    I just had the same problem, but i had gotten batteries switched and i switched back to other one and it seems to work fine, so make sure you have correct battery and make sure it contacts right!! hope this works!!

    I had the same problem. At first I was able to change the battery with another old battery I owned and that worked fine. But then it happened again and changing the battery again would not help. I tried calling T-mobile and they said I needed to bring it in to a T-mobile store for them to see it first hand and for them to try a new battery. The tech at the store was not shocked to see the symbol and contacted T-mobile support who quickly agreed to replace the device at their cost.

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).
