I've been having charging issues for awhile...phone is temperamental. It always has to be off to charge, otherwise it goes into annoying loop of "detection" "no-detection" of the charger, and beeps repeatedly and flashes as if I'm plugging and un-plugging the charger continuously. After a round of that yesterday, I finally had to pull the battery. When I put it back in, I have nothing. The phone won't turn on, and the charger isn't being detected. I've tried many outlets and everything. For a split second last night, I got the battery icon to come on the screen like it was going to charge, and then it just went black again. the phone is 16 months old and I'm not eligible for an upgrade for another 8 months I never buy the phone insurance b/c typically I don't need it (in 12 years of owning cell phones, this is my first issue). Could it be the battery, the charging port, the USB charger, or the actual phone? Thanks!
