    I was in an airport tonight when I received a check in notice from someone regarding foursquare. My phone completely froze on me. So...I took out the battery to do a soft reboot and now my phone will not turn on. The red light turns on like it wants to start and then it just goes to a repetitive four blinking red lights and nothing else. I tried to connect it to my computer but it is not recognized by the desktop manager.

    Help this newbie.....please!

    Try a new battery?
    Mine froze up. Put a new battery in it and it worked perfectly after that. There seems to be a LOT of this happening as of late. Normal usage life of the Storm battery just becoming a problem?
    Oh, mine would not boot up on A/C power with the old battery in it either!!
