Wow. Give people more than three minutes to answer your inquiry.


Your battery is dead. Give it 2 to 3 hours to charge and then with the charger still connected remove the battery and replace to reboot.

Give it some time for someone who knows the answer to respond. You don't need to bump.

By new, do you mean new from a carrier or new from eBay?

If you charge the battery for 2-3 hours and still no go, then you may need a new battery.

You can also try a different charger.
Has it already been 2-3 hours?

Something is probably either wrong with the charger or the battery. Go to a store and ask them if you can try out a new battery/charger.
