There isn't really much need for guidance on replacing the battery, but it would be helpful if you could provide some details on how long it takes for the first charge after replacement. I connected my charger after replacing the battery and it only lights up the back/menu/home keys below the screen - no indication of battery charging etc. and the phone cannot be powered yet. It's been charging for well over half an hour. Any advice?
