Default Bad battery

Just wanting to see if anyone has experienced this...

I went to use my spare battery yesterday for the first time in about a month, and it was TOTALLY dead. When I try and turn the phone on the bottom buttons would just light up a couple times and shut off.

Put it on the charger and left it for a couple hours and still does the same thing.

Bad battery? Has anyone experienced this?

Put it (the battery only) in the freezer for a few minutes. Try it again.

Thanks for the suggestion... .Hopefully you meant 24 hours when you said "a few minutes"...

Put it in there last night and forgot about it.

ooops.

I had that happen once too. The phone just shut down on it's own one time. It wouldn't restart, the button lights would just flash. I tried everything. In frustration, I finally just smacked the phone on the table, pretty hard, hit the power button and it rebooted.
