    I don't think you're doing anything wrong. I suggest you go back to the store and ask to swap the battery. See if that solves the problem. If not, ask them to replace it. Occassionally, there are some lemons made in the batch of phones.

    This happened to my 920 several times. To "turn it on" hold the power button and the volume down button for 10 or 15 seconds. This will do a soft reset. Most like the phone is "on" but locked up when this happens to you. Just reset it using the button combo I just mentioned; I bet it will work. To avoid this from occurring, you need to find the app that's causing the problem. For me it was Nokia Drive+ Beta. There may be other apps that cause the problem too. Maybe ditch all apps and add one back a day to figure out which is causing the issue.

    You cannot swap the battery in a 920. Not without disassembling the device, anyway.
