I came home from grabbing a bite to eat. About 30 minutes had passed and I was wondering why I havent heard my phone in a few. Checked and the notification light was blinking. Tried to press the power button to turn it on and nothing. Pulled the S Pen out because that would make it come on and still nothing. Pulled the battery and now all i get is the "Samsung Galaxy Note 2" screen. If i leave it there, after about 2 hours it will make the T-Mobile jingle and go into a boot loop. The boot loop lasts until i pull the battery again.

My phone was not rooted, no ROMs or anything. Only apps I had that did not come preinstalled on the phone were, Facebook, Tweetcaster, Instagram, Hill Climb Racing, Subway Surfer and my banking app.

My Galaxy 2 did something similar but i blamed it on the ROM I was using and figured I had bricked it some way. My faith in Samsung products is declining....

Are you able to connect it to a pc and is it recognized through ADB?

If so, I would try using ODIN and dumping the stock firmware and start from fresh.

Yeah i tried that after i talked to TMobile and my replacement phone was on the way. It is recognized in ODIN but it takes about 45 minutes to complete the process and then it fails.

Similar scenario/solution except never a bootloop.. just went from 6% battery to completely dead.

I didnt try to turn it on, but pressed (tapped power button) and the phone wouldnt do anything. It also didnt respond to a charge, plugged it in to several wall outlets in various rooms, until I pulled the battery for, like ive been trained through older droids, 30 seconds...

Replaced the battery, plugged it in and got it charging, waited til 20-30% before turning on phone to verify, and yes everything was working fine!!

No issues since

Re: Phone is dead...
I had the same problem, I had tjot my phone died but I know I had at leas y 80% of battery left. I tried using my phone nothing, plugged it up nothing. So I pulled the battery and it finally came on. This wad the 1st time it occured, the next time was like yours only the notification light was fladhing the power button and nor the home button worked. I removed apps that I tjought wad causing it. I had called Samsung and tmobile snd they never heard of such problem. They only suggested I do a hard reset. It hasn't happened in a while now but if it does I want a replacement, since I now know im not crazy, and you guys have had the same problem
