    Question RIP 6600, any help?

    Dang. Dropped my first a year ago and now my second looks to have just slowly faded away while I held it gently in my hands.

    Symptoms, screen faded and the green light went out. Won't reboot, nada. Plug it in and the light is red but no interaction.

    Any suggestions?

    Drat, I was hoping to make it to the VZW 6800, whenever that would be .

    Any help appreciated.

    I guess I should have seen it coming, I did the new VZW patch and ever since then it has been VERY quirky.

    have you tried a different battery?

    when you take the battery out with the phone plugged in, does the charge lamp shut off or stay on?

    can you feel the phone and/or battery heating up when charging?

    have you left the battery off the phone for a while.. say.. overnight?

    I agree what when the batteries end of life comes, weird things start to happen. Sprint replaced mine for a nominal fee, but that was after it took a swim in the pool... right after I figured out my dead battery was causing problems.

    check the side contacts, i.e. where the black first meets the grey. See if the phone 'll turn on if you apply pressure.
