    Hi everyone, hope someone can help. I postponed a software update as I am not in a wireless zone and didn't want to use my data for the update. I selected the postpone for one day option. I got a little postponement symbol in the top left hand corner.

    My battery was empty so I plugged the phone in, but it now won't charge. I'm not getting the white lights, or the battery charging symbol, and needless to say the phone won't turn on. I have taken out the battery and put it back in, tried charging via a USB charger in my laptop, but to no avail.

    It's now been plugged into the wall for two hours, but nothing. I have tried pressing all three buttons together and at first was getting battery low, cannot download, but now not even that.

    I am so stressed out and worried about it...what the heck is going on?! Has anyone else had this experience? Its almost as if android has taken the hump because I couldn't download the damned update and now won't let me use my phone.

    I struggle to see the correlation between what you have done and what has happened. It may simply be a big coincidence. Are you sure that your charging cable is working - or your charging port on the phone? A few people have reported problems with charging and it normally comes down to one of these two things. Check for gunk in the charging port and/or try another cable if you have one.

    Well, the problem has been solved! I plugged it in to my PC at work and it has come back to life, what a relief! Looks like a charger issue, though I don't know why my laptop charger wouldn't work either. I guess because the power from it was too weak!
