    I recently bought my G1 less than a month ago about a week into January. Today, my G1 suddenly died. I was using it before I showered and when I came back from my shower, it just died. I almost had a heart attack. The battery life wasn't near dead either. When I charged it, it didn't response, it didn't have the orange light where it usually had it. I tried turning it on too but that didn't work. Is there something wrong with my battery? I'm pretty sure it wouldn't die in less than a month. :thinking: Help is appreciated.

    I would think if you did not get the orange charging light, there is something else wrong besides the battery. I would suggest calling customer service at T Mobile.

    make sure the contacts on the battery are touching sometimes if I sit on my g1 the wrong way it resets because (i think) the contacts separate for a second.

    Today, I took the battery out and put it back in. Then I turned it on, it worked fine. Then I went to bed and when I woke up today this morning, my phone didn't respond again. I tried charging it, turning it on with no luck. I never sat on my phone ever nor have I ever dropped it. Does anyone else have any suggestions?

    well, you said it is less than a month old. I would exchange it, if your having problems this early in why chance it?

    If you can't exchange it for some reason I would contact t-mobile, I've heard they will send you an extra battery for free.

    If it's less than 30 days old, you can insist they exchange it rather than send it away to be fixed.
