I suspect it may be a bad battery, but I feel other opinions would be beneficial.
I've had the phone about a week (given to me by a friend) and at first it seemed to charge like it should.
I would depower the device, get a blinking greenish/yellow light as it and when it was fully charged it stayed green.
Now the past few days, it refuses to charge.
More often than not, it is a solid grey/white screen with a battery icon and a blue lightning bolt over top.
It will not boot to the OS even when plugged in, there is no blinking green light.
Sometimes there is a solid red light. But it goes away after about thirty seconds (when plugging it in, putting the battery back in, etc.)
On the rare occasion that I do pull the battery and the OS does show up, it says "Low Battery" with an empty battery icon and a little plug next to that.
When I unplug it, it says "Low Battery. Powering handheld down" or something to that effect. Even when it is powered down and the green light does blink, after six plus hours, there is still no charge.
I am using an iGo (Input 100-240 Volt/Output 4.2-6 volt) wall charger.
I am at a complete loss of what to do now, besides head to my Verizon store and ask them to check the battery.
I would really appreciate any help.
