So the past two nights iv let my rezound battery go dead. The problem is it wont charge a dead battery. It charges if there is some battery and its on but when it is dead it is dead. The fix was I had to put the rezound battery in my tbolt to get a little bit of juice.

Any ideas or similar problems? I am unlocked with the htc unlock tool and running nils business sense?

Could it be a rom bug?

Don't let your battery die. It's bad for it anyway.

Once the battery is dead what does the LED on the phone do? If it blinks for a while it is either too hot or too dead to turn on, but it can still charge eventually. If the LED is not coming on at all I would pull the battery out and connect the charger with no battery and see if the LED comes on. If still no luck, get a new charger.

Blinks then Charges
I had the battery die on me once (on a prior battery and prior rezound). The phone will blink orange for a WHILE (I tried 3 different chargers not knowing what it was), but eventually started to charging. I think patience is needed. If, after 15 minutes, you still aren't charging, then that's something (but longer if the phone was also hot).

If I hit he power button with or without the battery in the led will light for a short time. I had it plugged in all night and no charge. I used two different plugs.

As for not letting it die. I know its not ideal but I couldn't help it.

I let my phone die completely once. I freaked out that my phone wasn't charging. I went onto HTC's site and it said that it could take 20 or more for the led to turn on while charging if the phone was completely dead. Just plug it in and be patient. It will charge and the led will eventually turn on.

I had this problem too, and am a little concerned I have a defective phone
So I had this issue happen this weekend. My daughter was using the phone when it died. Couldn't get it restarted. (I am unlocked via HTC, stock ROM with bloat removed. Phone is a week old.)

After messing with it using the factory charger/cable and other chargers/cable combinations I got nothing. Light would only intermittently come on for a second or two then go back off.

I charged it over night with the factory charger/cable. Didn't work the next day. Charged it all day and night with my old charger/cable that I know works. Didn't work.

Tried multiple variations of taking out the Battery/Sim/SD card and using the plug-in chargers & CPU USB variations with no success.

Luckily, I had ordered a new spare battery and it came in the mail before I returned the phone. Plugged it and it started up fine.

But my concern is that my phone is not properly charging. I have also had other similar charging/battery life issues that raise concern.

As far as not letting it die, **** happens and phones die, if this is a reoccurring problem, that in my mind is pretty unacceptable. A phone should charge when its plugged in no matter what. I may end up returning it to see If just got a defective phone/battery.

My phone will turn on then off and im starting to think it has something to do with the battery. But when it started it was in tue yelllow on the status bar, now i have it charging without being turned on and the indicator light is on but hopping mine will fire up soon. This all just happened to me within the last two hours lol, already called verizon to get a replacement but still going down there tomorrow.

--I agree, but once it gets down to 5%, why not just turn it off knowing the problems people are having so wide spread now.

Under the exact same conditions I have had the same problem with a warm battery reboot. It seems to occur when you are talking on the phone and let it die. Once it dies the phone will not reboot. My wife has the exact same phone. When I put her battery in my phone the phone works fine. My wife’s phone dies every night and she simply plugs it in the wall and it charges no problem. Again the conditions seem to be related to the battery dying while it is hot. If the battery dies while the phone is cool and not used then it seems to reboot no problem. I will go to Verizon tomorrow to look for a fix. I will let you know what happens.
