    I went to bed last night with my Epic on the charger working just fine. I woke up this morning and now it wont even take a charge.

    Has anyone had this problem at all because I'm about to lose my mind in 43.5 seconds.

    I tried plugging it into different outlets, plugging it into my laptop, plugging it into my desktop, plugging it into my car....nothing works

    If no prankster removed your battery, or inserted it incorrectly, I'd be worried that the charging port has become wet or damaged.

    I moved your question to the Epic troubleshooting and support area, btw. ;)

    Is there a charging light coming on when plugged in? Try pulling the battery and re inserting. If all else fails take it in to Sprint. I have seen posts here before about this issue and if I remember correctly the outcome was a replacement battery and or handset.

    Sadly ive gone back to using my hero until i can figure it out. The worse part is is that the led actually does come on. But the phones not getting a charge.

    The phone knows that there is something plugged in it just wont give my phone any juice. Ive taken out my battery, put someone elses battery in my epic....my phone just wont take a charge.

    I called Sprint and they are telling me I have to take my phone 2 hours away from where I live to have it looked at.....

    I live in Downers Grove are you attending School at Southern? Are you coming up for Thanksgiving? I have a Sprint service center right here in Downers Grove you can ship me the phone and I will take care of it for you, get it repaired or replaced and then if you are coming up for the Holiday we can meet and Volla your problems are over. Let me know.

    Did you ever get this resolved? I am currently having the same issue with my Epic. I am ready to blow my mind too. Love the phone, but this is driving me crazy.
