My Nexus 4 died when I was out then when I went to go charge it, it wouldn't turn on. I had this problem a couple of weeks ago, and I went in and they 'fixed' it for me but now it's happened again. I am currently away at school, if I need to can I go to a Koodo at the mall here to see if they can fix it or do I have to go to where I bought it?
It won't connect b/c the phone is not on, so it's not synching with your computer. unfortunately all data will be lost if you didn't have it backed up to your gmail account. Sometimes your phone will automatically upload your settings/apps/pictures etc. if you had auto-back up turn on, so lets cross our fingers that it was and you will get your stuff back once you sign in to you google account.
