Unhappy Storm won't turn on?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place, but...

Sometime last night my phone lost enough battery for the "radio" to turn off so I cannot make or receive calls, texts, etc. I woke up this morning and the phone was still on, but the battery life bar was empty and red. I turned off the phone and went back to sleep. When I woke up about an hour later, I plug my phone into the charger and try to turn it on. Nothing happens. I let it sit for a while, maybe 10 minutes, before trying again. I removed the battery and put it back in, and the red light came on, but there was nothing on the screen. I held down the end key to turn it back on, and again nothing. I let it sit for 20 minutes before trying again, and still nothing.

Once before my phone has been at the red, empty-ness but I just plugged it in instead of shutting it off and it was fine. Will my phone ever turn on again? Am I not waiting long enough?

And does the fact that I am using my MacBook to charge it make any difference? My wall charger has been broken since just a few days after I got the phone.

The red light is still on and it's been charging now for about an hour.
