    Soo my son was watching Sprint tv and the battery died. Or so I thought. The phone died it seems. I have taken battery out and put it back in, but it is not charging or doing anything. No indicator it's charging, won't turn on, even after leaving it on the charger for a few minutes. Also tried my son's phone charger and no response. Tried different sockets in the house too lol. WTF????

    Wow Scary! After the battery pull can you boot to recovery? Vol Down Call and End Button? Makes sure it isn't plugged in?

    I've read in other threads/forums that this happens to this phone for some odd reason. The most certain thing is that who knows. haha At least your back.

    Batteries that are hot should not be charged until they cool down. Perhaps the Moment has a feature to wait until the proper temperature is met.

    Since placing 2.1 on the phone, that has happened to me twice where I thought my phone was dead.

    I ended up pulling the battery and let it sit for a while (not intentionally but hoping that the phone would come back to life by wishing for it :rolleyes:) and SHAZAM, it turned back on.

    Real weird...

    wonder if the battery was so discharged that it needed a precharge before it charged seen it happen on my old mogul before.

    I thought that too, but then noticed when my son plugged it back in for me he didn't actually plug it in all the way so it didn't start charging til I fixed it. If this is going to be an issue I'm not sure how I feel about that. Reminds me of my mom's hairdryer that shuts off when it gets hot and I am halfway through my hair.

    sounds like an over heating thing then. Makes me wonder if the stuff around the processor failed and cauused the processor to overheat. Id get a replacement via sprint its under warranty and tell them what happened. Happened once will happen again. Replace it asap before your out of warranty or something big happens.
