Couldn't find this specific problem in any other posts-- Just last night my phone stopped charging. Today it says battery life is very low (with the empty battery pic with the red slash through it) and for me to "connect to charger"
I have three different wall chargers (bc my bf uses the same kind) and they all work for his phone so I know there is something wrong with my phone (vs the charging equipment).
When it's plugged in, the battery status does not change, and it continues to tell me to plug into charger---HOWEVER, it does seem to recognize its plugged in to some degree, because when I UNplug it, it does the "beep beep beep" sound that indicates you should plug it back in.
So far I have tried:
turning it off and on (twice) then plugging back in
using all three different chargers
Help please! I just got a new battery last month...

Are the chargers specificly for the Ally? There are some that say Ally's won't charge on a non Ally charger. This change was due to the upgrade to Android 2.2.

It seems as though it is charging now, though very slowly...plus it still says "connect to charger..."

If it still says "connect to charger", it doesn't seem like it's actually charging correctly. You might try turning off the phone, remove the battery for about 30 seconds and then put it back in. Without turning on the phone, try the chargers again. If the chargers are working, the phone should power on and show the red charging led. If still no luck, try connecting to a powered USB port on a PC. At least one of the charging methods should work. If you still can't get the battery to charge, I would back up anything you want off of the phone. Take it to a Verizon store and have them try a known working charger and battery. They may have you perform a Factory Reset (hence the backup).
Others have reported that turning off (uncheck) Debugging has helped them charge again (one poster wrote it made no difference but a few others said it worked).
