Droid won't turn on
What should I do since my droid isnt turning on. The battery died yesterday then 2 hrs later I went home and plugged it into the charger. Then 30 min later it wasnt turning on. I know I could just get a replacement but I have texts that came in while it was off.Switched from Storm to Droid now I'm happier then ever.

If you got messages while the phone was off they are still sitting on the server waiting to be delivered, which means if you replace before the original device can be turned on they should be sent to the new device.
I'm not sure if you tried pulling the battery and putting it back in to make sure it's properly seated but if you have and that hasn't helped I would take it in to the store.
Out of curiosity did a white light come on that is seated in the charge port? If not it might not have actually been charginging. Just a thought.

i dont know if your in the same boat as me but..last niite i was watching the football game..my phone was 75% charged...then all the sudden it turned off and now it wont power on..i plug it into the charger and the little light comes on the side..not the red notification light just the white one by the charger port...i bought this phone second hand from someone that worked at verizon..im pretty sure there not going to replace it, unless i can convince them that i bought it from them

Mine died last night too.
It was 70-80% charged when I went to bed at about 0200, at 1015 I tried to turn it on and it wouldn't work. Tried charging and nothing; no light. Took the battery out and put it back in and then it started working.
I cannot have this happen again! I need to be in contact and have the alarm working.
Anyone know what might have happened?

yeah, I just had a similar thing happen to me. Went to unlock it and nothing. Took the battery back out and put it back in. Nothing. Took the battery out again and it finally turned on when I pressed the power button. Had 80% battery. Thought I was going to be making a trip to verizon.
