Just put a piece of paper on the top of the battery (the part where u push it down) it shows the battery with a red line slashed across because its too loose...

it worked for me!

Check the battery terminals...take the battery out and see if any of the 4 connecters are damaged (they break easily...happend to me twice, both times after being dropped)

Sounds like the display. There is a warranty on the unit. Contact your provider to find out what your service and replacement options are.

Blackberry curve wont turn on. it died then i took it home and went to charge it and the red light comes on for about 2 seconds then nothing happens and i cant turn it on


Does the phone come on while plugged in? To me it seems that the battery is dead. If you feel the battery is fine then you must visit the BB Service Center.

My blackberry pearl has a battery showing with a red line through it. I have charged the battery and put a brand new battery that is charged in it but the same signal keeps showing up.


There might be a problem with the USB cable. Kindly walk into the service center to get a new USB cable and try charging the Handheld.

Wont charge/hold a charge


That definitely is a battery issue. The battery is either Low Soc or it is a failed battery. Most batteries on PDA's usually fail within a year because of the immense amount of use the phone has and the majority of the time the batteries are smaller in a PDA. Take your battery to a service center if one is in your area or call your carrier and inquire about the warranty on batteries (usually 1-year).
