Okay, well I'm glad some of you have experienced this, but what's the deal with it happening to SO MANY people on the same night?!?

I got mine on the Thursday before the Friday that the Tilt was released in early October - is it the amount of days it's been running, or the fact that it's near the new year? Hm...

Thanks for the suggestions. No luck. Won't turn on no matter what combination of things I try, nor does it turn on when plugged in without a battery.

What was that about hard-resetting it? Can you hard reset it if it won't turn on?

good point! I didn't even think about this. My first thought in response to your post was that att sent out an update or something to catch people flashing their phones but its happening to people who didn't. I'm afraid my local att is going to give me a hassle about replacing my phone. last time i did it with my 8525 they made me pay for it and then receive a rebate on my plan to make sure it wasn't "owner caused error"

The one thing I noticed that is different about this new kaiser I have is that the battery is made by DynaPack, the battery in the kaiser that has this issues was a Samsung battery.

May this be the culprit?

my phone = dead = samsung battery.

I tried all that stuff with the battery, and plugging in without the battery and every which way from Sunday. No go, which is why I took it to an AT&T store and got it replaced today!!

On the other freaky stuff being mentioned in this thread: cue audio of The Twighlight Zone theme

Its not the battery, I went to an ATT store last night where the lady had some tilts in stock.

Che popped my battery into another tilt and it booted right up, she also tried a new battery in my =dead= tilt and nothing.

Its a hardware issue from the phone, not the battery.

No the battery doesn't do anything with this issue. My phone just went dead like this and I am on the phone with AT&T warranty dept. My gf tilt has samsung battery and I have dynapack. Doesn't make any difference.

Same issue. Bought on the 23 of Dec. That night it was fully charged. In the morning it would not turn on. Plugged it in and a red light. Let it sit for over an hour to no avail. Returned for a new one. Same programs and more loaded now and no probs.

It did prompt me to get the Sprite $10.00 upgrade to 6.1. Great Program and allows direct back-up to my TabletPC. 48meg backup in a little over 2 min. (Also got the GPS Tracer - Terminator)

Here is the link if you need it.
