|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.
