    Consider it a godsend and return it for a Galaxy S2 like I did after 9 months of Focus/WP7 lol..

    Just kidding, well not really..  BUT have you tried restoring it back to it's previous version through Zune and see if that problem continues?? Seems like the easiest way to check and get your phone working properly again,  you can then do a reinstall of Mango and hopefully the glitch will be gone. 

    Just remember to backup your phone before restoring so you don't lose anything you may need later.  Good Luck!!

    Will it turn on if plugged into your charger??  For some reason AT&T Support is big on sending out batteries as a first fix.. If you have a AT&T Store close I'd  take the phone there and let them put a battery in, if it doesn't turn on when plugged in why would it turn on with a different battery.. Yes???  
    My point is  you will be without a phone waiting for a battery, then if that doesn't work you will be without a phone even longer waiting for a replacement phone..
