    Just let it charge for a bit. I had same prob with my 8900 when I brought it home. I let batt run down all the way. Took a bit but finally came to life.
    Dunno if it helped but worth mentioning. I pulled sim out for a moment while I was flipping out. Doubt it mattered. Took hours (maybe 3) before I saw life. Afterwards just let charge fully should be fine.

    Yea had this happen to me also. I was freakin out. Just let it charge and it should be fine. It took mine maybe 20 min to come back on. I was running .237 OS at the time.

    You shouldn't lose anything. Wouldn't be scared. I freaked too, even did what you did and posted. It'll be fine.
    Btw, just incase something else ever happens be sure to backup. Always a good thing.

    Yep. Sooner or later you should be able to turn it on while plugged in. Then you'll get that big sigh of relief as it comes to life.

    I can't remember but I think I let mine charge and the red light went out. Then after about 10 min I hit the power button and it booted up. You don't have to wait for any light. Just try to power it up every 5 min or so. Mine did this when it died over night, I woke up to my bold not turning on at 5:30 in the morning I was in shambles until I figured out what I had to do and what happened.lol
