    My q9m=lemon

    well got my q9m today in the mail and whoa significantly not as described (eBay has failed me once again) it doesn't charge, if u can get it on it loops at the vzw logo or goes to the battery thing with an X in it, ugh is their any use in trying to revive it? my eyes fell in love with it but lordy no point in having a sexy paper weight

    Yeah give it a charge overnight and see what happens. Why did you buy it from Ebay if they failed you in the past? Don't mean to pontificate, but it's always buyer beware when it comes to Ebay.

    lol like most avid eBayers i<3 ebay, and it was cheaper than retail at verizon, paypal usually has me covered if anything like this happens so its never really been a big issue, also the battery is banged up and i can't tell if theres a hole in it but there is some crust near the dent but im probably going to return because it still is far from the condition advertised

    if there's crust, it's likely that the battery is leaking. I'd think that returning it may be the best bet. if it is leaking there's not telling what else is wrong

    well i just tried my cousin's original q battery and sure enough it powered up, seemed to work fine but eh, wouldn't trust it. not sure if the smell of bubblegum has anything to do with it.....

    if you can...could confirm battery issue by trying a battery from a carrier store. but yea..crust..sounds bad.

    my kids dont like crust either... =)

    might try and coax the seller into next day(ing) me a battery, i can live with the scratches but it just added to the problem of not having a 100% functional phone

    hey hipkik, seriously if you want a new battery I will ship you my old one. I upgraded to a new battery since the old one started to lose charge often. Hey I know its not new but still, its a free offer.

    Take an old toothbrush and open the battery case. Scrub the battery and the connections with the toothbrush to clean off the corrosion. Go ahead and throw away the battery that came with it. After scrubbing the battery case with the toothbrush blow it dry with a computer duster or the like and that should at least take care of any corrosion left on the Q.
