. Didnt turn on. So I went to school thinking that it was still dead and that the charger wasnt fully plugged in. Now, I plug it in, try to turn it on. And nothing. But 1 min ago it turned on it was like DROID and it went into the eye things. But then the red eye froze and it said DROID and the red eye. And it did this for a awhile. Then it stopped. Black screen. And then started again.

    wat do

    Pull the battery and reinstall it. Do not try to turn it on. Put it on a wall charger for an hour or more. It should start up then.

    You have three choices -- do a hardware reset, flash the appropriate SBF, take it back to Verizon. Do the hardware reset.

    I totally agree with FBM. Do the hard reset.

    Good luck and keep us posted.

    Alright thanks. But how can I do that?

    It sounds like somehthing that would delete all my files :/

    and if it does, would i have to get it reconnected with my carrier?
    (AKA would it still contain my phone number)

    Pull battery.....put it back in.....hold X button and power on until after moto M appears. When you see the triangle with ! Inside hit volume up and camera button. You should have the reset option there.

    The only thing you will lose is data...your apps will auto restore. Once you log into google again give it a few minutes to work and they should all come back. Nothing on your sdcard will be affected.

    What he said. Your phone will be completely reset so you'll have to set it back up again, but there's no way to avoid this. If this doesn't fix your phone you'll have to take it back to Verizon.

    Good luck!
