    So i woke up this morning and my phone was on the Touchshone and screen was blacked out i tried to turn it on it wouldnt come back. Tried taking out the battery...took the back cover off.....charged directly with the cable no touchstone and left it there for several minutes.....im thinking the battery must be done for it. Wondering if this happened to anybody else???

    That happened to me, but started charging after I removed the battery and put it back in. I'm thinkin that battery is toast.

    I had the same problem with my first pre and wound up having to get it replaced, unfortunately I never got an answer as to exactly what caused it

    It could be the phone or the battery. Just leave it plugged up for a while, and see what happen then.

    Sometime the cells in the battery just go dead without a warning.

    If the battery is dead then when you put in into the wall socket to charge a white usb symbol will pop up. If this is not happening then it is the phone that is not reacting to the charge. Take the battery out and plug it into the wall, does anything happen?
    Three other things that might be worth trying is:
    1) Cooling the phone then trying.
    2)Hold the power button down while switching the ringer switch back and fore
    3) Try the recovery steps documented on the webos-internals wiki page to see if you can get life that way
