    Default Galaxy S3 not turning on at all

    Right, so this is the problem..
    My Galaxy S3 ran out of the charge completely last night so i plugged in my charger this morning and waited a while, because as you know once it starts to charge you can turn it on.
    Well, no charge display was showing or light, nothing.
    My partner has the same phone and there was charge on his so i took his battery out to try it in mine and still nothing, so i put his battery back in his and now his phone wont turn back on. (I have Anti virus installed)
    Any ideas?????
    Im a bit concerned that his phone wont turn back on now..(i am so in trouble!!!!!)
    Thanks in advance....

    I am afraid but the problem you are experiencing is much more technical .... so i would suggest you to seek professional support rather than looking out into the forums !!

    First off, it's generally not a good idea to let the battery go completely dead.

    Did you try a different charger/cable?
    How long did you wait?

    It's possible, though unlikely, that your phone completely discharged his battery - there would have been a huge amount of heat generated. It's more likely that your phone put some bad information into his battery about the current state.

    It's already a day later, so I'm assuming that by now his phone has been left on the charger long enough that it's recovered, is showing a charge and has been able to boot up?
