I had heard that it was a good idea to discharge new phone batteries and recharge them from zero.... unfortunately mine would not come back on after trying to charge it back up. I used the supplied charger and other micro usb chargers, just in case it was a faulty charger(unlikely). The boot up of the phone stops at the AT&T splash screen logo after the NOKIA logo and will not proceed any farther. A real bummer. I've tried all the soft and hard resets... nothing has worked. I will most likely have to exchange for a new one tomorrow.... the day after the "Launch Day" today... Easter Sunday, as most every AT&T store is closed. Auspicious start. Anyone else possibly brick their new phone? Any other advice to try?

How long have you tried to charge it. What I mean is if the battery is dead really dead you need to plug it in for a while before trying to turn it on maybe like 30 minutes. I know it will try to power its self hack on the second you plug it in but just leave it alone for a while let it do whatever its going to do for like a half an hour.

I left the Lumia 900 plugged into the usb charger all night... over 8 hours. Didn't touch the phone at all. Nothing different. I tried turning the phone on with it plugged into the charger as well as disconnected. Nothing different. Nothing works. Bummed for sure.

Wow that sucks I hope they exchange it for you tomorrow. I haven't let mine get below 20% yet. I might have to give it a try later in the week.

The same thing happened to mine. It would not recognize any charger so I had to "wake up" the battery via an old trick I used on my Nintendo Advance which was in storage for 4 years. Basically plug in the charger until the capacitive buttons light up. Once they go off unplug the charger and plug it back in. Each time it will charge the battery a bit more. Repeat until it keeps charging on it's own. Good luck.

Just got it exchanged! I'm all set again! Very happy to be back!!! The AT&T store only had one cyan colored one left! I was most likely the first customer at 9am when the store opened. Interesting, since most all AT&T stores were closed yesterday with Easter Sunday. I'm just pleased to back up and running. Thanks for all the suggestions and tips though.
