Having an odd issue. When my battery is fully dead on my Bionic, it will not charge, even so that I can boot up the phone. If I'm booted into Android and plug it in via USB it charges just fine. Any ideas?

Are you trying to charge it with your computer or plugging it into a wall outlet? Its pretty common with most phones that if the battery is completely dead it will only charge if you plug it into a wall outlet. If it has any charge in it, it should charge just fine from a computer, If it is completely dead you will likely have to use a wall outlet to charge it.

I had a similar issue with my og droid. I plugged it usb and nothing happened. I just let it chill there a while and came back in an hour or so to find it just fine.
