Battery won t charge or operate phone Problem - T-Mobile MDA Compact Smartphone
Okay, I searched and searched until I found a solution that worked for me. I tried the USB thing, I got my phone to turn on once, but never to charge. Here's what I did:
(Do this at your own risk)
I zapped my battery with a 9v battery. One wire on each terminal and then held it to the MDA battery (positive to positive, negative to negative) for about three seconds. I did this about five times. (Don't let the wires touch while they are connected to the 9v battery.) I IMMEDIATELY plugged my phone into a wall charger, NOT my computer (The computer wouldn't charge my phone). As soon as it was connected to the wall charger, I turned it on. After starting up, the orange light came on, and it started charging. I was skeptical about this solution at first, but trying everything else I resolved to do this and then if it didn't work buy a new battery, but it worked and my MDA is charging as I'm typing. The original ideal came from a post on the xda-developers website by dew1989. I added the additional steps that got my battery charging again. I hope this helps!

T-mobile Compact iii screen failure
Sometimes the SIM card will cause this problem. The first thing I'd do is ask T-mobile if they can diagnose this issue down to your SIM card and have it replaced. If that's what it is anyway.
How often do you turn it off? ( you should turn it off regularly, at night when it's charging or whenever ) Do you have a lot of stored info that you do not use? It could be corrupted, try erasing some things you don't use anymore. Just a couple things to try.
