Dont Let your Battery Die Completely!!! Whatever you do, do not let your battery die completely. It is an adventure to recharge it. Initially its kinda scary, when you experience "the white screen of death" after the verizon logo. Basically you have to charge your phone before it will even accept a charge. Its like charging your phone so you can charge your phone. It's about 2+ hrs before it will even accept a charge, and before the charging batter will appear. After that it still about 6 more hours before your phone is somewhat charged. And with all of this your phone must be off. So your looking at atleast 8 hours without your phone. So my advice to all of you out there, DO NOT LET YOUR BATTERY DIE.
