I turned my phone off before bed last night and plugged it in to charge it. When I got up this morning my phone would not turn on. I tried plugging it in again, thinking the battery was dead, but it would not charge. It seems like there is no power at all going to my phone. I tried different outlets, as well as using my computer to charge it. Nothing. HELP!!

Have you tried a different charging cable?

I would try removing the battery, waiting for about 30 secs. and re-inserting the battery.

Ok so this is what I have tried so far.
Different outlets using different charging cables.
My computer using different charging cables.
I have removed the battery for a period of time.
My neighbours computer and her charging cable!
Still nothing!!!!

What else can I do??

If the phone does not power on when you connect it to a charging cable, it is possible that your phone is dead. I'd try to find someone who has the same BB model and use their battery before you run out and purchase a replacement battery. There is no point getting a replacement battery if your phone croaked.

Sounds like a battery or charging port issue. I would try replacing the battery online; they can be pretty cheap if you look hard enough. If you don't want to wait for shipping and all that, you could also look into upgrading your phone with whatever Tab is available?
