1) is the power source active (some wall sockets have a switch to render power there inactive -Australia)
2) is the charger plugged into an active power strip or an active wall socket?
3) is the charger damaged?
4) how long has the cell phone been charging? If the battery was completely discharged, it may take a bit for it to show a screen of it charging.
5) if the battery will not accept a charge, it will have to be replaced. Lithium batteries retain longer life spans if you charge them when power level is down to about 20 percent, NOT when they are completely discharged.
6) Better write down the battery number and amps when you pull the battery and keep it with phone documentation.
STEP 1: Open the box that your new SafeLink Wireless phone came in and remove the contents.
STEP 2: Unravel the power cord and insert it into your new cell phone, then plug it in. Wait for the phone to charge fully before activating it. This will take approximately one to two hours.
STEP 3: Locate the activation card that came inside your SafeLink box. Follow the instructions on the card to activate your phone line. If no activation card is present in your SafeLink box, your phone is already activated.
STEP 4: Power on your cell phone and make a test call to confirm that it is properly activated. If the call goes through, your line is now active and ready to use.

The charge adapter maybe faulty. If your cell phone is a few months old, then it would be still under warranty. Take it back to the place where you purchased it and have it repaired or replaced under warranty.
Most cells use LiPo batteries, which can be very tempermental. If they are fully discharged (used until they will not power item any longer) more than a few times, they can lose the ability to hold a charge. Also, check the phone's users manual for correct battery charge times, as many Li/Po batteries will show a full charge before they are actually fully charged, particularly for the first few charges. If your battery isn't holding a charge, the easy fix is to replace it, but if the phone/battery is less than 6-12 months old, I'd ask my cell provider to replace it as defective.
This is because the only power the phone is receiving is from the power cord from the wall. When this problem occurs, it is because the battery in your phone is completely dead and not capable of receiving a charge (in other words the battery is fried). the solution would be a new battery. A tip on avoiding this problem in the future would be to only charge the phone to a "full charge" and then remove the charger. Avoid leaving it on charge all night while you sleep as this is the main cause of battery death. Also car chargers are another culprit, which is an un-known fact. a car charger uses a different kind of electricity which is stronger. If you have ever noticed that if it takes an hour to fully charge your phone when it is plugged into the wall, it may only take approximately 20 minutes to fully charge the phone in your car. So you if you must charge your phone in your car, charge it for no longer that 10 to 15 minutes at any one-time. good luck
With your phone powered on, connect the charger to the phone. With your phone unlocked, press and hold the END key to power off your phone. The phone will now shutdown and then restart to the charging screen. As soon as you see the screen with the battery and the word "Charging..." under the battery, press and hold the END key to power on the phone. This must be done before the phone has a chance to display "No Battery".
how long have you had the phone? usually the longer you have the phone the more it uses battery. the same with cameras, laptops, etc... my guess would be that the battery is going bad. ive had a few phones for just a few months and the battery would barely hold a charge for a day. so try getting a new battery and hopefully that will solve the problem :). also make sure there arent any games or programs constantly running on the phone as that can also drain the power pretty quick. hope this helps!
This does not sound good. If you have one working phone and you have swapped batteries around and still the same single phone works.... you know it's not the base unit, charger stands, power supplies or batteries. You have eliminated everything but the phone itself.
Unfortunatley these low end cordless phones cannot be expected to last. 6 months is pretty bad but I'm not surprized. These sell for $30 each new and I bet a replacement battery is $20.
