I have had this less than a year and it won't take charge at all now. I plug it into the wall, and magnetically hook the jawbone to the charger, but no red light will come on at all now. I use my jawbone for my job, and now what am i gonna do?

If the cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
I found this on another website and it worked for me.
"I was also having a lot of difficulty getting my Jawbone II or "new
Jawbone" into pairing mode. I finally ended up carefully removing the
outer plastic shield. It popped off without breaking anything and then I
was able to easily press BOTH the noise shield button AND the talk
button. With the plastic cover OFF, I was able to put my Jawbone into
pairing mode on the FIRST TRY!"
My old Panasonic Palmcorder IQ shows a red light in both switch positions-camera and VCR. Maybe yours has red for camera and green for VCR so you could tell them apart. I found that the Panasonic battery that came with the camera was the cheapest kind with the least charging time. I bought other batteries, they were good for a while, but now, many years later, they won' t hold a charge. Since I am only recording inside of my house, I have resorted to using the AC wall socket for power. I have to take the battery out of the camera. I found a power plug-in hole (like ones on cell phones) in the battery compartment. I also found one of these holes on my battery charger. My camera came with a double ended power plug. I plug one end into my camera and the other end into the battery charger. I plug the charger power cord into the wall outlet, and I have power to my older camera. Maybe you can find this double ended power cord at a store or on line.
Did you know that there are 2 kinds of batteries? Some have memories and others do not rely on a memory. The ones with memories have to be fully discharged or they will only charge a little, and keep charging less and less each time they are charged. The ones without the memory can be charged fully without being discharged fully. Check into battery information on line to get more information. Maybe you can get the non-memory kind.
My jawbone was not charging at all, but then I looked at the prongs on the charger and I saw that one of them was shorter than the others, so I got a pair of small needle nose pliers and gently pulled on it. It returned to its normal length and I plugged it up. It is now charging normally. Jawbone should design a better charging system.
Is this the first time you're pairing iPhone and jawbone or it's been working before?
If this is the first time,
1. Go to settings-general-bluetooth and turn on the bluetooth on your iPhone
2. Press and hold the button above the LED light until the LED light flashes Red and White
3. Go to your iPhone and click on Jawbone and it should connect.
If it's been working before:
1. Make sure Jawbone is fully charged.
2. Press and hold the button below the LED until white light blinks
3. Go to iPhone make sure bluetooth is on press Jawbone to connect
If this procedure fails try the to follow the First Time Pairing Instruction
