    Apologies if this is already answered somewhere. Did try search and didn't find something similar.

    Just received a phone off ebay and seems like when I leave it overnight to charge back up, in the morning (only had it 2 days) the phone is totally dead. Won't power up unless I pull the battery then it seems fine.

    Is this a known issue? Do I need a new battery? If so, any suggestions for replacements?


    5/6 Update: Renaming thread since the phone seems fine throughout the day but 2 night when it likely goes into sleep mode for a "long" period of time, it seems to power down and then requires a battery pull to come back. Not sure if this is related to the random power down thread..

    Was it a brand new phone or used phone off ebay?

    My girlfriend had an 822 for a week, brand new, and it would just shut off overnight relatively often. I think its a known issue at VZW and is going to get fixed in a firmware update. That said, we returned it and got an 8x

    Yep. 2nd hand (ebay). I know.. "anything could have happened." This is why I want to find out if it's a known issue or potentially bad battery or whatever else from this community :). After I pull battery it's been fine and normal all day today.

    Actually .. what seems to be happening is when it sleeps for some long period of time it powers down. Like in this thread.

    Might be your password/pin, if you are using one.
    I had been having a similar issue up until recently. went through 2 or 3 different phones (not sure if I got my old one or a replacement one of the times.) before I finally figured it out.
    Before, I always used a password, and I would occasionaly have to pull my protective case off to pull the battery. Very irritating. Ever since I stopped using a password, I haven't had the issue.
    Don't know why this would happen, but it was the only thing I could think of that was different about my phone vs my wife's phone (same phone bought the same day.), since she hadn't been having that problem.
    Hope this helps, :D
