    Hi, Paul. Are you using an HD7 or an iPhone? Or were you just texting to someone who has an iPhone?

    Assuming you have an HD7, nothing happens when you hold the power button for a long period of time? Normally, a quick tap on the power button will bring you to the unlock screen, which I think is not appearing for you.

    Ok, I am 100% sure it has nothing to do with the other person's iPhone.

    Have you tried a battery pull? Take off the back cover and bull the battery out. Wait about 10 seconds, then put it back in. Then connect the charger cable.

    Yep, it's called a battery pull. So even after a battery pull, when you plug it into the charger the red LED still doesn't light up? Gosh, I don't know what to think. Your phone may have committed suicide. What were you texting? Just kidding.

    There is a way to force the phone to reset itself by pressing on a combination of buttons. If I'm not mistaken, if you hold down the Power + Vol Up + Vol Down at the same time you should get to a hardware menu that will allow you to factory reset the phone. I think that's the key combo, I'm not exactly sure. But, being that your phone won't even react to a Power button press, I am not sure this will work anyway.

    One other thing to try is a different charger and/or USB cable. Or a different battery.
