if your phone can't boot after a deep discharge, try hooking it up with the original cable to a computer USB port.

I guess my first questions is how are you charging it in the first place? USB or Electric outlet? USB usually takes longer and can be a weaker charge.

Second, like some people mention are us using another charger by a different company like HTC and etc..?

This will help us understand the issue better to help you.

Don't feed the troll... otherwise you will just get more oxygen/blood deprived answers from someone trying to type one handed, not skip a stroke and sound like they aren't trolling. Probably has a thing for the latest and greatest but is locked in to a contract....

After the charge completely depleted, i hooked it to the wall using the nokia supplied charger for abt 7 hrs. The phone did not respond on trying to power it up. I tried all button combos, plugging to comp, plugging and unplugging multiple times etc (you name it and I have tried) but none of them worked. I tried to resurrect it for a full. I finally gave up and swapped for a another device at the ATT store.

The device should reach you guys via your channels for your R&D.

I just bought the phone. After 3 hours of charging using the Nokia charger. Phone is still not booting. After connecting the charger cable it vibrates and the 3 button lights turn on, but thats all that happens.

If the Lumia 900 is drained completely it will not power on until it gets a 20% charge. If your phone wasn't charged to that in 3 hrs. you should take it back and get another phone.

I want to say that it was at least two hours if not 3 before my phone came on from a total discharge.

The phone would vibrate and flash if I plugged or unplugged etc... I played with it enough that it came on was still pretty much dead on the charge but once on and plugged in it actually charged so what I read above that it won't charge if its not on seems to hold true.

Of course that was all before the update.

I experienced the same thing last night. When it finally did power back on, it was at 22%... And hard reset!

Calling it a PITA is an understatement.
