I did nothing but turn off my phone - it had lots of power when I turned it off and now nothing. It won't even take a charge when I plug it in. I didn't drop it or submerge it in water- NOTHING! Any ideas?

Ifthe cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall.
ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time.
Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.
i got the phone of ebay its a copy from china ive only had a week and wen i go 2 charg it sum times it will and other times it wont but even wen i try and turn it on it comes on for 3 seconds then goes strait off
The proper way of charging the battery on your phone is by waiting for your phone to indicate that it's running out of powe but not completelyr, if you frequently charge your phone even if it's not yet necessary(battery life indicator show half-way) the ability of the battery to store power will deminished hence the battery life is shorter. Last resort would be trying another battery unit to test if it's your battery of your phone that's causing the unsual battery drain.
Or you can try the following steps on conserving your phones battery life;
Turn off your Infrared and BlueTooth when not in use. Even when they are not in use, they do keep drawing power looking for signals.
Switch off the vibration alerts. Vibration causes a lot of power usage thereby making battery drain fast.
Re-adjust your screen brightness to around 50%. Screen power is another silent killer.
Usually, presetted Backlight durations are of pretty high order, this can be readjusted to get more from your battery. Try reducing the Backlight duration.
Often we don’t understand that playing games requires Light, Sounds and Shakes. This in turn leads to tripling of battery drainage.
Lower Ringing and other message sounds. This too helps saving a lot of battery.
Finally, do charge your battery before it gets drained fully. This enhances battery life.
First try drying out your phone for a day or two with lots of dry moving air gently blowing past and around it, the phone must be unplugged and battery removed during this process, then once everything has been dried try charging the battery in another phone just like it, if it charges and see it it will power the phone, if the battery works put t back into your phone and try to turn it on. If it doesn't work in your phone but it does in another then its the phone, if the phone works with another battery its the battery but dry them both totally first, even a few tiny specs of moisture can screw up your phone when power is running through it, so be careful.
