I had to visit quite a few stores and finally purchased a used battery from a licensed dealer. With the new battery I was able to restart the phone and the new battery also held a charge. This phone is prone to overheating and gets what the phone tech called, "thermal shutdown." Too hot, it turns off or freezes up. I ran into other problems with this phone so I finally got a different one.
If the charging light comes on with the charger plugged in you probably have a broken power button. if the charging light does not come on while plugged in, your charging port most likely is damaged. take it to your local cell phone technician. if you havent any nearby you can contact www.fixphonenow.com ,they should be able to repair it.
try to plug in thew charger. if it indicates that it is charging then you most likely have a broken power switch. that is a common problem with this phone. if youcan get a local cellphone repair tech to service it, contact www.fixphonenow.com they can repair it.
Hold down the center nav key and power up the unit. This will restore any files that may have been corrupted and put them to original. If you loaded a 3 party app or something prior to this may be the cause of the issue. Don't use that app.
I would call them at 1-800-t-mobile to make sure your service is set up correctly (if it isn't it may explain why it takes so long to locate the network) or you could use their customer care site at http://www.t-mobile.com/Contact.aspx to find a store that will replace/repair it for you.
