    After 4p my battery died and I was mobile so I waited until I got home to recharge. Unfortunately, the battery would not charge. Well it shows the charging icon but it doesn't charge at all. I was really worried because I have all my data in my phone and did not want to return in that condition.

    I then tried charging it with my HTC Titan charger it still did not work.. so last resort was using the iPad charger.. after 30 minutes it showed a sign of life. Pheww...

    So that's it.. I'm taking this for an exchange now.. wish me luck so I dont have to deal with this battery annoyances again..

    Use the backup feature before exchanging, you'll save your accounts, txt messages, and app list (but no the app data).

    You've been posting in all of the battery threads. Why did you need to make a separate one?

I'm guessing they sold a ton of these devices this weekend and a handful are having issues, that are getting blown out of proportion.

    If you can't make a positive contribution to a thread move on to the next one. Some of you are running out of warnings.

    OP when these batteries are new letting them discharge to zero can be bad news. Doesn't happen every time but sometimes they won't charge back up. Best to keep a minimum charge on your batter until it has been charged a few times.

    Dave's post reminded me of something with my Lumia 900 I noticed I got better life after I did a system reset. In addition it took a while for it to calibrate itself. I do noticed some days it just dies like there is not tomorrow still but those things could help.

    I've been posting in all of the battery threads? If by all you mean 2 of them than yes.

    One of the two is a poll and the purpose is simple I want to know the chance of getting a 920 with a good battery. This is something that I normally don't do, but based on that result I decided to purchase an insurance just incase if the battery is failing again.

    Also I think it's good for people to know some battery issues can be fixed and some just can't.. like mine. So rather than waiting until it gets close to the 14 days mark and get screwed because they don't have the color you want, you do it early and score yourself a 920 that you want.

    Thanks much Blake. A good tip indeed.

    I went to the store but they did not have the white one so they ordered one for me.
    I came back, tried to recharge it but this time it did not turn on at all. So I assume it's dead.

    Bummer
