    I just got a replacement phone, and now twice it has refused to turn on after being on a wall charger overnight. It is the factory charger.

    Usually the phone is just on after charging overnight, and lights up when unplugged. On this phone, nothing. Hitting the power button does nothing. Soft reset brings it back to life, and everything works fine after that.

    I never got this with my original 822. Unfortunately it died from the "unable to locate bootable option" error, and had to be replaced.

    Sometimes certain apps do this and give you black screen of death if left in the background, when I use 6sec(vine client) and use it in the background or press the lock button and leave for a few minutes it will not turn on and will be black screen of death. So just try closing apps before charging and try airplane mode.

    Fyi - after updating to GDR2, the problem has gone away. No more 822 lockups after charging.
