My battery went dead on me last night. So I connect it to my PC with a USB cable and turn the phone on. I come back an hour latert to check on it and the phone is off. I turn the phone back on and it had not been charging. The phone is now fully charged BUT my address book is completely gone! All my numbers were stored on memory card. My pictures and games are still on the card but my address book is completely wiped. Any ideas? or am I screwed?

You can connect your phone with your pc by USB cable, after connect them, you may power on your cell phone and restore factory setting , power off your phone and take the battery out for a few minutes or a longer time, then turn your cell phone on, and don't charge it immediately.
If this can not help, you may try to change another battery, you may get much solutions about this problem here:www.1010store.com.
sometimes when battery becomes full discharged it takes time like hours to come up but over night charge will do it , if it dont check ur battery first if it is ok then ur set is dead there might be software issue seek help from support in ur country
I have the same problem. I think it happens when the battery goes completely dead. I didn't get my address book contacts back though. All my text msgs and numbers not on my sim got deleted. I wonder if its the battery or the phone.. hmmm....
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!
