Default Not Charging?

Ok so not sure what to do, mostly due to lack of time and patience..

I let my phone die today and when i plugged it in it had the orange led..i let it sit and it changed to an orange and green flash in the led..

i turned it on and the phone was powering but not holding a charge..

How long was it dead before attempting recharge? Did you attempt to use it with this low level of charge before recharging? You may have killed the battery.

It sounds like the phone allowed the battery to discharge too far, which is a bit disconcerting. Do you have another battery to try?

DONATE TO ME
My wifes phones from what it sounds like did the same thing. only the orange led light shows up while plugged in. Took it to the store and they did not have a phone to replace it with, so are ordering a new phone which will not get here till Thursday. The sales rep let my wife borrow her personal spare phone which is a feature phone...They said it wont effect the data plan... i am nervous and dont trust that we will be able to get the data plan back on the new DINC2 when it gets here on Thursday.

This situation sucks...

I personally have had that weird flashing aswell... although under different circumstances. I was downloading some torrent and saw that the battery was getting low so I plugged it in to my car and about 10min later it started doing that flashing. When I grabbed it the back felt incredibly hot so I disconnected it and turned the phone off. Then I removed the battery and it felt like it was going to burn my hand so I set it down and let it cool off. Afterwards, I put it back in and it was ok again.

It's possible you were putting some very high demands on the device, and did not lighten the load when you plugged it in, asking it to charge an already warm battery. Then again, something in the battery could have shorted.
