    Someone else started a thread on this back in May, but my new phone's screen just died. I know the phone is on because I occassionally see the light blink and when I plug it into a computer, it connects.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Have you tried a battery pull? If after a full reset from a battery pull or a 10-second press of the power button (then a restart) you never see the screen come on, even while it's booting up, then this is almost certainly a hardware problem and you'll need to arrange for a return under warranty, or take it back to your carrier's store (whatever's appropriate).

    I tried a battery pull multiple times, as well as holding the power button. I was hoping that since others had reported similar issues there might be a software problem.


    This sucks. My receipt and the box are all at home. I'll have to wait till tomorrow to return it.
