    Phone "was" Bricked... How can that be?

    Interesting thing happened last night... My GN decided to cease to work. Black screen.. nothing. I woke up at 3am to find it this way. I tried pulling the battery, hooked it up to a charger without battery, charging it for an hour (yes I verified the charger was good with another phone), hooking it up to the PC with and without battery and got the same results... No response! I figured the phone was done so I brought it into work thinking that I will be visiting my local VZ store to swap it out. At work I decided to try my spare battery I had at my desk that was charged up... what do you know!!! The GN fired right up!!! I put the other battery back in and it too fired right up! everything works but I did notice that when the phone was dead it did not charge the battery when plugged in last night. I'm scratchin my head with this one.

    Very weird stuff here... anyone have any opinions on this? Anyone have this issue before? Just curious.

    That is weird. I've experienced my phone not waking or booting up. But a battery pull fixed the problem right away. Mine has done it one time while on the charger overnight. And a couple of times while trying to boot into recovery from the power menu. Other than that all is good.

    Same thing happened to me with my Nexus One. I went back to the original battery after a few days and it was okay. Not sure why it happened either.

    I suppose I have been running the phone too hard and it just needed a break!
