Specs: Windows XP

samsung nexus s GT-I9020T won't boot. I have tried taking both the battery and the SIM card out for 20 minutes and re-inserting them both. Tried powering up through USB cable, still nothing. Unit appears dead even thought battery is fully charged.

Sounds like its time to take the phone into your provider and have them look at it. If it's refusing to boot, that is usually not a software problem but a physical problem.

Do you have another battery you can try booting it with? It may be that the battery itself has malfunctioned. Or maybe try booting it up while it's plugged in with power?

Thanks Jonas for the suggestions. Tried booting it using the other fully charged battery that I had and also tried booting from wall power along but, alas, nothing.

I fear the motherboard has fried and plan to take it it for hardware repair
My ownly concern is that it's fried so soon - I've only had it since Nov. 2011
and had expected it to last a good while longer than this. I just hope that the
cost of repair will be cheaper than buying a new phone.

If anything it should be under warranty still.. I know that some providers include the 3 year warranty. Yours didn't come with that?
