    Than you may want to pose your question in the Epic 4g Touch (Galaxy S II) forums, not the Epic 4g (OG Galaxy S) forums. This is where the folks with the slider keyboard are.
    That said, I have never seen a blinking blue light on my Epic 4g, and have never read of any similar symptom.
    As a first troubleshooting step, I would remove the battery for 15-30 seconds, and try to power on again after reinserting it. If that still doesn't work, than it sounds like it's bricked. If you have not done anything to it, head on down to your local Sprint service center for repair or replacement.

    You need a new battery. Blinking light means your battery gave out. Solid blue is a brick. Takr it to sprint and say you want a new battery from warranty.

    Just throwing this out there - press and hold the power button for 5 or 6 seconds.

    I just got my new galaxy g2 phone, fully charged battery, used it for a day, and in morning awoke to blinking blue light. It means low 6% low battery. I had to take battery out and reinstall it to get message it was low battery. once phone is on, put it on charger.

    Nice, you brought up a extremely old thread. -_-
