(1) DON'T LET YOUR BATTERY GET TOO DISCHARGED! or you won't be able to
power up the phone
A quick test to see if the USB power circuitry is working: power up your
phone, connect the charger, remove the battery. A good phone will remain
powered up, powered only by the USB circuit.
Test this with both the provided USB power supply and with the USB cable
plugged into a POWERED USB port on a computer. Perhaps the charger is
DOA or perhaps the cable is damaged.
If you're using a laptop, I've heard that not all USB ports on laptops
are powered, to conserve power.
Let us know what you find.
